Mock Draft 2014
1st (30) Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech. 6'0" 190 (Unless they trade up—the best CB available)
An All-ACC performer the past three seasons, Fuller is rangy and light-footed with quick movements, long arms and can play man or zone coverage. Fuller is a string bean with limited room to get much stronger, but he plays bigger than he looks with the confidence and instincts to make plays wherever he lines up. (CBS Overview)
2nd (56) Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt 6'3" 212 (Just like this guy—good production, speed, size)
Size/speed combination along with his hand/eye coordination and body control makes him an attractive prospect, showing the ability to make plays at all levels of the field and do damage after the catch. (CBS Strengths)
2nd (61) Lamarcus Joyner, CB/S0, Florida St. 5'8" 184 (Excellent athlete, can play a role)
The versatile defensive back has bounced between safety and cornerback most of his career, but played mostly a cornerback role as a senior, seeing a lot of action as a nickel back covering the slot receiver. (CBS Overview)
3rd (77) Weston Richburg, C, Colorado St. 6'3" 298 (Early starter or solid backup?)
Often asked to pull on sweeps, screens and shows impressive quickness and change of direction for a man of his size. Intelligent. Makes all of the line calls and keeps his head on a swivel to help teammates when uncovered. Durable--started all 49 games of his career. (CBS Strengths)
3rd (94) Keith McGill, CB, Utah 6'3" 211 (Position of need and he has size niners lack)
Tall, well-proportioned athlete with intriguing fluidity and straight-line speed. Frequently asked to play press in Utah's scheme and displays the balance, agility and acceleration to perform well in this role at the next level. Moved to cornerback during the spring of 2013, McGill earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors from the coaches as a senior. (CBS)
3rd (100) Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia 6'1" 207 (Injury may bring him within reach, or Fales could be taken here)
Murray does many of the little things well. He has a quick set-up and delivery. He throws a tight spiral and is creative in the pocket, showing the ability to slide and re-set, as well as deliver passes from a variety of arm slots. He throws deep passes with velocity and good trajectory and can attack down the seam with excellent touch, as well. He's starred in a pro-style offense for four seasons against elite competition and showed the mettle under fire as a senior to handle the leadership duties expected of a franchise field general. (CBS)
4th (125) Dion Bailey, S, USC 6'0" 201 (Seems suited to play either S position—backup for both)
Lanky, athletic hybrid defender with extensive starting experience at outside linebacker and safety. Very good diagnosis skills. Reads the action quickly and is rarely out of position. Experience in the box shows as he is comfortable in traffic, showing very good awareness and vision to weave through the trash to get to the ball. (CBS)
5th (158) Jalen Saunders, WR/PR, Oklahoma 5'9" 165 (Small but very tempting).
Excellent punt returner and quick WR.
7th (218) Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma 5'11" 177 (Was a 2/3 rounder until injured)
Injury makes this guy available and 9ers aren't afraid to wait.
7th (219) Tevin Reese, WR, Baylor 5'10" 163 (Game breaker?).
Fast and sudden, adjusts to ball and good body control. Excellent athletic ability, leaping, quickness. Slight and might not be able to get off line in the NFL.
7th (220) Spencer Long, OG, Nebraska 6'5" 320 (All Academic).
Good frame, solid in pass protection, good anchor, shadow and mirror. Nastiness, intensity, competitive. Versatile--has played inside and out.
7th (222) Trade forward.
