With the 7th overall pick, the Niners made the safe and smart pick in Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. The owner of a 35 Wonderlic score, Amukamara is a smart player who’s also tough and more than capable of holding his own as an NFL corner. In addition to addressing one of the team’s needs, Prince fits the hard working, high character profile Jim Harbaugh’s bringing to San Fran.
Niners’ second rounder Marvin Austin, on the other hand, doesn’t appear to be a great fit for a Harbaugh-coached squad. While an incredible talent, Austin has never consistently played up to his ability. Though many are talking him up as a potential late first round selection, his tape says third or fourth round. He’ll most likely disappoint in San Francisco and/or butt heads with his head coach.
Third round pick Sam Acho is a smart, high effort player who displayed better than anticipated athleticism at the Combine. He should fit nicely as a 3-4 outside linebacker in SF. Fourth round pick Terrell McClain lacks a perfect fit in a 3-4 defense – he’s better off as a penetrating 4-3 d-tackle – but should be a nice reserve for the Niners. Fifth round picks Kendrick Burney and Jeremy Beal are smart football players but limited athletes; of the two, Burney stands a better chance of sticking around.
Though the Niners focused primarily on defense, they managed to sprinkle in some nice late round offensive weapons. Wide receivers Jeremy Kerley and Ryan Whalen both are sure-handed slot guys who could make the squad. Running backs Graig Cooper and Stanley Havili could prove to be steals if they somehow manage to stay healthy. As a result, the team’s draft is more well-rounded than first may appear.
