Here is how the Second Round may evolve:
Round 2 Pick 1: New England - Fills their 34 DE need with Da'Quan Bowers
Round 2 Pick 2: Buffalo - Mallett vs. Sherrod decision? OT needs filled with Derek Sherrod
Round 2 Pick 3: Cincinnati - Ryan Mallett is selected to solve the Bengals QB puzzle
Round 2 Pick 9: Washington - QB Colin Kaepernick is taken here just a bit too early
Round 2 Pick 10: Houston - 34 OLB Akeem Ayers fills a big need
Round 2 Pick 13: San Francisco 49ers: Who will they pick here?
CB Ras-I Dowling versus DE/DT Ballard?
Or will they choose safety Rahim Moore? How about 34 OLB in Brooks Reed?
34 DE Aldon Smith serves the pass-rush need somewhat, so do you take a 34 OLB?
If Detroit did not grab Dowling...he makes a great choice for the 49ers.
CB Ras-I Dowling was the number one cornerback before Patrick Peterson came into vogue. Ras-I Dowling was injured for most of the season and that is why Peterson became the fair-haired child. Dowling has recovered from his injuries and is underrated. Some feel he can play safety as well.
The choice will be: CB Ras-I Dowling, but 49ers fans will like this choice about as much as they liked DE Aldon Smith. But both are solid A- picks.
