Aye I am loving your mock draft but do you honestly feel we need a another quaterback?
Just a quick mock with no trades. Since everyone said my last draft was a little too perfect with players falling, here's a mock draft I put together by measuring players average position on 6 different big boards that had all been updated in last month to decide who would be available for most of my picks and where. Datone Jones came out at 30.83 which is perfect, and Cyprien was 44.3 while Reed was 53.3 for example. Hope you enjoy!
Round 1 Pick 31: Datone Jones DE UCLA - Adds pressure up the middle in passing situations and can rotate Smith and McDonald and keep them fresh.
Round 2 Pick 34: Eric Reid S LSU or Jonathan Cyprien S FIU - I like both of these guys and feel either of them would be worth this pick and one will be here at 34. Both are fast and rangy safeties that aren't afraid to hit, and both can play both safety positions in case we decide to part ways with Whittner.
Round 2 Pick 61: Vance McDonald TE Rice or Travis Kelce TE Cincinnati Since we use 2 TE sets as much as anyone we add a playmaker and redzone threat.
Round 3 Pick 74: David Amerson CB/S or Darius Slay CB Mississippi State (72.2) Either of these guys adds size, speed, and playmaking ability to our secondary and can match up with bigger receivers.
Round 3 Pick 93: Aaron Dobson WR Marshall Very good hands with a tall frame and enough speed to be a deep threat outside with the potential to be a star receiver.
Round 4 Pick 128: Matt Scott QB Arizona - Almost a mirror image of Kaepernick, Harbaugh can groom this guy into a solid back up
Round 4 Pick 131: David Quessenberry OL San Jose St. - Flexible offensive linemen who adds depth at tackle and guard
Round 5 Pick 157: Trevardo Williams OLB Conneticut - Great athlete with pass rushing ability
Round 5 Pick 175: Chris Gragg TE Arkansas - H-Back type tight end - probably best athlete at tight end in draft
Round 6 Pick 180: Josh Boyd NT Mississippi State - Underrated nose tackle for Tomsula to groom
Round 7 Pick 227: Rodney Smith WR Florida State - Huge wide out with decent speed and leaping ability
Round 7 Pick 246: Jeff Baca OL UCLA - Another flexible linemen with experience at tackle but primarily a guard
Round 7 Pick 252: Rashaan Melvin CB Northern Illinois - Fantastic athlete that's had his stock drop due to injuries
First of all, thank you for your feedback. It makes this so much more fun. To answer your question, I don't think we need another QB, but with as many picks as we have we should roll the dice on one, because you can never have too many starting calibur QBs on your team, and even if they don't play you can still build their trade value. I chose Matt Scott because of the similarities I see between him and Kaepernick. We have the best offense to fit his talent and skill set, and even if he doesn't ever start for us, he could have a good preseason and become the envy of some teams trying to emulate our offense, and could be traded for a pick based on potential, preseason, and a little playing time. I am also a fan of competition and depth at key positions. I wanted to draft a QB to provide some competition, and my other choice was Sean Renfree at pick 175 or 180.My original pick for that spot was going to be Le'Veon Bell, which would give us a power back to compliment our stable of quick 3d down backs. He also has good hands and could be used on play actions out of the back field from running formations in goal line situations. I'm kind of talking myself into picking him. The other two guys I had slotted as BPA at the slot were TE Dion Sims and OLB Brandon Jenkins but I handled those positions at other spots in the draft.

Personally, I think that Harbaugh will be drafting TEs from his college team.. I expect him to draft both Ertz and Toilolo if both are available..
people said that about Fleener as well, but that wasn't as big a need at the time. I think Toilolo has a better chance of being drafted by us than Ertz. There's also a small chance Toilolo goes undrafted, but I think someone will at the very least take a 6th or 7th round flier on him
