49 in 49: SEC Week

Posted by Taylor Price on March 5, 2012 – 11:30 AM

It’s a tradition unlike any other – that being – 49ers.com’s annual pre-draft coverage of the top NFL prospects.

This year, we’re switching up our coverage by breaking down 49 players from all over the country, some of which could become one of the 49ers seven draft picks in the 2012 NFL Draft.

First up, we’ll breakdown seven of the best players hailing out of the Southeastern Conference.

It was a competitive season once again in the SEC. Case in point: two of the most talked about games from the 2011 college football season involved a pair of the conference’s perennial powers: Alabama and LSU.

After a low-scoring regular season affair that saw the Tigers narrowly escape Tuscaloosa with a 6-3 road victory, the Crimson Tide got their revenge by beating LSU in the BCS National Championship game.

Other than those top teams, the conference is littered with talent as evidenced by the San Francisco 49ers current roster. As of March 5, the 49ers have nine players on the roster who played collegiately in the SEC. Last year, the 49ers selected cornerback Chris Culliver out of South Carolina in the third round of the draft.

So which player from the SEC is primed to be chosen by the 49ers? Let the speculation begin as we profile some of the conference’s top talent this week in our “49 in 49” series.

Which SEC player would you like to see in a 49ers uniform? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

    The player that would look good in a 49ers uniform is trent richardson, but i doubt we will take a RB early and he won’t fall to #30.

    Rueben Randle.

    I would like to see the running back from alabama Kent Richardson, but Im sure he will be gone by the time we get to choose. The kid from Vtec is good too, I wouldnt mind seeing him in a 49ers uniform. The corner from LSU, we could use him as a punt and kick returner.

    EG49er4LIFE-you must be a Pac 12 fan or just clueless about college football. First of all the running back from Bama is TRENT not Kent and the corner for LSU that is a punt/kick returner is not even in this year’s draft!!! He was a Sophomore and has to play his Junior season, NCAA rule, this next season.
    I agree with you Trent-Rueben Randle would be a great draft.
    Geaux Niners and Tigers!!!!!!

    Also, I sure hope it is NOT Jordan Jefferson!!!!!!! I am a LSU grad and fan and know he is TERRIBLE!!!!! He would end up in the Jamarcus Russell category!!! Thats the Oakland way, not the Niner way.

    AD my mistake, pump your brakes a bit….I ment Trent Richardson…And as far as being clueless about college football, not so much…The guy I was talking about from LSU is the Corner Back name Morris Claiborne. He would be a good return man, plus they could use him as an alternating corner…And I am a PAC 12 fan being from California and a HUGE USC fan…

    Some of ya’ll don’t know your collegiate conferences Baylor is in the Big 12 and V-Tech is in the ACC. As for the name screw up it happens.
    As for who I’d like to see from the SEC in a 49ers uniform next season here’s my list:
    Alshon Jeffrey – WR South Carolina
    Morris Claiborne – CB LSU
    Dre’ Kirkpatrick – CB Alabama
    Stephen Hill WR – Georgia Tech (Can’t remember if they’re in the ACC or SEC because they play Georgia every year)
    Brandon Boykin – CB Georgia (not sure on his name)
    Cordy Glenn – OT/OG Georgia
    Stephon Gilmore – CB South Carolina

    Yeah i’m not too knowledgable on Collegiate Football. Cali born and raised.

    Even if the Niners snag a top WR in the free agent market… Mr. Hill or Mr. Jefferey will still make it to the stage hoisting the Niner Jersey in the first round.
    Our defense is legit, overpowered, lol. Balke is in stride to balance out the disparity between it and our offense. More perimeter weapons = more points = less stress on the D. = = = CHAMPIONSHIP!
    Snag Wallace and trade up!

    i definately think the 49ers should pick up Alshon Jeffrey and grab Vincent Jackson from FA. those would be two BIG pick ups for the 49ers its what they need which is two big elite recievers.

    It depends on what the Niners do with Ted Ginn Jr. Should he go somewhere else or try to develope more as a receiver, I say the Niners take WR Joe Adams out of Arkansas. This guy was INCREDIBLE in the return game most of his career. Not to mention his skill as a receiver. He can be a steal with a 3rd or 4th round pick.

    There are at least two QBs that would be better from day one in this draft vs. Alex Smith. Unfortunately since that isn’t attainable, I would look at D first round since there are some potential mid round gems at WR. Answer would be Morris Claiborne.

    hey if they were saling tickts to a raff for two peaple to be in that room on draft day and the money went to a niner charity, That would something

    I would love to see the Niners draft Kellen More from Boise State.

    Go niners

    Claiborne wont be available…but would love him we need a CB…at best if we sign rodgers he has 2 years left in him…Boykin was mentioned earlier and he looks really good too….But the simple fact is that our biggest need is WR…These big Free agent receivrs are not going to want to come here as long as Smith is behind center because they wont get their bonuses and they wont get their TD’s or Receptions…so therefore we need to draft someone like Alshon jeffrey!!! we neeed a wideout ASAPP and we need a healthy Morgan back along with CRAB!!!

    Please, Please, Please….get me a HOG! Adams…He is so awsome! We fans who have roots in the SEC, need a Hog!!
