Be sure to voice your opinion in the comment section below with a mock selection of your own.

Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

"If the 49ers want to further aid Colin Kaepernick's development, they need to find another target, ideally a matchup threat and a guy who can win at the catch point and outmuscle defenders for contested catches.

White had a monster year at West Virginia and has made himself more explosive in space as he's added strength."

Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

"The 49ers receiving corps is loaded with big-bodied pass catchers, but the lack of speed could make White the ideal fit at this point."

Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

"A 6-3 junior college transfer with good NFL speed, he ended the season with 109 catches for 1,457 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. A big target with athletic features, White could be a key cog in the Jim Tomsula era."

Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

"The 49ers need to upgrade their wide receiver corps. Lots of options here but the call goes to West Virginia's Kevin White. He has all the tools and is coming off a huge 2014 campaign."

Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State

"Wide receiver will be a popular call for the 49ers mid-round 1. Cornerback is another position where the 49ers have issues, doubly so with Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox possibly headed toward free agency. Waynes has separated a bit from the CB class. He's extremely aggressive versus the pass and run, yet has the awareness to make plays on the ball without committing penalties."

Danny Shelton, DT, Washington

"Defensive line is a need for the Niners and Shelton provides San Francisco and new head coach Jim Tomsula a versatile option at several positions up front. Shelton showed at the Senior Bowl that he belongs in the top-15 of this draft class."

Malcom Brown, DT, Texas

"Brown would slide in for the 49ers at 3-4 defensive end and give them a nice impact player on the defensive line, which is important with all of those linebackers hopefully coming back from injury and suspension with a vengeance in 2015."

Malcom Brown, DT, Texas

"Justin Smith might've played his last NFL game, and Brown is a plug-and-play prospect. He has excellent strength at the point of attack."

Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma

"Green-Beckham is a top-10 talent who is drawing comparisons to Cincinnati Bengals star A.J. Green for his size, speed and ballskills, but he comes with significant off-field concerns. GM Trent Baalke has been more willing than most to gamble on talented players with character red flags."
