FoxSports.com: 5 Teams to Watch at the NFL Draft

1. San Francisco 49ers

It’s rare that a team that owns the 31st overall pick in the NFL Draft could end up being the most influential. But as one NFL GM told me last month at the annual Owners Meetings, this draft could really end up being the “San Francisco 49ers Invitational.”

It’s rare that a team that owns the 31st overall pick in the NFL Draft could end up being the most influential. But as one NFL GM told me last month at the annual Owners Meetings, this draft could really end up being the “San Francisco 49ers Invitational.”

Due to recent trades, compensatory picks and a grounded approach to the NFL Draft over the past decade, the 49ers have accumulated 13 selections in this month’s draft. Not bad for a team that won the NFC championship a season ago.

Phil Dawson, Nnamdi Asomugha and Glenn Dorsey have already signed with the 49ers this offseason.

General manager Trent Baalke has traded for Anquan Boldin and Colt McCoy. The 49ers are already reloading, but could make an even bigger splash at the draft. All eyes seem to be on Seattle this offseason and the Seahawks’ aggressive moves, but the 49ers carry a lot of weight heading into draft weekend.

They haven’t done too shabby this offseason, either.
