The San Francisco 49ers have been one of the busiest teams in free agency this offseason, but can also make some solid improvements to their squad in the 2012 NFL draft as well, with a number of talented youngsters on their radar already.
SB Nation's own Brad Wells over at Mocking the Draft has recently released his lastest version, and has the 49ers trading up to Pittsburgh Steelers' No. 24 overall pick this year to nab offensive lineman Cordy Glenn out of Georgia:
Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers send their No. 30 pick and their second rounder this year (61st overall) to move up seven spots in an effort to shore up a big need position along their offensive line. One could argue that this team, and not the Patriots, was the second best club in pro football last year. Adding Glenn provides stability and versatility along the o-line.
The loss of Adam Snyder will certainly sting a bit, but picking up a guy like Glenn could help ease the pain, joining a young, talented O-line in San Francisco already. Alex Smith likely would not argue with this selection as their first round pick.
