Part of the mock draft process is the subjective process in which the mock drafter tries to weigh who he thinks the drafting team should take, who the drafting team thinks they should take, and everything that happens before that pick.

The passing attack was the team’s lone weakness – relatively speaking – last season, and if Peyton Manning had signed with the Niners, they’d be the favorite to win the Super Bowl.

The NFL Draft will go on as usual this week, even though the lockout continues in the league’s contract dispute with players.
