Players I hope 49ers are targeting

DBs:
Jonathan Banks (CB) - 2nd round
David Amerson (CB/FS) - 2nd round
DJ Swearinger (FS) - 3rd round
T. Mathieu (slot CB) - 3rd round
BW Webb (slot CB) - 3rd round

DL:
Datone Jones (3-4 DE) - 1st round
Margus Hunt (3-4 DE) - 2nd round
Jonathan Hankins (DT) - 1st round
Jesse Williams (DT) - 1st round
Brandon Williams (NT) - 2nd round

WR:
DeAndre Hopkins (WR) - 2nd round
DaRick Rogers (WR) - 2nd round
Quinton Patton (WR) - 2nd round

TE:
Zach Ertz (TE) - 2nd round
Travis Kelce (TE) - 3rd round

I doubt we address any other positions in the 1st 3 rounds. So I hope we use our tradable (compensatory picks aren't tradable) picks in the late rounds to get additional 2-3 round picks.

Nice list. I would change the following:

DB's
Remove the Honey Badger
Add Phillip Thomas FS

DL
Remove Johnathan Hankins

OLB
Jaime Collins OLB
Great list. Would really like Swearinger and Webb out of the db's.
I was pretty low on Amerson. He gets beaten in man coverage to easily but he has really good closing speed. I hope we pick him and convert him to FS.

Exactly, my thoughts. He'll be our next Merton Hanks.

Honey Badger is one of the top slot CBs in the draft. If Baalke and Harbaugh check him off of character issues, I'd be thrilled with picking him in the 3rd round. B.W Webb is another excellent slot CB with amazing quickness.

I've herd mixed opinions of Jonathan Hankins, but all the film I've seen of him shows that he is downright dominating. I have no clue as to whether that will translate to success in the NFL. But the guy looks great on the field.

Cool list! But I'm really not into the Badger or Lattimore picks... I won't be angry if Niners selected them, I just don't really care for them at this time.

I'd rather see DeAndre Hopkins, Phillip Thomas and TJ Barnes on the roster.

I feel completely opposite...I think Honey Badger will be a playmaker in the NFL. Great return skills and a good slot corner with ball skills. M. Lattimore is the BEST RB in this draft (prior to injuries). I know his injuries are considered gruesome but, even Frank Gore expressed an interest in him http://blog.sfgate.com/49ers/2013/02/20/shared-histories-gore-has-reached-out-to-south-carolina-rb-lattimore/. Plus, he is 3 mos. ahead of schedule per Dr. Andrewshttp://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2013/02/19/james-andrews-marcus-lattimore-rehab-ahead-of-schedule/1930953/. I do like Hopkins and P. Thomas and would love to see them on the list as well.

Lattimore's recovery time isn't a concern. Actually, it would be better if he took his time cause we could keep him on PUP without using a roster spot.

The question is, how will he perform after he recovers? Not everybody is like Frank Gore or Adrian Peterson. He may not be the same. That risk is the main reason why his stock is low. Plenty of teams could afford to stash him for a year, and would use a high pick on him if they knew he would be the same player.
Here are my guys i hope we Target some of these guys scattered throughout the draft. #1 on my list would be Star Lotulelei if he fell into the teens, i would seriously trade up for him, but thats not likely, so excludeing him.....

Jesse Williams
Robert alford
JJ Wilcox
Phillip Thomas
Knile Davis
Marcus Lattimore
Ace Sanders
Brian Schwenke
Brandon Kaufman
John Boyett
Here is my list of players I'd like to see

Datone Jones
Jesse Williams
Jonathan Cyprien
JJ Wilcox
Quinton Patton
Da'Rick Rogers
Shamarko Thomas
Duke Williams
Matt Scott
Colby Cameron
Dion Sims
Travis Kelce
Tyler Eifert
Johnthan Banks
Robert Alford
Terry Hawthorne
Mark Harrison
Chris Harper
Marcus Lattimore
Chris Jones
Jordan Mills
Omoregie Uzzi

It would be a cool story if we were able to land Lattimore after 3rd round picks (if he's still available), have him come back stronger (like Gore did). The Kid was awesome for the Gamecocks when he wasn't injured... maybe he gets a chance to prove all doubters wrong in the NFL. That would be a cool story.

Honey Badger was the $h!t in LSU--great college player. I'm just not in love with his size/speed. I don't think he'll be that great covering elite receivers on the next level

*huh--so many posts*
