LieutKaffee's evolving mock (updated 4/2)

Nmamdi official!
Anyone thinking we are taking a wr in the first three rounds is delusional.

Bolded transactions confirmed

Lose: Sopoaga, RJF, Goldson, Walker, Ginn, Moss, Grant, Gooden, L. Davis
FA: Glenn Dorsey, Nmamdi Asomugha, Phil Dawson, Marlon Moore, Dan Skuta, Craig Dahl
Trade acquisitions: Boldin, McCoy

**Draft trade: 2(34) + 3(93) to Minnesota for 1(25) - Based on current projections, it's hard to see Datone Jones making it past the late 20s.
**Draft trade: 4(128) + 5(157) + 7(237) to Kansas City for 4(99) - Use a couple of our extra picks to get one last pick in the late-3rd (top of 4th) sweet spot.

1(25) - Datone Jones, DE - Tenacious pass-rusher to provide DL depth and gradually fill in for Justin Smith. Our DL needs another blue chipper.
1(31) - John Cyprien, S - Best player available and all-around S prospect, 2013 FS starter and eventual Whitner replacement/upgrade.
2(61) - DJ Hayden, CB - Fast cover corner to add to our stable of talent; question marks surrounding Rogers, Brown, Culliver.
3(74) - David Amerson, CB/FS - A hybrid ball-hawk who could play a single-high zone or drop in and press larger WRs. Groomed as FS.
4(99) - Travis Kelce, TE - We need a second TE and Kelce is a well-rounded prospect with upside that draws Gronk comparisons.
4(131) - Reid Fragel, OT - Former TE like Staley, fills big need as versatile backup OT.
6(173) - Corey Fuller, WR - A WR with good size and speed who can provide depth and upside.
6(180) - Quanterus Smith, DE/OLB - A late-round natural pass rusher with injury concerns
7(246) - Steve Beauharnais, ILB - Looks like it's time to turn the page on Grant and Gooden and have Skuta and a rookie at backup ILB.
7(252) - Dustin Hopkins, K - Because Dawson is old. Could always wait a year, but it would be nice to have a young K waiting the wings.

I love everything except instead of Hayden in the 2nd I'd take a NT like Brandon Williams if he's there still.

Not a bad tweak. NT is arguably a bigger need than CB. This looks like a pretty strong class for CB in that round 2-3 area, though, and Nmamdi, Rogers, and Brown all could be moving on in the next 1-2 years. Or as the old adage goes, you can never have too many talented corners. That's why I have us targeting one early and think we'll go that route.

Barrows said Harbaugh was pretty up front telling him that they see Dorsey as the starting NT. When we first made the Dorsey signing, I personally just saw him as a low-cost, high-upside FA that could back up both the NT and DE positions. But I think signs are pointing more toward the 49ers using Dorsey there with Williams as the backup. We shall see. I could absolutely get excited with the prospect of Jesse Williams, Brandon Williams, or John Jenkins being selected at #61.
