Simon Clancy’s Mock Draft v.1.0 – Final
1). Cam Newton – QB – Auburn
It seems as though this is now written in the stars. I often wondered whether a conservative owner such as Jerry Richardson sign off on Newton but the Panthers need a shot in the arm and it seems only GM Marty Hurney is truly still considering that Jimmy Clausen deserves a shot. Newton’s sole season with the Tigers was phenomenal and he’s a better passer than people have given credit for. Mechanically he’s a lot further forward than Tim Tebow was at this stage a year ago and although he has some issues with his footwork that need to be sorted, he can really put down roots to begin to resurrect this franchise. Of course there is serious work to be done, but new head coach Ron Rivera can build a team around Newton. He has outstanding potential. The question is now, can he maximise that? Carolina is a good fit off the field as well; a small market which may keep the spotlight off him more than most NFL cities.
2). Marcell Dareus – DT – Alabama
I refuse to buy into this QB talk surrounding the Broncos at the very top of the draft, regardless of the work John Elway is clearly doing in auditioning players, although I’m much less sure later on. Whether Tim Tebow or Kyle Orton are the answers remain to be seen and part of me wonders whether, if a new league season began before the draft whether Tebow would get moved on draft day. For me Dareus is the best player in the draft. Super talented and a can’t miss prospect. Why? a) Heavy hands; he has the best hands in the draft and can stone a guard or tackle b) Off the ball explosion; for a guy of his size, he gets moving at a remarkable rate. And c) He constantly disengages because of a and b. If you can’t disengage then you’re dead and he does it play after play after play. You can play him as the 5 technique, the 3 or even as the 0 over the center and I think he’d excel in all three. For me Dareus makes tremendous sense for the Broncos who struggled to stop the run a year ago.
3). Von Miller – DE – Texas A+M
Part of me is sold on this pick and part of me isn’t. For me it’s a toss up between Miller and Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert. Why? Well Aaron Maybin simply hasn’t worked out and the Bills need to be able to get pressure on the likes of Mark Sanchez and Tom Brady if they’re going to start to climb the AFC East ladder once more. But Chan Gailey is a fan of mobile passers and Gabbert’s tape is full of those sorts of plays. However, drafting a passer would be tough on the enterprising and sometimes excellent Ryan Fitzpatrick and so the value of Miller makes this the better pick as he will be able to contribute from day 1 both at OLB and DE when the Bills shift to some four man fronts. He is the best pure rusher in the draft, has an explosive first three steps and can bend and dip to the passer as well as anyone.
4). Ryan Mallett – QB – Arkansas
There’s a reason Mallett has been visiting the top teams in the draft. There’s also a reason why Carolina have him as one of 8 players they’re considering for the top spot. Why? Well he’s actually just a really, really good QB and if you read what we spelt out in our Draft Winds special, you’ll discover that a lot of his off the field issues are overblown. The Bengals need help at TB and WR but with Jermaine Gresham, the steady emergence of Jerome Simpson, Andre Caldwell and Jordan Shipley, the cupboard isn’t completely bare and that’s before we’ve talked about Chad Johnson. Mallett has the talent to start early and with the arm, his ability pre snap and his will to win, this could be a good marriage. He’s spent a lot of time with the Bengals and if Carson Palmer really does mean what he says, then this is a more logical pick than the masses would imagine. The arm strength, ability before the snap and leadership are all huge plus points for a Bengals team with a lot of questions under center. Mallett has All Pro potential and is NFL ready.
5). Blaine Gabbert – QB – Missouri
The Cardinals clearly like Gabbert at the top of the draft. Rumours are that they view him as the safest of the quarterbacks. But is he the best? Well the Cardinals faithful should find out soon enough and with the offensive firepower of Fitzgerald, Breaston, Doucet, Hightower and Wells, etc., Gabbert will have weapons to work with. Bill Bidwell attended the Missouri pro day and whilst he has flaws in his game including a very ugly completion percentage on throws of more than 15 yards, he showed in his final game for the Tigers an unerring accuracy, a rocket for an arm and the potential to fit the ball into the smallest windows. He does an excellent job with his feet to redirect linebackers and safeties and he could be just the player to kick start the Cardinals in 2011. I don’t buy into the talk that he’s falling to the mid teens. Certainly not with less than 72 hours to go.
