Maiocco: Draft Guessing
Here is Matt Maiocco’s percentage on what the 49ers might do with the number 11 pick.
Standing pat at No. 11: 79 percent
Trading up: 12 percent
Trading back: 9 percent
And the 49ers’ first selection in the 2007 draft will be –
DE Adam Carriker 23 percent (Has great size and seems to be ideal fit for a 3-4 defense).
S LaRon Landry 19 percent (He’s better than his brother, who was an all-rookie selection at the same position for the Ravens).
LB Patrick Willis 12 percent (Would bring the kind of speed the 49ers currently lack at this spot).
WR Ted Ginn 7 percent (Fantastic speed but does not have the kind of physique the 49ers are seeking).
DT Alan Branch 6 percent (The 49ers might be drooling over him, but they’d probably have to trade up to have any shot).
DT Amobi Okoye 6 percent (Like Anthony Adams, is probably better-suited to play in a 4-3).
DE Jamal Anderson 5 percent (Has a chance to be a hybrid DE/OLB, but likely will already be chosen).
OT Levi Brown 5 percent (He’s the second-best offensive lineman in the draft and would certainly be tempting if he makes it this far).
WR Dwayne Bowe 4 percent (He’s a big target, but he would most likely end up with 49ers only if team trades back).
CB Darrelle Revis 4 percent (He becomes more tempting at No. 11 if 49ers don’t land a corner in free agency).
DE Gaines Adams 2 percent (The best D-lineman in the draft will probably be long gone).
CB Leon Hall 2 percent (See Revis).
CB Daymeion Hughes 2 percent (See Revis and Hall).
WR Dwayne Jarrett .01 percent (I only put him in here because people might have thought I forgot about him; there are questions whether he can get separation at the next level).
Other: 2.99 percent (Just covering my butt for the outside possibility the 49ers might surprise me and draft someone like Reggie Nelson or pool together all their picks to get Calvin Johnson).
