Path to the Draft: Big-12 Week

Posted by Taylor Price on March 28, 2011 – 8:36 AM



Week four of our pre-draft coverage shifts its focus from the ACC to the Big-12. All week long we’ll take a closer look at another one of the nation’s premiere conferences and its best talent.

Starting off, we’ll examine Missouri junior quarterback Blaine Gabbert and his chances of being the No. 1 overall pick. After Gabbert, there’s plenty of talent to explore from a number of schools in the conference (including Danville native and Nebraska running back Roy Helu Jr. pictured above).

Gabbert’s squad went 10-3 last season, but did not win the conference crown. That honor went to the University of Oklahoma, who bested Nebraska 23-20 in the Big-12 Championship game.

In keeping with our previous posts, which Big-12 talent would you like to see in a 49ers uniform next season? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

    Not a sexy pick, but Alex Henery, the kicker from Nebraska, is unbelievable and would set us up at an unheralded but critical position as our current kicker edges toward old age.

    Any talent from the Lonestar State!!! UT has alot of raw talent that just needs to be coached right. The majority of the Big 12 players are native Texans, we were born to play football so take a pick in the late rounds!

    Not Prince! I guess no one has watched the tape of Blackmon eating him for lunch!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Who didnt Blackmon eat for lunch? Prince would be a shut down corner with nfl training, watch his whole body of work, not just one game

    1. Cam Newton or Patrick Peterson
    2. Jake Locker or Brandon Harris

    Dont think anyone hasnt taken a bite out of Peterson, I think The Prince will do just fine, some of the top corners in the NFL get beat every now and then!

  12. By HW1 on Mar 28, 2011 | Reply

    1. The Prince
    2.Dalton
    3.Chris Carter
    add another corner,NT,receiver and re-sign Alex and lets get this ship moving!

    a reciever who goes after the ball and actually catch it. fast safties too..

    Peterson is a play maker! alot better than Prince. If Peterson doesnt land in our laps we need to go with Von Miller. We also need to get a solid Nose Tackle that can come in and start right away. Then we can choose a Qb. (Kaepernick, Mallet, Ponder) Then we can move up and get a deep threat WR. I love Titus Young and Toliver!

    Remember 2/3 of the Earth is covered by water and the other 1/3 is covered by Prime! (Deon Sanders) thats Peterson!

    Aaron Williams is the best corner in the draft. He completely shut down Julio Jones better than Peterson did. And he played Blackmon way better than Prince.

    1.Aaron Williams
    2.Andy Dalton/ Ryan Mallett (best pure QB in the draft hands down)
    3.Sam Acho
    4.Brooks Reed
    4.Noel Devine
    4.Chykie Brown
    5.Sione Fua
    6.Kendric Burney
    6.Jerrod Johnson
    7.

    The only thing wrong with A Smith is his confidence, which is everything to a QB, can’t have a QB running scared in and out of the pocket! Can’t draft Locker cause he ran scared at Washington,and Ponder ran scared at FSU,if both of them ran scared in college what do you think they will do in the PROs? I say Draft Dalton or Kapernick, re-sign Alex,build on his confidence, i tell u this guys confidence could be SHOT!
    I hope not cause I Love Alex but He’s got to get it together soon!

    And you cannot say that Peterson is alot better then Prince! there’s not that much seperation! Peterson statue projects him in becoming a safety while Prince will still be a CB, and Peterson is more like Lott rather then Deon, which is a good thing but wouldnt cry if Peterson is gone and Prince is there! I would say Take Him! and he would probably be the better CB, Quinn wouldnt be a bad option, i was sick of seeing QBs having all day in the pocket against our defence! no pressure on the QB = many losses

  22. By HW1 on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    Also no pressure on the QB, i dont care how good the CB may be, he can only cover for so long!

  23. By HW1 on Mar 29, 2011 | Reply

    And please dont bring in kevin kolb, we have a better chance in retaining Smith!
    only reason kolb had success against us is because He had all dam day!

    Watch film before you claim someone is better just because you seen it or read it on ESPN. I have watched Peterson, Prince, and Williams for the last 3 years. And Williams is the most consistent playmaker against big time competition. He has played against Crabtree, Bryant, Blackmon, Julio Jones, and practiced against Shipley. Not one receiver on that list I named ate his lunch. Not one and all either is or will be in the NFL. Aaron Williams should be our 1st pick. The guy just ran a 4.35 on his pro day, he’s over 200 pounds, over 6′, and he will make plays. Any one who says to draft Newton, Quinn, or Prince obviously have not watched much college football before this year.

    Aaron Williams? Oh yeah i like that pick also! in the second round! on some boards he’s only ranked#5, must be a Longhorn fan! we already have Tarell Brown! and Williams ran a 4.44 not 4.35 at His pro day! would be a good pick but not in the first! Trust Me! lol you are very funny!

    I agree we should try and get Peterson. We can trade up swap picks with denver and giving them our 3rd round pick. Or we just move down to #17 Swap with N.E our # 7 for there #17 and # 33 securing a QB with that pick.

    We could pick up J.J. Watt or Mad Marvin Austin with the !7th pick.
