NFL Mock Draft 2012: 49ers Take Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu In First Round

Our friends over at National Football Post have released their latest mock draft for the 2012 season, and have the San Francisco 49ers selecting wide receiver Mohamed Sanu out of Rutgers University with their first round pick, 30th overall.

NFP's Wes Bunting describes his reasonings for having the Niners select Sanu with their first round pick:

The 49ers have a glairing need at the wide receiver position and could be looking to upgrade. Sanu is a monster with good quickness for his size and a real physical dimension to his game. He offers the ability to run after the catch and can contribute inside from day one.

at 6'2" he would become the Niners largest receiver height wise, who really lacked that 'go up and get it' type of receiver after Braylon Edwards and Josh Morgan went down with injuries last season. Speedy guys like Kyle Williams and Ted Ginn are great to have, but the Niners really need a talent like Sanu on their squad to add that extra crease to their passing game along with the terrific tight ends and play makers already on the roster.

Hopefully he'll still be around on draft day when the 30th pick comes around.
