Nice mock...however, I'd pass on Schwenke...very good player, but we don't need to draft a C. Harbaugh has both Kilgore and Looney waiting for their shot. I think Looney's the guy...because he's a beast and is very smart. Instead, I'd take a different TE at that spot...Kelce. Three WR's? That's a bit much. Love the first 3 picks, although I'm not keen on drafting a NT...because we play so much hybrid and the NT comes off the field. It's possible Fangio would change that, if he had Jenkins, though. I do like getting the bigs right away. Like Alford, he's a good CB. Not excited about Kniles Davis...he's got size and speed, but has an issue w/fumbling. I'm not convinced Baalke will draft a RB, given he's got Gore, Hunter, LMJ and don't forget Hampton. I'd take a better OT in place of one of your WR's...it's a true need, whereas 3 WR's is too many in one draft. I get you didn't want to mess with trades...they're very unpredictable, for sure. That said, there's no way Baalke actually drafts 13 guys. At most, I'd say 7 is about right. So, expect some trading...not necessarily up, as most are suggesting. Instead, trade up or down to get 7 picks in the first 3 rds. That's where the best talent is.
Neither Kilgore or Looney are on the level of Schwenke as a C. Guy is extremely smart, great at calling the matchups and offensive reads at the LOS, and a great all around C to have. IMO the best C in the draft and a steal in the third round. He would be an instant upgrade over both guys, neither of which IMO are the answer at C. They are both Guards trying to be forced into a position they are less natural at. Schwenke was born to be a C.
I only took two WR's Mellette and Ace. Ace would be mostly a ST guy. But could fill into some spots on offense.
Knile Davis has huge potential, and very few negatives that are being super inflated. All one needs to do is watch his highlight real to see what the kids potential is. His ceiling is through the roof, and if Barber could fix his fumbleing, so can Davis.
I take a development OT from a small school in the 7th. Most have probably never heard of him, but he has huge potential and could be a real steal. We are set with bookend tackles for a long while. Worst case scenario, boone shifts outside, and either kilgore or looney fill inside.
I agree with the fact we will be moveing around a bit, and consolidating this season or defuring picks to next season.
