No way, no how do the niners use a top 50 pick on an OLB . Aldon Smith, Brooks, Skuta, Lemonoir, all are worth a roster spot and SS and WR are bigger needs.
1)we will draft according to need-based BPA, imho. In particular, I don't even think that any single team picks for need only at all.
2)It is possible that Skuta has to move inside. Then, we will need another pass-rusher. Two years ago, we were VERY thin at OLB and I don't want to see that again.
3)Whether you are sold or not, is irrelevant
Gabbert is here, Kaep is here. Unless a top-notch QB falls down to round 3, I am almost sure that we won't pick one until day 3. That would be WAY too much luxury.
Guys, BEFORE you make mocks and comments, PLEASE look at our contract situations in 2015 (and beyond). Especially at RayMac, Justin Smith, Anthony Davis and Ahmad Brooks. And don't forget about the guys, who will be FAs in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
