I tried to go for value more than anything in my latest mock. I believe the top three OTs will be gone by the time our first pick comes around. I don't expect everyone to like this mock, but I tried to put a lot of effort into it. I hope you appreciate it!

Overall I like it. A few things I would do differently:
Not a big fan of Capers at OT, especially in the second. The rap on him is that he isn't a consistent pass blocker and that is the biggest issue the Niners have with the OT spot. I would go for Saffold or Ducasse at this point of the draft if available
Shipley doesn't do it for me either in the third. I think the Niners need some speed at WR and that is not Shipley's strength. Someone like Emmanuel Sanders SMU with his 4.4 speed would be good here.
Banks is too big of a character risk and too small IMO. Leroy Vann would be my pick at this spot.
I disagree about Shipley in the sense that we need a true slot receiver. Part of the reason why we do so much with Delanie is we don't have anyone whose best position is in the slots.
