San Francisco 49ers Big Board: Final Pre-Draft Update
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

With 13 picks in the 2013 NFL draft, the San Francisco 49ers will have plenty of opportunities to find their next cornerstone player. 

Most expect the 49ers to trade up several times; after all, San Francisco doesn't have room for 13 rookies on its roster. 

Will the Niners make a major splash by trading into the first half of the first round to take a dominant defensive lineman? Or will they stay put on Day 1 and focus on packaging picks on Days 2 and 3?

Before considering all the possibilities, take a look at this guide, which includes my best guess at the 49ers big board, my rankings of every position and a final five-round mock draft. In putting this together I studied mock drafts and analysis from Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, CBS Sports and WalterFootball.com. I also watched highlights of dozens of prospects.  

Will my efforts prove futile? Well, if general manager Trent Baalke is as unpredictable as he's been in recent drafts, we'll all be way off.
