Trade our 5th and two 6ths (about 65.8 points) to Chicago for their 4th (about 66 points)
1. SF 31 Justin Hunter WR Tennessee 6-4 200 4.41*
Hunter has good size and decent speed, but most importantly he is a clutch receiver. He led the FBS in "clutch reception percentage" in 2012. 76.7% of his 73 catches going for a first down or touchdown. In 28 games, he had 106 receptions for 1,812 yards and 18 scores.
BPA at this point.
2. SF 34 Phillip Thomas FS Fresno St 6-1 215 4.56*
Thomas has the ball skills that we need a free safety. Last year, he led the nation in picks with 8. In 41 games, he had 13 picks (with 4 returned for scores) and 15 passes broken up. He also had 178 tackles and 6 forced fumbles.
2. SF 61 Brandon Williams DT Missouri Southern St 6-2 340 5.25*
Williams is strong, relentless, hardworking and capable of collapsing the pocket, disrupting the passer, and getting sacks. He was D2 defensive player of the year in 2013, and was a three-year All American. In 42 games, he had 27 sacks, 50.5 TFL, 191 tackles, 18 quarterback hurries, 14 passes broken up and 6 forced fumbles.
3. CAR 74 Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina 6-3 312
In 25 games, he had 8.5 sacks, 20.5 TFL, 11 quarterback hurries, 3 passes defended, and 1 forced fumble. Williams clearly has physical attributes and football skills to be a higher pick. He drops into the third, because his motor runs on five cylinders. He is the perfect candidate to serve as an apprentice under the tutelage of Jim Tomsula, Justin Smith, and Richard Seymour. He will provide immediate depth on the defensive line and eventually will be a starter.
3. SF 98 Jamie Collins OLB Southern Mississippi 6-3 250 4.59*
This kid is more than a workout warrior. In 52 games, Collins had 21 sacks, 45 TFL, 314 tackles, 10 quarterback hurries, 3 interceptions, and 15 passes broken up. He returned 2 interceptions and on fumble for scores.
4. CHI --- Travis Kelce TE Cincinnati 6-5 260 4.68**
Kelce was suspended for 2010 season, but came back and played in 2011 and 2012. In 2012 he led the team in receptions, yards, and receiving TDs. In 35 games, he had 59 catches for 875 yards and 10 scores. His successful return to the team mitigates against the potential of risk and his production indicates that he has football skills.
4. SF -- Earl Wolff SS North Carolina St 6-0 208 4.37*
He has good size, speed, and ball skills. In 51 games, this strong safety had 6 picks and 14 passes broken up, 12.5 tackles for a loss, and 361 tackles. He can cover and tackle. We need this.
5. IND --- Nick Williams DE Samford 6-4 310 4.87*
His combine turned heads. He ran the fastest 40, had the fastest 10-yard split (1.63), the best vertical (33") and broad jump (9' 3") of any defensive tackle official at the combine. He also can play some football. In 40 games, he had 7 sacks, 11.5 TFL, 66 tackles, 5 passes broken up, and 2 forced fumbles, 3 quarterback hurries, and 1 blocked kick. (And yes, apparently I like players named Williams.)
7. CIN --- Dustin Hopkins K Florida St 6-2 190 6-7 NR
7. SF --- Manase Foketi OT West Texas A&M 6-5 320 NR
