BBV Community Mock Draft: With 13th pick, 49ers select ...

Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa.

Selecting for the 49ers is 'RIPShea.' He writes:

The 49ers have two draft picks in the Top 20 in this year's draft (Thanks to the Carolina Panthers). Since this is one of the deepest draft classes in recent memory, Mike Singletary and Co.can afford to take the BPA with one of those picks. It just so happens the BPA is also a position of need as well.

"We were just waiting on one or two of our overall top targets to fall to our spot. I was a little worried with the Dolphins on the clock but they went in another direction. We are ecstatic about this kid" Singletary said.

San Francisco's biggest needs are OT, secondary, and ILB. They pass on Spiller, for now, because the coaches are very high on Glen Coffee as Frank Gore's change of pace partner. Singletary took a very hard look at Sean Weatherspoon to eventually take over for Takeo Spikes and form a monster LB corps which includes Patrick Willis but Bulaga is too good to pass up.

Bryan Bulaga and Joe Staley can play both tackle spots. I feel Staley is better suited as the RT and Bulaga starts at LT. With Alex Smith and David Carr at the QB spots the 49ers can't really afford to take a question mark OT (Trent Williams - struggled at LT this year after moving from RT. Anthony Davis - motivation? Hasn't reached potential). Bryan Bulaga is an NFL-ready offensive lineman and a top-10 talent.

My take: Another player off the board who would have drawn strong consideration from me had he been available for the Giants choice at 15. An excellent pick for the 49ers, who fill a need with a player who was surprisingly still on the board and should be an offensive line anchor for a long time.
