Here is my seven-round prediction for the San Francisco 49ers' draft.
No, I do not have any confidence I'm getting this correct. But I am going to project a trade since I don't believe they're going to keep all 11 picks. I think I will at least be in the right range of the total number of picks they're going to make. Here we go:
Trade: I project the 49ers sending three of their picks (No. 30, No. 56 and No. 61) to the Tennessee Titans for the 11th overall pick in the first round.
Summary: The 49ers have a lot of options as far as moving up. But there have been strong indications they want to go big for a top receiver. LSU's Odell Beckham would qualify as a big hit. The cost is expensive, but it could be worth it for the 49ers, who want an instant impact player. Pierre Desir and Marcus Roberson would give a much-needed boost at cornerback. They both could potentially contribute early. Stork could be a nice prospect to snare in the third round. Thomas has the look of a quarterback Jim Harbaugh would like to develop. The last four players on the board are all players the 49ers have shown interest in during the draft process.
