In his new "Grade-A" mock draft, where he makes the picks for every team based on who he thinks is the best available player and best fit instead of projecting picks based on what he's hearing from teams, Kiper has the Titans taking Alabama LB Reuben Foster and CB Marlon Humphrey in the first round.

Here's the next part, where McShay admits "We're just messing with you, man". In his latest mock, Kiper believes the Buccaneers will select a pair of Washington Huskies with their first two picks - wide receiver John Ross at No. 19 and safety Budda Baker at No. 50.

We've seen their needs, we've targeted players, and we've won a coin toss, now one week away, let's spend an article mixing up the ideal draft cocktail for the Birds. And credit to Lloyd for rolling with this and handling it well.

It's not that second- and third-round picks weren't valuable last year or the year before. He could stick on the left side in the National Football League, and he might even beat out former first-round pick Ereck Flowers. And it's to the QB-needy Texans, who passed on one in Round 1. Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs also leaps into Day 2, ending up with the New Orleans Saints in the third round. And Engram is the most productive receiving tight end in the draft, too.

When the Buccaneers make their selection at No. 19, Kiper believes Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett and MI defensive end Taco Charlton will all still be available. Earlier this week, a team reportedly told McCaffrey they would pick him if he fell to them in the teens, but it appears whoever it was won't have the chance.

Meanwhile, what they don't have is still a safety.

The biggest step at the position this offseason came in the form of signing former Miami Dolphins tight end Dion Sims to a three-year contract. All these teams could easily draft quarterbacks, but at least one or two more of them will be in the first round.

Otherwise, McShay is correct in pointing out the 49ers need to find another running back to back up or replace Carlos Hyde - who's entering a contract year - and find an long-term replacement for Smith and/or Bowman at linebacker.

"Perine is just a bully", Kiper wrote. That is good for either the second best or best speed score since 1999.
