Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE
This is a tough pick to project, as the 49ers really don't have any holes at all on their roster. Obviously it's great news for them, they can just take whoever they feel is the best player available, and at this point, in our fictional scenario, it's Xavier Rhodes.
The 2013 draft is very strong at three main positions, QB, DE/OLB and cornerback. There are four cornerbacks in this year's draft, who I would feel comfortable taking in the top 15 if I was looking to take a corner.
Rhodes is such a phenomenal athlete, he has speed, agility, acceleration, leaping ability, and overall, is very smooth. He does great in man-to-man coverage and is a guy who you can feel comfortable leaving on an island. Definitely a first-round pick, but depending on the order the CBs go, he go possibly even go around the top 10.
