Press Democrat 49ers expert predicts LSU DE Tyson Jackson will be Niners' selection


<b>1. Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia</b>

Here?s your $40 million, and good luck with this sorry franchise.

<b>2. St. Louis Rams

Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia</b>

Have I made a mockery of this mock draft, yet?

<b>3. Kansas City Chiefs

Jason Smith, OT, Baylor</b>

A change of plans when this tackle slides to them at this spot.

<b>4. Seattle Seahawks

Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest</b>

Decided on help for defense rather than offensive playmaker.

<b>5. Cleveland Browns

B.J. Raji, DT, Boston College</b>

He?s big and talented, and if he checks out clean, he?s the pick here.

<b>6. Cincinnati Bengals

Andre Smith, OT, Alabama</b>

And he?ll be instructed to never, ever take his shirt off in public again.

<b>7. OAKLAND RAIDERS

Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech</b>

Finally, JaMarcus Russell gets somebody who can help him succeed.

<b>8. Jacksonville Jaguars

Mark Sanchez, QB, USC</b>

It might not be the Jaguars making the pick, but the QB is the call.

<b>9. Green Bay Packers

Michael Oher, OT, Virginia</b>

Blind side protected whether it?s Pack or Pats trading up.

<b>10. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU</b>

Need? No. Nice fit for 49ers? defensive scheme? Yes.

<b>11. Buffalo Bills

Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas</b>

They?ll get their offensive tackle later in the first.

<b>12. Denver Broncos

Chris Wells, RB, Ohio State</b>

Broncs nearly ran out of runners last season.

<b>13. Washington Redskins

Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri</b>

Talented wideout isn?t going to drop any further.

<b>14. New Orleans Saints

Malcolm Jenkins, DB, Ohio State</b>

Solid, solid player but might be better fit at safety.

<b>15. Houston Texans

Brian Cushing, LB, USC</b>

Building a nice, young defense to lead the way.

<b>16. San Diego Chargers

Rey Maualuga, LB, USC</b>

He?ll do in Year 1 what Patrick Willis did in S.F.

<b>17. N.Y. Jets

Josh Freeman, QB, Kansas State</b>

After first two QBs go, Jets grab him before Bucs

<b>18. Denver Broncos

Aaron Maybin, LB, Penn State</b>

All he?ll be asked to do is disturb the quarterback.

<b>19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Peria Jerry, DT, Mississippi</b>

Big man in the middle injects aging defense with youth.

<b>20. Detroit Lions

Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State</b>

Stafford?s completion percentage rises with him as target.

<b>21. Philadelphia Eagles

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia</b>

Now, Eagles won?t fall apart if Brian Westbrook is out.

<b>22. Minnesota Vikings

Percy Harvin, WR, Florida</b>

With his explosive game, he?s worth risk to Vikings.

<b>23. New England Patriots

Larry English, LB, Northern Illinois</b>

Pats have a knack for putting players in the right situations.

<b>24. Atlanta Falcons

Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois</b>

Tremendous value at a need spot this low in first

<b>25. Miami Dolphins

Darius Butler, CB, Connecticut</b>

If you make it this far, you get a prize.

<b>26. Baltimore Ravens

Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland</b>

Speedster remains in the area to help Joe Flacco.

Ziggy Hood, DT, Missouri</b>

The Colts win games when their defense isn?t soft.

<b>28. Buffalo Bills

Phil Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma</b>

Big, physical right tackle for those cold months.

<b>29. N.Y. Giants

Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina</b>

Replacement for Plaxico Burress, minus the loose waistband.

<b>30. Tennessee Titans

Robert Ayers, DE, Tennessee</b>

And the locals cheer when his name is called.

<b>31. Arizona Cardinals

Clay Matthews, LB, USC</b>

The offense is just fine, so Cards take solid defender.

<b>32. Pittsburgh Steelers

Eben Britton, OT, Arizona</b>

They have to do everything to protect their QB.