6). (from Cleveland) – Patrick Peterson – CB – LSU
Houston were a decent secondary away from a run deep into the playoffs. Whilst the front seven could use some work as they switch to a 3-4, it’s the deep patrol and especially the corners who cost the Texans dearly. After spending a first round pick last year on Alabama’s Kareem Jackson they saw him get torched up and down the field all season long. Not that it was just Jackson’s fault; Jason Allen, cut by Miami struggled and gave up a huge late completion to Braylon Edwards in the last second loss to the Jets and Bernard Pollard reverted to type. Peterson is the best press corner in the draft. There’s some stiffness in his hips and he doesn’t look quite as comfortable playing off, but when he gets up into the face of the receiver and uses his strength and his ability to run with the fastest wideouts in the game then he really shows his worth.
7). Cameron Jordan – DE – California
Denied a run at Peterson I think Jim Harbaugh will go to a player with big league pedigree and possibly the best 3-4 end in the draft in Cam Jordan who has flattered to deceive at times but turned from athlete into football player in 2010 and was outstanding in Mobile. They have issues at linebacker and Jordan won’t help there but if they take a Robert Quinn here, then they’re betting the horses on a kid who won’t have played a snap of competitive football in 18 months and who has struggled against highly ranked opposition. Plus, the Niners would be asking him to play a new position and with the lockout still in play I simply don’t see that. Harbaugh is attracted to the pedigree of Cam Jordan and he looks like he can contribute early from that DE spot.
8). JJ Watt – DE – Wisconsin
Without a QB on the board worth the 8th pick, new head coach Mike Munchak will look to improve the talent on his defense and Watt is a really safe pick here. New defensive coordinator Jerry Gray has said that he wants the Titans to be bigger at DE and although Watt can play both the 3-4 and the 4-3, they could plug him in opposite last years first round pick Derrick Morgan and be set at the position for a decade. Watt has an outstanding motor, is relentless and could be the cornerstone of that unit to build round. His ability against the run shouldn’t be overlooked either and despite some athletic limitations, he has a tremendous ability to simply be around the football on almost every play. To my mind he’s one of the safest picks in the draft and you can be sure that if he comes off the board here there will be a lot of disappointed teams from picks 9-15.
9). Jimmy Smith – CB – Colorado
The Cowboys would love to add JJ Watt here to help free up Ware and Spencer but it’s the secondary that needs real help after a torrid time in 2010. Mike Jenkins looked a shell of his former self as he gave up big play after big play and the safety play was woeful at times. In Jimmy Smith you have one of best pure press corners to come out in the past five years. He’s extremely confident, extremely physical, has great hips and is very fluid and balanced through his transition. Now he has some pretty big off the field question marks but this is Dallas. And he has some pretty big on field ones as well; he never saw a tackle he liked and he looks a different player in off. However, the Cowboys had a Hall of Famer with a very similar skill set in Deion Sanders. If Smith’s head is right then he could be a very savvy pick here for Jason Garrett and Jimmy Jones.
10). Robert Quinn – DE/OLB – North Carolina
The Redskins have a lot of needs that don’t quite fit here. They could use a passer but there’s no value here. They could use a defensive end but both 3-4 ends Watt and Jordan are off the board. They could use a NT because Ma’ake Kemoeatu struggled in 2010 and they could surely use a wide receiver. But that defense was so bad that offenses ganged up to stop Brian Orakpo knowing that if they shut him down then there wasn’t much to worry about. Quinn will give them something to worry about. As mentioned, there have been issues surrounding his ability against better teams and the fact that he hasn’t played for 18 months because of the NCAA suspension, but he is explosive off the snap and given the freedom at OLB where he’s showed the athletic ability to be able to play, this is a value pick for someone who has been talked about as potentially the #1 overall.
11). A. J. Green – WR – Georgia
The Browns are switching to a 4-3 defense and whilst they need help along that defensive line, it’s a very deep class and they could pick up real value in rounds 2 and 3 at those positions. However it’s questionable whether they could pick up a WR in the same class as Green. They drafted Colt McCoy a year ago and despite minimal help from his receivers he flashed enough to at least make you want to see a whole lot more in 2011. With Green you’re getting a player who is perhaps just a notch below the level of a Calvin Johnson when he came out of Georgia Tech. He is a terrific route runner, with excellent hands and physicality. Questions remain over his overall level of intelligence and how quickly he’ll pick up the system but there are no questions over his athletic talent and he should prove to be the second solid first round pick by Tom Heckert after last year selecting CB Joe Haden who “fell” in many eyes after question marks over his speed.
