Could the Niners be thinking offensive tackle with their 10th pick in the April 25th draft? That’s the thought of today’s Santa Rosa Press Democrat, that gives their opinion that it’s a position that the Niners will not only eye, but will take with that 10th pick:
It’s March 4, and if I were a betting man I’d say the 49ers want to select an offensive tackle with the No. 10 overall pick and stick him at right tackle next season. Jason Smith (Baylor) and Eugene Monroe (Virginia) will likely be chosen early in the draft. However, Andre Smith (Alabama) and Michael Oher (Mississippi) are possibilities to be remaining on the draft board when it’s the 49ers’ turn to select.
