A little help from the Zone: Did any draft sites predict we would draft Aldon Smith?

Mods: You can lock this thread up after I get a solid answer.

I have searched several different ways, but I cant seem to find anything from any sites that had us drafting Aldon Smith.

Do any of you know of any?
Most mocks i've seen had him going to Houston

Wade Phillips had a hard on for Aldon, real talk.
Yes, I recall that Aldon was slotted at the 10-15 range.

I don't remember a single site predicting the 49ers to draft him at #7. If there were, I would be really interested in seeing how they predict this years draft.
Mcshay had us taking Aldon in one of his mocks

This is much easier although might not have as many mocks in their database as walterfootball or extremeskins

http://www.49erswebzone.com/draft/2011/

32 Mock Drafts CB Patrick Peterson, LSU
13 Mock Drafts QB Blaine Gabbert, Missouri
9 Mock Drafts DE Robert Quinn, North Carolina
9 Mock Drafts CB Prince Amukamara, Nebraska
3 Mock Drafts OLB Von Miller, Texas A&M
2 Mock Drafts DE Cameron Jordan, California
1 Mock Draft DE/DT Nick Fairley, Auburn
1 Mock Draft WR AJ Green, Georgia
1 Mock Draft DE/DT Marcell Dareus, Alabama

But these were final mocks... some previous mocks might have had him to us.

Here is 2012
17 Mock Drafts TE Coby Fleener, Stanford
7 Mock Drafts OG Kevin Zeitler, Wisconsin
6 Mock Drafts WR Kendall Wright, Baylor
6 Mock Drafts WR Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech
5 Mock Drafts WR Mohamed Sanu, Rutgers
4 Mock Drafts C Peter Konz, Wisconsin
3 Mock Drafts WR Rueben Randle, LSU
3 Mock Drafts DT/DE Devon Still, Penn State
3 Mock Drafts OG Amini Silatolu, Midwestern State
3 Mock Drafts CB Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama

2 Mock Drafts
DT Jerel Worthy, Michigan State, CB Brandon Boykin, Georgia, WR Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina, LB Andre Branch, Clemson, OT Mike Adams, Ohio State, CB Josh Robinson, Central Florida, CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina

1 Mock Draft with
DE Chandler Jones, Syracuse, DT Dontari Poe, Memphis, CB Jayron Hosley, Virginia Tech, DE/OLB Nick Perry, USC, DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State, OG Cordy Glenn, Georgia, DT Brandon Thompson, Clemson, OT Jonathan Martin, Stanford, RB David Wilson, Virginia Tech, NT Alameda Ta'amu, Washington, CB Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska, DT Kendall Reyes, Connecticut, WR Dwight Jones, UNC, DE/OLB Whitney Mercilus, Illinois, OT/G Kelechi Osemele, Iowa State

I'm assuming the Dwight Jones, Fletcher Cox, Cordy Glenn are probably out of date.

Michael Lombardi also had us taking Aldon in an nfl.com video mock

None that I saw, but when we were on the clock I was yelling for Aldon or Quinn. Can I haz cookie?
Thanks! So no one had us drafting Aldon Smith.

Man I can't wait to see what surprise Baalke and Harbaugh have for us this year. I have a feeling we will not be staying at #30, either trading up or down.
I can't wait to see whet Baalke/JH have up their sleeves.

Trade Up? Trade Down? Futures?

It's like great poker.

Cam Inman tweeted that off all of our pre-draft visits only Kaepernick, Hunter and Hastings were either drafted or signed to the team in 2011 so we really wont have a bloody clue who we will be taking at 30.

Aldon not visiting us probably threw off all the draftniks.

Do they ever get our team's top pick right? Did many teams see us picking a.Davis/Iupati or Crabtree?

Don't know about Davis/Iupati, but I don't think many expected Crabtree to drop to us. A whole lot of people were scratching their heads when the Raiders passed on him to get DHB.

Yeah something unexpected like that always happens. I doubt anyone saw us trading up and taking TWO OL that's for sure but it was a need and one or the other probably ended up mocked at our spot, but I don't remember. Crab probably fell because he didn't run at the combine or pro day and Davis was always a stop watch drafter at skill positions.

So who knows, someone falls to us, or we pull of some crazy trade scenario.