12). Aldon Smith – DE – Missouri
This to me is a terrific pick for the Vikings. Again there isn’t QB value here and the Vikings could really use some help opposite Jared Allen especially, if as expected, Ray Edwards tests the FA market once the new CBA is signed. Although they have some rotation in the wheelhouse in Brian Robison and Everson Griffen, Smith to me is one of the best pure players in the entire draft. Slowed somewhat by injury in 2010, he’s a monstrous pass rushing threat with long arms, terrific closing speed, ferocious hands and an ability to time and again press the pocket off the corner, with the ability to bend, dip and close. With many in the Viking organisation intrigued by the potential of Joe Webb, it would seem wise to look at a pass rusher here, especially as this may be 6 or 7 picks too high for Mike Pouncey.
13). Anthony Castonzo – OT – Boston College
The Lions have invested an awful lot of money in QB Matthew Stafford and he’s yet to complete an NFL season because of injury. Jim Schwartz has already done a terrific job of changing the mentality in the Motor City but those changes can only continue if Stafford is able to do the job that he was drafted #1 overall for. Many of the pieces are sliding into place and although CB Prince Amukamara would be terribly difficult to pass up on at this spot, keeping the franchise healthy is absolutely the best decision. I personally have some issues with Castonzo and believe he needs to become stronger to maximise his potential, but it’s hard to ignore his athletic ability. With Jeff Backus a free agent in 2012 and already 34 years old and RT Gosder Cherilus coming off knee surgery, Castonzo is the no brainer pick here for a franchise going in the right direction.
14). Julio Jones – WR – Alabama
Again, this to me is another no brain selection. You draft the franchise passer a season ago, he has great bookends to protect him, a 1500 yard tailback in the backfield and not a great deal else at the skill positions. Julio Jones is one of the great enigmas of the draft; doesn’t look overly fast on tape yet runs away from people, can be a very inconsistent route runner and is the best blocking wideout to have come out in many years and yet at times he gets lazy in both aspects. A phenomenal Combine showing boosted his stock and he comes from a pro style system under Nick Saban which should help him cross over very quickly under the guidance of Josh McDaniels who worked with a similar player in Denver in Brandon Marshall. These two look a marriage made in heaven.
15). (from Miami) – Prince Amukamara – CB – Nebraska
Needs must for the Buccaneers. Ronde Barber is 36 and likely entering his final season in a system that is being tweaked away from the scheme he’s been so solid in. Raheem Morris, a former secondary coach is mixing up coverage’s, playing a lot more man and zone and one on ones on the perimeter. The legal situation with former first rounder Aqib Talib is precarious to say the least and if a talent like Amukamara falls this far then the Bucs will be scrambling to get up and take him off the board. The Husker has everything you need in a top flight corner; speed, terrific hips and a good ability to see the ball in the air. He suffered an average 2010 campaign, highlighted by being taken apart by Justin Blackmon to the tune of 151 yards but this would be a terrific pick here for a team that’s closing in on the playoffs.
16). Adrian Clayborn – DE – Iowa
The Jags have been a tough read the last couple of seasons and with the selection of Tyson Aluala last year they really set the cat amongst the pigeons. However it turned out to be an inspired selection. The question is, can Gene Smith pull another rabbit from the draft hat because I would think Jack Del Rio’s job depends on it. If Clayborn had declared a year ago he was a top 10 talent for me. Not that he had an awful season in 2010, despite his production being down. He simply didn’t flash as much as he did in ’09. But what you get from him is hard work on every down, the ability to rush the passer or to play run, to play with a wide base and strong hands and rarely to get blown off the line of scrimmage. One of the best battles of the entire college football season in ’10 was watching Clayborn and Gabe Carimi go mano y mano for 60 minutes and by plugging the Iowa standout in opposite Aaron Kampman and next to Aluala and Terrence Knighton, it would give the Jags arguably the best DL in football. One name to be aware of is Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick. It would be spectacularly high for him but there are strong rumours that the Jags are seriously smitten.
