It's that time of year again: NFL Draft Day. Round one takes place tonight beginning at 5 p.m.

The Oakland Raiders have the No. 5 overall pick, while the San Francisco 49ers will be further down in the first round with the 30th pick, assuming they don't trade up.

Should the Raiders target a quarterback? Will the Niners go for a top-notch cornerback? Rotoworld takes a look at Bay Area football teams' draft needs this season.

Four of San Francisco's cornerbacks are not under contract for the upcoming season, so Rotoworld's Josh Norris sees Darqueze Dennard and Phillip Gaines as optimal options for the 49ers to target.
