DraftTek's Updated 7-Round Mock For the Niners

To my knowledge, DraftTek is the only service that has their full 7-round mock published at this point in the cycle ... if there are others please let us all know so that we can take a look.  DraftTek has made a lot of changes to their prospect rankings in the last two weeks as a result of the East-West Game and Senior Bowl practice week.  Here's how they see the Niners' draft at this point in time:

Round 1 - Pick 7:  Robert Quinn  3/4OLB  North Carolina  6'5" 268#  (ranked 6th overall = +1)

Round 2 - Pick 45:  Brandon Burton  CB  Utah  6'0" 185#  (ranked 45th overall = 0)

Round 3 - Pick 76:  Andy Dalton  QB  TCU  6'3"  215#  (ranked 69th overall = +7)

Round 4 - Pick 107:  Jeremy Kerley  WR  TCU  5'10"  192#  (ranked 104th overall and rising =  +3)

Round 4 - Pick 114:  Phil Taylor  NT  Baylor  6'4"  355#  (ranked 145th overall = -31)

Round 5 - Pick 137:  Roy Helu  RB  Nebraska  6'0"  220#  (ranked 123rd overall = +14)

Round 6 - Pick 168:  Lazarius Levingston  3/4DE  LSU  6'4"  280#  (ranked 180th overall and rising = -12)

Round 6 - Pick 185:  Rob McGill  LOT  Louisiana Tech  6'6"  310#  (ranked 205th overall and rising = -20)

Round 7 - Pick 199:  Will Hill  FS  Florida  6'1"  205#  (ranked 208th overall = -9)

Round 7 - Pick 204:  Greg Salas  WR  Hawaii  6'2"  200#  (ranked 227th overall = -23)

 

Actually, were these picks to be the real thing, it's not a bad draft at all.  Let's see if I can improve it some:

At Pick 76:  I take Christian Ponder  QB  Florida State  6'3"  227#  (ranked 63rd* overall)  over Andy Dalton

At Pick 107:  I take Tandon Doss  WR  Indiana  6'3"  200#  (ranked 108th and rising)  over Jeremy Kerley

At Pick 137:  I take Owen Marecic  FB  Stanford  6'1"  243#  (ranked 84th* overall)  over Roy Helu

At Pick 199:  I take Curtis Marsh  CB  Utah State  6'0"  193#  (ranked 207th and rising)  over Will Hill

At Pick 204:  I take Will Hill  FS  Florida  6'1"  205#  (ranked 208th overall)  over Greg Salas

 

Thus, in my version, we get a higher-ranked and better-suited (IMO) QB, a taller wideout instead of another slot receiver, a starting fullback instead of a backup running back, and a second cornerback instead of a second wide receiver.  Better!

So, what do you guys think?

 

*  Note -- Even though they were ranked higher than where I selected them, in DraftTek's mock both Ponder and Marecic were still available where I picked them.
