Regardless of how the 49ers did in this mock I dont like it for several reasons. He has Rueban Randle, Jeral Worthy and Jered Crick all in the first round. Worthy 2-4, Randle would be a reach late 2nd and prob goes 3-4, and Crick's injury will push him way out of the first round. He also has Luke Kuechly, the drafts top MLB going 32 to the Giants. I like Fleener but the draft has ZERO credibility....The fact he works in sports is sad.....If that mock was made in September it would have made a little more sense. Before Crick got hurt, when Worthy was a top rated DT, when LSU had Lee at QB throwing to Randle, and before Kuechly had like 200 freaking tackles....
PS: Toon in the 2nd is a reach. He is slow in and out of breaks and at this point has not shown he has the separation skills that will translate to the NFL. Right now he's just a big receiver. 3rd or 4th round prospect. Again a guy who was a hot name early in the season.
Here is his reasoning for rating Randle so high:
The Z-Report Says: The Texans biggest need is at WR and Randle has the size and speed that will intrigue Gary Kubiak and Rick Smith. Randle has the ability to return punts and he's a legitimate verticle threat. The producitivity for Randle was sporadic, but that was often due to the poor QB play he had to deal with.
