Best-case scenario: 49ers with No. 10 pick

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

INDIANAPOLIS -- Draft analyst Rob Rang is back with his best-case scenario for the 49ers with the 10th overall choice in the 2009 NFL draft.

Rob Rang: They would like to get a pass rusher. Brian Orakpo is going to be a possibility there. Everette Brown could be a possibility. A player that certainly is interesting for them would be [receiver] Jeremy Maclin. Michael Crabtree if he fell all the way down, because they certainly need some help at wide receiver.

The reality is, until Sunday, I had Everette Brown being the elite pass-rusher of the bunch. He came in at 6-foot-1 7/8 and that is just too short. I think he's going to drop down a little bit and then Aaron Maybin is still a young guy that needs to bulk up a little bit. He came in at 6-4, 250 pounds. He played last year at 230 pounds. So the 20 pounds he has gained in two months, a lot of that is water weight. I'm curious exactly how he is going to work out. A speed pass-rusher on the outside certainly would complement them.

I think [quarterback] Matt Stafford is going to be long gone. If Mark Sanchez works out very well, he makes some sense as well.

Next: Cardinals at No. 31.
