Round 1: Aldon Smith, DE, Missiouri
If you were a linebacker on the San Francisco 49ers you would have finished the season with a positive PFF rating. The average rating for a linebacker who played at least one snap was +9.4 – That number can only expect to increase with the addition of Aldon Smith. Seen as one of the most explosive pass rushers in the draft, Smith will be moved to OLB in the 49ers 3-4 system. This is a group that just keeps getting better with the contingency of only improving as younger players progress.
