ESPN's dynamic duo, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, each dropped their latest NFL mock draft to entertain the masses. Kiper continues to go with a little of the crazy juice, as he has the Houston Texans selecting Johnny Manziel with the number one pick. McShay has Manziel going No. 5 to the Oakland Raiders (somehow fitting), and Jadaveon Clowney going No. 1 overall.
Analysis: Knowing how Jim Harbaugh has raved about the pass-catching ability of Michael Crabtree, I think the coach will like what he sees of Landry when he rolls the tape. It's not Harbaugh's final call to make, but what they'd get in Landry is a really strong hands-catcher who is fluid in and out of his breaks and doesn't care about making catches in traffic. Landry is a competitor, and isn't afraid to throw a block. He's done a good job of building on the considerable base of talent he flashed coming out of high school.
On the other hand, McShay has the 49ers going with Minnesota defensive tackle RaShede Hageman:
Analysis: The Niners would like to add a receiver with the ability to take the top off of a defense, but there isn't one available here worthy of a first-round pick. But while the 49ers' defensive front seven is outstanding, now is a great time to bring in another young D-lineman to develop, with Justin Smith turning 35 in September. Hageman has some boom-or-bust qualities (he needs to improve his consistency and technique), but he showed improvement last season, is tall, well-proportioned and naturally strong, and not many guys his size move like he does. Landing with a defense like San Francisco's could be exactly what he needs.
Thoughts on these two? I remain skeptical about the 49ers grabbing a defensive tackle in the first round. There is always a long-term need there, particularly as Justin Smith and Ray McDonald get older, but I really don't see it as a first round pick. Maybe I'm missing something.
I can't post entire their entire mocks in here, but if you have specific questions about who else is going where, let me know in the comments, and I'll respond with a few basic details.
