2009 NFL Draft: Day 1, Thread 1

2009_draft_logo_medium

And away we go.  We've gotten the new jerseys (feel free to continue the discussion in that thread) and now it's time to get some players to fill those jerseys.  The draft kicks off at 1pm pacific/4pm eastern and if you don't have access to a tv, NFL.com will have a live stream of the draft.

We've been discussing this day from pretty much the moment the 2008 season ended.  There was some reasons for disappointment and some reasons for excitement.  Either way, the Draft is a day when every team has a chance to get that next big impact player that will change the face of the franchise.

The 49ers have done some very good things in the draft and some VERY BAD THINGS.  Although I think there is a certain number of players considered above the rest, it's still been a fairly unpredictable mock season.  The 49ers could be looking at anyone from Michael Oher and Brian Orakpo to Mark Sanchez and Aaron Maybin.  Maybe Michael Crabtree, B.J. Raji or Andre Smith fall to them at 10, or maybe they just deal that pick.  In the end, it's pretty hard to figure anything out.  However, I think those cover all the likely options.

We've got several scouting reports for you to check out if you're looking for info on a certain player.  Additionally, heading on over to Mocking the Draft for some truly extensive NFL Draft coverage.  They've done a large number of quick hitting scouting reports on an assortment of players.  More importantly, SB Nation got a pair of press passes for The Sports Guru and JasonB so we'll hopefully we'll get some 49ers-specific insight from them.

Depending on how quickly this thread fills up, we'll be back with a new thread when the 49ers make their selection.  In the meantime, after the jump we've got a compilation of first round mocks from the various writers/moderators here at Niners Nation, as well as one for Dumb Luck and Bonzo the Idiot Monkey's picks.

Finally, if you feel you might get depressed rather quickly during the draft, feel free to take part in the Mel Kiper drinking game (courtesy of MinerNiner).  It's a sure-fire way to drown your sorrows.

FOOCH'S NOTE 1:25PM: If you're swinging by the site for the first time, feel free to register and join in the discussion.  It's free and it's easy.  It's gonna be a crazy day for everyone today.
