    Pondering The NFL Draft

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    ESPN.com NFL writer John Clayton thinks Christian Ponder may be headed to either the San Francisco 49ers or the Cincinnati Bengals in the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft.

    Q: What do you see the 49ers doing in the draft? Since it doesn't look like they can trade for Kevin Kolb before the draft, do you see them targeting someone like Andy Dalton or Christian Ponder in the second round and going defensive with their first pick?

    A: That's exactly what I think they will do -- defense first, quarterback second. One problem is getting the quarterback in the second round. Florida State's Ponder isn't going to fall below Cincinnati's pick in the second round, and there is a chance TCU's Dalton could be gone by the time San Francisco picks in the second round (45th overall). What might have to happen is the 49ers trade up in the lower part of the first round or top of the second to get the quarterback whom they prefer.
