2012 NFL Mock Draft: SF Selects Jerel Worthy (Michigan State) at No. 7
Jerel Worthy is though by many other 2012 NFL mock drafts to be an easy top five pick. I think Worthy is a great player, but not quite top five.
He is an absolute animal at defensive tackle. He is the type of player that demands the attention of an entire offensive line because he can be so dominant.
Last season he only recorded 40 tackles and four sacks, but those statistics are misleading. Worthy makes everyone on his team better because he needs to be double teamed just about every play. He creates opportunities for others.
The 49ers always tend to take risky picks, but defensive tackles are usually some of the safest bets. I feel it is time for San Francisco to make a safe move for a change and take Worthy seventh overall.
Their defense is already loaded with talent at linebacker and defensive back, a good defensive tackle could get them over the hump.
