Barrow's Mock

Originally posted by strickac:
This is practically identical to most of my Fanspeak mocks. I love every pick in the first 3 rounds. Only thing to make it better would be Brandon a Thomas in the 4th and Fales later.

- Latimer is a solid choice. He's big, durable and an outstanding blocking. The NFL won't be too big for him.
- Desir has outstanding ball skills. He's a great prospec to bring in to compete with Culliver.
- Smith and Lemonier would give us phenomenal depth.
- Hill would be a monster RB for us. He's my #1 big back, which is what I think we need.
- Ellington: speed, returner, and upside an a threat in the slot.
- Colvin, like Desir, has playmaking ability. Excellent player to stash away for a year.

Yeah, I think Barrows did a great job through the beginning of his mock. I agree that colvin could probably be had in the 4th, but many good GMs say to go get your guy if you want THAT guy, and the next guy is bi big dropoff to you. Could be the case there, IDK. Love Desir, Ellington, Smith picks. Cool with Latimer.

edit, I like Exum a lot, too, whether he's healthy or not. I'd like to swap out Albert Wilson (aka: unnecessary Ellington knock-of) for Brandon THomas or Spencer Long, if either are around.

This is just me, but I'm not too high on Desir as most of you are. Sure he's got the size, athleticism, speed and ball skills and I gotta admit I have never seen Desir play a full game and I know not much have. I just don't see Baalke spending a high draft pick on a player coming from a D2 school, all of Baalke's top picks where players coming from big schools or from the D1. Some of you knock Dennard for not playing against good QB's or receivers, well who has Desir shutdown noteworthy of?

Its his potential that is tantalizing, small school guy but an absurd ceiling. I look at it this way, if Baalke actually drafts him, then I am sold, that means Baalke believes in the guy and his ability to develop and handle
NFL level receivers.

Absolutely if Baalke drafts him then yes, my opinion will change no doubt, after all I want all 49ers to succeed I hate to see the 9ers draft a bust. Desir does remind me of Chris Culliver so we shall see.
Desir is a stud. Everything I have heard of him makes me like him. Great character. Family man. Athletic. Hard working. LONG ARMS.
Seriously guys, I dont like this mock. We need game changers in the early rounds. I'm not sold any of the guys here qualify as such. I hope I'm wrong, but I dont feel that way now.
I'd much rather, reduce the number of picks we have and try to find game changers including by possibly moving up the draft. I'd ideally like Cooks/OBJ with an earlier pick. Keep our 30th pick and get Tuitt and then in the 2nd round address the CB dillema.
Having too many average picks in the draft is useless for this team. Its like the Warrirors, they have a bunch of good players, but not enough great players to take them over the hump.

If we go up into the middle of the 1st without using #30, we won't have any picks in the 2nd.
