First attempt at a mock

How's it going. Been awhile since I've been on the forums. Let me know what you think..

2014 Draft
1 -- Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
2 -- Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU
2 -- Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
3 -- Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin
3 -- E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri
4 -- Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford
5 -- T.J. Jones, WR, Notre Dame
6 -- Will Clarke, 3-4 DE, West Virginia
7 -- BPA - Guard
7 -- BPA - Any Position/ Returner
First time mocker, long time watcher.

Nice players, but I'd prefer not to burn any of those day two picks on guys that would be more likely to end up inactive on game day because of the positions they play. (Swanson and Borland)

Could you explain the picks a little bit?
Prefer Moncrief over Landry. Maybe get both back to back. Not thrilled with Swanson in round 2.

Prefer Loston or Bailey over Reynolds in round 4

Solid mock.
Love Fuller. He's the prototype CB Baalke's looking for...with almost 33" arms.

Understand the Landry pick, but with Boldin only on a 2-yr contract and Crabtree entering the final yr of his rookie contract, I'd rather have Adams, Matthews or Moncrief, all three of whom have good speed and size. Adams and Matthews especially run good routes and would arguably be able to take over for either/or Boldin/Crabs.

Swanson's a wasted pick...Kilgore's the man at C and there are at least 3 other players to back him up.

Gaines is a good CB, but another short-armed guy. Give me McGill, Desir instead.

Also no QB...even w/Gabbert, we only have 3 under contract. Could use a 4th for several reasons.
1 -- Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
Dennard and Gilbert will be gone. Best available and fits perfectly

2 -- Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU
Good size, good hands, solid speed. After this year no guarantee Boldin will return

2 -- Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
Im high on him. He fills a need. He had an up and down season and with NFL training he could become a well balanced C.

3 -- Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin
Fans are so quick to assume Bowman will come back fine. Bowmans identity is speed. With the injury its not set it in stone he'll return to form. Borland is a thumper and tackles well. Good insurance policy.

3 -- E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri
I couldn't watch a football show or ESPN without seeing this guy make plays. Corner is a huge need and this guy is a play maker

4 -- Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford
An above average coverage safety. Good value imo. The more secondary we have the better. The INTs arent there but his instincts are above average

5 -- T.J. Jones, WR, Notre Dame
Huge ND fan. He was very under rated in the college football landscape. He really has a special ability to get open. And he has the ability to get open right off his first move that would be beneficial to Kaep

6 -- Will Clarke, 3-4 DE, West Virginia
Good value. Adds depth and i think is a perfect spell on either side

7 -- BPA - Guard
7 -- BPA - Any Position/ Returner
Clarke is exceptional value at the end of the sixth given he is expected to go in the 4th round. Landry, Borland, and Reynolds are all taken too early in your draft imo. I'm also a big ND fan and think TJ Jones will be a pretty good slot receiver but I don't think he would make it onto the field. All the ND receivers seemed to get wide open this year but I think defenses just allowed this knowing they could close on the ball by the time Rees floated it in to the receiver. Rees had to have the worst physical attributes of any starting D1 college QB but kudos to him for making if onto the field.

no guarentee boldin will return? hes signed for 2 years. but i do agree we need another Wr. Landry could be a Boldin clone once he gets coached up a bit. I dont hate the pick.

Fuller is a stud, I could see that happening IF we stay put. I think we move up for Gilbert or Dennard tho..

Swanson could come in and compete but idk.. I think Baalke likes Kilgore.


Gaines is good. The rest is meh
I feel like its a pipe dream to think Moncrief will be there at our first 2nd rounder. Landry and Jones are solid editions. Fans have a hard on for Kilgore. .why? Cause he pancaked a 4thstring DL as a 3rd TE in heavy run sets? I leave it up to more experienced mock drafters to go further in depth.
Borland goes in the 2nd.

He's 5'11, slow, and his arms are 29 1/4". I beg to differ.

this, zero reason to draft a center or ILB early. Bowman will miss some time yes but we already have 3 guys who can fill in, Whilholte, Moody & Skuta, we'll be fine.

2 - 3 inches taller and he is a 1st rounder. He's a real talent. Remember Zach Thomas? A smaller ILB can play if they are good. He's so instinctive and he is a thumper he will do well. He's underestimated IMO on the WZ and by fans in general.
His lack of speed and length are a huge disadvantage in coverage and I can't see his length not hurting him in fighting off blocks. I don't question his toughness or motor, but I think his midget arms drop him to the late 3rd or 4th. If he was 2 inches taller and his arms were still disproportionately short, he would still be a late second rounder. If we're going to say he's 6'1 or 6'2 with reasonably long arms, why not go all the way and say he runs a 4.4 as well. He'd he a completely different player either way.
Someone watches college ball. The Gaines pick in the third is money. I love his ability/tenacity combination. I'd bet the mortgage that Landry isn't very high on the niners board, considering we draft to beat the NFC west (hawks). Cooks and Crief would be a nice surprise 1,2, with buchannon, Gaines, Smallwood,
Quarles or Clarke, stork, lyerla, aikens. If Baalke could pull that off, he'd have hit on the greatest draft of all time. I could see them going cooks/fuller, or roby/Crief 1,2 as well.
