49ers News: Will San Francisco Draft UCLA DE Datone Jones With the 31st Pick?

After a disappointing Super Bowl loss, the 49ers are looking to rebuild and reboot their team so that they come out even stronger in 2013.

If you know anything about Jim Harbaugh, it some come as no surprise that the focus in his draft class will be strong defense.

Given that the 49ers are drafting 31 overall, it is a bit hard to project who they will take but we have gotten word that the Niners are very high on UCLA DE Datone Jones.

Chat Sports has all of the latest 49ers News.

Datone is a huge DE who offers great pass-rushing ability. The 49ers are starting to become concerned with their elite DE Justin Smith because of his age (34 in september). Therefore the rational for this pick is to train and groom Datone to be the heir to Smith's throne on the Niners defense.

If the Niners do not find a pick that they like here, do not be surprised if the Niners either trade down or if they trade for more talent before the draft even starts.
