Brad’s Bodacious 49er Draft Board v2.0

Apr 9, 2002 at 12:00 AM


1 (27) Anthony Weaver, DT/DE, Notre Dame
A great, intense player. Will add a lot of depth and versatility to the line.
Other Options:
Lito Sheppard, CB, Florida – A great cover guy who would move Webster to nickel.
Charles Grant, DE, Georgia – Best size/pass rush end after Peppers.
Levi Jones, T, Arizona – Big, talented, smart. Needs more heart. Could be gone before we pick, though.
Mike Pearson, T, Florida – Another athletic tackle for the 49ers to consider.
Dwight Freeney, DE, Syracuse - Should be a great third down pass rusher at the very least.
Edward Reed, S, Miami – Plays the same position as Bronson, but he’s just too good to ignore.
Kendall Simmons, G, Auburn – Looks like a great player…but a guard in round one?

2 (61) Mike Echols, CB, Wisconsin
A reach at this spot, but he’s a great cover corner to play nickel. Could trade down.
Other Options:
Bryan Thomas, DE, AL-Birmingham – High effort speed rusher.
Kenyou Craver, CB, Nebraska – Tough cover guy who can play immediately.
Eddie Freeman, DT, AL-Birmingham – Big tackle who could be a star. Needs some refining.
Joseph Jefferson, CB, Western Kentucky - Was the best corner at the Blue-Grey game.
Marquise Walker, WR, Michigan – Just as good as JJ Stokes but a HELL of a lot cheaper.
Fred Weary, G, Tennessee - Very athletic guard with adequete size who has tackle potential.
Coy Wire, S, Stanford – Could be a great strong safety. 49er kind of player.

3 (no pick currently)

4 (125) Kahlil Hill, WR, Iowa
A big, athletic player with more playmaking ability than Stokes. Great return guy.
Other Options:
Kevan Thomas, CB, UNLV – Good little cover guy with solid fourth round value. Needs to bulk up.
Joanquin Gonzalez, T, Miami (Fl) – Tough, hard nosed player. Limited athlete.
Brian Poli-Dixon, WR, UCLA - A very big, very athletic, player, but injury prone and inconsistent.
Tony Beckham, CB, Wisconsin-Stout – Could develop into a great player. Size and speed.
Ron Johnson, WR, Minnesota – Very big, physical receiver. Team leader and clutch player.

5 (157) Matt Hill, T, Boise State
Big, athletic tackle who could be a starter by 2003. Was very raw but improving rapidly.
5 (172) Charles Hill, DT, Maryland
Has the size and the desire to be a solid tackle. Quick learner.
Other Options:
Chris Cash, CB, USC – Could be a contributor. Good cover skills. Injury must check out.
Steve Smith, S, Oregon – Corner who could develop into a very good safety. Plays the ball well.
Aaron Kampman, DL, Iowa – Competitor with size and frame to be a good player. Probably a tackle.
Nate Dwyer, DT, Kansas – Has the frame and strength. Needs to work harder – has some McGrew in him.

6 (191) Kurt Vollers, T, Notre Dame
A big (6-7, 321) mauler who will likely be a guard in the NFL.
Other Options:
Kyle Kosier, G, Arizona State – Has pretty good feet and movement skills. Could be bigger.
Frank Romero, G, Oklahoma – Not very big, but a good athlete who plays hard and never misses games.
Ken Kocher, DT, UCLA – Big, smart, and responds to coaching.
Jonathan Goodwin, G/C, Michigan – Could add depth to the interior.
Travis Fisher, CB, Central Florida – Athletic corner who could develop into a solid contributor.

7 (223) Scott Mitchell, QB, Western Washington
Could be a very good 49er quarterback with some tinkering.
7 (249) Daryl Jones, WR, Miami (FL)
Quick, elusive player who would probably be a top return man.
7 (256) Antwan Kirk-Hughes, G/C, Texas
Has a center’s mentality. Could make it as a backup and eventually start.
Other Options:
Brandon Doman, QB, BYU – Another guy who looks like a WCO player.
Mike Mallon, FB, Brown –Former running back with speed, size, and hands. Inexperienced blocker.
Bradly Jennings, MLB, Florida State – Can play on run downs and be a special teams terror.
Howard Duncan, G, Oklahoma – Could be a player. Has the size.
Kevin Barry, G/T, Arizona – Could develop. Great size.

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk.
