For those who have been checking in at Niners Nation for at least 10 or so months, you probably remember the mock draft database we had in place last season. There are probably hundreds of mock drafts out there providing useful and not so useful information. Hail Redskins is one of the preeminent mock draft databases, but naturally they focus on Redskins picks. So, last year I decided to create a mock draft database of 49ers picks. We started with just first round picks, but slowly added second and third rounders as well.
Well, now we're back with the 2009 Niners Nation Mock Draft Database. If you checked out last year's, you'll notice some changes. I've removed player height and weight, and I've removed the specific sites commentary. Space was an issue and it's a pain in the butt copying that stuff over. I may add it back in down the road, but I'm not sure yet. As with last year, the plan is to update the database once a week. Of course, if somebody out there has some free time and wants it updated on a more regular basis, I'd certainly accept a volunteer for the task. If you're interested in helping with this, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (or post a comment here) and we can figure something out.
It's still early so some of these mocks might occasionally throw out some pretty random picks. Also, underclassmen will be declaring in the coming weeks, which will affect many of these mock drafts. Right now we've got 23 mock drafts and I will continue to add more to the list. At the bottom of the page you can see the breakdown of positions and players being projected so far. Also, in the coming weeks I'll add pages with 2nd and 3rd round picks more than likely.
If you don't see a particular mock draft, feel free to let me know through the comments or via email and I'll get them added. There is no real order to these and some obviously are a little more "expert" than others. To give you an idea of the value of some of these mocks: Last year I had approximately 58 first round mocks up and only 2 had the 49ers selecting Kentwan Balmer.
