    Third Overall: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State - San Francisco 49ers

    The 49ers have a hole at quarterback after Alex Smith signed a contract with the New York Jets, but it seems Harbaugh and company are comfortable with giving the ball to Colin Kaepernick seeing as he's the only quarterback listed on the roster right now.

    The 49ers pretty much gave up their entire draft for Justin Blackmon. Don't get me wrong he's the number one receiver in this class, a two-time Biletnikoff Award winner but the bounty they gave up is what we would value a franchise signal caller not someone who only gets the ball when the quarterback is able to get it to him.

    I'm fully expecting more of the same from last year where we saw the Niners move the ball on the ground, and have their quarterback manage the game more than naught. However Blackmon is a team guy and ultra competitive and will help in the locker room and maybe open up some opportunities for Crabtree on the opposite side. Value wise, I'm not feeling it for the amount of picks knowing how deep the Wide receiving class is. However Harbaugh is probably going to argue this one with me because the 49ers will have an actual receiving crop reminiscent of the days you had John Taylor and Jerry Rice, and I'm sure the coach likes the old school flavour.

    Peter Kiper rating: B

    Peter Kiper's Soundtrack to the draft equivalent:
    Whoomp There It Is - Tag Team

    "Upside down and inside out
    I'm about to show all you folks
    What's it's all about
    Now it's time to get on the mic
    And make this party hype
    I'm talking it back to the old school
    'Cause I'm an old fool who's so cool"
    Plenty of serviceable QBs left in the draft...

She's kinda cute as long as she doesn't speak.

    I think it's a good pick. Blackmon is a stud. Has a lot of Andre Johnson in him IMO.

    And by the way, before anyone can complain tomorrow about me taking too long to make my pick, I live in California so I'm not going to be up most likely when I get on the clock. I'm setting my alarm for 8 though so I can wake up to make my pick (or look at potential trades) so no one gets their panties in too much of a bunch. Don't expect a pick before 11am EST though.

    EDIT: Also, I'm thinking the guy I want is going to be picked at 4 so if anyone is interested in moving up to 5 to secure, what I'd expect will be the best player available at a very important position, PM me offers. I'm not accepting anything less than what the value chart says though.

    Yep. Going to be interesting to see this unfold. Questions of value will appear I believe.

    I'll tell you right now, some people can't even be happy with what they've got. Sure they couldn't procure the first overall pick early in the offseason, dumped a couple of young guys that looked like they were going to be studs and replace them at their position with solid, safe players but I guess they prefer to have a solid player at corner and not a playmaker.

    Fourth Overall: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU - Denver Broncos

    Last year the Broncos defence had a resurgence of dominance, but during his offseason they let go of a couple of young playmakers, notably Von Miller and Chris Harris. However they did address those positions and made them solid again, just not spectacular with their replacements. They added Eric Wright to start opposite Champ Bailey, as I said before Wright is one of the lower ranked corners so for the time being he makes a good stop gap solution.

    It only made sense that the Broncos select the best corner back in the draft, even if he's no Patrick Peterson. He'll be good in man and zone. He can be pretty physical and can maintain contact with receivers his covering.

    Champ is eventually going to have to retire, and Claiborne should be able to grow into the role of number one corner. Landing a top prospect like this you would think the Broncos would be happy, but from what has gone around, they were trying desperately to get out of this spot. I could think of worst things, I really don't know how he was torn here.

    Peter Kiper rating: A

    Peter Kiper's Soundtrack to the draft equivalent:
    Torn - Natalie Imbruglia

    "And now I don't care
    I have no luck
    I don't miss it all that much
    There's just so many things
    That I can't touch I'm torn"

    I'm surprised there isn't more interest in my pick with probably the 2nd best player in the draft still sitting there. I think unless I'm offered a really good trade though I'm going to stay at 5 and make my pick.

    I highly doubt anyone is going to break the bank, and pay the price you're hoping for to get into position for any specific player because of how deep it is at so many positions.

    It's hard as hell to move out of a top five pick, man especially in this years draft. I got lucky.

    Well then, I'm fine staying put. I'll give it just a little longer to see if I get a bite then I'll make my pick.
