This draft lacks the sexy big name stars at the top, but there's a lot of really good starting caliber players throughout the top 100 (and at key positions of need). Niners could come out of this with quite a haul by the time day 2 ends.
Exactly. Where it is lacking in star power, it is loaded at the bottom of the first through the third, which is exactly where we have 5 of our picks. If this plays out right, we could walk away with 5-7 starter quality players as opposed to guys that would be Demarcus Dobbs and Tramaine Brock type depth.
We can get a NT for the future, a CB, one or two safeties, one or two receivers, and 3-4 defensive end. I think Baalke has the chance pull off his own 1986 type of draft.
