My system for college is rather stupid, and I honestly don't follow college ball. I wouldn't dare say I know an elite prospect from a bad one, and really go with my gut on some.
Cooks was getting a lot of praise, but honestly he would only thrive in a Saints type system. He'd never make it on a slower playing surface in the 49ers offense.
I'm positively convinced the 49ers can't draft a WR to save their life. I am very happy to trade a 4th or 5th rounder and pick up any established WR in the league instead. That way I don't have to declare bust on a 4th-7th round WR (Ronald Johnson, Kyle Williams, etc... soon to be Patton).
Stevie Johnson, Anquan Boldin, Brandon Lloyd cost us exactly a 4th round and 6th round draft pick. That's the best draft I've ever seen!
Their D line could use work if Tank/Dial aren't good enough. Their pass blocking is so bad, that they will need another stud on the Oline, and possibly a first round pick.
You can never have enough CB's, especially since it looks like Ward might not pan out. Lynch might be Brooks heir apparent, but another OLB to replace Lemonier as a young pass rusher would help.
And lastly, they will need to draft a QB. Maybe a more vanilla type QB that's a pure pocket passer, similar to Kirk Cousins after they took RG3.
Not sure what's strong in this draft class... but that's important in getting quality players.
