  • Two WRs that don't fit McCloughan's "body type" that will be mid-late round picks and I think will succeed are Mike Thomas and Johnny Knox.

      I read that and thought it was the perfect kind of bruiser (5'-10" 220lbs) we need for short yardage carries, given Gore affinity for not getting it done near the goal line.
      Gartrell Johnson definitely seems to fit the mold of what we assume Coach Sing is looking for. I'm hoping for one of Shonn Greene, Rashad Jennings, or Johnson.

      • I really hope that we dont draft a WR in rounds 1-3 because we have bigger needs and I dont think any WR taken there will make an impact for us. Besides, I want to see Morgan, Hill and Jones on the field to see what they can do with a full year with Hill as their QB. At least, thats what im hoping.

        Quite honestly, if Brown, Oher and Jenkins are available at 10, I would trade down a few spots but still make sure that I get one of the three. Then, with the extra draft pick which would most likely be a third rounder, trade that and the second rounder to get back into the bottom of the first round in order to get the other position that we didnt get earlier.

        I'm leaning towards a pass rushing OLB and then a RT in that order because OT is deeper than getting a pass rushing OLB for the 3-4 is.

        Thats what I would try to do anyway. Either way, as long as we get our pass rushing OLB and our starting RT wih our first two draft picks, I will be the happiest 49er fan here.

            I read it all of the time. I'm still confused out of my mind as to how ZERO sacks in the SEC is a sign of inconsistency.

              so why is there such a massive knock on him? why not take him over andre smith and be done?

              • just read this on espn.
                The asterisks reflect totals affected by AdamJT13's projections. He expects the 49ers to gain one choice in each of the fifth and sixth rounds. He expects the Seahawks to gain four seventh-round choices. He expects the Cardinals to gain on seventh-round choice.

                  Oher is suffering from what I like to call "Brady-Quinn syndrome". Basically it is when you should declare after your junior year but you stay for your senior season and that gives people more time to evaluate you and find every little flaw in your game. Was Oher worse in 2008 than he was in 2007? No, people just think he was because of all the attention.

                  As for the comp. picks, I heard we were getting a 4th and 6th.

                  • There have been some interesting releases at positions where we could use some depth. Kevin Shaffer, Torry Holt, and Ken Lucas could all help our team out potentially.

                    I hope we take a look at Shaffer. He could be a good starting RT and it would allow us to take a developmental prospect in the 4th round or so. It would also allow us to focus on other needs as well.

                    Holt im not so high on because i think our youngsters need playing time, but if Bruce retires id love to have Holt as a veteran mentor.

                    Lucas is meh...again, i want our youngsters Brown and Smith to get some playing time as well. But if we move Smith to FS Lucas could be a good nickel for us.

                      Someone posted a video, I dont know where on this site, of Andre Smith in their game against Mississippi State and he was getting beat by some smaller DE. All the while, Oher has looked great all through college and is quite the mauler. I would think he'd be a great RT for the team.

                      Also, from Barrows blog:

                      I just watched Michael Lombardi present a fascinating Top 10 mock draft on NFL Network. Lombardi has the 49ers taking ... drum roll, please ... Tennessee defensive end Robert Ayers with the 10th pick. Ayers definitely was one of the guys who jumped out at the Senior Bowl in January. But unlike other practice-week stars like B.J. Raji, Ayers also came up big in the game, and he's been one of the fastest risers over the last few months.

                      All mock drafts, especially ones in March, should be eyed suspiciously. But it's notable that Lombardi is the only ex-GM in the mock business, and that gives him automatic credibility. One of the questions about Ayers is whether he is agile enough to stand up and play linebacker in a 3-4. After a week of Senior Bowl practice, the 49ers came away thinking that Ayers could indeed handle that transition. And besides, the team already has had success with another Tennessee
                      I would be shocked if they took Ayers over Crabtree but I guess stranger things have happened (Kentwan Balmer). Hell, I didnt even think Ayers was round 1 talent.

                        He's actually VERY reminiscent of Balmer. HUGE ceiling, all the talent in the world. 3 years of underachieving and one good season.

                          Those type of players scare the **** out of me. It just seems that they are like, "oh ****, it's my last year, I better kick ass."

                          If Crabs falls, he's my favorite choice; if not, I am going Oher/Raji/Brown (in that order) all the way.

                          • That would be sick if we picked Ramses Barden in the 2nd-3rd.

                              Would rather have SF try to sign him then Holt.

                                I think they're trying to get younger but I think he'd be a nice pick up for OLB.
