Writing from an oceanfront vista in Mexico on Christmas Eve, it’s only appropriate that we compose such a wish list for the 49ers.
(Especially after the disaster that was the 42-13 blowout loss to the Seahawks on Sunday night.)
The 2013 draft class isn’t nearly as rich in quarterbacks, running backs and overall offensive talent. Luckily for San Francisco, however, there’s an abundance of impressive defensive prospects, as well as some solid options on offense.
Plus, the 49ers are fairly set at QB, RB and the offensive line. And we all know how Jim Harbaugh and company sure love quality, hard-nosed defenders.
A million and one things will invariably take place that will affect prospect rankings, the draft order and team needs for San Francisco. It’s also unlikely that the 49ers will keep every one of their 14 picks.
But those factors won’t preclude us from assembling a handsome list of players and full mock draft.
On that note, let’s take a gander at seven players from Rounds 1 through 7 who would make a fine wish list for the 49ers in the 2013 draft.
