I've been a 49er fan all my life, my dad started bringing me to games at Candlestick back in the mid-80's. I've been a fan of the 49erswebzone for a while now, but this will be the first time I've posted a draft. Here we go:
1st round - Coby Fleener, TE Stanford
Unless we get Wallace from Pittsburgh, we need a play maker here for our offense. I choose Fleener because has knows Greg Roman's offense and can provide another match-up problem for defenses. This should free up Vernon Davis a bit and improve our offense.
2nd round - Amini Silatolu, OG Midwestern State
I'm hoping they resign Adam Snyder, he played well enough for a career backup last year, but we need to draft his eventual replacement. Silatolu is a raw prospect, but if he's given a year or two to sit and learn behind Snyder, he may be something special. An O-line of Staley, Iupati, Goodwin, Silatolu, Davis looks pretty good to me.
3rd round - Joch Norman, CB Coastal Carolina
This guy combines good size and speed and all-around good game. If Rogers leaves via free agency, that should press Culliver into the starting lineup (barring a FA pickup) along side Tarell Brown, and I think Norman would be able to challenge Brock for the nickel CB job.
4th round - Robert Turbin, RB Utah State
Very high on this guy. good size (5'10", 222) and an outstanding all around athlete. Seems to have the blue collar mentality that Harbuagh loves. He needs to work on his pass blocking skills, but Rathman will be able to get him on the right path. May be Gore's eventual replacement.
5th round - Sean Cattouse, SS California
Probably just a ST guy but could become a good SS from watching and learning behind Whitner.
6th round - Derek Wolfe, DL Cincinnati
Been intrigued with this guy for a while now. May be a good fit in our DL rotation. Nice combination of size, speed and motor. After a decent combine showing, he might not last until the end of the 6th, though.
7th round - Chris Owusu, WR Stanford
I know most people will be sacred off by his concussion history, but I think Harbaugh may not want to take a chance and miss out on another one of his old Stanford guys. he could have drafted WR Doug Baldwin last year, but didn't and Seattle wound up with a heck of a WR. This guy tied for the fastest time among WR's at the combine, and he knows Roman's offense. In my mind that's too many positives for the team to not draft this guy in the 7th.
