The mockery continues 2/15/07

 


I've continued to establish a working relationship with Draft Tek, which will hopefully lead to some fun features later in the offseason after the draft.  In the meantime, they've updated their mock draft, as have several other sites.

Draft Tek
Round 1 #11 - Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
Round 2 #43 - Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee
Round 3 #75 - Ika Alama-Francis, DE, Hawaii
Round 4 #100 - Brandon Frye, OT, Virginia Tech
Round 4 #106 - Kenny Scott, CB, Georgia Tech
Round 4 #122 - John Wendling, FS, Wyoming

There was a glitch in the system for the later rounds that had us taking 2 more WRs, so that will be changing.  He has Okoye moving up to the 9th pick.  Clearly Okoye is becoming the "darling" of the draft and barring a setback at the Combine or in his private workout (if he has one) I see him moving up to between 5 and 10, unfortunately, although Jarrett is fine as a consolation prize.

Over at NFL Draft Countdown, there has been an interesting little change that sees us drafting Adam Carriker, the Nebraska defensive end.  He's quite the defensive end and certainly a solid pick.  The countdown considers him a better fit for the Nolan defensive scheme than Amobi Okoye.

Mel Kiper put together a mock draft last week that had an interesting little twist.  In his draft Alan Branch took a bit of a fall and fell right into the 49ers laps.  Personally, I don't see that happening, but stranger things have happened.  If it did happen it would be good fortune for the team and provide a potential anchor for the defensive line.

So, there you go, three drafts, three different 49ers.  I fully acknowledge that this could be somewhat foolhardy to be presenting mock drafts before we've even seen Combine results.  Nonetheless, these mock drafts give us some insight into the bodies that will be available around the 11th pick.  Barring epic meltdowns in the next two months, guys like Calvin Johnson, Gaines Adams, Joe Thomas and Jamaal Anderson will not be on the board.  However, these mock drafts indicate that guys like Jarrett, Ginn, Okoye, and Hall will be around.  As we keep an eye on mock drafts over the next nine weeks, things will come further into focus.  There will always be room for surprises come Draft day, but it will be fun in the meantime trying to outguess the "experts."
