The San Francisco 49ers are really looking to strengthen in the 2014 NFL draft, and the plethora of picks they currently have at their disposal makes this an interesting couple of days for Niners fans.

But all the focus will be around what they do with their first round pick which currently sits at the 30th overall spot, sandwiched by the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.

Much of the talk around the league is that the 49ers could well trade up, with the Baltimore Ravens at number 17 looking the most likeliest option if that is the way they go.

Well we got a hint of what Jim Harbaugh and co, would do with that hint today. From the San Francisco Chronicle’s Eric Branch:

"Source: Hearing 'same buzz' as last year #49ers are very interested in an LSU player: WR Odell Beckham."

There is a chance that Beckham is off the board by the time the 17th pick comes around however - or if they stay at 30. Some think he could sneak in to the top 10 as the third best wide receiver in the class behind Clemson’s Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M’s Mike Evans.

Beckham Jr. is a junior out of Louisiana and lists in at 5ft 11inches and 198lbs, a little bit under-sized for a modern NFL receiver.

Beckham managed a 4.43 40-Yard dash time at the scouting combine and put up numbers of 1152 yards off just 59 receptions, an average of 19.5 yards per catch and 8 touchdowns on the season.
