30. San Francisco 49ers
Aaron Donald
DT, Pittsburgh

Donald is a bully.  He abused linemen at the collegiate level.  Often compared to Bengals DT Geno Atkins because of their similar size; Atkins (6’1” 293lbs.), Donald (6’1” 288lbs.), Donald has possibly the quickest move off the line of any defensive tackle in this year’s class and gets to his target with efficiency, leading the country in sacks per game (1.6) and tackles for a loss (2.4).  He is considered by many to be the dark horse of the first round.  If San Francisco is fortunate enough to have Justin Smith’s eventual replacement be this guy, the rest of the NFC better watch out.
