Looking back at my first Mock Draft I realize I reached on certain spots and with Nmandi being signed obviously needs have changed while others stay the same. Again I'll keep it simple although I'm still hoping Baalke makes a trade or two, to move up. Here we go!
#31 Dantone Jones, DE, UCLA: (6'4" 283lb, 4.75) As we saw in the playoff, our DL played against more and more teams playing 3 WR sets which asked more of Smith and McDonald and saw less of Sopoaga making NT a lesser need as the game goes on. Jones not only provides depth in the short run but an instant starter in case of injury or retirement.
( Past Pick: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi St.)
#34 Eric Reid, FS, LSU: (6'1" 213lb, 4.49)- With the lose of Goldson, this position is one we have to address early and with Vaccaro probably gone early in the draft, I believe Reid will be available early in the 2nd and can play early and beat out Dahl in the preseason.
(Past Pick: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee)
#61 Travis Frederick, C/G, Wisconsin: (6'4" 312lb, 5.55)- This is Goodwin's last year on his contract and he's also not that young. Frederick can learn from Goodwin this year and would benefit this team's future. With his capability of playing both G and C his chances of staying with the team and opening a roster spot for more DEs would definitely help our chances to returning to the Superbowl.
(Past Pick: Jonathan Hankins, NT, Ohio St.)
#74 John Jenkins, NT, Georgia: (6'4" 346lb, 5.23)- Ian Williams is not the answer at NT. Jenkins is a beast and with great coaching he can be the run stopper to clog the middle to replace Sopoaga.
( Past Pick: Brian Schwenke, C, Cal)
#93 Vance McDonald, TE, Rice: (6'4" 267lb, 4.60)- McDonald showed great hands and blocking skills in his pro day according to NFL scouts. With Walker gone McDonald seems to be a perfect replacement for the whole left by Walker.
(Past Pick: David Quessenberry, OT, San Jose St)
#125 David Quessenberry, OT, San Jose St: (6'5" 302lb, 5.06)- With Boone now a starting RG we need a swing OT. With Quessenberry being a local product not much scouting needs to be done. I think he'll add talent to a position that really doesn't need an instant starter but a great backup.
(Past Pick: JJ Wilcox, FS, Georgia Southern)
