Kiper Mock Draft 1.0: Niners

1/15/2014

The San Francisco 49ers will draft in the 29-32 range in the first round.

Even though they are drafting at the end of the first round, they still have potential to be draft power brokers. The 49ers will have, at least, 13 draft picks.

This is a loaded team. There is no way more than five or six rookies will make this team. That's why it is logical the 49ers -- who moved from No. 31 to No. 18 last year to take safety Eric Reid -- will try to move up in the draft.

They most need a receiver or a cornerback. The big prize would be Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins. But he might require a trade into the top 10. But I wouldn't put it past San Francisco.
