2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft: Pick No. 13

Rd. # Player Pos. College
1 13 Bryan Bulaga
OT
Iowa
General Manager: JCruize

With the 13th pick of the 2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the San Francisco 49ers select Iowa offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga.

Here is JCruize's reasoning for the pick:

With the recent firing of the 49ers' general manager, Scot McCloughan, Mike Singletary has become the face and voice of the San Francisco 49ers. Singletary is an old school, hard ass head coach, and in my mocking of the 49ers, I want to try and take that persona into account. I want my picks to reflect what I believe the 49ers will do in the upcoming draft. San Francisco has three picks in the first two rounds, and I feel they have three major areas of concern. I will try to address those concerns with my picks.

One of the concerns is on the offensive line. The 49ers are in need of a solid right tackle in a bad way. Adam Snyder was overwhelmed and outmatched as the team's primary starter. The 49ers would like to get back to being a power running football team, and they need to solidify their right side. Bryan fits the need perfectly.

About Bryan Bulaga. He is a 6'6", 314 lbs. offensive tackle from Iowa. He was named the Big Ten's Offensive Lineman of the Year even though he missed three games due to illness. He is an intelligent, hardworking competitor who shut down Georgia Tech's Derrick Morgan in the 2010 Orange Bowl. Bulaga has a great slide kick. He keeps his knees bent and his arms extended. He has the ability to stop the finesse and speed rushers, but he also has the brute force to stop the bull rushers. He is an excellent pass blocker and a very good run blocker. Bulaga has also played guard at Iowa, so he is versatile. Considered by many to be a top ten pick, he became the obvious choice when he slid down to 13.
