OTC's 2012 first round mock

Charlie Cassely called Barron the 7th best prospect in the draft and that there's quite a buzz about him. He's looking like a done deal in the top 20.
Just to add to the Barron statement: After thinking about it, considering he is the top safety and the only one who could be considered a first round prospect (maybe Martin if he hadn't gotten hurt), I can see him going in the first, even though I'm not sure his true value as a player is anywhere NEAR Top 20.

I'm all for it actually. I'd be happy because it'd push another good player down our way.

And Charlie Casserly drafted Heath Shuler, he aint right about everything. I looked up his draft history with Safeties and the only safeties I see he took were 5th rounder Leomont Evans in 96 and 5th rounder Jamel Williams in 97. Neither panned out.
Will look to update again this weekend -- shooting for Friday. Check back soon.
It's not going to be in this mock that I post in a little bit here, but in the next one I may project a Philly trade up into the first. I think they are seriously going to push hard to get ahead of the Panthers to try to take DT Fletcher Cox OR ahead of Tampa to take Claiborne. Aside from maybe Floyd or Tannehill (even more doubtful), I really don't see any other players Philly would seriously be after.

If they trade with Cleveland, it'll have be them giving up the farm, because I'm not sure the Browns want to move down so far that they miss a shot at Blackmon, Richardson, AND Floyd. Philly would surely be giving up Asante Samuel and a ton of picks.

Seems like the Niners go after guys they like, regardless if the general community thinks they overpaid for them or not. Z looks to fill the only real hole for them. A great scenario would be someone trading up for that pick and them still selecting him and also getting another lower round pick in the deal.

Ideally, I think we could get exceptional value and still land an outstanding player if we trade down with a desperate team and pluck a 2013 first rounder from that team.

Could try something like say, Our #30 for a 2013 first round pick and a 2012 2nd rounder. Unlikely, but you never know.

Would jump on that in a heart beat!
as much as I hate not taking the sexy pick, OG makes the most sense.

I agreed. As much as we need WR weapons, the position was some what addressed with the signing of Moss and Manningham. But in the offensive guard position they came out worse than before with the loss of Synder. I think it's a reasonably good call by OTC.

This is exactly what I was thinking especially if it's for the fourth QB off the board. Just like the '07 where Indy gave us their 1st for our second to pick Ugoh, we need some QB needy team to give us their 1st AND second. Given the rocketing value of franchise QBs, I can see it.

Then we could still land a great player at the beginning of second while adding a very valuable extra first for next year's draft.

Me likey a lot!!!

I'm rather astonished at the disrespectful scoffing at this recent mock in the comments area, and half of it doesn't even have to do with the 49ers. I guess it's what you get when there is zero desire to use critical thinking or make any sort of an effort to perceive beyond the surface-deep level of a pick.

OTC, how do you rank the guards in this draft? I'm a big fan of Brandon Brooks with his size and athleticism.

They always throw sticks at the biggest apples on the tree.
