The San Francisco 49ers have no pressing needs in the 2012 NFL Draft. Who should they try taking with one of the last picks in the first round?
Well, Jim Harbaugh likes tight ends. Jim Harbaugh came to the 49ers via Stanford. A Stanford tight end appears to be available in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Seems like all the stars are aligning for this partnership to happen.
Don Banks of Sports Illustrated files his latest mock draft, and he has Coby Fleener ending up in San Francisco.
Just playing a bit of a hunch here, but why not give Jim Harbaugh his old Cardinal tight end? With Vernon Davis and Fleener, San Francisco could be fully engaged in the NFL's two-tight end craze, and Alex Smith's receiving weapons will have gotten a major upgrade this offseason.
