Bizarro 49ers - Mocks vs Reality 2010 -2013


Alright, so I'm bored - off season takes way too long, so there's that.

Anyway, browsing through SB Nation I came across this article that compared some expert mock-drafts for the Seahawks versus what actually happened during the draft over the last four years, and that lead me to compile a quick list of my own for the 49ers.

Nothing earth shattering, but it's still kind of fun to see players I don't even remember being mocked to us in the early rounds and compare them to some of the studs (and some duds too, sadly) we got instead.

I used Walterfootball.com as the mock of choice, not because it's particularly good but because it was the best mock I found for all 4 years - I'm sure there are more reputable sites for mocks that I could have found, but I do have a day-job that I have to pretend to do when people are looking....

Anyway, without further delay, here is mock vs reality 2010-2013:
