Easily Quinn, he has the size and athleticism to play DE or OLB and can move amazingly. Second most favorite is Amukamara because of the "Darelle Revis Mystique". His skills from 2009 absolutely made QBs avoid him in 2010 and he still played out of his mind. I personally doubt he will be there because of AZ, I know a lot of people don't see him going there but if Seattle is favored to take their "Hometown Hero" Jake Locker then why wouldn't the Cards take another AZ kid with #5? They did it with Max Hall, they didn't draft him but it was widely known that the fact he went to high school in AZ was the main reason they gave him a shot. Sorry to go off topic, I might consider him a reach but Aldon Smith is a very intriguing possibility at #7, however unlikely it is.
Not the popular opine, no doubt about that, but I'd take QB at 7. It's the most important position in the game and the top QBs are preferable to the 2nd tier. If Harbaugh covets one of the second tier guys then by all means wait and grab the top defensive talent at #7. My QB board looks like this...
Gabbert, Newton, Locker
Everyone in each tier I view as about even so they are listed in no particular order.
It's a stone cold lock that one (and likely that two) of the top tier QBs as listed above will be on the board at 7. We will certainly have plenty of options no matter what your preference, QB or otherwise.
I know it won't be the popular pick around here, but I'd take AJ Green - the guy is probably the second best prospect in the draft behind Peterson and the thought of pairing him and Crabtree for the next 5 years is very intriguing. I realize we need a pass rush and secondary help (not to mention a franchise QB) but if we are investing that kind of money in a player at #7, I'd like the closest thing to a can't miss prospect and Green is certainly that.
