He's not the only one...they could go after Silatolu, Brooks, et al. Harbaugh's all about competition...and he'd love to get a starting quality OG/C in this draft.
i will acknowledge that your point is well taken and could be correct.
We will find out in a couple of days.
Baalke does not seem to be very predictable.
I like your draft a lot.
But I agree with CNF on this one. The Niners IMO will draft a OLineman and I would bet in the first couple of rounds. Signing any vet at this stage is a very stop-gap move; not good planning or roster building for the future. OLinemen have to be brought in and developed for the future as a foundation for the offense.
I like Hill a lot, but he is all about potential. My election would be Streeter in the 3rd or, hopefully, the 4th - a similar unpolished speedy receiver with big upside (who won't be expected to produce right away), and go DL/OLB and OL in the first two rounds. I just feel that is how it will shake out. RB next year in what is expected to be a loaded class.
Of course this all depends on who is available when it's the Niners turn to pick, so there could be a surprise or two. Also, as you say, Baalke is unpredictable.
Well thought out mock, though. Thanks.
