I read an article not that long ago from I believe Matt Miller of Bleacher Report and he said that we should expect a surprise pick from the 49ers this year. In 2011, the 49ers were mocked to take Robert Quinn and they ended up picking up Aldon Smith (yess) and the following year, people were mocking the 49ers to take Stephen Hill but instead we picked up AJ Jenkins. So with Darius Slay added as a late attendee of the NFL draft, I'll go ahead and say he'll be our surprise pick this year. Experts say that his upside is better than Jonathan Banks, who was the more known DB out of Miss St. but during the NFL combine, Slay outperformed him.

Ima go with WR Deandre Hopkins and I'll be upset. But then he'll end up being good and I'll be happy.
DeAndre Hopkins and Sammy Watkins made a terrific WR duo last year at Clemson. I wouldn't be mad at that pick at all since Boldin is probably a one year rental and we don't know how good Jenkins will be yet.
