The results are in for the 49er fans “49ers-2010-mock-draft-chat-build-your-own-draft" title="build your own draft" target="_self">Build your own Draft”. It is never to late for your input though; just leave whom you would like the 49ers to select for each round in the comment section.
Round 1 (pick 13): Joe Haden (5’11”, 195lbs), CB, Florida
At round selection 13, the clear-cut winner is Joe Haden. CJ Spiller was a distant second, with Trent Williams and Brian Bulaga also receiving votes.
It is a distinct possibility that Haden will still be available here.
Round 1 (pick 17): Trent Williams (6’5”, 315lbs), OT, Oklahoma, or
Brian Bulaga (6’6”, 312lbs), OT, Iowa
Both Williams and Bulaga received multiple votes at picks 13 and pick 17. Also receiving votes were safeties Taylor Mays and Earl Thomas.
The team is high on both of these guys, but they seem more enamored with Bulaga’a character. Either one would be expected to come in and improve the O-line forthwith.
Round 2 (pick 49) Terrence Cody (6’4”, 349lbs?), DT, Alabama
Cody is one of several Alabama players the team may be considering in this draft. The others are Mike Johnson G, Javier Arenas and Kareem Jackson CBs, and Rolando McClain ILB.
Cody has lost a lot of weight lately in his attempt to get into shape and persuade teams that he is committed to football and what it takes at the next level. The question is, will he last to round two?
Texas receiver and return man Jordan Shipley was second (he received votes in multiple rounds). Brandon Spikes, Jerry Hughes, and Marty Gilyard also received consideration.
Round 3 (pick 79): Brandon Ghee (6’, 192lbs), CB, Wake Forest
Ghee narrowly beat out John Jerry and Jacoby Ford.
Ghee ran the 40-yard dash at the Combine in a blazing 4.37 seconds. He has great cover skills but struggles at times with smaller, quicker receivers. If coaches can get him to go for the ball rather than for the big hit, he could be a great addition.
Hmm, who does that sound like?
Round 4 (pick 113): Myron Rolle (6’2”, 215lbs), S, Florida State
The Rhodes Scholar is very popular among 49er fans, he may even be more popular than Taylor Mays was a few weeks ago. Rolle hasn’t played college football for a year as he took last year off to study in Oxford, England. We will see what rust may need to be knocked off on April 7, when he works out for teams at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida.
Brandon “The Man” Carter, the intense guard from Texas Tech also received some very strong support. Personally, I say grab him here before the Oakland Raiders do. Rolle could still be available in the fifth.
Round 5 (pick 145): Denario Alexander (6’5”, 215lbs), WR, Missouri or
Brandon Lang (6’4”, 266lbs), DE, Troy
Denario Alexander led the nation in receiving yards last year, but doesn’t have the fleetest of feet. With his height, he should be able to take advantage of some the shorter corner backs in the league if he can get open against press coverage.
What scares me about Alexander is that he has been on crutches since the Senior Bowl. He injured his knee in practice and was not able to participate in the Combine or workout in any Pro Days. Normally this wouldn’t be a huge concern, but Alexander is one year removed from his third knee operation.
Brandon Lang hails from Troy, a school that produced Osi Umenyiora and Demarcus Ware.
On March 16, Lang impressed scouts with his combination of quickness, athleticism, and size. Gil Brandt of NFL.com had this to say,
“It is rare players at that size demonstrate such quickness”.
This would be a huge value in round five.
Round 6 (182) Trindon Holiday (5”5’, 166lbs), WR/RS, LSU
One of the fastest men on the planet, and he plays football. The return game is immediately upgraded with this speed burner.
Round 6 (pick 206-compensatory) LeGarrette Blount (6’1”, 241), RB, Oregon
Blount actually was the winner of round seven, but with a compensatory pick awarded, why not grab him here? The consensus seems to be that Mike Singletary can keep Blount’s behavior in check. If that is the case, taking a chance on the extremely talented Blount would make sense here low risk, high reward.
Round 7 (pick 224) O’Brien Schofield (6’2”, 221lbs), OLB, Wisconsin
O’Brien Schofield is another player recovering from a knee injury sustained at Senior Bowl practice. But the late rounds are where you take chances on players like this. Schofield has a huge upside and if he is still here we should grab him. With teams like Green Bay snooping around and checking out his rehab, we might be able to grab him in round six and still get Blount here.
Clifton Geathers the defensive end from South Carolina also received votes for rounds six and seven.
