I like this option:
Rashawn Jackson, FB, Senior, Virginia, 6'1", 245 lbs.
96 carries, 461 yards, 4.8 yards per carry, two touchdowns, 25 receptions, 222 yards, 8.9 yards per reception
Far too often last season fullback Moran Norris was a lead anchor, dragging down the 49ers offense.
Whenever he was in the game opponents knew a run to Gore was in the offing, as Norris is too one-dimensional and plodding to be much of a factor in the pass game.
Drafting Jackson in the middle rounds would do for the 49ers what the acquisition of free agent Leonard Weaver did for the Eagles, because like Weaver, Jackson is a triple threat who can run, catch, and block.
Jackson would be a valuable outlet receiver for Smith, a young battering ram for Gore, and he could even be lined up as a half back to pick up tough yards on 3rd-and-short to save Gore the pounding.
