  • Adding another franchise-type tackle to Baas, Heitman/Wallace, Rachal, & Staley would make an awesome young O-Line that I would be very happy with, moving forward to next season.

        I didn't say he is a failure. I said if we had the opportunity to draft a blue-chip legit LT if one is there, we have to jump on it. Especially considering how little depth we have at OT. But if we draft a good RT and keep Staley at LT, whatever. Same difference.

        • I would rather take a "skilled" position in this draft after having such a boring draft the last time around.

          • I dont care if it's boring so long as it improves our chances of winning.

              We can't keep signing these journey man unknowns. Alex Smith was picked because it was either him or Rodgers, both of whom ran gimmicky offenses in college. We gotta change up the trend sometime. Matthew Stafford is one guy I would take a chance on.

                I agree with this.

                  Boring wins games. I would take a chance on him too.

                  • Well, boring was the way to describe our draft this last year, but they were in our positions of weakness. Since our Draft picks aren't getting much PT, we have almost all the same needs currently: DT, O-Line (OT), WR, CB. The only "new" need is QB I would add to that mix looking at '09. Now, do we draft for our need again, or do we let the young guys step up that were drafted in those positions in '08?

                    Obviously we need a QB, and I'll be anxious to take a closer look at this year's group in the offseason. It would be nice to find a gem in the 2nd-4th Rounds that can be developed.

                    I say Balmer will develop into a good player, but we still need a NT/Space Eater regardless of what D is played next year to help compliment Balmer, Justin Smith, Ray Mac, and Sopo. GET RID OF FRANKLIN!

                    I would like another "speed" corner, especially if Smith takes over Walt Harris' place. That will leave us with 2 physical corners (which I do like) but we need another corner with a quicker skillset that won't get burned by the faster WRs in the league.

                    Morgan looks to be the real deal but is still raw and Hill is hungry to prove that he is worthy of a 3rd Round pick, but I would consider adding a big framed "Red Zone" WR to the mix as well. Bruce should be good for another year, but I would bet that Johnson, and possibly Battle, are gone.

                    OT is a huge need, and I would love to get a "book end" for Staley. I believe it's worth investing another high pick on the right guy, but I don't want to reach (like some teams were later in the 1st Round this year) for an OT just to get one. Luckily (and UNLUCKILY) for the Niners, they'll end up with a Top 10 (or Top 5) pick to get their OT.

                    If an OT isn't available, I would love to obtain a pass rushing DE high in the 1st, effectively switching to a true 4-3 again.

                    • 1. Andre Smith OT, Bama
                      2. Mike Mickens CB, Cincy

                      or

                      1. Malcolm Jenkins CB, OSU
                      2. Phil Loadholdt OT, OK

                      I think these are some big needs but to put together a young secondary and offensive line is a plan for success. I think we're in heavy need of a pass rusher. I wish we would just make to the switch to a true 4-3 like others have expressed in this thread. I'm thinking Balmer would be moved to DT in a 4-3.

                        • The reason why the class has not had a huge impact is because they drafted all developemental players. I think Rachal, Balmer, Smith, Morgan, and maybe even Larry Grant will all be great players. Just not this year. The Orakpo, Loadholt draft is probably my dream draft.

                          • Here's an idea -

                            FREE AGENCY -

                            DE Terrell Suggs
                            OLB Karlos Dansby

                            DRAFT -

                            CB Malcolm Jenkins

                            OL will look like this -

                            LT - Staley
                            LG - Baas
                            C - Heitmann
                            RG - Rachal
                            RT - Snyder

                            How's that guys?

                            I do want Oher but would love to have Jenkins as it appears after him, theres pretty much no one else who's considered a shut down CB.

                            • If Brian Orakpo is there, I dont see how we can pass on him. We need all the pass rush help possible.

                                Yeah Orakpo would be a great addition.
