Video: McShay sends CB to 49ers
By Mike Sando
Todd McShay's latest mock draft sent Blaine Gabbert to Arizona with the fifth overall choice.
The college scouting director from Scouts Inc. is back in this video with a look at the sixth through 10th overall choices. He's got LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson heading to the San Francisco 49ers at No. 7, a scenario he calls a steal for the 49ers.
Cornerback is indeed a primary need for the 49ers, so drafting Peterson would be a good thing for them if McShay is right when he calls Peterson the best player in the draft, regardless of position.
McShay also has Alabama receiver Julio Jones coming off the board in the top 10, a scenario that could affect the St. Louis Rams' options at No. 14.
