MadDog's Spring Break Big 255 Board Edition

With the draft less than four weeks away, here is my latest full draft projection. In this draft, I have loosely created a mock for the first round. Beyond the first round, I have put players in a general slotting area. In other words, I believe Tim Tebow is going to be drafted somewhere in that 35-40 range, and in this projection, I slotted him at 37.

I have added one wrinkle to this Big Board: Now that the NFL has finished assigning compensatory picks, I have slotted a projected 49ers pick that matches team needs in the 13th, 17th, 49th, 79th, 113th, 145th, 182nd, 206th, and 224th slot. I'd be happy to break down any of these players (the list is full of relatively unknown players, so you might scratch your head).

This board will continue to be tweaked as time passes, and may have some errors that need editing. I seem dyslexic with West Virginia and Virginia Tech players this offseason. If you see typos, wrong teams, positions, please let me know.

Enjoy the ride, and feel free to ask any question. Cheers.

P.S. This is not a ranking, nor a wish list. Simply how I see the slotting taking place along the 3-day draft path. One final note: Do not be surprised to see the Rams move that 33rd overall pick to another team to select Tim Tebow, or another skilled position player. Since the draft is elongated to 3 days, the first round is the first day. This allows the Rams almost half a day to receive trade offers for the 33rd pick before the 2nd round begins, and since Bradford will more than likely be taken number one overall, the Rams could be the big winner in a bidding war.

Only slotted pick I might -- and note the "might" -- not agree with is Mullins. And it's not with the player, but the slot. Mullins had a freak-show of a Pro-Day, clocking in the 4.8-4.9 range at 6-1 320 pounds, but he never really did anything in his college career, and was part of a rotation.

I might wait until the 7th, but I can consider that some team like Oakland would take the guy based purely on athletic ability before we're up. Wouldn't hate the pick, but it depends on who else is there.

Everybody else I like, so, .
so is brandon graham this year's quentin groves or lamar woodley ?
I am surprised with the Brown pick at 17, I would have thought he could be had trading back 6 or so spots and picking up another 3rd.
I would like a breakdown of Charles Brown since he hasn't been discussed by this board too much.
Thanks MD. What do see as the chances the Niners trade up or down, particularly in the 1st and 2nd rounds?
I'll try to answer a couple responses about Brown in this post:

I think Brown is going to have inflationary value on draft day due to the number of top 10 teams that will target OT, and well as the Niners at either 13 or 17.

As we have seen before, once the top tier of OT's are off the board, the next tier of OT's seem to make bonus money, as teams "reach" for OL. This will probably be the case with Brown.

Charles Brown is a very talented OT. He was selected the best OL in the Pac-10 by Pac-10 defensive linemen in receiving the Morris Trophy (a better judge than writers or coaches, in my opinion). He is one of those converted TE's (Joe Staley was the same). Brown has stacked on about 15-20 pounds this last year, and has the frame to add more. He's listed at 6'6", 305, and has very long arms (a bonus for an OT).

Brown's strength is pass protection, and he will need time to gain strength (only 21 reps at 225), and technique to improve run blocking. He could give Staley a run for his money at the LT position (this could be a solid battle). In the end, the Niners may be best suited to move Staley to RT, as he is a developing run-blocker, and decent pass protecting LT. Brown, in my opinion, has a bit more long-range upside at LT than Staley.

USC's Pro-Days always seem to bring out the best in their players, and I think Brown will look terrific in drills and in running. I expect a sub-5.00 time.

Woodley. He simply beats everyone consistently. This really matches what Woodley looked like at Michigan, versus some of the inconsistency we saw from Groves at Auburn.

The cream rises to the top in these post-season All-Star games. And, Graham was virtually unblockable. I don't see any reason why he will suddenly hit a wall in the NFL, since he is not a one-trick pony running around the edge. He can beat you so many ways.

I doubt they trade up with their two selections. They'd have to be completely infatuated with one of the OT's. If they go OT with the 13th pick, I'd lay money the 17th pick goes on the auction block.

This is a pretty deep draft, so I wouldn't be surprise if the team simply stays put. Much will depend on two factors:
1) When do they pull the trigger on an OL.
2) At what point do they realize the PR they need may be gone soon, so they better grab him now.

This is pretty much going to be the two keys to the Niners' draft.
If Spiller goes in the top 12, and all 3 tops tackles are still gone, who would you take?

You have Graham at 26 but do you think he would be a reach at 13?

Mad, I see you have TENN taking Davis. Who would you take if Davis was available at #17, Davis or Brown?
I would be shocked if KC took Trent Williams and passed on Eric Berry.

wouldn't be the draft if fans weren't shocked by something in the first round

True but #5 is way too high for a guy that struggled at LT

Yeah, he was stuck in a bad situation, parked behind Balmer, Thomas, Austin at North Carolina. I think teams might give him some slack due to that depth chart.

The monster workout was impressive, and as you know, there are so many teams converting to the 3-4. Tony Pauline from SI and TFY said that he might have sealed a top 75 pick, which would be quite a quantum leap.
