This is actually my favorite out of all of them, fills pretty much every need I can think of.
Competent nickelback to handle the smaller receivers-Check
Big wide receiver to develop/redzone threat-Check
Potential replacement at guard in case Iupati walks-Check
Potential replacement for Whitner in case he walks-Check
Potential starting cornerback to replace Culliver if he leaves next offseason-Check
Additional depth at cornerback-Check.
Starting center in case Kilgore flops-Check
Deep threat on offense-Check
Competition for special teams/safety depth-Check
An H-back type player who can offset what both Dixon and Celek do on the team-Check.
Quality backup QB-Check
The only thing I couldn't fit in there was a real physical hammer of a running back but then again the roster is pretty clogged up.
Breeland is a guy I've seen a lot of, I was shocked when he came out but I promise he's going to be a huge steal for someone. Not a game-ready guy right away but like I said, if he waited a year, he'd probably be looked at as a 1st rounder next year. Raw but with a lot of upside, in the late 3rd he's very good value.
Trey Millard is an amazing player. The best H-back type performer you can get in this draft, 3rd round, even late 2nd potential. He excels as both a TE and a FB and has outstanding athleticism to boot. If the 49ers can pick up him and Long in the 7th, that would be mind-boggling.
