Post-Senior Bowl 7-round 49ers mock draft

Two compensatory picks – one in the 4th and one in the 7th.

Losses: WR Randy Moss (retired), CB Tramaine Brock, G Leonard Davis, WR Ted Ginn, LB Larry Grant, DL Isaac Sopoaga, S Darcel McBath, QB Alex Smith, K David Akers, OLB Parys Haralson, K David Akers, WR Mario Manningham

Re-Signed: FS Dashon Goldson, DL Ricky-Jean Francois, TE Delanie Walker, LB Tavares Gooden

Signed: backup defensive back, #4 or #5 WR (like a Chaz Schilens, Roscoe Parrish, or someone like that), backup LB

Round 1, pick 32 – Jesse Williams, DL, Alabama 6-3, 320 lbs – I'm starting to like this pick a lot. While most people see him as a nose tackle, I see him as a defensive end with the ability to play the nose. The guy plays a very good 5-technique and played that for all of 2011. He gives us versatility across the DL.

Round 2, pick 32 – Robert Woods, WR, USC, 6-1, 190 lbs – Yes, he will fall this far – just like Rueben Randle did last year. He's a bit underweight and isn't amazing against press coverage, and drops passes – that's why he falls this far. But Trent Baalke LOVES production, and nobody produced more than Robert Woods. Beautiful deep threat for Kaepernick, and he can return punts and kicks – so Ginn can walk.

Round 3, pick 12 (from CAR) - Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennesse Tech, 6-3, 215 – yes, another BPA pick and another WR. Big, physical WR that can block, break tackles, and move the chains. With this locker room, I'm not concerned about character issues.

Round 3, pick 32 - D.J. Swearinger, S, South Carolina, 6-0 205 - Versatile Safety who can play both free and strong; solid in the run game. Replacement for Whitner at some point

Round 4, pick 32 - Kwame Geathers, DT, Georgia - 6-5 350 - a big man to develop. not sure if he's ready to play immeditely.

Round 4, compensatory - Dallas Thomas, OT, Tennessee, 6-5 305 - Swing Tackle.

Round 5, pick 24 (from IND) - Braxston Cave, C/G, Notre Dame 6-3 305 - Potential future C if Kilgore doesn't pan out

Round 5, pick 32 - Matt Scott, QB, Arizona, 6-2 205 - Dual-threat quarterback who can run the pistol and read-option if Kaepernick goes down.

Round 6, pick 12 (from MIA) - A.J. Klein, LB, Iowa State, 6-1, 245 - backup for Willis & Bowman. Can play OLB.

Round 6, pick 32 – Brett Maher, K, Nebraska – A kicker!

Round 7, pick 21 (from CIN) - Cornelius Washington, DE/OLB, Georgia - 6-4 265 - Depth

Round 7, pick 32 - A.J. Francis, DL, Maryland - 6-5 325 - developmental prospect that we may be able to stash on the PS

Round 7, compensatory - Terrence Brown, CB, Stanford - 6-0 190 - not sure why he declared early. He's expected to be a 6th or 7th round pick

Love the re-signings and the first pick, but not sure about the rest of it.

- I doubt Moss retires, and Manningham is under contract next year (which means we won't have to draft two WRs in the first 3 picks)
- Seriously doubt Cornelius Washington lasts until the 7th
- Don't think it's wise to use a 3rd rounder on a safety after re-signing Goldson (especially since you have Spillman and Robinson as back-ups already)
- A late round development safety (maybe another converted CB like Goldson) would be fine
Not crazy about this draft Nick. I just dont see the wisdom of drafting a WR in both rd 2 and rd 3 when the Niners have other needs. You basically neglect CB and OLB totally (I dont count 7th rd picks as really addressing the position) .
-49ers need to add a CB much earlier, its not a luxury to just ignore the position, Brock is gone and Tarell Brown will be a free agent looking for a big raise shortly, realistically he needs to be replaced and the time to do that is this offseason.

-Cave is awful, he's been dominated by virtually every top level opponent he's faced.

-Its highly doubtful that Dallas Thomas lasts beyond the early 3rd round.

-Swearinger is a great pick and would fit in well with this defense.

I agree with statement above. I would love to get Jesse Williams but I don't see him being available at our pick.

CB I agree definitely, in regards to OLB, not nearly as much since I think the 49ers will bring Haralson back, plus there's also Cam Johnson and Darius Fleming...all for a backup spot on the defense. I feel like CB and the DL are much more urgent.
Why get rid if Manningham? Also, don't like picking two WRs in 2nd and 3rd. Rather get FS/SS, CB or DE.

I don't think the 49ers can depend on Manningham eitherway. He likely won't be back for the start of the season and his contract is up at the end of it. At best he's a #3 WR so its not like they can't or shouldn't look to upgrade at the position.
not crazy about drafting 2 wide receivers, one after the other. and yea washington IMO is going to be a 3-5 rd pick. washington is actually the OLB i would love to get. he seems very underrated to me. at the senior bowl he was consistently pushing back the RT and was stout against the run. we should pull the trigger on this guy with our 4th

- I think moss retires if he gets a super bowl ring.
- Washington is 200 - 250 on most boards and mocks I've seen
- he's a replacement for Whitner

The weakest positional groups, without question, are WRs and defensive line
- you wouldn't take woods in the late 2nd? Rogers isn't BPA?
- CB is extremely deep.

Thomas is near that point on most boards and most mocks
cave is going in the 5th. Don't get your panties in a bunch
- weay have the best nickel/dime secondary in the NFL. Perrish cox is 25 and still getting better
