With the college football season over and the Senior Bowl and Combine yet to come, here is my second attempt at a mock:
Alex Smith (he will be cut and will not be traded)
Choices based on prospect rankings from NFLDraftScout.com dated 1/6/13.
Round 1 John Jenkins NT Georgia 6'3" 358 lbs - Niners stay where they are at the end of the first and take BPA at a position of need
Round 2 Margus Hunt DE SMU 6'7" 280 lbs - freakish athletic ability who is still developing as a football player; Tomsula's next project
Round 3 (From Carolina) Quinton Patton WR La Tech 6'2" 195 lbs - need to replenish the WR position with Moss and Ginn gone.
Round 3 Jordan Reed TE Florida 6' 3" 243 lbs - New H-back/TE to replace Delanie Walker
Round 3 (Comp pick) Corey Lemonier OLB Auburn 6'3" 242 lbs - depth at OLB
Round 4 Darius Slay CB Miss St 6'1" 190 lbs - it's either him or DJ Swearinger FS from South Carolina. With Goldson signed, CB is a bigger priority
Round 5 (from Colts) Rick Wagner OT Wisconsin 6'8" 318 lbs - replaced Gabe Carimi as the Wisconsin starter when he graduated; experience at RT and LT
Round 5 Aaron Mellette WR Elon 6'3" 218 lbs - small school stud who led FCS in catches and yds per game
Round 6 Brad Sorensen QB Southern Utah 6'4" 235 lbs - 3rd QB prospect
Round 6 Dennis Johnson RB Arkansas 5'8' 212 lbs - RB depth and also can return kicks
Round 7 Caleb Sturgis K Florida 5'10" 185 lbs - replacement for Akers
Round 7 Bruce Taylor ILB VA Tech 6'2" 244 lbs - depth behind our studs (from Bengals)
Round 7 Marc Anthony CB/S Cal 6'0" 200 lbs - more secondary depth
