2012 Pre Combine Mock

The combine always has the possibility of changing things but our depth chart looks like this next year:

RB: Gore, Hunter, Dixon
FB: Miller
HBack: Walker, Byham
TE: Davis, Fleener (1st Round Pick)
OT: Staley, Davis, Boone
OG: Snyder (3 year, 2.5 mil per), Iupati, Kilgore,
C: Goodwin, (DRAFT?)
WR: Crabtree, D. Jackson (5 year 7 mil per), Morgan (3 year 1.5 mil per), Ginn, Gerell Robinson (3rd round pick), Williams
QB: Smith (3 year, 8 mil per), J. Johnson (1 year, 2 mil), Kap

S: Goldson (5 year, 6 mil per), Whitner, Spillman, Jones
CB: Rogers (3 year, 6 mil per), Brown, Culliver, (DRAFT), (DRAFT)
OLB: Brooks (5 year, 4 mil per), Smith, Haralson, (DRAFT)
ILB: Bowman, Willis, Grant, Goodwin, Costanzo
DE/DT: Smith, McDonald, Dobbs, Crick (4th round)
NG: Sopoaga, Jean-Francois, I. Williams

I don't know what Goodwin and Costanzo will get but it won't take much to keep them here. On the contracts, obviously there is some play in the joints with years, salary and signing bonus, but I think the general figures are right.

P.S. Were dumping Gore after this next season and possible replacements are Ball from Wisconsin or Taylor from Stanford.
so where's the draft???
Crick is a 4th rounder?

We don't need no TE in the 1st, we need a WR.

Pretty solid off-season mock. I like the free agent signings....but where is Lord Tolzien on the depth chart!?

4th round seems too low for Jared Crick. He's probably limited to playing 5-tech for 3-4 teams (doesn't fit 4-3) so that lack of versatility might drop him. I still think he goes 2nd round though.

3rd round seems too high for Gerell Robinson. He had a great senior season, but doesn't look like anything special. He's a 3rd day kind of guy to me.

I agree, but I don't see any WR at that point that will give us more firepower on offense above Fleener. Smith needs a tall TE to throw to in the redzone like the other QB's do.

our RZ was fine as season went on we were 6/8 to end season and against the saints e only kicked like 1 FG fleener would be nice but id rather take sanu wright instead of fleener given our current roster

after FA that might change
So let's bring in a career back up in Johnson and give him all CK's 2nd team reps that he needs to develop. Makes perfect sense.

get dwayne bowe/Vincent Jackson and Wes Welker... Then draft that 1st round TE, draft a RB in the 2nd.. Then trade the rest of our draft to acquire Bowe/Welker.. Resign EVERYONE on this last years team, then move forward with picks 1-6 next year after winning the superbowl.
Crick is a 1st-2nd rounder. Gerrell is a 5th-6th rounder.
The fight here is between Wide Receiver And cornerback, its going to depend on whose available and free agent acquisitions. Also like to dump Crabtree! Don't know what we would get? I,m sure Baalke will draft best available.

Because CK's development is a huge point of emphasis

What's the difference between a TE and a WR?


Seriously? Harbaugh plays pretty much a full 2 TE gameplan anyways. If a 6'6" TE is more of a threat to opposing defenses than any receiver you can find at the back end of the 1st round, what's the difference to you?

This, Delanie Walker is 6 feet tall. That's why he's easily covered by a safety. Put Fleener and Vernon Davis on the field at the same time and the defense has to adjust their matchup to compensate. Put Crabtree and Sanu on the same field.....and the Giants press defense still shuts this offense down.

Most importantly that BIG target going across the middle of the field on third down. Fleener has better hands and is a better route runner than any TE on the 49ers right now. Adding him in as a 1-2 TE duo with VD would make teams have to compensate by either moving into a nickel package or adding extra LB's...etc.

Why not make life more difficult for opposing defensive coordinators?
