2011 NFL Draft, Third Round Predictions: What Cornerbacks Should The 49ers Be Considering?

As we now make our way into the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft, recent developments give me a chance to update my "predictions" for the 49ers third round pick. I would be surprised if they did not select a cornerback with this pick, particularly with a guy like Stephen Paea coming off the board in round two. Here is how NFLDraftScout.com ranks the remaining cornerbacks:

1 (56). Davon House, New Mexico State
2 (65). Chimdi Chekwa, Ohio State
3 (69). Curtis Brown, Texas
4 (89). Shareece Wright, USC
5 (94). Johnny Patrick, Louisville

After the jump, I've posted our updated community big board with selected players crossed out and available players in bigger font. The top cornerback there is Davon House and the top overall player is Justin Houston.
