San Francisco 49ers: 7 Solid Choices for Their 2011 NFL Draft 1st Round Pick

The San Francisco 49ers have the seventh overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft this April. Red-and-gold fans everywhere have already voiced opinions on how they should spend this selection, but no one knows for sure who will be available or how they will pick.

Luckily, there is plenty of talent at the top of the draft to make a number of players (at positions of need)  worthy selections.

Naturally, given the need for a franchise passer, plenty of fans are clamoring for the 49ers first selection to be a top-ranked quarterback. Drafting a passer who will sit on the bench for a year or so while paying him top-ten money, however, isn't the most thought-out move.

The top of the 2010 draft is littered with talent to help the 49ers in another area in which they have severely lacked over the last decade: pass defense.

Of these top seven players that can help the 49ers pass defense, at least one is guaranteed to be available when the seventh pick is on the clock.
