The San Francisco 49ers are on the clock.

The 49ers have been diligent in their offseason moves and look to make a splash on draft day.

While they were just one win away from playing in the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season, there is work to be done on this roster. The 49ers released cornerback Carlos Rogers and watched Tarell Brown depart for Oakland. With some intriguing cornerbacks on the roster, they could afford to bolster their secondary.

With All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman rehabbing from extensive knee surgery this offseason, they could also look to add a talented linebacker.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman could also use another weapon as there are some intriguing options available. So, who will the 49ers select No. 30 overall?

28. Carolina Panthers select Virginia OL Morgan Moses

29. New England Patriots select Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro

TCU CB Jason Verrett

At 5-foot-9, 190 pounds, Verrett might be the most polished cover cornerback in the draft. Some critics have pointed out that his size is a significant disadvantage, but Verrett isn’t concerned as he has had success against big receivers in the Big 12.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby

The 5-foot-11, 194-pound cornerback is an athletic freak and displayed his straight-line speed in Indianapolis. Roby has great size and looks the part, but has been knocked by his inconsistent play and off-the-field troubles.

Boise State DE Demarcus Lawrence

Lawrence has been one of the hottest rising prospects in the past month. Several teams have brought Lawrence in for a visit. The 6-foot-3, 251-pound defensive end is very athletic, but some may consider this a reach.

Missouri DE Kony Ealy

The 6-foot-4, 273-pound defensive end has a long frame with room to add bulk. His blend of size and speed is rare and he was productive in the SEC, starting all 14 games and filling the stat sheet on a weekly basis.

Indiana WR Cody Latimer

Latimer would give the Patriots another reliable threat on the outside. Latimer has very good size and reliable hands. While he was sidelined during the draft process with a foot injury, he’s been one of many draft analysts’ favorite players.
