San Francisco 49ers 2014 Mock Draft with Player Scouting Profiles

Now that the 2013 NFL season is officially in the books, the San Francisco 49ers are readying for the upcoming NFL combine, followed by the draft, which they’ll need to run if they hope to get back in the ring and compete with the Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks.

It must be a blend of their 2011 and 2013 classes, where they hit on picks at multiple positions and managed to find value in every round. This last class was also defined by its pro-readiness, as opposed to the 2012 class, which disintegrated. 

And as far as the aggressiveness over the three-day span, they’ll be able to maneuver through this draft the same way, heading in with a similar stockpile of picks.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the 49ers are expecting to have a total of 12 picks in the upcoming 2014 NFL draft, which is far more than they need, especially with players from the last two classes yet to crack the active game-day roster.

So who will general manager Trent Baalke be targeting?

How will he prioritize certain needs, optimize the capital he has and find the final pieces that put this team over the hump?

We're mapping out their potential plan. 

In the following mock, we have only nine selections since we’re factoring in early-round trades (similar to the 2013 trades for Eric Reid, Vance McDonald and Corey Lemonier, via NFL.com). The front office will inevitably execute these with their few needs and surplus of draft picks.

They’ll be going after some big guns at key needs, while bringing in some physically striking developmental prospects and specialists.

Without any further delay, here is a round-by-round look, complete with player analysis.
