Full 7 round Niners Mock, v1.0

FA Assumptions:

-Delanie Walker re-signs

-Goldson tests the FA market

-RJF, Grant sign elsewhere for starter money

-Sopoaga re-signs to a team-friendly deal

1.31 - Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

Hankins is a big, mobile tackle who has experience playing across a bunch of different positions on the defensive line. He can rotate at both NT and DT and give us much needed depth/rest for Smith and McDonald.

2.2 - Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International

Cyprien is quickly rising up draft boards. He's a hard hitter, but what impresses me more are his smarts in coverage (something the current Niners are missing from their safety corps). He's also capable of playing either strong or free safety, which provides some flexibility with Goldson's free agency.

2.31 - Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech

Rogers is a supremely athletic receiver specimen (I've seen him referred to as a Julio Jones clone) but has had major issues off the field. However, he seemed geniunely reformed from his combine interviews. He and Crabs could form a deadly 1-2 punch at WR. Harbaalke have taken calculated risks on "character problem" guys before if they payout is right, and it could easily be right here.

3.13 - Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State

Taylor elevated his name a bit at the Combine, but he's always been a strong 2nd/3rd round CB prospect. We need to improve the depth and talent in the defensive backfield and Taylor may well be the best CB on the board here.

3.31 - Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina

The near-perfect coincidence of circumstances between SF and Lattimore has been discussed in great depth here. With 5 of the first 93 picks in hand and not a huge list of dire needs, the Niners are one of the few teams that can afford to spend a 3rd/4th on a guy who probably won't play in 2013. Lattimore would be a great addition to our stable of RBs in 2014 and a potential long-term successor for Gore.

4.31 - Cornelius Washington, OLB, Georgia

Additional depth for our pass rush. Washington didn't have great production at UGA but he has tremendous physical upside. With Haralson a likely cap casualty, we have very little depth behind Smith and Brooks at OLB.

4.?? (likely comp. pick) - Joe Kruger, DE/DT, Utah

Another big body for the defensive line. Joe (younger brother of Ravens LB Paul) was in the shadow (figuratively, but perhaps also literally) of Star Lotulelei at Utah but is a legitimate pro prospect in his own right.

5.24 - Ricky Wagner, OT, Wisconsin

With Boone's promotion to starting RG, we have no backup at OT. Wagner was a solid performer at Wisconsin and would provide needed depth

5.31 - Dustin Hopkins, K, Florida State

Akers is almost certainly going to be cut this offseason, leaving the Niners with no kicker. Hopkins is the top kicker in the draft, and would be well worth a 5th round pick.

6.12 - Josh Johnson, CB, Purdue

More CB depth. Johnson is a little small at 5-9 and is probably best suited to be a slot corner, but he's got talent.

6.31 - Michael Mauti, ILB, Penn State

Mauti was a strong player and great locker room leader for the Nittany Lions this year. With Grant likely winning a starting position somewhere this offseason, we could use

7.21 - Jeff Tuel, QB, Washington State

Starting QB (hopefully) will not be a need for a long time for the Niners. But good franchises always like to have some talent being developed at the position. Tuel played for a tough Wazzou team but managed to play decently through it.

7.31 - Zeke Motta, S, Notre Dame

Motta is tough against the run but lacks speed and cover ability. Will probably be a career backup/special teamer, but it's hard to expect a superstar with the 31st pick in the 7th round.

7.?? (likely comp pick) - James Ferentz, C, Iowa

Ferentz (son of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz) is a smart but extremely undersized C who had a strong 2011 but a down 2012. We may be able to coach him up into something useful.

7.?? (likely comp pick)- Lucas Reed, TE, New Mexico

Depth and competition for the 3rd TE spot.
