Essentially by drafting Lattimore this year, you'd be drafting a RB for next year.. He'll be on IR all year.. Pretty much just drafting really good value for next year

I wouldn't draft a DL who couldn't play anywhere on the line...that's what makes Justin Smith so valuable...he can play wherever Fangio plugs him in. To that end, I'd go bigger...aw, what the heck, I've avoided doing a mock, but here's something of a strawman of first 3 rds:
1- Sylvester Williams. 6-3, 315, plays DE, DT, great quickness
2a - Matt Elam, S. Has the overall skill to play FS (I do like Phillip Thomas a lot, though)
2b - Jamar Taylor, CB. Excellent skills and very fast (4.39)
3a - Chase Thomas, OLB. 5th yr Stanford player, good burst from outside. Very sure tackler...knows Fangio's base defense.
3b - Marcus Davis, WR. 6-4, 230+ beast who could replace Walker, in essence. Dude ran 4.45 X 40.
3c - Like the Lattimore pick. Harbaugh won't need him 'til 2014 season, most likely. Very tough RB.
