49ers Draft Joe Cohen at 135

With their last pick in the 4th round, No. 135 overall, the 49ers select DT Joe Cohen out of Florida.

Cohen (6-4½, 313; 5.10) was a backup to Marcus Thomas, and when Thomas was suspended, Cohen became a starter. People think his best position in the NFL will be defensive end, but he has enough strength to play tackle.

  1. Does anybody know when we pick next bacause I know we aint got a 6th but I think 2 sevens and I don’t know about the 5th round

  2. nice

  3. We pick #10 in the 5th and #12 in the 6th and that’s it. No 7th.

  4. we pick 147 in 5th coming up in about 6 picks

  5. I thought there was no sixth and had 2 sevenths did they trade up or something

  6. I think all we need now is a backup for Gore and Robinson. Great draft!! Manusky will have plenty of talent to turn our D around from 26th to top 5!!!!

  7. We have pick 147 and pick 186. That is it. No 7th rounder.

  8. Don’t you think we could grab a qb did matt moore get selected he’s from oregon state

  9. No, we had 1,2,3,3,4,4,4,4,5,6. We lost a 4th for Darrell Jackson. Also gave up a 4th and next year’s 1st to get move into the bottom of the 1st and then got a 4th back and a 1st next year for our 2nd. So we’ll end up 1,1,3,3,4,4,4,5,6.

  10. According to old scout.com info, this guy was highly recruited as a stud power running FB and a defensive lineman in High School. Played D-Line for Gators. It’s a huge reach but with his size, I wonder if this guy, being a former FB could handle goal line carries and play defense too?

  11. i definately think we should address CB before we address 3rd sting RB

  12. A little info….
    Strongside defensive end
    Palm Bay (FL)

    Ht: 6-foot-2
    Wt: 240 lbs
    Forty: 4.47 secs
    Bench max: 405 pounds
    Squat max: 470 pounds
    Vertical: 32 inches
    GPA: 2.7
    Class: 2003 (High School)

  13. He’s actually up to 275 lbs. That number is wrong in my last post.

  14. Are we going to play this guy as a OLB or D-line?

  15. Ohhhh OK….I was just wondering. Thank you.

  16. we miles well take deshawnn wynn from florida runningback….hes just like gore….2 gores lol

  17. i cannot belive david irons is stikll on board…why is he still on board????someone be smart and take this guy

  18. Even more updated info….

    Joe Cohen
    Height: 6-21/2 | Weight: 315 | 40-Time: 5.11

    Official Bio

    Very good athlete…Has nice size and bulk…Versatile…Mobile with good range…A great motor…Quick and explosive…Hard worker with top-notch intangibles…He is developing physically and getting bigger…Still improving and has some potential.

    He needs to get stronger…Awareness and instincts are sub par…A ‘tweener who may not have a true pro position…Has some health and durability concerns…Was not very productive…Isn’t stout versus the run…Should be a better pass rusher.

    A top recruit coming out of high school who actually began his college career on offense as an H-back…Started at defensive end in 2004 and 2005 before moving inside to tackle as a senior…Could be an interesting big school sleeper if his hips check out with team doctors…Possible candidate for a 3-4 scheme?…Underrated.

  28. OHHHHH I don’t like that pick….Tarrell BRown….this guy has issues.

  29. Tarell Brown CB from Texas

  30. ok ok i can live with tarrell brown…i wonder who will take irons tho

  31. Well, we got a corner, but one with a lot of baggage.

  32. Allison nice but I don’t like the kid irons as much but whatever

  33. yea i wanted irons more but ok

  34. did we just draft a poor character guy…

  35. I would have taken Irons as well. He is a class guy with a lot of talent.

  36. nolan will straighten tarrell out

  37. Brown is REALLY talented, but he DOES HAVE ISSUES and DID get in trouble when he was with Texas.

  38. He is only 5’10”, I though Nolan wanted big corners.

  39. […] and Jay Moore, a defensive end with potential. Continuing on with the emphasis on defense, the next three picks were for defensive backups, none particularly exciting but despite last year’s stats, […]
