I decided to join the Mock Draft party on CSR. This is one of the years where no one really knows who is going where and when, so this, along with most other mocks, will be completely inaccurate.
Round 1: Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
While Williams could be considered a reach here at 14, I honestly don't like any other prospect enough to take that prospect where he is projected to go. Sheldon Richardson is mocked here often, but I see him as just a younger version of Dwan Edwards in that he is decent at rushing the passer, but disappears in running plays. Williams fills a glaring need at NT, where are current players at the position are Frank Kearse, Sione Fua, and Collin Cole. If you're like me, you just cringed when you read those three names.
Round 2: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
The 2013 Draft is deep at the wide receiver position. Several other names could be available here such as Justin Hunter, Terrence Williams, and Deandre Hopkins, but I see Patton as potentially being the best receiver in the draft. Patton would come in and be the third receiver immediately, and possibly even challenge Brandon LaFell for the number two spot on the depth chart. Currently, our options for the third receiver are Pilares, Gettis, Ginn, Adams, and Edwards. Pilares, Gettis, and Adams all have potential, but I don't see them being ready to fill this role.
Round 4: David Quessenberry, OG, San Jose State
Currently, our right guard situation is abysmal. Geoff Hangartner was atrocious last season, and we had no depth behind him. While Quessenberry most likely wouldn't start immediately, he would be a good developmental prospect who could start by his second year. Some people want Mathieu in this spot, but considering the fact that we have signed three nickel corners this offseason, I don't see it happening.
Round 5: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Marcus Lattimore was a star at South Carolina, but he could not stay healthy. His last two seasons there both ended in injuries. He would be a risk here, but why not take a risk in the fifth round. Lattimore would give us depth behind Williams and Stewart, and possibly make us feel better about letting one of them go.
Round 6: William Gholston, DE, Michigan State
William Gholston would probably go higher in the third or fourth round of the draft if it weren't for some character issues. Gholston showed flashes of potential in his time at Michigan State, recording 4.5 sacks and 13 tackles for loss in 2012, but will take time to develop. He needs to improve is pass rush moves and rely on solely strength
