Will the 49ers 2012 Draft Class be as Successful as the 49ers 2011 Draft Class

In my last article I ranked the team's offseason needs by position. The 49ers have addressed some of those positions through free agency but work still needs to be done, like for one bringing in a replacement for Adam Snyder at the right guard position. The 49ers can address the rest of their positional needs, such as the guard position, through the 2012 NFL Draft.

I will project the 49ers' picks rounds one through four, according to their positional needs and who will likely be available. So as much as I would like to have the 49ers taking David DeCastro at 30th, don't be upset if I don't, as DeCastro could be picked as high as the 12th pick.

We also have to consider the 49ers draft philosophy which is based on drafting the best player available, and not on need. Shall we mock?
