Looks really good to me IF these prospects fell to where you have them.

Cut Manningham? -
Draft Tavon Austin in the 1st - You cannot be serious !! Granted, we need a #2, but we don't need to address that in the first round. We have bigger needs along the D-line, CB, and FS. Aside from the QB and RB, this draft is deep with talent at all positions. I say we get Da'Rick Rogers at the top of the 3rd to address our WR needs.
It's my belief that Johnathan Banks won't get out of the 1st.
I prefer Bacarri Rambo over Phillip Thomas.
Doubt very seriously Brandon Williams get out of the 2nd.
Marcus Lattimor? Not really understanding the logic of this pick at all, especially a RB this high in the draft considering who's on our roster. Cut a productive Manningham due to injuries, but draft Marcus Lattimor, who suffered a graphic knee injury, thus has far more injury concerns than Manningham? "groom him to be Gores replacement" I damn near fell out of my chair when I read that! You must don't like Kendall Hunter, because I was sure that he possessed a firm choke-hold on that title. As far as I'm concerned "Gores replacement" is already on the roster.
I don't see any reason why we draft a QB in this draft. We can pick up Josh Johnson in FA and we'd have a very good young QB corp (C. Kaep, Tolzien, Johnson). Also, mark my words, as time draw nearer to the draft these QB's are gonna rise on draft boards. I have EJ Manuel rated as the 3rd best QB in this draft behind Geno Smith (1) and Tyler Wilson, with Matt Barkley a close 4th. QB's are the most valuable commodity in the NFL. Geno Smith is going in the 1st. I don't see Wilson, Manuel, Barkley, or even Mike Glennon getting out of the mid 3rd.
I honestly think that Tyrann Maththieu will go late 2nd/early 3rd. He is just too talented for a CB starved team to pass on, especially given this pass-happy league. Besides, I don't think he's 49er material.
Hopkins, Harrison, and Washington are all perfect picks I have us drafting them in the 6th and 7th, respectfully.
My thoughts? Give it more thought. Just not realistic.
