Re-Drafting San Francisco 49ers' 2013 NFL Draft
Associated Press
Would Eric Reid be the 49ers' first-round pick in a re-draft of the 2013 NFL draft?

If the San Francisco 49ers could go back in time knowing what they know today, whom would they have selected in the 2013 NFL draft?

I gave it my best guess in the following slides.

The main two factors in this re-draft are how good the player was in his rookie season and where the Niners' needs are. I also took my projections on the players' long-term success into account. 

In this re-draft, I made all picks under the assumption that the rest of the teams drafted the same way they did in 2013. For example, though Keenan Allen should've been picked way before the third round in the 2013 draft, he's available until the same spot in this re-draft. 

Keep in mind that this article is not an attempt to bash the 49ers' front office for making mistakes. On the contrary, I've kept five of the 11 picks the same, which is uncommonly good for an NFL re-draft.
