With pick 7-244 in the OM Mock Draft II, the San Francisco 49ers select:

OT Andrew Gardner, Georgia Tech


"You're goin' nowhere...."

Overview
Gardner earned his second consecutive first-team All-ACC recognition in 2008 despite missing the final four games following surgery on a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He had played through the injury most of the fall, which was no surprise given his streak of 48 consecutive starts up to that point. Although not particularly special in any one area, Gardner's sturdiness and dependability up front is not overlooked by NFL teams.

Analysis
Strengths: Good height with adequate build on the edge. Plays strong, attacking his opponent through the whistle in pass protection by punching and continually extending his arms to keep his man outside the pocket. Keeps his feet moving, which keeps him locked on his man. Will go through the whistle on his man when necessary. Good movement to the linebackers, giving good effort to get his hands on quicker defenders in space. Effectively uses angles to direct speedy defenders around the play. Gets low on cut blocks, which he did quite often in Tech's option attack as a senior. Steady player, hard worker.

Weaknesses: Not the elite athlete most teams want at left tackle. NFL speed rushers may give him problems due to his average lateral movement and tendency to overextend or miss his punch. Inconsistent initial quickness off the ball. Needs to prove strong enough to play inside or on the other side of the line. Does not recover quickly or retain his balance after the initial hit while cut blocking, and sometimes whiffs on the cut itself. Struggles to sustain in space because he overextends and lacks recovery speed.

2007 Season
Started every game at tackle earned first team All-ACC honors earned the first ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week after Tech's O-line completely dominated Notre Dame in the season opener (Sept. 1) the Yellow Jackets rushed for 259 yards, including 196 by Tashard Choice against the Irish graded out very well almost every week by then line coach Joe D'Alessandris was instrumental in keeping Tech quarterbacks from getting sacked during a three-game stretch against Clemson, Maryland and Miami.

2006 Season
Started every game at left tackle and earned honorable mention all-ACC recognition . . . Helps the Jackets rank second in the ACC in rushing and blocked for the league's leading rusher, Tashard Choice, who gained nearly 1,500 yards . . . Preseason second-team all-ACC selection by Lindy's, Athlon and The Sporting News, which also rated him the No. 17 offensive tackle in the nation.

2005 Season
Started every game at left tackle and was named a first-team Freshman All-America by the Football Writers' Association of America . . . Named to the Freshman All-ACC team by The Sporting News . . . Also tabbed an honorable mention Freshman All-America by TSN . . . Helped Tech lead the ACC in fewest sacks allowed with just 10 and rank third in the league in rushing.

2004 Season
Redshirted.

High School
Honorable mention all-state selection (Class AAAA) and first-team all-area (Fayette/Coweta Counties) by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution . . . Ranked among the Top 100 in Georgia by TheInsiders.com . . . Top lineman for an offense that produced more than 4,000 yards . . . An all-county selection as a junior . . . Wendy's High School Heisman nominee for Sandy Creek High, where he lettered three years for coach Rodney Walker . . . Also an all-county basketball player who once grabbed 19 rebounds in a game.

Personal
Full name is Andrew James Gardner . . . Born April 4, 1986 . . . Parents are Jim and Christine Gardner . . . Majoring in management.

Everyone else is now on the clock....

With their last two picks the Tennessee Titans select:

Quinton Lawrence, WR, McNeese St.

And Patrick Turner, WR, USC,

The Titans figure they will throw some darts and hope one of them sticks at the WR position.
