Site 2nd Rnd Pick Pos. Ht. Wt. College Pick Assessment
NFL Draft Countdown - (Updated 3/17) Early Doucet WR 6-0 207 LSU Their Take - "They desperately need offensive playmakers and this guy is a great fit for Mike Martz's system." - (Updated 4/5) Early Doucet WR 6-0 207 LSU Their Take - "I know the 49ers just signed Bryant Johnson and Isaac Bruce, but they have to be crazy if they expect the latter to play well enough to start. And as for Johnson, he failed to produce when Larry Fitzgerald and/or Anquan Boldin were out of the lineup. Mike Martz loves having tons of wide outs to work with. I'd live to give the 49ers an offensive tackle, but all of the second-round prospects are gone. They can grab one of equal talent in Round 3."
FF Toolbox - (Updated 3/21) Mario Manningham WR 6-0 185 Michigan Their Take - "QB Alex Smith needs some weapons in the air attack if he is ever going to pan out."
The Football Expert - (Updated 4/5) Quentin Groves OLB 6-3 254 Auburn Their Take -- The 49ers could take Groves in the first round, but may be lucky and get him in the 2nd. Groves and Connor would immediately improve the 49ers' defense. Mario Manningham is a possibility, but Groves is too good of a fit in their system not to take him.
DraftTek - (Updated 2/15) James Hardy WR 6-6 220 Indiana NES Take - Hardy is a player who should have come back for his senior season. He’s raw in his route running and isn’t much of an athlete. Hardy’s biggest asset is playing in the red zone where he can use his frame to gain separation. Good at reaching for a badly thrown ball. Shows the ability to get his feet down in bounds. Not explosive or fast. Character concerns could scare a lot of teams off.
NFL Draft Guys - (Updated 4/4) Mario Manningham WR 6-0 178 Michigan Their Take - At times Manningham reminds me of Ike Bruce, and a year as his understudy would be valuable.
Draft 32 - (Updated 4/8) Andre Caldwell WR 6-1 200 Florida Their Take - "After taking a receiver in round one, SF will almost have to adress some defensive needs with their next pick. Running the 3-4, Groves would be a great outside linebacker addition to compliment the already stellar play of Patrick Willis."
Junkyard Jake - (Updated 4/5) Early Doucet WR 6-0 207 LSU NES Take - "After being a No. 3 receiver for his entire career in Baton Rouge, Doucet was expected to be the go-to guy this season. For the most part, he disappointed in that role. He was never able to get it going. He'll still receive a high draft grade because of his obvious natural ability and high ceiling, however he is also a risk to be a bust because of his lack of high-level production in college.
Consensus Draft Services - (Updated 3/18) Bruce Davis DE 6-3 237 UCLA Doesn't even look like a tweener. Straight OLB with this guy. -- Fooch
Fantasy Football Jungle - (Updated 4/6) Calais Campbell DE 6-8 280 Miami Their Take - "The 49ers don't have a good D-line and with B. Young retiring it's only going to get worse unless they address it this offseason. Campbell is now at the size and weight where he would be more productive in a 3-4 as an end than a 4-3, so he fits this defense well. Miami is known for their fast, tough defensive players and Campbell is no exception. He's solid against the run and often tackles guys behind the line of scrimmage. He's raw in his pass rushing moves, but he can still find his way to the QB. The DE tandem of Campbell and J. Smith will make for an excellent pash rush."
Draft Season - (Updated 4/2) Early Doucet WR 6-0 207 LSU Their Take - "The 9ers new aerial assault gets a shifty receiver right here."
Sports Fountainhead - (Updated 3/12) Jerod Mayo ILB 6-2 230 Tennessee NES Take - A two-year starter who has come on strong in the post-season. Mayo is the most athletic option for teams looking to add a middle linebacker. He is a very active tackler, can drop into coverage and has the frame to hold up in a 3-4 defense. Mayo has moved himself in to the first round.
