Not a chance he'll be around in the late 2nd with his measurables. Its just like last year, the 49ers had their shot at Wolfe and Reyes with their late 1st round pick. This guy's measurables will have him drafted earlier than he rightfully should so if the 49ers like him, they may need to reach just a little bit. That is assuming he doesn't develop a crazy cloud of momentum in the offseason and moves into the mid-1st round.
Let's assume that your are correct. Hunt will not be there when it comes time for our second round pick.
What are our options and what should we do?
One option is too trade up, but that option can only be exercised if there is a willing trading partner.
The second option is just forget about drafting him, and take someone else.
The last option, and most controversial, is to draft him in the first.
I am ambivalent about what we should do.
If we has him rated as a top ten pick in the second round, and Floyd is gone, I would pull the trigger.
What do you guys think?
