First mock this year

We gotta have a youth movement at several positions and the future of our team is drafting well and not over-paying vets.

Resign-Bolden

Cut-Rogers, Baldwin

Restructure-Boone, Gore

Extend-Aldon and Kap

Needs
Big play WR
Starting caliber CB and SS
Center/Gaurd for depth


1-Kelvin Benjamin WR 6'5 220 Florida St-physical specimen who provides matchup nightmares

2a-Louchez Purifoy CB 6'0 200 Florida-veteran SEC CB that can compete to start from day 1

2b-Deone Buchanon SS 6'1 215 Washington State- 4 year starter, great tackler, can start and complement Reid, plug and play kid

3a-Kelcey Quarles DT-South Carolina 6'4 295-10 sack DT that will get in the rotation from day 1

3b-Martavis Bryant WR 6'5 200-still a bit raw and yes I want both Benjamen and Bryant, 2 6'5 freak athletes at WR is exactly what I want

4-Dominique Easley DT 6'3 295 Florida-hurt, redshirt, 2nd rounder before injury
5-Aaron Murrey QB 6'3 220 Georgia-hurt redshirt, kap backup
6-Dri Archer KR, PR, WR, RB 5'9 170 Kent State- 4.2 guy who can be a return specialist

Would be a good draft. I like Benjamin and Martavis Bryant, but were going to need a receiver that is shifty. You need a quick guy that gets in and out of his breaks in a hurry against Seattle.
I dig. Just pick Benjamin or Bryant. No need for both.
Good draft.

there's one megatron; many mike williams'
One megaton, one josh gordan, one aj green, one Julio ect.... I'm taking 2 stabs and don't care which one becomes a stud for us. We have plenty of picks! 2 on WR is fine by me
No O-line depth?

Ive been thinking about this. Do you think Ptulini that we have pretty good depth on the oline when you factor in Staley, Iupati, Kilgore, Looney, Boone, Davis, Snyder, Bykowski (OT), Marquardt (OT), and Netter (G)???

It seems the coaching staff has done well bringing up the rookies and developing them. Im not sure we need to draft a lineman with a high pick. IIRC, we traded up for Looney in the fourth a couple years ago.

It would be big if he could move up the depth chart

Nice Mock but I don't think you can get Easley in the 4th, Bryant in the 3rd or Aaron Murray in the 5th. Remember the 49ers picks are late in the round so a 5th is nearly a high 6th. Anything can happen but IMHO highly unlikely.

- Rather go Marquise Lee in the first and have him return kicks then there is no need for Dri Archer in the 6th.
- Surprising you went away from need and drafted Kelcey Quarles in addition to Easley as opposed to going Guard/Center

I think Linebacker is also a need. Patrick Willis is injury prone and we may need a solid back-up behind both. However, it also depends on whether or not Dan Skuta can also play Inside line backer. Long shot factor is Darius Fleming.
Love this mock draft and restructures (I said to restructure Frank in another post as well) but would like to pose some thoughts...

How about drafting a guard...I see your point about our current depth but in the state we are in, with Iupati nursing a leg injury, it is best we draft a solid guard just in case. Leg issues are rough for any football player but especially an offensive lineman. Besides I don't see you extending Iupati this offseason which means he becomes a free agent and if he comes back healthy will demand way too much money for us to cough up if we extend Kap, Aldon, and Crab. We draft before need not when we need it. There is enough talent this year in middle rounds to use one of those picks in the 2nd or 3rd on a guard. This draft may end up being a lot less "sexy" than most of us fans are hoping for. I wouldn't be surprised to see us draft a guard and center in the second and third round respectively. The talent is there and they are both positions of need. I would feel much more comfortable drafting a guy like Cyril or Yankey, should they be available in the second, and having them fill in for Iupati while he is out than Adam Snyder. This would also allow us to cut him saving around 1.3-1.5 in cap space...which we desperately need.

Also with a 5th year option available for Aldon, as he was drafted inside the top ten of the first round, I don't see us resigning him this offseason. The priorities will most likely go: Kap, Crab, Aldon, Iupati (not including Boldin and Dawson). I hope Kap's statement about taking less to allow the team to keep their players is true. He deserves to be paid he is a hell of a quarterback...but we should hesitate to give him crazy money. If anything next years quarterback class provides us insurance should we not be able to hash out a deal with him this offseason.

Also if we are going to take a defensive tackle in the third round why not just have it be Easley? He is the guy we want and we aren't afraid to draft talent early to sit a year...as shown with Tank. I think we take Easley in the third along with a center and a receiver and then in the fourth we take Colvin.

Lastly, we all know the odds of (W)Hitner coming back are slim which means we have a sophomore in the backfield, a very good one...but a sophomore none the less. It is because of this that if we draft a strong safety at all it should be Craig Loston, Eric Reid's old teammate. The reason I suggest this is because of the level of comfort these two already have with one another from playing together at LSU...and Loston isn't a slouch. Having a rookie back their immediately makes Reid the veteran safety which in a players second year is tough. Having a player that he is comfortable with would solve a lot of problems and make both their jobs a little easier.


Hope you enjoy what I have to say and let me know what you think.
Benjamin is a lot more than 220 lbs. Plus he is slow, lacks concentration, runs terrible routes and drops too many balls. He's overrated on the WZ IMO. 2nd round at the highest and I don't even personally like him there.

Nice picks. Wouldn't mind seeing it play out this way.

You listed Center as a big need and left it out of your draft.
We also might want to go after a 2nd CB because we are losing 2-3 this off season.
You left our compensatory pick out. We should be getting an extra 3rd or 4th rounder giving us 7 total picks in the 1st 4 rounds.