The Football Expert(Cox) - (Updated 4/4) Antoine Cason CB 6-1 192 Arizona Their Take - "Walt Harris has had a nice career spanning four teams, but will turn 34 in August. With every passing year it gets harder to keep up with the incoming collegiate talent that is faster and faster. They will want to add another option in case this season turns out to be his last. During the combine Cason ran well enough to quiet talk his is too slow for the NFL. He also adds ability on returns as he demonstrated against Oregon this year when he scored two touchdowns, one on an interception and another on a punt return. The 49ers had veteran receiver Michael Lewis returning punts last year. He’ll turn 37 this November and obviously his fastest days are behind him given the 7.6 yards per return."
New Era Scouting - (Updated 3/29) Shawn Crable LB 6-5 243 Michigan ESPN Insider Take - Crable, who is coming off his first season as a starter in 2006, is an underrated prospect that could rise quickly up draft boards with a strong showing as a senior. He still has room to improve in terms of his consistency versus the run and awareness in coverage. However, his outstanding combination of size and speed are intriguing in terms of pro potential. Crable's versatility as an OLB that can rush the passer and drop in coverage gives him additional value as a draft prospect, especially with so many NFL teams using some fashion of the 3-4 defensive alignment.
Mocking the Draft - (Updated 12/2) Barry Richardson OT 6-7 320 Clemson ESPN Insider Take - "Richardson has all the tools to become a franchise left tackle but his technique needs work and he has to get tougher at the point of attack. If he can improve in both of those areas during his senior season, he could be the third or fourth tackle to come off the board in 2008." (Editor: As this is dated, we're listed as #2 in the 2nd round based on 12/2 record)
The New NFL Draft - (Updated 4/7) Mario Manningham WR 6-0 185 Michigan Their Take - "San Francisco needs to give Alex Smith some playmaker’s. Mario Manningham played for one of the elite college teams and was a great College receiver. After he ran poorly at the combine he dropped out of the first round and in some draft boards out of the second round. After Manningham performed well at his 2008 NFL Pro Day I have him jumping back up into the early second round picks of my 2008 NFL Mock Draft.
49ers Thoughts - (Updated 4/5) Early Doucet WR 6-0 207 LSU Their Take - "San Francisco had bad quarterbacking last year, but the fact that they had one of the worst receiving corps in the NFL didn't help either. They signed Bryant Johnson and Iasic Bruce, but neither have the ability that Doucet has. Doucet is very precise and fits Mike Martz's system very well."
Pro Draft Guide - (Updated 2/27) Cliff Avril DE 6-3 247 Purdue Their Take - "This may be a reach but Avril is a better prospect than Anthony Spencer (1st round, 2007) and his combine elevated his stock greatly."
Walter Football - Matt McGuire - (Updated 3/29) Chil Rachal G 6-5 315 USC Their Take - "The David Baas experiment absolutely failed. He is a total bust and must be upgraded."
Football Jabber - (Updated 3/26) Quentin Groves OLB 6-4 254 Auburn Their Take - "The Niners were a weak pass rush team and Tully Banta-Cain failed to live up to the hype. Groves would play with his hand up and add a dimension to the Niners defense that they lacked last year."
Fox Sports - Chris Steuber - (Updated 1/25) Lawrence Jackson DE 6-5 270 USC Their Take - "The Niners have to generate a consistent pass rush and adding a DE is a priority. USC standout Lawrence Jackson gives the Niners a potential sack artist."
Football Thoughts - (Updated 4/6) Early Doucet WR 6-0 207 LSU Their Take - "When your top weapons are Darrell Jackson and Arnaz Battle, you need help. In order for Alex Smith not to be considered a bust, he'll need more tall powerful receivers like Doucet to find in the end zone."
NFL Draft Prospects - (Updated 4/7) Andre Caldwell WR 6-1 200 Florida I've never trusted Florida wide receivers as they seem to have a track record of being less than even solid. That's my only reason for not wanting ANY Florida receivers. Of course maybe things are different under Meyer than all those Spurrier receivers -- Fooch
