I've broken out Scouts Inc.'s projected picks for the 49ers as the NFL draft countdown continues.

The Scouts Inc. mock sent Mississippi tackle Micheal Oher to the 49ers at No. 10 even though Steve Muench, who works for Scouts Inc., had some reservations about the choice.

The 49ers do need a tackle, but two in the first three rounds?

If the 49ers draft a receiver at No. 111, they'll buck a 15-year trend; general manager Scot McCloughan's teams haven't used a fourth-round choice on a receiver since he entered the NFL in 1994.

I sent Oher to the 49ers with the 10th overall pick in our bloggers' mock draft, but I would prefer to write that one in pencil. The 49ers figure to have options.
