Draft talk – get used to it.
It’s going to dominate this blog (and 49ers.com) for the next few months as we lead up to the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 26.
The latest draft dialogue relating to the 49ers stems from Mel Kiper’s second mock draft of the 2012 offseason. The tenured ESPN draft analyst predicts LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle being San Francisco’s choice with the 30th overall selection in the first round.
More 49ers headlines and news on Randle, including Kiper’s thoughts on the 6-foot-4, 209-pound receiver, can be found after the jump.
Kiper’s assessment of Randle can be read online courtesy of Niners Nation. According to Kiper, Randle could be a steal. The analyst believes the 6-foot-4 wideout is being overlooked. Kiper thinks Randle could have been more productive and desired by NFL clubs if he played in a more dynamic passing attack.
As for the current 49ers squad, CSN Bay Area insider Matt Maiocco writes that safety Dashon Goldson is the team’s top franchise tag candidate. If the 49ers don’t reach a long-term contract with the Pro Bowl safety before March 5, the team can exercise its right to use a franchise tag on Goldson which is expected to be $6.2 million at the safety position for one year.
For more offseason debates on how the 49ers should approach offseason decisions, a roundtable of CSN on-air personalities, including Maiocco, recently discussed offseason storylines.
