With Day 1 of the NFL draft behind us, the board has been narrowed, and the intentions of 32 teams have become a bit clearer.
In the first round, the deep-pocketed San Francisco 49ers traded up, sending the No. 31 and No. 74 overall picks to the Dallas Cowboys for No. 18. At that point, GM Trent Baalke pulled the trigger on LSU safety Eric Reid.
This was a primary need that San Francisco clearly addressed early on.
However, as we go forward into Day 2 and beyond, we’ll be heading into the real meat of the draft. There are several high-ceiling prospects scattered throughout these middle rounds—talent just waiting to be plucked.
With 11 picks remaining at their disposal, the San Francisco 49ers can still maneuver and bring in difference-makers. For a mock completing the Niners’ 2013 draft, proceed through the following slides.
NINER NATION!!!!! Fly out to San Fran in the morning ✈✈😁😁
