The San Francisco 49ers have been to three straight NFC Championship games. They are expected to be one of the favorites in the NFC again in 2014. One of the keys to their success has been great drafts. This year San Francisco has the No. 30 overall pick in the first round. There are a lot of directions they could go in round one. Here are five scenarios that could play out for the 49ers.

San Francisco has a great defense, but they are always looking to add more talent. One of those talented players is C.J. Mosley. Mosley is a tackling machine out of Alabama and would be a great addition to the 49ers' front seven.

4. Draft Jason Verrett

San Francisco lost Tarell Brown in free agency and might look to replace him in the draft with Jason Verrett. Verrett could be a starter for the 49ers from day one if needed.

3. Draft Marqise Lee

The 49ers have a good pair of WRs in Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree, but not much beyond that. Drafting Marqise Lee would give them a good third WR and eventual replacement for Anquan Boldin.

2. Draft Odell Beckham Jr.

Another WR that San Francisco could add is Odell Beckham Jr. out of LSU. Beckham is a speedy WR who could stretch the field for the 49ers. He would be a great complement to Boldin and Crabtree.

Kelvin Benjamin is a 6-foot-5 WR who would be a great fit with the 49ers. Kaepernick would love to have a tall target like Benjamin in the red zone to go along with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis.
