NFL Draft -
Trade: 49ers trade 1st round pick for Browns 2nd and 4th round draft picks. Point value is even.
Why for the Browns? After addressing the RB and WR positions with their first two picks, they now need to protect McCoy by trading up to select Mike Adams - OT - Ohio State. They have an extra 4th round pick via the Falcons trade, so they have ammo to move up.
Why for the 49ers? Baalke determines that he can trade back and still get first round value BPA pick.
R2: Kevin Zeitler - OG - Wisconsin (via Browns)
*With this pick, we immediately address the RG void, and Kilgore becomes the successor to Goodwin at center. He's good value in this range, and we draft a guy that will immediately start - not a Kentwan Balmer developmental pick.
R2: Jared Crick - DT/DE - Nebraska
*Other D-line prospects and Crick's injury pushes him down to the end of the second round. Outside of our starters, we have no playmakers in a situational/reserve role. Crick can spell McDonald and Smith on a rotational basis, and provides a security blanket if McDonald gets injured.
R3: Michael Egnew - TE - Missouri
*Moss, Davis, and now Egnew provides solid BIG weapons for Alex to utilize on 3rd downs and goal line situations. Egnew has great route running skills for a TE and has great hands. Not much of a blocker, but Harbaugh loves using extra OL in this capacity instead.
R4: Aaron Henry - FS - Wisconsin (via Browns)
*Henry is a good, not great safety prospect that will provide depth and possible replacement for Dashon Goldson. Due to the draft talent in the secondary, there's a good chance he'll slip to this spot in the early fourth.
R4: Chase Minnifield - CB - Virginia
*Once a 2nd round prospect, Minnifield's stock has dropped due to poor combine and pro day numbers, along with measuring in at 5-10. But the game tape doesn't lie. Fantastic value in the fourth round as a possible replacement for T.Brown if he's not resigned. Also provides additional depth if Culliver moves to free safety should Goldson bolt in 2013.
R5: Jacquies Smith - DE/OLB - Missouri
*With Haralson in his last contract year, we need to add depth at the position. While Jacquies is not on the same tier as Aldon Smith, Jacquies had some talent to develop into a role player on this team. Plus, we need to add another Smith to the roster.
R6: Chris Owusu - WR - Stanford
*I think the 49ers are locked with Crabtree, Moss, Manningham, and Ginn as the 4 active WRs on gameday. Owusu would provide great competition for Williams, as Owusu has underrated speed and hands. I don't believe in drafting a WR in the first 4 rounds if they aren't going to even be active on game day. Worst case: Owusu ends up on the practice squad...which may be the best thing for him due to his concussion issues.
R7: Landon Walker - OT - Clemson
*Competition with Derek Hall and others for the final offensive line spot. Walker is solely a RT with potential to play guard.
ST: Akers, Lee, Jennings
