Let me know what you guys think!
1+3b. Jason Verrett CB (TCU 5'9" 189lbs, 30 5/8" arms, 4.38 40)- I'll be criticized for this pick because "there is too deep a draft to throw around picks" and so on, however it would be a dream come true to have so many athletically gifted playmakers in the secondary. He's the perfect nickel corner and would prevent those constant 3rd down completions on us by opposing teams.
2a+2b Bradley Roby CB (Ohio State 5'11" 194lbs, 31.5"arms, 4.39 40)- Highly instinctive, fast, and tough against the run. He can play boundary off the bat. The bigger slower guys won't have a chance against him since he's rarely burned in off man coverage (10% burn rate).
3a. Cody Latimer WR (Indiana 6'2" 215lbs, 32 5/8" arms, 4.43 40)- We keep getting overly excited about drafting a receiver. However, we currently have Crabtree, Boldin, and Patton. Next year we will still have Patton and Boldin. This means a physical high upside specimen like Latimer makes a ton of sense. He can come in and learn without threatening Crabtree too much. He is strong, fast, and physical. Just the way we like it.
3c. Travis Swanson C (Arkansas 6'5" 312lbs, 33 1/8" arms)- He has the size, athletic ability, and agility he just needs the strength. Given time in an NFL weight room he could become a monster and an instant plug in starter at center. Sitting as a backup will do him good as he learns the system and strengthens up.
4. Antone Exum S (Virginia Tech 5'11" 213lbs, 31 5/8" arms, 4.59 40)- He was a prominent playmaker on a very good defense before tearing his ACL. If given a chance on our team I'm sure the physically imposing DB could make an impact and give Dahl serious competition at the backup spot.
5. Brett Smith QB (Wyoming 6'2" 206lbs)- A dual threat QB with a lot of upside and similarities to Kap. He is considered a poor mans Manziel in this draft and would prosper in an offense like ours.
7a. Spencer Long OG (Nebraska 6'5" 320lbs, 33 1/8" arms)- A highly talented lineman that could be groomed to take over for Iupati if he leaves in free agency next year.
7b. Quincy Enunwa WR (Nebraska 6'2" 225lbs, 32 5/8" arms, 4.45 40)- Strong, physical, and fast. A special teamer with upside. Definitely a hidden gem who could benefit from being mentored by Boldin.
7c. Andrew Jackson ILB (Western Kentucky 6'1" 254lbs)- A fiery trash talking competitor with size. He can compete with Wilhoite, Moody, and Fleming in camp. He has a good chance of making the the team by taking Bowmans spot while on IR.
