a Mock Draft better than a bag of Skittles

rd 1: stephon tuitt, d-line, notre dame. very good chance this cat becomes a three-down beast. inside-outside versatility. has more raw talent than just about every opponent he'll be matched up against on sundays. again, if this guy matures into a tough, driven, hard-nosed nfl player, he'll be an all pro many times over. if he's there when we pick, i can't see any other players in that group who will be as talented. mac and cowboy have a lot of miles on them; we need another stud to groom.

rd 2: jordan matthews, wr, vandy. he aint mike wallace or aj green, but he's more of the same of what we already got--strong, polished, tough, mentally together. he'll fit right in. catching, blocking, yak--we'll get good production from this guy. oh, and he's got got some of jerry rice's genes in him.

rd. 2: pierre desir, cb, lindenwood. tall, athletic cb with that rangy body like sherman. gives us that added dimension come match-up time. by all accounts he made plays against the big boys at the senior bowl while making the big adjustment from small, small school play.

rd. 3: craig loston, ss, lsu. striker. fits our defensive tone. needs work on coverage, but that's no biggie--he's a 3rd rd safety. but, he's talented enough to be a starter soon.

rd. 3: weston richburg, center, colorado st. an ugly hunk of cast iron--just like a center should be. he can anchor, and he can mirror some quickness--he can play center for us. lunch pail guy.

rd. 3: josh mauro, de, stanford. he's got just about everything tomsula wants except elite talent. good enough to maybe be a starter down the road. kind of guy who could be a rotational player for ten years. at best, a super steady, blue collar player who won't make many mistakes. he's got some length, and he's an high achiever; don't count him out on becoming a productive, nfl player.

rd.4: lamin barrow, ilb, lsu. this is bowman insurance. barrow plays kinda like bowman in a few ways. he's a chase-down attack dog like navorro. less talented than bowman, but has enough juice to play nfl ball. physical player who gets a lot out of his body, considering he's not chiseled god like willis or bowman. not great in coverage, but he has the mind to work on it.

rd. 5: jalen saunders, wr, okl. he has suddenness; we need suddenness! very tiny by nfl standards, but well put together--in a mccluster kind of way. he's a thin, strong guy--not a thin, weak guy like aj jenkins. game plan this guy the right way and guaranteed he will get open. he's a baller.

Member Milestone: This is post number 800 for xcfan.
rd. 6: deandre coleman, dt, cal. gives us some bull-strong interior presence to bring along for the future. i think he's more of a player than dial. it may take some luck to see him reach rd 6, though. i'm not sure. but, he's got good, nfl d-line size--and it's not sloppy size.

rd. 7: rajion neal, rb, tenn. compact, thick, physical runner. good backup material. he can do some dirty work between the tackles and gets positive yards. if he really gets into the playbook and develops good instincts as a 49er rb, he'll make plays; he has some plus physical qualities that are nfl worthy.

rd. 7: george atkinson, kr,rb,wr?, notre dame. this guy possesses outstanding, all-around athleticism. he has Legit speed. i want to develop him as a WR. he could also become one hell of a gunner on ST if he was so inclined. but, i just don't see him making it as a standard running back. more of a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy. but, if it was up to me, he'd go straight to WR.

rd. 7: colt lyerla, te, oregon. it wouldn't be rd 7 without a boom-or-bust pick. sometimes people mature and get their sh*t together. this could be a great pick if gets his mind right. maybe there's a 30% chance of that happening, here. i can live with that in rd 7.
We have all 3 starters back plus Tank Carradine and Ian Williams on the D-line who was our day 1 starter. That's 5 set positions not including Quinton Dial and Tony Jerrod-Eddie. You have us drafting 3 DL's. We might not even keep 8 DL's on the roster, probably 7. I could see drafting 1 and 2 would be a stretch but 3 makes no sense. Even if we cut both Dial and Jerrod-Eddie we still wouldn't have room for all 3.
One DL = fine. Three DL with our existing roster = ridiculous
Matthews won't be there at # 56. Desir is a small school guy with nice measurables, but in the 2nd round? Not a chance.

3rd round picks of Loston and Richburg are the only great picks.

I will take the bag of Skittles instead.

I like your first pick and a variety of other picks. If we are going BPA we still need a guard tackle and a ILB rather than another DT. Otherwise I think you were creative and addressed our issues on our team.
