If Peterson, Miller, and Quinn are gone by #7, do you consider Gabbert, if he's there? and do you pull the trigger?
It depends who is on the board at the time, and how the remaining players answer questions about themselves from their campus workout.
For me, Dareus is a terrific DL prospect, but I'd only look for him if he can sustain his weight at around 315+ pounds, and more importantly, put up more reps of 225. He lifted the bar only 24 times, and that is a concern for a guy built to play the NT position. I believe there is a better 3-4 DE on the board in Watt.
For AJ Green, what do the Niners think about Josh Morgan? If he is a number 3 or 4 for them, then Green has to be seriously considered.
Gabbert simply needs to throw well at the combine. The same goes for Newton. Both are in position to be top 10 picks, but Harbaugh will have to judge whether they can transition well to the NFL.
How much of a priority is it for the Niners to draft a CB right away with the 7th overall, and is Prince good value at the pick?
There are a ton of variables, including the rise of Watt and Jordan. Could they sneak into the top 10 picks.
