SB Nation Writers Mock Draft: Round 2, Pick #43

No. 10


Pick by Niners Nation

Kenny Britt
Wide receiver


How good is Fooch's crew over at Niners Nation? It's so good, Fooch let staffer briandean handle the write-up here.

Kenny Britt is one of the few wide outs in 2009 that projects as a potential #1 in the NFL. For that reason, Britt is considered a first rounder by most analysts. Even those who were late to the Britt party are starting to come around. The first thing you notice about Britt is his size at 6-foot-3, 218 pounds. He plays up to that size with a physical style of play and doesn't shy away from contact as a blocker, fighting for the ball in the air, going over the middle or looking for yards after the catch. He's still lean and could add even more strength without losing any speed. For a big man, he gets to top speed very quickly, which makes his 4.50 speed play a little faster. Britt runs good routes and does a great job getting open on intermediate routes and finds seams in the zone. Another thing he does well for a big man is go down and catch a low pass off the grass.

While Britt is good after the catch, he isn't great and not elusive laterally with those long strides. His biggest knock is the occasional dropped pass, due to concentration or letting the ball get into his body. He doesn't have huge hands either. Britt is generally described as confident and a good teammate, but some people say he's bordering on cocky and may become a diva.

MTD thoughts: The Niner's Nation guys must be pretty confident in Shaun Hill at quarterback considering Josh Freeman is still available. While the 49ers need better receiving and Britt is a good value pick, Freeman could give the team a bright future.
