Kiper mock 1.0 reaction: 49ers

In his first mock draft Insider of the year, Mel Kiper Jr. has the San Francisco 49ers taking LSU receiver Odell Beckham Jr. with the 30th pick.

I can see that happening. The 49ers need a receiver and Beckman (6-foot, 194 pounds) is a first-round talent. The All-America underclassman had 59 catches in 2013.

The 49ers need youth at wide receiver and it will be one of the first positions they will consider, along with cornerback. If the 49ers stay at the bottom of the first round, a talent like Beckham would be a good get.