17). Nick Fairley – DT – Auburn
Talk about the perfect match. A Richard Seymour clone whose stock has fallen due to some pretty serious question marks over his maturity, about the lax way in which he’s rehabbed his shoulder injury and mounting off the field concerns over the way he acts, yet can come into the best veteran locker room in the NFL and work in a system which utilises his speed and suddenness. Yes so the Pats have plenty of holes along the offensive line and with Carimi, Smith, Pouncey and Solder still on the board it would be tough to pass up one of those except that they pick again in 11 selections and they should be able to find what they need right there. This is just the sort of move that Bill Belichick lives to make.
18). Corey Liuget – DE/DT – Illinois
The Chargers need help along the front seven. They could conceivably reach here for Martez Wilson or stick and take one of the many defensive linemen still left on the board. They could opt for Cam Heyward of Ohio State or Muhammad Wilkerson of Temple but Liuget has the potential to be a dominant player in the NFL. He has experience as the 5 technique or over the nose tackle and whilst he could be a very good interior DT in a 4-3, a number of 3-4 teams think he can play that 5 technique spot. With Antonio Garay coming off an excellent year in the middle, the Chargers would love to plug Liuget in opposite Luis Castillo to take advantage of his athletic ability and his quickness.
19). Tyron Smith – OT – USC
It’s one of the worst kept secrets in New York that the Giants really covet the USC offensive tackle who many wouldn’t see falling this far. However, I think there is some buyer beware with him. The recent highly regarded USC tackle prospects have struggled somewhat and Smith can be a little too stiff and at times is slow to react to opponents moves, getting by on terrific footwork and athletic ability which is fine in college but may cause him issues in the early going in the NFL. He doesn’t look to me like an instant starter, certainly not at left tackle, but his upside is mammoth. Although the G Men have issues at center with both Shaun O’Hara and Rich Seubert recovering from surgery, the value of Smith over the need of Mike Pouncey should just about prevail.
20). Mike Pouncey – OG/C – Florida
The Dolphins are looking to get back into the second round and will do what they can to deal down. There are plenty of options; Christian Ponder is a QB who I think they will look very hard at but in Pouncey they have a guy they can plug in from day 1 at left guard next to All World left tackle Jake Long and solidify that side for a decade. Despite continued investment on the interior, the Dolphins have failed to nail down consistent play here and it would seem as though last years starting LG Richie Incognito will be pushed over to center where he played in the week 17 clash against the Bills. Pouncey is the best interior move lineman in the draft, has excellent strength at the point of attack and brings a nastiness to the Dolphins that they have been lacking. He may not be quite the player his brother was, but he’s only a notch below and for a Dolphins front office and coaching staff who know that it’s playoffs or bust, to get a starter with the 20th pick will be a real boon for them, especially if they can concentrate on playmakers with picks 2, 3 and 4.
21). (from Kansas City) – Gabe Carimi – OT – Wisconsin
It’s no secret that the Bears could use some help along the offensive line and with Smith and Pouncey coming off the board they will fear a run of tackles between now and their pick meaning they miss out. Carimi is a three year starter who has improved season upon season and although he still has some issues with elite speed off the perimeter, the way he handled Iowa’s Adrian Clayborn and Ohio State’s Cam Heyward in back to back weeks in 2010 told me all I needed to know about this kid. A lot more than just a run blocker for John Clay, his play in pass protection has improved dramatically and he’d also be an option for them inside at guard to help neutralise the threat of divisional foes such as BJ Raji and Ndamukong Suh. Mike Tice is reported to be a big fan of the former Badger and this pick makes a huge amount of sense as the Bears try and get bigger up front as well as offering Jay Cutler better protection. They got decent play out of Frank Omiyale at times and with Chris Williams performing well inside, Carimi could really top off this group.
22). Derek Sherrod – OT – Mississippi State
The Colts have a lot invested in Peyton Manning. They want to make sure that they protect their franchise passer as he drifts into the autumn of his career. The left tackle position has been something of a roller coaster since the ill fated Tony Ugoh experiment went south and in Sherrod they get one of the best pure pass protectors in the draft who scheme wise will fit perfectly with what the Colts do. Much more of a finesse pass protector, Sherrod looks to have the feet and athletic ability to keep Manning upright. The Colts are in win now mode because of the veterans close to the end of their careers or their current deals – apart from Manning there is Jeff Saturday, Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, etc. You can plug Sherrod in at left tackle from day 1 because he has the athletic ability and importantly, the intelligence to handle the Colts complex offense and his responsibilities within it.
