49ers draft predictions: Random predictions

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers hold 13 picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, which means all sorts of things could happen. The team will be involved in trades, but they also hold three comp picks that cannot be traded. What sort of random things could happen Thursday through Saturday?

The 2013 NFL Draft is just around the corner, which means everybody and their mother is making predictions. Most people are simply mocking out the first round, guessing what could happen in what could prove to be a wildly unpredictable draft.

I thought we'd try something a little different.

We've had plenty of mock drafts, and discussions about the 49ers picks on days one and two. For tonight, I thought it would be more fun to open the door to the random predictions that have to be on some of your minds. Maybe it's a specific player or position with one of the 49ers's later picks. Or maybe you are prepared to predict the exact number of trades the 49ers will make. I don't know, but I wanted to open the floor for any and every random prediction you want to make.

To kick things off, I think for one, the 49ers will select a quarterback in this draft with one of their two seventh round compensation picks. I think Jim Harbaugh wants to add a quarterback to compete with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien. The team could just wait for undrafted free agency, but with a plethora of picks (you'll be seeing that video a LOT), why risk losing out on a QB Jim Harbaugh might like?

To add on to that, I think the 49ers will trade pick No. 31 of the seventh round as part of a package involving an earlier pick. Just to get really specific, I'll go with packaging a fifth and seventh for a 2014 fourth. I think the 49ers end up involved in four trades throughout the three days of the draft. Those will involve a mix of 2013 and 2014 picks, but I think the team adds three picks to next year's haul.

What are your randomly specific predictions for the 49ers in the 2013 NFL Draft?
