This is my first post on the site but I love the draft process and would love feedback. I know it's way to early for a mock draft and baalke will be trading picks up and down and for future picks. This is more just a dream draft getting great prospect with great upside.
First I hope the niner resign Boldin he is a proven WR who Kap has great comfort with and fits our tough mind state.
I don't think we will bring Hitner back unfortunately unless he gives us a hometown discount.
In the draft I hope we trade up to get players who will make the team rather than drafting players in the later rounds hoping for gem.
1st trade: trade our 2nd round (64) and our 3rd round pick to move up in the second round.
2nd trade: trade down in 3rd round with the titans pick for a third this year and a 4th next year.
3rd trade: trade 2 7th round picks and a 6th round pick for a 4th round pick.
Round 1. Jason Verrett - CB TCU - he is my draft crush not as talked about as gilbert or Dennard but watching his game film available on YouTube is more impressive than most CB in recent history. Not a highlight reel stud, he is a little undersized. But show great instinct and incredible discipline. Would be a steal if he fell to is at number 32.
Round 2. After trade up. Allen Robinson - WR Penn state - great size attacks the ball at its highest point runs a pro style offense in college is great after the catch and is a willing blocker in the running game. Come draft time he could easily be gone by the time we pick in the first round. But with how loaded this draft is with WR I hope he slips through the cracks.
Round 2. KC pick. Travis Swanson - C Arkansas - going to need a replacement at center and I think if we were going to go to Kilgore we would have done it by now. Swanson is the best center in college and would be a day 1 starter and the end of the second round.
Round 3. Deone Buchanon - SS Washinton state - a good prospect to replace Hitner I don't see him starting day 1. We will probably bring in a vet ss to hold down the spot until he is ready. But he is a good tackler and is always around the ball on nearly every play and is a damn good ball hawk.
Round 3. Comp pick. Paul Richardson - WR Colorado - tremendous speed has to put on some muscle but could work the slot and be an asset to the team.
Round 4. After trade. Dominique Easley - 3-4 DE Florida - great prospect who may fall due to injury. Another draft and stash kinda player.
Round 4. Aaron Murray - QB Georgia - a solid back up could come in and be a game manager like Alex smith.
Round 5. Stanley Jean-Baptiste - CB Nebraska - great size speed combo but very raw due to being switched from WR to CB. With Eric wright riding the pine in the playoffs and cox getting all the snaps make me believe wright won't be back. This pick I'm not totally sold on but if we can coach this kid up we could have 4 solid corners in the very near future. If we don't get jean-b then Ricardo allen would fit this spot aswell
Round 7. Spencer Long - G Nebraska - more depth and with Iupati potantial departure might want to try for a gem from an injured player to be able to replace him if looney and Kilgore can't get it done.
Like I said it's my first mock and first post so go easy on me. Go niners 2 more wins!