23). Da’Quan Bowers – DE – Clemson
The Eagles have some issues on the defensive side of the ball that they’d like to address in this draft, along all three units. Andy Reid is a very shrewd player of the draft board and he is always happy to go down and collect depth. However, should a player like Bowers, who had been talked about as the potential number one pick until serious concerns over his knee were raised, fall to this area then he’d be hard pressed to pass up. The former high school defensive player of the year has looked a very high pick ever since arriving at Clemson and although he isn’t flashy or particularly explosive, he began to look like a dominant edge rusher in 2010, recording 24 TFL and 15.5 sacks. If the knee stands up to rigorous testing then this would be a tremendous value selection for the Eagles.
24). Ryan Kerrigan – DE/DT – Purdue
The Saints could go in any number of ways here. There has been talk recently of adding Mark Ingram and the former Heisman winner would be a solid selection here, but with the emergence of Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory as well as Reggie Bush, it could be that defensive unit that is beginning to look a little old that could do with some repairs. With the Saints getting much of their pass rush from Sedrick Ellis a year ago, they’ll be keen to free him up and Kerrigan possesses the all around skill set to be able to collapse the pocket and get after the QB as well as stack, shed and make tackles in the run game. A player that could come off the board earlier than 24, he’s a hard working possibility here who could really make some noise in Gregg Williams’s defense.
25). (From Seattle) – Colin Kaepernick – QB – Nevada
The mid to late twenties of this draft could be a real time for trades as teams look to close in on some of the dropping talent at every position as well as the borderline first round quarterbacks. And something is brewing in Colorado. Despite having drafted Tim Tebow – ironically in this spot a year ago – John Elway isn’t a fan. The Broncos have spent an inordinate amount of time with the strong armed Kaepernick and it’s doubtful that he lasts till the 34th pick. This may seem like an odd move given that they have Tebow and Kyle Orton but if and when the new CBA is signed, I fully expect Elway to deal the former Florida Gator star. Co Kap brings a strong arm, four years of starting ability, albeit in the pistol and terrific leadership and I suspect that Denver believes they could recoup a first rounder for Tebow. I will be surprised if Kaepernick isn’t a Bronco by the end of the weekend.
26). Nate Solder – OT – Colorado
The Ravens need help on both sides of the football. It seems as though they are in perpetual need of a cornerback, they could with some help at linebacker and a deep threat wide receiver. But Ozzie Newsome takes a very refreshing look at the draft and how to play it and it’s why the Ravens are contenders every year. Newsome tends to take the best player available or if not the best overall player then the best talent out of a group of positions that could do with a tweak. Rarely do they reach for anyone and rarely are they disappointed. Solder here represents a typical Ravens move; Michael Oher struggled at times on the left side and may kick back over to the right and Jared Gaither and the organisation seem set for a parting of the ways as they fail to see eye to eye on a number of issues ranging from where he’s played (he wants to be a LT exclusively), to his work ethic, his weight (he reportedly lost 30lbs this off-season against the organisations wishes) and how he was tendered a year ago. Solder is a developing talent, light on his feet who needs an NFL weight room but has excellent upside.
27). Jabaal Sheard – DE – Pittsburgh
The Falcons are in an interest position. The best team in the NFL during the regular season, they were one and done in the playoffs as Green Bay hit a streak of form that carried them all the way to the title. GM Thomas Dimitroff is aware that his roster doesn’t need an overhaul, merely a tweak to push it over the top although there is concern about impending free agency and the impact it might have on the OL as well as the age of John Abraham who has been treated superbly by the coaching staff, limiting his snaps. However, he is entering his 12th season and with Kroy Biermann struggling for consistency on the opposite side, it’s of paramount importance that Mike Smith’s defense can pressure opposing quarterbacks. Sheard lived in the spotlight of Greg Romeus until the fellow senior was injured during the 2009 season. Yet Sheard’s play actually improved despite teams focusing on him and he possesses a terrific wingspan that allows him to stay clean and a varied away of rush moves. His stock is improving as we close in on draft day and he makes sense here for a team wanting to increase it’s number of takedowns.
