With the addition of the 3rd Comp. selection I decided to do a Post-Combine, Post-FA (Fort the most part), MOCK DRAFT.
Much has changed since I did my first mock. I really think the Niners will trade up. They have too much reason not too.
Right now we stand at:
1st round: No. 30 overall, own pick
2nd round: No. 56 overall, from Kansas City
2nd round: No. 61 overall, own pick
3rd round: No. 77 overall, from Tennessee
3rd round: No. 94 overall, own pick
3rd round: No. 100 overall, compensatory selection
4th round: TBA, own pick
5th round: TBA, own pick
7th round: TBA, from New Orleans
7th round: TBA, from Carolina
7th round: TBA, own pick
*I Predict the 49ers trade picks #30, #56, and #77 to the Lions for the #10th pick.*
1st Round - 10th Pick - JUSTIN GILBERT CB OK. ST.
The Niners have the ammo to move up and grab the best CB in the draft. Also there is no way that 11 rooks make the team, so it solves 2 problems. Justin Gilbert is a special talent. He has long arms (33" 1/8) and great speed (4.37). He is a true #1 LOCKDOWN CB with Return skills to boot. I see no negatives here.
WT: 202 lbs
ARMS: 33 1/8
HANDS: 8 1/2
2nd Round - 61st Pick - Jordan Mathews WR Vanderbilt
The Niners draft for another area of weakness, similar to what they did last year with going FS and TE in the 1st and 2nd rounds. Mathews is big, long arms, big hands. Crazy hard worker and smart. Asked for tape on all the DBs at the Senior bowl and played well. Blood related to Jerry Rice. Has the opportunity to sit behind Boldin and Crabs for the most part this year and learn how to be a pro.
WT: 212 lbs
ARMS: 33 1/4
HANDS: 10 1/4
3rd Round - 94th Pick - Deone Bucannon SS Wash. St.
Big strong SS who is not quite ready to be a starter in the NFL. But has the opportunity to sit behind Bethea for a few years and learn how to be a pro. Could develop into a great starter in this league. Will be a solid ST contributor in the mean time. His stock has dropped a little bit from the combine. I could see him landing here.
WT: 211 lbs
ARMS: 32 1/4
HANDS: 9 5/8
3rd Round - 100th Pick (Compensatory) - Trai Turner OG LSU
Had a really solid combine. Big strong guy who could give us a solid replacement for Iupati if he walks. Harbaalke seem to love SEC guys. And we need more interior OL. Long arms big hands.
HT: 6'2 5/8"
WT: 310 lbs
HANDS: 9 3/8
4th Round - Robert Herron WR Wyoming
Small, quick WR who could develop into a solid slot WR. Also brings return skills. Plays big.
HT: 5'9 1/8"
WT: 193 lbs
ARMS: 30 3/8
HANDS: 9 5/8
5th Round - Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma
Very talented, athletic corner. Tore ACL at the senior bowl. Was projected as a 2nd or 3rd round pick before the injury. We get him at a bargain and he can redshirt a year for us.
HT: 5'11 3/8"
HANDS: 9 1/4
7th Round - Ben Gardner DE Stanford
Physical DL that can hopefully compete for a spot down the road, needs to add a little more to his frame.
HT: 6'3 7/8
7th Round - Glenn Carson ILB Penn St.
MLB Depth. Not a bad thing right now. A little slow, but still could be a ST contributor.
7th Round - Alfred Blue RB/FB LSU
Short yardage back, could take the role of Boobie.
