Mock Draft Wrong Bunch
We're back with another look at our 2011 NFL Mock Draft Database of 49ers pick predictions. The combine is officially underway and next week we could start to see some significant changes in the predictions. Given that I figured it'd be nice to have one last look before that shake-up happens. As compared to last week's mock draft database we had very little change. Patrick Patterson and cornerbacks remain the top player and position.
The most significant change sees Von Miller drop to just one mock draft prediction and Robert Quinn add a few more predictions to bring his total to five. While the Combine is fairly important to everybody, a guy like Quinn gets even more out of it because he missed all of 2010 due to eligibility issues. He'll get a chance to show what kind of condition he is in and how motivated he has been without the discipline of a coach and team.
I can't really make predictions about who will have a big Combine, but I can make some predictions based on hypotheticals. For instance, if Patrick Peterson has a strong Combine, particularly in terms of the 40-yard dash, he could officially price himself out of the 49ers range. The Broncos re-signing of Champ Bailey might impact that, but if Peterson has a strong Combine I'd have to imagine somebody out there would want him in the top six, whether it be a current team or a team trading up.
