2014 49ers Mock Based on the Above "General Area" Projection:

Trades: 49ers move up in the 1st, trading their 1st, 2nd, and 4th for a 1st, 5th and a 6th.

1. Odell Beckham Jr.-WR-LSU, 5-11 198 4.43

49ers have made it no secret they were looking for a slot receiver. They brought in numerous FAs and couldn't land one, so they go get one here.

2. Marcus Smith-OLB-Louisville, 6-3 258 4.68

Productive, playmaking OLB who knows the 3-4 system. 49ers spoke to him at Senior Bowl, meaning there's a real chance we take him.

3. Bashaud Breeland-CB-Clemson, 5-11 197 4.62
Lots of untapped potential. Baalke displayed significant interest.

3. Dakota Dozier-OG/C-Furman, 6-4 314 5.29

Some teams worked out Dozier at center. Small school player with tons of upside. Seems like the prototypical Baalke selection.

3. Jack Mewhort-T/G-Ohio State, 6-6 309 5.37
Don't expect the 49ers to put their eggs in the Jonathan Martin basket or give him a pass if he falters. They'll likely get insurance.

5. Dezmen Southward-S-Wisconsin, 6-0 211 4.40

Terrific athletic combination of size and speed with ability to groom.

5. Taylor Hart-DE-Oregon, 6-6 281 4.86
Versatile player, something the 49ers like in DL prospects. Room to grow and could be a nice prospect to mold.

6. Brock Coyle-ILB-Montana, 6-1 235 4.67

Ferocious hitter, playmaker, and an extremely under-the-radar small-school talent. I think he's on our target list.

7. Garrett Gilbert-QB-SMU, 6-3 221 4.86
Good size and mobility, with a lot of developable traits. Probably one of a number of late round QBs on the 49ers radar.

7. Aaron Colvin-CB-Oklahoma, 5-11 177 4.51
Could be another stashed CB we have to compete for a spot in 2015.

7. Gator Hoskins-TE/FB-Marshall, 6-2 253 4.71
Perfect fit at the H-back spot. Tremendous contributor for Marshall and played big in big games. Niners spoke to him at Senior Bowl.
I wasn't sure about waiting that long to take a corner, but after giving it a second thought that would be a very nice draft. Well done.
I like taking a disruptive pass rusher early... you could never have enough of them! Love the Marcus Smith pick... either him or Demarcus Lawrence.

I like the first 3 picks, and it's very realistic.

I don't like the back to back OL picks - we have Looney and Snyder as carryovers, Martin is now here, and we have a promising OT in Marquardt. Dozier makes sense, Mewhort does not.

Sub Mewhort for Dri Archer, and I think you have a home run.

Otherwise, I like the remaining draft selections, especially the smaller school players.
If Smith is #77, why would they take him in the 2nd?

Who was the trade partner on the Beckham trade?
I'm curious to know why you have Moncrief as your # 9 receiver? if I remember correctly you had him has your #2 receiver before. Did your opinion change of him that much or did you just watch more tape on the guys and liked what you seen better from them?
I'm a fan of your first 4 picks, so that's a win right there. Thanks for posting this. I love to compare full BBs. Yours looks well put together. Hold onto your hat when Zach Mettenberger gets selected in rd 1.

Here is my BB and rankings (may have to scroll down the page) for what that's worth, and if you also like comparing. Still am tweaking some of the late rd prospects. The format here on the WZ is funky, so copy/paste ends up a mess.

Not really a fan of the mock to be honest. I don't like giving up so much to move up in the first round, when we easily can just give up a third round pick if we want to move up. Also, am not a fan of drafting two offensive linemen in the third round. That is offensive linemen overload in my opinion, especially when we have more pressing needs. A center prospect is good enough for the early rounds then maybe later take a late round prospect or redshirt type player like Brandon Thomas. Not a big fan of Breeland. There are better and more athletic corners.
Not feeling the Smith pick or the back to back o line picks.
OTC, thanks for putting this together. Nice work.

Quick question, why two offensive lineman and not two WR's? Like Dozier and Mewhort as prospects, but one of those picks could be another WR like Jarvis Landry or Jared Abbredaris. Just asking......

Regarding picks 2 & 3, I'd reverse them and say it will be a CB and then LB. Defensive backfield has always been a weakness and I think they will address it in this draft.
You did a lot of hard work and it looks realistic, but I don't know, looks like a kind of boring mock to me. I'm not sold on Beckham Jr. as a sure thing, good player, shows a lot of guts on the field, but small and not as fast as I'd prefer. I'd prefer Cooks. If you think we need o-line prospects that badly, why not grab Sua-Filo early who is most likely a sure thing? Then we can target Martavis Bryant, Ellington, Richardson in the 3rd round. Still think corner is the bigger need early, need someone to come in and immediately compete for a starting job with Culliver or whoever. Good job though , I guess it all depends on whether you think Odell is the man or not.
I don't believe the WR draft hype for the 49ers, and can't see the trading up multiple picks who is not a starter outside of KR/PR. If they trade up it is for a CB, it is the only position that can compete for a starting role. In your scenario, they would have to like Dennard enough to trade up a little, or could trade back and pick up a 2nd next year. In this scenario, I would trade back pick up a 2nd next year and get Verrett.

There is too much talent at WR in this draft to trade up for a WR that doubles as KR/PR. Plus if the draft Beckham and he is barely on the field his 1st year, everyone is going to call him AJ 2.0.

Look at last years FA, they picked up Dahl who everyone hated and weren't tied to any major safeties available. This year they lost Rogers, and Brown, and only brought Thurmond in for a visit before they signed Cook (who everyone hates). By looking at the trend, it is probably going to be a CB.
Only 1 WR taken...don't see Beckham as a replacement for Crabtree in Harbaugh's passing offense. Imperative Baalke drafts MC's successor this year. Agree, don't really see the sense in giving up those picks to get Beckham when they could take a CB in the 1st and grab Matthews or Adams in the 2nd (maybe even at #30). Baalke could get Ellington later...maybe instead of the OT. Harbaugh would have Crabtree's replacment and a quick slot receiver with excellent KR skills.

Only 1 (healthy) CB taken. Colvin is pretty smallish, especially for his reckless abandon syle of play...I'd think TB would want another bigger, healthy CB now

Really like Marcus Smith, Breeland, Southward
