Round 2(From Trade Down)-Kendall Reyes-DE-UConn-Total athletic freak, a non-stop motor, powerful bull-rusher, this is the guy who could create a dominant 3 DE rotation for the 49ers, which is important because when the DE's were getting a major push the rest of the defense looked many times better. Giving McDonald and Smith regular breathers could provide major dividends without a drop-off in performance. In time Reyes could supplant McDonald or be the eventual replacement for Justin.
Round 2-Trade Down Uno Mas.
Round 3(From Trade Down 1)-Marvin Jones-Cal-WR-He's not spectacular, but he does everything well, he's a willing blocker, he runs good routes, he's played all the WR positions, he has good leaping ability, good speed, he's just solid all around and would be a welcome contributor to the 49ers. One of the most pro-ready receivers in the draft.
Round 3(From Trade 2)-Marvin McNutt-Iowa-WR-Good size at 6-3, solid speed, good hands, two Marvin's don't make a right but they do make for a nice 49ers receiving corps.
Round 3-Josh Robinson-Central Florida-CB-Just ran the fastest combine time in the 40, impressive starter, held his own against several NFL-caliber WR's including AJ Green. Has great hips, flexibility, questions about his size....also just like Kyle Williams, don't let him return any punts.
Round 4-Miles Burris-San Diego State-OLB-Did very well at the combines, a very solid 3-4 prospect, good potential 3rd down pass-rusher.
Round 5(from Trade 2)-Christian Thompson-South Carolina St-FS-A Harbaugh special, very raw, athletic, good ceiling, small school guy who could provide depth and maybe be an asset to special teams as well.
Round 5-George Bryan-NC State-TE-Didn't show at the combine, a strong-handed receiver, not fast, but hands are like glue, catches everything with-in reach near him, a very good blocker, not fast, but has good physical size.
Round 6-Antoine McClain-Clemson-OG-Big physical guard, didn't do so hot at the combines but has the raw talent that can be molded and at least be used for depth.
Round 7-Chris Owusu-Stanford-WR-Too good to not get picked, concussion worries will drop him way down the boards and possibly out of the draft however he is very familiar with this offense and with Harbaugh and could be additional solid depth at WR that this team so badly needs.
So with this draft the 49ers would basically be replacing Swain, Braylon Edwards and Hastings with Marvin Jones, Marvin McNutt and possibly Owusu.
