2013 NFL Fantasy Football Mock Draft Results: 49ers Defense a Reach in 9th Round

Based on recent ADP results, it’s no surprise that the top team defenses came off the board in the 9th round. Both Seattle and San Francisco are worthy top-five selections at their position, but as a 49ers fan I’m concerned about the team's secondary.
Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson moved on to the Buccaneers, and the 49ers replaced him with first-round pick Eric Reid in the draft. After watching their corners struggle during the playoffs, I was also disappointed that they failed to address this position in the draft, instead adding Nnamdi Asomugha in free-agency.
If not for third-year corner Chris Culliver going down for the season (torn ACL) this week, Asomugha would've been a candidate for release by the end of camp.
As for Reid, we can’t expect a rookie to play at an All-Pro level like Goldson in year one, so we should expect this secondary to struggle against capable passing attacks, like when they face Aaron Rodgers in Week 1.
