A few days ago, I took a look at some mock drafts on our various team-specific NFL blogs here on SB Nation. I started with the intention of doing all of them, but once I hit 1000 words, I decided I would break them up. Last time, we took a look at the NFC and AFC North blogs and their picks for the 49ers. As it stands, the 49ers ended up with Prince Amukamara in three-of-five mocks, while Von Miller and Blaine Gabbert rounded out the other two. Interestingly enough, our Baltimore Ravens blog gave us Ras-I Dowling and Shane Vereen in rounds two and three, respectively.
So that's what we have on that front. Next, I took a look at our NFC and AFC East blogs and what direction they had the 49ers going in. Two of the six mocks had the 49ers landing Patrick Peterson, the consensus number one corner and possibly the best player in the draft, which would be a wonderful circumstance, I think. So I'm going to go ahead and assume that The Phinsider and Gang Green Nation is filled with scholars and gentlemen.
Beyond that, the remaining four mocks all had different players going to San Francisco at seven. We had Von Miller in one mock from Blogging The Boys, our Dallas Cowboys blog, and they described him as "this draft's DeMarcus Ware." No matter how you look at it, that's high praise from a fanbase that isn't high on bestowing praise on others. Our Eagles blog kept it simple and gave us Prince Amukamara.
Pats Pulpit gave us Robert Quinn, and in the second round, had the 49ers picking Davon House, the cornerback out of New Mexico State. Honestly, I would be really happy with that, as House is my sleeper at the position in this draft. I think House is physical and can be a starting corner in the NFL, and is well-worth taking in the second round.
The surprise pick was A.J. Green, courtesy of our New York Giants blog. I think it's something that's unlikely to happen, but not altogether impossible or anything like that. But now it's time to vote. Who do you think has their finger on the pulse the best? Not necessarily which mock worked out the best, which two divisions were the most realistic?
Which set of blogs has their finger closest to the pulse?
