Unlike most zoners I think and believe the Niners should use all their picks this year. Its a solid draft with great depth and the Niners can really set themselves up really nice for the future. Here is my final mock...its a dream scenario for me...and most players could be there at our picks.
1 - Datone Jones DE UCLA - Yes, its everyone's pick but he is crazy good and could fall to us. Just makes to much sense not to choose him here.
2a - Eric Reid S LSU - Goldson who? And for a fraction of the price. He is my favorite player at the postion...whether its him or another S one of these top two picks is addressing the safety need.
2b - Vance McDonald - Again Delanie who? Niners address their TE need and do it with a similar guy to Delanie. Another option could be Kelce..prefer McDonald
3a - Brian Schwenke C California - With this guy our line will be the best in the league for the next 6 years...plus gets to sit one year and learn from Goodwin...its a transition year and the Niners can use this draft to prepare for the future.
4a - Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina - Again like the Schwenke pick, its about looking to 2014 and beyond. If Marcus is there on the board with all our picks we can't pass him up. I think he goes here or possibly late 3rd (might trade up then?)
4b - Marquess Wilson WR Washington State - One of my favorite WR's in the draft. If you take out the off field issue (I blame Mike Leach) his talent is undeniable
5 - Earl Wolff S North Carolina State - Had a great East/West Shrine game and looked the part. With Whitner leaving after 2013 Niners can address the need. Reid, Wolff could patrol our backfield for years.
6a - Luke Marquardt OT Azusa Pacific - Small school project that is pure athleticism and played TE. Could be a steal and with our line he can develop into a starting OT in the future. If he doesn't beat out others can be placed on the practice squad.
6b - Caleb Stugis K Florida - Yes, I know we have Dawson but we can stash this kid on the practice squad. Again its about the future and the luxury the Niners have this year.
7a - Colin Klein QB Kansas State - Colt is the backup and I love him. But I would love this see Jim coach this kid up. Fits our offense perfectly and could beat out Tolzien for QB3. For a 7th rounder well worth the pick.
7b - Travis Long OLB Washington State - A steal pick in the 7th. Great pass rusher and add depth to our OLB. Could be a starter down the road. One of my fav picks
7c - Micah Hyde CB Iowa - Another solid perforner in the East/West game. Would be great depth for Niners. With Rodgers and our new Nandi signing "old" these new CBs' can add competition to our corps. Possible practice squad.
10 of the 13 picks I see making the roster, only exceptions would be Marquardt, Stugis and Hyde (practice squad). So in my opinion Niners can definitely use all their selections.
