With the San Francisco 49ers currently having 11 draft picks, plus more to come, it is highly likely the team will target a defensive back in the first three rounds. Defensive back, and more importantly at cornerback, is an area opposing offenses exploited in the regular season and playoffs.
The top defensive backs from the NFL Scouting Combine included Alabama’s CB Dee Milliner, Texas S Kenny Vaccaro, UConn’s CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Washington’s CB Desmond Trufant and Florida State’s CB Xavier Rhodes. Don’t be surprised if the 49ers draft Trufant with their first-round draft selection.
