SB Nation 1st round Recap and 49ers Looking Forward

EDITOR'S UPDATE 9:45AM - While there are still some picks to be posted, I'd like to see what people have to say to this question. If you had to choose specifically between Jerod Mayo, Shawn Crable and Quentin Groves, which would you take and why? I'm also going to post a poll on this.

Thanks to the hustle of Mocking the Draft and a few of our editors, we've completed the first round of the 2008 SB Nation Mock Draft.  Head on over to Mocking the Draft to check out a review of the draft.

In the meantime, Matt Miller has put together his list of the 50 best players remaining (in the link above).  I think this will kill our chances of getting Jerod Mayo, for those who wanted him.  However, there are still plenty of talented players left.  The second round starts up tomorrow and if it's like last weekend, we'll see two picks tomorrow and two picks on Sunday, meaning our 8th pick of the second round will be the first one posted this coming Tuesday.

So, with a few days to figure out what we want, I thought I'd throw this thread open for the weekend (barring any breaking news) and get people chatting it up.  Looking at Matt's Top 50 list, I see several names that I would have no problem selecting:

  1. Jerod Mayo, ILB, Tennessee
  2. Shawn Crable, LB, Michigan
  3. Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan State
  4. Quentin Groves, OLB, Auburn
  5. Brandon Flowers, CB, Virginia Tech
I realize other sites could check ours out and steal some of our ideas, but considering it's just a mock, whoop-dee-damn-doo.  Feel free to throw out any ideas you might have for that second round pick.  I know who I would like, but let's see if there is any kind of consensus here.

EDITOR'S UPDATE 7:45PM - Devin Thomas just went to the Rams.
