Rams draft Cordy Glenn at 6 over Blackomon. Bank on it
I think the Rams are going somewhere other than Blackmon. Looking back at Fisher's drafts with TEN that guy LOVED taking corners in the first round. I think his team took corners in like 4 of the last 10 drafts when he was there. Pacman, Woolfork, Dyson, Griffin (moved to FS). And the Rams greatest flaw as a team is their secondary. I think the Blackmon correlation is just a media thing.
I think if Claiborne falls he makes sense or even a big reach for Stephon Gilmore could be a surprise moment. I also expect them to really try to trade down again for more picks.
I don't hear any positives about Blackmon going into this draft. I think the general consensus is he is pretty good but he's done nothing to distinguish himself during the evaluation period.

I was just thinking this the other day. I feel like Harbaugh may have a Gruden-esque love of QBs. So while logically I don't expect the 49ers to draft a QB. If one slips and is sitting there at their pick - I fully expect them to pull the trigger on bringing in another young QB. Harbaugh loves competition, the team doesn't have a ton of holes if they can fill in with a lineman and receiver in rounds 1 and/or 2 it makes a lot of sense if you are a QB-accumulator like Gruden to take a shot on a QB. Obviously the team was willing to take a shot on Manning.

9ers got a 4th qB for a reason, and JJ is there because somebody(s) still wants Kap badly and wants him in exchg for moving up or in exchg for another 1st/2nd rd pick. Somehow Baalke snags both Zeitler and Fleener. Nah, that would be too much to ask for. But we did get a 4th QB for a reason....
Based on last yr, somebody already said it, we pass on Fleener and end up with somebody no one has heard of and he lights up the team. I don't think Aldon Smith was a lucky guess. They (B& H) knew.
Remember Parcells last year on an ESPN pre-draft show he gave you an entire spreadsheet of the average NFL player and their stats at each position, wingspan, height, weight, handsize etc. Baalke is supposedly a disciple of Parcells and we've heard McCloughan spout the same things from Ron Wolf (ie not drafting smaller WRs like Desean Jackson because the NFL is a big man's game.)
Aldon Smith strikes me as a unique talent with amazing wingspan, great height, ability to put on more weight. I think he looked more developmental to most last year and people were surprised how quickly he became a stud.
But if there is a random choice at 30, my best guess is it will be some player who is a bit of an outlier the measurables, someone who could be coached up and fit into the 49ers systems. I don't know who that is right now but I'm gonna go do some research.
49ers pull a Belichik and trade #30 and #92 to the Eagles, Jets, Titans or Chargers for next year's #1 and this year's #2. That team sucks next year and we have a top 3 pick to go with our #32 pick next year. With all that, here is what the 49ers get.
1 - NONE
2a (mid round) - WR - Alshon Jeffrey
2b (ours) - RB - David Wilson
3 - NONE
4 - DL - Jared Crick
5 - CB - Coryell Judie
6 - C - Phillip Blake
7 - T - Levy Adcock
1a - QB - Matt Barkley
1b (#32 obviously) - RB - Marcus Lattimore
I'm not gonna even try and go past this.
