2013 NN NFL mock draft: With the sixty-first pick, the San Francisco 49ers select ...

The Niners Nation Community Mock Draft moves to pick No. 61, which belongs to the San Francisco 49ers.

Kevin C. Cox

We're on to the twenty-ninth pick of the second round, No. 61 overall in the 2013 Niners Nation NFL mock draft. The San Francisco 49ers are back on the clock with their final pick. GM Tre9er is back for this final pick, and he gets to select a guy he has been high on for some time. With the sixty-first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the 49ers select Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia.

Explanation: The versatility of Cyprien and Rambo means the 49ers can play all sorts of coverages, knowing they have two of the most versatile safeties, both rangy in the back half and willing to come make plays in the run game. This is the best possible outcome for a team that needs impact players at the Safety position and we couldn't be happier about getting TWO great players for the future of the secondary.

Trevor Woods: While Tre's plan will give the 49ers depth for the future at safety, I am not sure getting another safety here is the way to go. The 49ers still have needs at other positions to address. Other needs include tight end -- (Travis Kelce, Vance McDonald, Gavin Escobar are options at pick No. 61), and defensive lineman, receiver, cornerback, and possibly center. The 49ers have a lot of picks but they need to make sure that they make quality picks and draft the players they want. Rambo is a good pick and he could even be part of a platoon at safety with Cyprien. If two rookie safeties are added like Tre is proposing, competition would ensue, making both players better. I don't think the 49ers will be drafting two safeties with their first three picks, but if they do, you heard it first from Tre.

Nick Chiamardas: If you follow Tre on Twitter you know he's a proponent of drafting two safeties in this class. With pick 61 he sticks to his guns by selecting Rambo to pair with first round pick Jonathan Cyprien. Rambo is another combo style safety that might project better as a free safety due to his above average ball skills. If this scenario plays out, it certainly would be interesting to see how the 49ers would handle the two young defensive backs.
