Easter Mock - The Resurrection Draft we need after a tumulutous offseason

No to Adams. If we can't get a starter-caliber WR than get a specialist, like a great slot guy. The Niners have about 50 WRs like Adams.

I like M. Bryant. I hope the Niners select him. He may end up being their first WR pick.

The thing is that the niners won't be drafting for next year. The reason i picked a receiver like Adams is because he's very similar to Crabtree. Has great hands, uses his body to get separation, gets a lot of yac. It's very very likely Crabtree leaves after 2014, and when that happens, what would you prefer be the backup plan? To have Adams, already having a year in the system, under Crabtree's tutelage, or to try in find a rookie in the draft that has neither?

Similar thing with Boldin. Boldin has 1 - 2 years max. A WR that brings similar things to the table is Jarvis Landry from LSU. You draft him now. Let him learn and then incorporate him into the offense when Boldin is no longer there. Rookie WR's dont get a lot of snaps in this offense anyway. Ask Jenkins and Patton. It's all about 2 - 3 years down the line with a roster like the one we have. I do like Bryant a lot though. And he does bring something new.

Thanks. I'm with you on the 7th rounders. I expect them to parlay them into picks for next year, even if its for 5th or 6th rounders. You can then parlay those for fourths in the 2016 draft or to move up in 2015.
I have always wondered if a team could take a 7th round pick and trade up 1 round every year until it became a 1st rd pick. You can't always find a buyer for your pick. If we can I would trade our 7ths for 6th rounders next year. Otherwise I would probably draft pup list guys we can red shirt for a year. I also wouldn't be adverse to trading a 3rd rounder for a future 2nd rounder or our 4th rounder for a future 3rd or even one of our 2nd rounders for a future 1st rounder. When you pick at the back end every year moving up a round by waiting a year to select is one of the ways you can get extra draft value.

Yeah bro. You definitely could. It takes a lot patience and a deep roster. All picks have value, even 6ths and 7ths. They can always become something great when you have a GM that can maximize value. Trent is definitely that. I mean we don't have 11 picks this year bc of blind luck. It takes years to amount capital (picks) and know how to get the max value every year. This draft is 4 seasons of wheeling and dealing... and it's only going to keep going that way. I fully expect trent to get picks for next year

We've already got Patton. We'll have Boldin next year. And Crabtree's fate is not certain. What the Niners don't have, what they could use this year, is a productive player with speed.

I hope so. I know this was by design but you still need trading partners.

Yeah I hear you.Bryant can be that. You could also look at Brandin Cooks but they'd have to trade up. I dont see him getting passed the Chiefs or the Eagles. And I know Crabtree is not certain, but it's rare for the Niners to extend a player in his last season. Especially when it's gonna be a lengthy extension. Crabtree is going to garner top 10 WR money, especially if he has a nice season, and I don't expect Baalke to cough up that much dough. And Patton is a nice piece but no way he's Crabtree. So with the wide-receiver class so deep this year, I'd like to see them start thinking about life without Crabtree and Iupati. Their price tags are going to be too high.

Glad you digged it!!
Pretty cool draft except for a couple things.

1. I highly doubt we draft 3 WRs when only one can possibly make the roster.

2. I'm pretty sure Ed Reynolds is bi-racial.
nice mock
idk we'll be picking so many players but the 1st 9 I like

Yeah I know. I'm sure they'll want to add another WR to the practice squad too. And yeah now that I did a little more research on Reynolds, he is biracial

Oh yeah no way we take 11 players.. I think at most we take 7 or 8... I just don't like to go into hypotheticals and potential trades so I just do the mock with all the picks as is.

Not real high on Roby but, i like the other picks.
Assuming all the receivers start the season healthy and none are on the pup list or IR we can carry a possible 6 receivers on the roster. Crabtree,Boldin and Patton are locks. The rest are not. I could see Baldwin gone and I know Osgood is good on special teams but he is no lock either With older receivers and 2 being free agents next year (Crabtree and Lloyd) and Boldin in 2 years we may feel it's more important to have a young receiver in development than a special teamer. Even Lloyd is no lock. We would have been better off last year keeping Marcus Cooper than Assumgha at CB.

I could easily see us keeping 2 rookie WR's and an outside chance at 3. Barring injury opening up an extra spot we would have to cut 2 from the Baldwin, Osgood, Lloyd list but I wouldn't break out in tears if all 3 were gone. With the contract situations for Crabtree, Boldin and Lloyd we need to start developing younger receivers now. It usually takes them a year or two to hit their stride in the NFL.
Trade out Bryant for Lamin Barrow and add Brandon Coleman for that Stanford safety and I would love it.
Great job man, thanks for doing your research.

Well written also
