Niners Draft Projections


I have been mentioning several different Web sites’ draft projections for the Niners in my blogs, including those from

Well, Anthony Conty at DraftBlitz was kind enough to share his projections for every Niners’ pick in the upcoming draft (their first-round mock draft is free, but they charge a subscription to view the rest of the draft). You can view their first-round mock draft here.

Here are his most recent projections, as of Monday.

First Round (29th overall pick)
Kentwan Balmer, DT/DE-North Carolina

“The Niners have the luxury of an early second round pick and will fill their need for a Wide Receiver then. The 3-4 needs specific players and Balmer’s skills are best-suited for that alignment.”

Second Round (8th pick, 39th overall)
Andre Caldwell, WR-Florida

Third Round (7th pick, 70th overall)
Dre Moore, DT/DE-Maryland

Fourth Round (8th pick, 103rd overall)
Barry Richardson, T-Clemson

Fifth Round (7th pick, 133rd overall)
Tommy Blake, DE/OLB-TCU

Sixth Round (8th pick, 165th overall)
Jerome Felton, FB-Furman

Seventh Round (7th pick, 196th overall)
Kory Robertson, DT-Virginia Tech

Thanks again to Anthony Conty from for the info. So that is four defensive linemen, five linemen total, with seven picks. What do you guys think of these projections. Comment away.

    3 Defensive Lineman is a lot, yes, but realize that Tommy Blake would be an OLB in your system. Only 3 out of 7 there.
