I think people overrate our DL needs too. The need for a nose tackle just isn't as important with all the nickel defenses teams play nowadays. It's a passing league.
Secondary is definitely our biggest need, but if Eifert is there he should be our pick.
Agreed Eifert would be a great addition and you would think after what happened to the WR group the last 2 seasons some people would see the need to have a solid WR core.

This would be a nightmare, we need to conserve as many picks in the top 100 to defense. I am all for grabbing Eifert at 31 or 34 but I wouldnt trade 34 and 61 for another offensive weapon when he have glaring needs on the defense. If we were to trade up to #20, I would rather have it be because Star falls or Trufant is still on the board. I dont think WR is really a need on this team. I honestly think Ricardo Lockette is going to be a big factor on our team. At least Harbaugh thinks that, so I dont see us trading up for a WR.
No actually your plan for the draft would be a nightmare.
We probably only have the cap room and the roster space for 4-5 picks especially if Baalke adds depth to the D with FA vets.
And of the top 4 picks i have us positioning for...
1. Patterson - consensus #1 ranked wideout learns develops and can contribute now then takes over for Boldin and or Crabtree in 1-2 years
2. Eifert - consenus #1 ranked TE takes over for Walker big red zone beast
3. Cyprien - consensus top 2-4 safety in the draft
4. BPA according to need
5. Remaining picks are traded for 2014 picks
Add defensive depth where needed with vets.
Not too shabby in my books.
