2011 NFL Draft, Day Three: 49ers With Seven Picks To Dominate End Of Draft!


And we're back for the last day of the 2011 NFL Draft. When I first started Niners Nation I decided to live blog the entire 2007 NFL Draft. It was two days long but each day was longer. Four years later it's suddenly not quite so bad sitting through the entire draft. Prior to start NN I don't think I'd ever watched more than three or four hours total in a given year. It's amazing how much this site has gotten me hooked on the draft.

Speaking of this site, yesterday NN set a single day record page views with over 113,000. Our previous record had been somewhere in the 70,000 range during the Harbaughcolypse. Each year traffic has gotten crazier and crazier, and I want to thank everybody for continuing to swing by here when you're in the mood to chat about the 49ers. Things get a little crazy at times, but at the end of the day we're all here to have a good time.

Speaking of good times, the 49ers will be fairly busy the latter half of today as they have seven picks in the final two rounds, with three sixth round picks and four seventh round picks. They unloaded their fifth round pick in the Kaepernick trade, but added a sixth when they moved down to get Chris Culliver. Anybody think they make another trade at some point possibly back into the fifth round? Maybe even a move up in the fourth as there is a lot of interesting talent still on the board.

Consider the 2011 49ers like the bizarro Patriots. The Patriots make moves to load up on first and second round picks, while the 49ers load up on sixth and seventh round picks. Just perfect.

For informational purposes, here are the remaining 49ers picks:

As we get things going, just a reminder again that site decorum is off, but you still have to be respectful of other members of the community. Additionally, please do not post GIFs and keep JPGs to a minimum and relatively pertinent to the proceedings, at least during the draft. These threads fill up incredibly quickly and JPGs and GIFs slow things down.
