Around Syracuse, Chandler Jones has been interviewed the last few days on our local stations. It sounds as if he won't fall past number 23, as the Lions are rumored to take him if he is still on the board.
If that happens, most mock's have the lions taking a DB with that pick.
It is possible that one of Janoris Jenkins or Dre Kirkpatrick will be available at 30.
Do the Niners go ahead and get a lockdown CB with that pick?
I think Fleener will be off the board, and at that point any WR or OG left could find someone with just as much value in the third or fourth round.

Look for the Lions to buck the norm and take a player who adds to a strength. My guess is DET grabs Alshon Jefery or Stephen Hill to give Matt Stafford even more downfield firepower.
I would laugh my tail off if they pick another WR in the first round.
Although, with Megatron being on the cover of Madden, they may need to do that for insurance.

I really believe that Baalke doesn't rate cb as a high position of need. I think its actualy pretty low on his list. With that said, f**k the lionesses.
Agree, otherwise he would have drafted a top CB last year. Also the responsibilities of our CB were mostly cover 3 or zone coverage. Tagging Goldson and the number of Safeties we had last preseason is a good indicator that Baalke highly values the Safety position. Drafting Culliver, a player who can also play Safety is also another indication.
I think Jenkins is a jackass, BUT, he is talented. I think Jenkins or Alshon Jeffrey are the guys in hoping for (deep down). I believe in Jeffrey. I'm seeing through blinders with janoris. I keep thinking about his impact as a true cover man. I have little doubt that the trouble will follow him though.
... Got side tracked. Kirkpatrick is a good CB, but I don't see anything special about him. I don't think he'd offer anything that Culliver and Rogers already have.