28). Danny Watkins – OG – Baylor
The Patriots are in prime position for a trade down here, possibly for a 2012 first rounder as they continue to play the draft game and win – they have 6 of the top 92 picks this year alone. However if they stay here at 28 then they really need to improve the interior of that offensive line. Matt Light is a FA and there is still the possibility that they could deal a disgruntled Logan Mankins. Dan Koppen is still a rock in the middle but Watkins could easily man either tackle or guard spot. He’s your archetypal Patriots pick; a blue collar, hard nosed protector who could step in on day 1 and do a terrific job in amongst the Dan Connelly’s and Sebastian Vollmer’s.
29). Kenrick Ellis – DT – Hampton
As it stands the Chiefs only have four defensive lineman under contract and the only NT is Antonio Taribo who has kicked around a number of practice squads. Ron Edwards is the 31 year old incumbent but also a free agent. So whilst they could easily look to improve the offensive line to help protect Matt Cassell and continue to spring Jamaal Charles, the defensive line needs serious help. Step forward Kenrick Ellis, the 340lb monster from Hampton who has terrific athletic ability for a man his size and certainly fits the Planet Theory type that so intrigues a forward thinking General Manager like Scott Pioli. He’s had some off field issues and needs some coaching but his upside potential is huge and he’s strong, has long arms and can get off blocks. He’s another whose stock is on the rise and to me is a better prospect than Baylor’s Phil Taylor.
30). Dontay Moch – DE – Nevada
The Jets are pretty much set at every position. Sure, there’s some free agent question marks surrounding the receivers and at corner and they need some creative capology if they’re going to get a roster together but what they need most of all is someone who can get to the QB with consistency because for all the good that Revis and Cromartie do in the deep patrol, if they had a pressure player off the corner then they could really do some damage. They kicked the tyres on Jason Taylor and the veteran turned in the occasional big play but the engine is gone and he’s more of a rusty field gun than a polished drone at this point. Bryan Thomas has flattered to deceive since being drafted and Calvin Pace has never had a 10 sack season since being selected in 2003. Both Thomas and Pace have some LB versatility but when Rex shifts his fronts, what they lack is a pure speed rusher off the edge and that’s exactly what Moch is. Undersized as an end in the same way that Taylor was undersized for Miami, he’s the fastest DE/OLB in the draft and could create untold problems for offenses if the Jets can move him around the way that they did at Boise where he rushed from both edges as well as from ILB. Much stronger than he appears, he’s exactly the sort of toy that Rex did so well with when at Baltimore and given the keys to a brand new Terrell Suggs.
31). Marcus Cannon – OT/G – TCU
One of the fastest rising offensive linemen in this draft is TCU’s Marcus Cannon and rumour has it that he could have made his way into the first round above prospects such as Ben Ijalana of Villanova and James Carpenter of Alabama. Cannon offers position versatility; a LT for the Horned Frogs he seems best suited to play on the right side or inside at guard where he become a real force at the point of attack. He looks soft physically and lacks the footwork that you require on an island because of it, but he’s big and athletic and if he can get his weight under control, then he could be a tremendous force on the interior of the Steelers offensive line because he has good hands, will stay square using a strong base and can easily control an opponent when engaged. Reports of him having had cancer have been quelled – although he will miss some time after the draft because of radiotherapy treatment. He made a late visit last week to meet with Mike Tomlin and Sean Kugler.
32). Cameron Heyward – DE – Ohio State
This is a typical Ted Thompson value pick here. There really isn’t a need for a linebacker at this spot although both Akeem Ayers and Justin Houston could fit. With Donald Driver getting on in years, they could easily bring in Miami’s Leonard Hankerson or add another dimension with Randall Cobb of Kentucky. And there are issues on the offensive line as Chad Clifton adds another year at LT and Daryn Colledge is a free agent. But with the issues surrounding Johnny Jolly and Cullen Jenkins then this is a pick that makes real sense. Heyward is a terrific run stopping defensive end who at times flashes elite quickness and whilst he doesn’t possess great skills to get after the quarterback, he will really help free up Clay Matthews and Erik Walden to get after the opposing passer. I suspect that Thompson will happily entertain trade talks and look out for the 49ers here moving up for Christian Ponder.
