Mock Draft Wrong Bunch
Mock Draft Wrong Bunch

The 2011 NFL Combine wrapped up on Tuesday, leaving us with a final seven week stretch before the 2011 NFL Draft. Now that the Combine is over I've updated our 2011 NFL Mock Draft database looking at potential first rounds picks for the 49ers. Not all mocks have updated in the last couple days, but a lot of them are reflecting Combine results.

The month of March will feature Pro Days but barring disasters I would imagine those wouldn't cause too much shuffling in draft boards. At this point interviews and drug tests would seem to be that most significant things remaining that could sink draft stock. Of course, that won't stop mock drafts from flip-flopping all over the place. For the most part it appears as though the mocks are settling in to a relatively small group of players at the seventh overall pick. Last week's mock draft database update had eight players involved, while this week's has six players.

Patrick Peterson remains the top guy, although as more mocks update following his strong showing at the Combine I have a feeling his appearances in 49ers mocks will diminish. That's not to say he won't slide down to the 49ers. However, he's done just about as much as he can to propel himself close to the top of many draft boards.

Blaine Gabbert has picked up a little momentum with seven appearances this week. Walter Football tried to provide some justifications for projecting Gabbert to the 49ers. Some were a bit flimsy. They went into the whole Harbaugh trying to recruit Gabbert:

2. I recently recalled that Jim Harbaugh attempted to recruit Gabbert. Gabbert played in a spread offense at Missouri, but ran a pro-style attack in high school. In fact, Gabbert initially wanted to go to Nebraska because of Bill Callahan's West Coast scheme.

I hadn't read about Gabbert's high school offense, but if that's true, does that change any views given his time in the spread at Missouri? I'd be curious to hear what Gabbert has to say about his decision to go to Missouri instead of Nebraska and his evolution into a spread quarterback. He says he's been working on taking snaps under center, but we'll have to wait and see how that pays off in the coming years.
