2012 49ers NFL Draft preview -- areas of need
Matt Maiocco is aided by National Football Post's Wes Bunting to run through the 49ers needs and potential options in the draft.
-- that may have come from CSN Bay Area dot com this is Wes bunting from national football post and let's look at the 49ers draft. Quite a few needs I mean obviously they had a very good season that is all teams that this time a year they're going to be looking at some spots. Wide receiver cornerback. -- guard running back what are your feeling out of those positions and how they would stack up for a team like the 49ers that need help those spots I think as a whole if you gonna look at some of the. -- in this year's crop those -- will ultimately be the deepest they were helped out especially at corner with some good underclassmen and some good small school prospects. Allowing a lot of these seniors from the major programs to slide down a bit and get some good value in that second third round race -- -- -- from Nebraska are from Virginia upon that to Norfolk Nebraska. Or crop -- good as we've seen in years and -- a weaker offensive tackle spot I think when the a lot of -- jump ball in the plant's overall it's not too many good offensive linemen after the -- four corners of the number thirty pick in the draft so there's a lot of flexibility. Ability with a lot of different positions that they could take. How do you see that shaking out like what what spot of those that we need you could have them the most talent available there with the 49ers to round pick at number thirty. I think ultimately look at the priority of the position and with cornerback being able to shut down these talented receivers and the wide receiver as a whole I think that's where these guys are gonna come off the board first so if you look at -- overall value. I think you can -- on Gordon running back because we've seen so many talented running backs. Fall in the draft I think it could get a good value in the mid rounds seem to power but you -- talented wide receiver quarterback ultimately those guys come off the board first especially the guys here to come on -- -- fast. Any cornerback the foreigners scouted a player last year Chris -- over. News didn't start but was there number three quarterback. Is there a possibility at number thirty that the Koreans could did a year when starting quarterback. I think it's possible especially depending on who ends up falling so if it's indoors Jenkins the former Florida transfer went to north Alabama you would be there stepping -- -- it would be a good fit you some physical kid he can play a lot of zone coverage he's got the ability to open run he needs to I think he could end up in there the same time if these guys what's that this week at the common run that fast. Typically very good corners that size and speed they don't list that there.
