Interesting 5 Round Mock Draft + FA scenario - speculate. Would you like?

In FA we resign Morgan and Alex and if possible Rogers and Ginn, (If Rogers walks sign Finnegan, if Ginn walks that will be addressed in the draft) and sign Robert Meachem WR

We slap a 2nd round tender on Larry Grant. The Eagles who have a miserable linebacking corps snatch him up kindly giving us their 51st pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Come draft time:

With the 30th pick we take Stephen Hill WR Georgia Tech - WR is now taken care of. We have Morgan, Meachem, Crabtree for possession receivers and Hill, Kyle Williams (and possibly Ginn) as burners.

Then we trade pick 51, (From Philadelphia for Larry Grant), 94 and 190 for pick 38

At pick 38 the Niners draft Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin. Zeitler is a stud and technician and as he will demonstrate at his pro day can also play center. (This will come in handy for when we move Anthony Davis to RG and draft a real tackle in the near future)

At pick 62 the Niner take Markelle Martin FS Oklahoma St. Martin, like our current FS, absolutely lays the wood. Unlike our current FS, he doesn't take horrible angles and whiff tackles or get burnt in coverage. Upgrade as early as next season and we let Goldson go after the riches he so desires

Rd 4. Pick 126 (not including compensatory picks) Niners take Jared Crick (3-4 DE) Nebraska. Crick in this scenario has slipped a little after a mediocre combine and a bit of bad, (for him), luck. At this point he's the BPA and the Niners take him as a developmental prospect to push Dobbs and may the best man win.

Rd 5. Pick 158 (not including compensatory picks) Here the Niners gamble with character issues in hopes of some maturation and a big payoff. The Niners select Cliff Harris CB Oregon. The talent has always been there for Harris especially as a return man but the legal troubles and not top tier athleticism will make him slide.

We address WR with 2 new players and 1 to 2 returning FAs

We address OG (and C when we move Davis to G and Zeitler to C)

And we add depth at CB, FS and D-Line.

Agreed? Alright lets get crackin on this Baalke
