1. Stephon Tuitt DE - could eventually occupy blockers and free up Aldon Smith like Justin Smith used to. I'm higher on Tuitt than most people and think he would find his way onto the field a lot as a rookie. Versatile and can move inside on passing downs. He is my draft crush this season.
2.42 Bradley Roby CB (trade 61 and 94 to the Bills who have a lot of needs) - I think he falls a little in a pretty deep CB class behind Gilbert, Dennard, Fuller, and Verrett. If Verrett is here instead, he would be the pick. Both guys are great athletes who could play the slot (Roby is 5'11 but his arms are only 31 1/2" and he might be a better fit in the slot in a press scheme).
2.56 Donte Moncrief WR - can become a credible deep threat for us and has some size too. Can be groomed to replace Boldin or Crabtree in the future. I would rather get Mike Evans in round one because I see him as a dominant red zone threat and a better deep threat than Moncrief because of his size and jump ball ability even though Moncrief is faster. Getting Tuitt, Moncrief, and another player may represent better value than trading up though.
3. Stanley Jean-Baptiste/Keith McGill CB - a big developmental press corner - I think Baptiste may be gone here, but McGill will probably still be there. Both are tall, long, and athletic, but may not be able to contribute immediately.
3. traded to move up in the second for Roby.
3. Dri Archer RB (trade LaMichael James and our 4th round pick to move up to the late 3rd to get Archer) - pure speed and explosiveness - I'm not sure he has a definite position, but he would be great on special teams and we could find a way to get a guy with 4.26 speed, great quickness, and decent hands on the field down the road. I'm a little concerned we didn't fit James in our offense, but Archer is a different athlete.
4. traded with LaMichael James to draft Dri Archer in the 3rd round.
4. Jonathan Dowling S - copied this off Phoenix's mock but he has great size and we would have time to develop him behind Bethea. We could use depth at S and Bethea is already 29. Dowling is thin, but has good height, length, and speed and showed some playmaking ability against weak opponents with 8 FF's and 9 int's in the last 2 seasons.
5. Seantrel Henderson OT - late 5th is around when teams will be willing to take a chance on him - very inconsistent player with some durability and maturity concerns but he is a very good athlete for someone his size and has long arms (34 5/8"). I feel like our team has the leaders to get this guy back on track, but keep him away from Aldon Smith. There are no backup tackles listed on the 49ers depth chart so getting a project like Henderson may be a good idea if they trust him off the field.
7. Trey Millard FB/TE - we could use depth at FB and Millard can catch the ball too. He's coming off an ACL injury which could cause him to fall here.
7. Spencer Long OG - IR player who will provide depth at guard down the road.
7. trade for 2015 7th round pick (otherwise may get stolen off practice squad and I couldn't think of a good IR player here since Colvin will be long gone.
The main needs that aren't being hit are C and slot WR, but Patton, Moncrief, Boldin, and Archer may be able to split time in the slot and we may be using more 2 TE sets anyways if McDonald develops. I also don't really like the C's in this draft class - Marcus Martin was considered the top C for his athleticism but then he had a terrible pro day.
The odds of the trades working out exactly as I predicted are slim to none, but I would be thrilled with this haul.
