San Francisco 49ers: Trends in Mock Drafts for First Round Cornerbacks
Sue Ogrocki

Last week, we looked at trends in mock drafts for the top wide receivers in this year's class.  Most draft experts have the San Francisco 49ers targeting either a wide receiver of a cornerback.

Unlike the wide receiver rankings, there’s much less of a consensus as to the top cornerback in the draft.  Five cornerbacks show up in one of the 20 mock drafts used for this sample, but the order fluctuates wildly.  There isn’t a Sammy Watkins-type who is so far above the rest of the field as to be the consensus top pick.

Using all 20 mocks in bulk, however, we can get a general picture of where the cornerbacks are expected to go, and what, if anything, the 49ers would have to do to ensure they got the corner of their choice in the first round.

As a reminder, the 20 mock drafts used for these statistics are from CBS, ESPN, NFL.com, Sporting News, Rotoworld and Sports Illustrated.  With these mocks, we’ll get a better picture at the shape of the draft at the cornerback position.

Let’s look at what the mocks have to say about the top corners available.
