Our 2011 pre-draft coverage shifts to familiar territory this week – the Pac-10. The 49ers Faithful are more than familiar with the conference because of its proximity and the same goes for the team’s coaching staff.
With Jim Harbaugh leaving Stanford for the 49ers, he’s easily the most informed coach in the NFL when it comes to the famous West Coast conference.
Harbaugh’s staff is also well-versed in the prominent players from the Pac-10. Both offensive and defensive coordinators Greg Roman and Vic Fangio are coming from his Cardinal staff. Other examples of familiarity include wide receivers coach Johnny Morton and tight ends coach Reggie Davis. They’re coming from the USC and Oregon State coaching staffs respectively.
The 49ers selected two Pac-10 players last season, safety Taylor Mays (USC) and wide receiver Kyle Williams (Arizona State) in the second and sixth rounds respectively. And once again, the conference features several high-profile prospects that will surely entice NFL clubs.
Which players have a chance to be selected by the 49ers?
