SAN FRAN­CISCO 49ERS

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NFC WEST -

Grade: C+

Mike McGlinchey is a steady, polished prospect who lacks the typ­i­cal elite traits of a ninth over­all pick, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing some of the tal­ent that was on the board. Pet­tis gar­ners many split opin­ions within the scout­ing com­mu­nity and might prove to be a play­maker on of­fense and spe­cial teams — but again, it seemed un­nec­es­sary to trade up to grab him. Warner was a solid pick with the un­cer­tain fu­ture of Reuben Foster.

Best pick

Fred Warner is built like a big safety and showed off his ath­leti­cism with a 4.64 40 and 38.5-inch ver­ti­cal among his im­pres­sive work­out num­bers at the scout­ing com­bine. He at­tacks the run and can play anywhere along the sec­ond level.

Up­side pick

Tar­var­ius Moore is a quin­tes­sen­tial late riser who brings min­i­mal risk/high up­side as a third-round pick. He is a ter­rific ath­lete who could be a starter.
