D-Money's 1st mock draft!!! (Pre combine)

Trade # 56 and #96 and 5th for #35
Trade 4th for 3rd in 2015
Trade 6th and two 7ths for 5th in 2015

#30 Allen Robinson WR PSU - A lot of people have compared him to Boldin but I see him more of a Crabtree Clone, one of my favorite receivers that doesn't seem to be getting the love he deserves. One of the "best pass catchers" in the draft. Everyone wants that deep threat speedster type, well I'm not in it for reaching for one again (AJ anyone), I think having a trio of similar strong and ferocious wideouts in Boldin, Crabs, and Robinson would be better to match up with Seattle.

#35 Jason Verrett CB TCU - I know he doesn't have the size everyone likes due to Seattles success but this guy can replace and improve on Rodgers slot position. Gets a great break on the ball and doesn't get burned. This is a very good pick.

#60 Daquan Jones DT PSU- I don't know how this guy is falling through the cracks, he has great size, movement, and hustle. Dominated against a very good Michigan o line. He may not be a starter this year but will easily beat out Jerod Eddie or Dobbs for a spot in the rotation and then help replace either Mac or Cowboy.

#74 Pierre Desir CB Lindenwood - here's the long armed lengthy corner everyone loves. He was very good at the senior bowl and we do need to draft 2 corners with three guys most likely leaving from last year. Would be our fourth corner or big guy matchup.

#99 Tyler Larsen C UTahSt- I've seen comparisons to Goodwin and well I don't expect him to start, he could be a valuable backup and provide the depth we need.

7th Khairi Fhortt ILB Cal
7th flyer on O Lineman

I know I've traded a lot of picks, but we don't have room unless it's for a quality player who can unseat a vet, we gain a couple picks for next year and get better at the two positions we have seemed to need the most help with the past three years. Wideout and corner, hopefully this will put us over the top . What do you think?
Would take safety with the #60 pick.There will still be good ones left. Also, would still like a speed receiver with great hands.
I wouldn't mind a safety there, I just thought jones was BPA as this safety class is a lot weaker than last years, maybe Ward or Dixon but I'd really like to lock down whitner for one more year.
The only way I want a speed receiver is if he doubled as a kick returner. Really there are only two that would be good fits. Marquise Lee who I believe will go top ten to the lions and Beckmann Jr who gets drafted by the browns with their second first. By the way Maquise Lee is my top receiver, just way too explosive and great after the catch
Agreed. I sort of think that if we luck out and get Lee, we can almost call it good at receiver. He seems to fill all of our receiver needs, if Boldin is resigned. He, (Lee) like Watkins, is an all-around talent. May wait until late and try to find a red-zone guy. Crabs, Boldin, Lee would be awesome, and who are you going to double?
Michigan o line was one of the worst units in all of college football last year. Robinson is cool but once again the offense needs some speed. I don't mind the trades

No problem with the players you picked, but I think we could have more holes on this roster. Whether Whitner leaves or we resign him, I think we should draft a safety that can be an eventual starter or at least push Craig Dahl. Also, everyone wants a speedster as receiver, but I haven't seen anyone trying to reach for a guy. Most have selected people in the guys right about where they should be. That also is no reason to totally skip out on drafting a receiver that can take the top off of a defense. I like Allen Robinson and would be ok with the pick, but we need to get a guy that could complement his skill set and the skill set of the receivers we already have. We need a guy that can open things up for everyone else underneath, including our running backs.

There is also A LOT of great 1st-3rd round talent that we can redshirt and by trading our 6ths and 7ths away, you're passing on all of that. Colvin, Easley, Long, and Murray are all out there and all would fill positions of need in 2015.

I also don't get the logic of that having more Michael Crabtree's would do the trick against Seattle. We need someone that would force their safeties to play deeper or risk being burned for a long TD/pass completion.

Based off of the roster as it is right now, and I am assuming that we resign Boldin, Osgood, Whitner, and Dawson, and with Carradine and Lattimore being included, we'd have about 45 guys on the roster,which leaves 8 openings. Yes there are guys in development on the practice squad, but I will not count them and you the draft is always a chance to upgrade what you already have.

Trade 1- a little too much, not too bad. Turn the 5th into a 6th/7th and you're more in line
Trade 2- good draft trade
Trade 3- way way too much! One 6th this year cost a future 5th

Nice mock. Assuming Whitner is resigned and we don't need a safety.

I would keep our 4th round pick and try to draft one of the speed receivers in the draft. You could even move back with the 1st pick and gain an extra 3rd rounder and still have a lot of talented WR's to choose from.

Our offense would be unstoppable in my opinion. Crabs, Boldin, and Lee would be too much for any defense.
Not to mention Vernon. Shoot...

Thanks. I like the suggestion. The only problem I'm having is figuring out if the speed receiver we draft will actually get pt. Does the 2nd Rookie WR replace Patton? Just felt some ammo for next year was more beneficial

If I'm reading this correctly, your saying to draft one of these "1st to 3rd" injured players in the sixth or seventh?I don't know. Easley will be long gone before the sixth, and I thought both Colvin and Murray were 5th round talents in this draft before their injuries. Neither seemed to be overly talented like Tank or Lattimore from last year.

I just don't see us drafting a speed receiver. Not that I don't want one, I just want to get the right one and they're not easy to find.

Horrible picks all together don't agree why trade all those pics and we need to fill holes on our team due to free agency issues on the horizon horrible mock draft you can do much better. If you are going to trade pics at least move up to grab the players that you want like last year

Rookie WR's generally work in over time but one could spell Boldin and Crabtree for some plays over the course of the game and provide depth should one be injured. Lack of depth hurt us bad last year. It also takes a year or two to develop WR's. Look at Crabtree, TO, John Taylor... they all took a while to become the player they would be. We need to get that process started and have some depth and some production added along the way.
We will have 7-8 roster spots to fill this off season: qb, 2 WR, c, g, MLB, 2 cb, and s. it would be better to fill these in the draft w our 12 picks. Trading away all of the picks would be foolish.
Last year the Niners had 13 picks and used 11, even with a stacked roster. Trading away all those picks isn't feasible. Like the Robinson, Verrett, and Larsen picks. The rest are just OK.

Hey, us agreeing on the three out of the top four ain't bad. Last year we drafted 11, two never played the whole season, the other went to KC if I'm not mistaken. So really we had 8 picks that fit onto our roster at the time, with both Lattimore and Tank coming back we don't need that many picks. Don't forget the importance we place on special teams and the roster spots they consume.

As for the other two peanut gallery newbies... Good luck on the zone, your gonna need it.
