1. Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
On all reputable sites I've looked at, no one can seem to agree on his value. Some have him in the mid first round, others have him nowhere in the first round at all. So, he may not be available here, but I'd love to get him. HUGE guy who's value wouldn't come from the stats he puts up, but from occupying a huge amount of space and multiple linemen at the NT position. Alternate picks: Jonathan Jenkins, Jonathan Hankins
2. Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
Another huge need, I think he'd be a perfect fit at the 3-4 DE spot. Didn't put up huge stats, but seems to be relentless and does everything well. May move up draft boards with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl.
3. Baccari Rambo, FS, Georgia
Have to admit I'd love to see "Rambo" on the back of a 49er jersey, but he's also just a good, physical safety who maybe drops a bit due to minor character concerns.
3. Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
Another guy who I'd love to get but may not be available here, as he seems to really be impressing at the Senior Bowl. If not available, I'd also love to go after Aaron Dobson, Ryan Swope, or Da'Rick Rogers.
3. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
If available, this pick just makes too much sense to me. This is the kind of pick that consistently great teams make. Sure we have more pressing needs, but none of them are extremely urgent, so we can afford to take a luxury pick on a great player who's fallen due to injury. Sit him for an entire year with NFL trainers helping him to recover and he'll be ready to go just as Frank Gore is winding down. It's definitely risky, but it's also a late 3rd round pick. A lot of those don't pan out anyway.
4. Joseph Fauria, TE, UCLA
Fauria seems to be falling on a lot of draft boards, but I'm pretty sure he'd be a great pick for us, and would be ecstatic to get him in the 4th round. He's HUGE (6'7") and would be a great redzone target. I watched all of his games at UCLA and he catches everything, making some really difficult catches in the redzone. He may not be the best blocker, but we need a big target like him.
5. Josh Boyd, DT, Mississippi State
Boyd seems to be a guy with a good amount of potential. I'd look at him for a 3-4 DE spot. Can't draft enough guys for depth along the DLine, hoping at least one of them works out. Would also consider someone like Devin Taylor at this spot.
5. Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
Really hard to predict where he's going to go in the draft because he has so much talent and so many character issues, but if he's there in the late 5th, I say take the chance. As many have stated, he'd be a perfect slot corner to cover the small guys we always have so much trouble with.
6. Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State
Been wanting to draft him for a while, and because he left the team midseason, may be available here. Low risk, high reward.
6. Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois
He seems to be moving up draft boards as well, so maybe he won't be available, but most sites still have him as a late round pick. Corner depth.
7. Blaize Foltz, OG, TCU
Huge, strong guy who provides O-Line depth.
7. Caleb Sturgis, K, Florida
I know some want to pick a kicker in the 5th round or so, but seeing as kickers rarely get drafted anyway, I think we can afford to wait till the 7th.
7. Quanterus Smith, OLB, Western Kentucky
Bad midseason injury will cause him to drop a lot, maybe not this far, but I'm hoping. Lots of potential as a pass rusher.
7. Ray Ray Armstrong, SS, Miami
A guy with a ton of potential who will drop because of character concerns. Multiple instances of being connected with university boosters so he was kicked off Miami. Really low risk pick because it's our last pick in the draft, but high reward.
The main issue I see with my mock is the absence of an OLB early, but I feel that we can hold off on that need, and take one early in the draft next year.
