Thanks to everybody that is voting for our 49ers community big board. We've got less than three weeks until the 2011 NFL Draft and here are players 21-25. I've posted the full list after the jump and will continue updating the list after the jump of each post:
It's safe to say I should have added Colin Kaepernick several polls ago. He was a new addition in yesterday's poll and ran away with the top spot, which would seem to indicate folks would have had him at least a little bit higher than 21st. Given how our Top 25 currently stands, how high would you have placed Kaepernick had he been available in prior polls? Top 20? Top 15? Top 10?
I've posted . If you have a player you think belongs in the available voting options for the next poll, please mention that person in the comments. After the jump, I've posted a few pointers on the vote and the poll for spots 26-30. The primary thing to keep in mind is that you're making your selections based on how you think the 49ers should order their own big board. You can go best player available, need, value, character concerns, or any combination of those. Again, please just vote once. But do vote, because the more people that vote, the more accurate the representation will be of the community as a whole.

First off, remember that you can use the scroll bar on the right side to see the last few names. They're in alphabetical order by last name.
I realize I've probably left out players you might like, but given that we're looking at spots 21-25, I think I've included most, if not all, of the important names. I've pulled from Scouts Inc rankings for now and can only pull 25 at a time. We'll be doing this poll every day so we'll be adding five new players every day. If you have specific players you think should be added for the next poll, please mention them in the comments.
In the end, how you vote is up to you, but just remember that this is a 49ers big board. Not a mock draft and not a big board that can be applied to every team. Use your own philosophy, but just pretend this would be going to the 49ers when we're done.
