Great mock. You address key positions early and bolster the depth at positions that have voids.
Just a couple of thoughts:
- Even with a sub-par combine, I don't see Chase Thomas slipping in the late 5th round (Colts pick). I see him as a 4th rounder, and our comp pick would be a perfect selection for him.
- Joe Kruger in the 7th? He had a good combine (4.8~ 40 time) and put up respectable numbers in 2012. In addition, I think him being connected with Paul Kruger will bolster his stock to the 4th-5th round range - especially since more teams are converting to the 3-4 D.
And a question for you: There were plenty of rumors that Baalke wanted Bruce Irvin last year, and were shocked that he was taken so early in the draft. Do you think the 49ers go pass rush DE/OLB earlier - regardless of Fleming being drafted last year?
