Czar's team-by-team NFL Draft grades

San Francisco 49ers

They had a decent draft, especially after they were able to get Carolina's third-round pick next season for one of their fourth-round picks. Then they got a steal in the fourth round with Wake Forest guard Joe Looney, who was available because he broke his foot at the Senior Bowl. Looney started as a true freshman at left guard and fills a need in San Francisco. ... They went for pure speed in their first two selections, Illinois receiver A.J. Jenkins and Oregon running back LaMichael James, who must develop into a third-down receiver. James, though, did rush for over 1,500 yards in three consecutive college seasons and has home-run ability based on his 53 touchdowns. Still, James isn't Darren Sproles quite yet. ... Notre Dame linebacker Darius Fleming is a tweener, but a great open-field tackler who will help on special teams. ... Virginia pass rusher Cam Johnson, a classic underachiever, made perfect sense in the low-risk seventh round. Grade: C+
