San Francisco 49ers Pick Marcus Martin. Though the 49ers still need to address CB, WR, and DL, but they have solidified another position where they needed to get some new bodies: offensive line. Martin was Mike Mayock’s highest-rated center on his draft board.
The 49ers continue to announce loudly and clearly that the 49ers will run the ball. . .and run the ball. . .and run the ball. They will take no prisoners and will not succumb to the temptations of having everyone be small and fast.
If the 49ers had not traded for Stevie Johnson earlier Friday, I would be questioning their decision making. As it stands, it seems quite clear–obviously clear–that they did not like any of the receivers taken thus far enough to merit selecting them. Even more obvious is the fact that the 49ers are sticking to their draft board, no matter what position their top-ranked player plays.
