The draft is tomorrow. We've made it. NO MORE mock drafts! After this one, of course.
Attempting to draft each round for the 49ers without taking into account other teams draft needs, trades, etc. isn't meant to be dead on accurate. It's really just an idea of how I think the 49ers will go about addressing their needs this year. At the end of the day, it's a shot in the dark. I also took into account the 49ers pre-draft contact list.
Here is my 49ers 7-round mock draft:
Round 1, pick 15: CB Marcus Peters, Washington
A bit of a risk here with Peters' known attitude problems but he might be the most talented corner in the class.
Round 2, pick 46: ILB Stephone Anthony, Clemson
Anthony would provide speed, athleticism, and most importantly quality depth at inside linebacker. He'd play a major role in replacing Chris Borland and Patrick Willis.
Round 3, pick 79: WR Sammie Coates, Auburn
If one of the top three WRs are available when the 49ers pick in the first round, I think that'll be the pick. If not, Coates is a nice plan B. He'll need some work but he's a big receiver capable of stretching the field, a talent the Niners are desperately in need of.
Round 4, pick 127: RB Mike Davis, South Carolina
The Niners must add another big back to the roster to back up Carlos Hyde. Davis is deceptively quick and packs a powerful punch in his compact 5'9, 217lbs frame.
Round 4, pick 132 (Comp pick): DL Bobby Richardson, Indiana
Richardson is an experienced 5T in a 3-4 and would be an ideal fit for the Niners looking to add rotational depth to the defensive line.
Round 5, pick 151: OG Mark Glowinski, West Virginia
He doesn't have the typical build of a 49er guard but Glowinski is one of the strongest, most powerful prospects in the class. He's a tough minded, versatile linemen capable of playing both guard and tackle.
Round 6, pick 189: EDGE Zack Wagenmann, Montana
Wagenmann isn't getting a ton of love because of the level of competition he face at Montana. But 37 sacks and 52 tackles for loss are impressive no matter what.
Round 7, pick 246: TE Wes Saxton, South Alabama
The Niners really need to get some production out of their tight ends this season. Saxton will be a bit of a project but he's highly athletic and has nice hands. He could push Vance McDonald for reps.
Round 7, pick 254 (Comp pick): EDGE Ryan Delaire, Towson
The Niners wrap up their class with another small school pass rusher with excellent production. Delaire's strength off the ball is underrated and he could develop into a solid rotational player.
There ya have it! Nine new members of the 49ers including checking off needs at cornerback, linebacker, receiver, running back, defensive and offensive line, tight end, and pass rusher.
