It depends on if the 49ers feel comfortable with looney or Snyder as back up center. Otherwise we will need to draft a back up Center and that we could probably do in the 4th-6th rd range but if Martin or Richburg is there at the end of the 3rd round with our comp pick I could see drafting them too.
I agree with line of thinking but that is also if you think we are not gonna be moving and trading picks. I really dont think we draft 7 players in the first 4 rounds I think 3 or 4. If we stay put with all our picks than by all means. Im not against an OL but like I said he has to be a 100% cant miss. There is no question mark except for center which seems like Kilgore has locked up. Similar to Ian Williams extension last year and he started at nose. The team knows what there doing and I know they say there is competition at every position but has anybody came in and started that you didnt expect. Hopefully 2015 starting Guard is already on the team Marquardt? If not I hope they position this draft to get one in next years draft
We could get a CB in round 1 like Verrett. In round 2 a WR like Moncrief plus a DT or ILB. In round 3 another WR like Bryant or Landry or 1 of the speed receivers, a CB like Jean-Baptiste or Desir and a Center like Martin or a Guard. In round 4 we could target a safety and even use a later pick to move up if we need to. Players like Loston and Bailey could be available.
This is a deep draft and we might move up but then again we might stand pat or even move down because of the quality of the players in rounds 2 and 3. I would trade our 1st round pick for the 1st,15th and 30th picks in round 3 if I could. There are a lot of players that would help us.
Other than the draft that netted Ronnie Lott, Eric Wright and Carlton Williamson the best draft the 49ers ever had was the one where they traded back out of round 1 and picked up a ton of picks in rounds 2-4. We ended up with players like Tom Rathman, Tim Mckyer, Charles Hailey, John Taylor and more.
