  • I'll be listening to the Draft on the radio. I just hope that they dont cut it off for a crappy baseball or basketball game. That pisses me off. Why have Draft coverage if you're going to cut it short??? Makes no sense whatsoever.

      I like Orakpo, but C'mon. It IS Skip Bayless though, who doesn't like Lebron, etc. etc.
      He is probably the biggest idiot on ESPN.

        Couple things that stuck out to me:
        --He said he will do what's best for the organization, and if that means selecting a QB at No. 10, that's what he'll do. He said he's not going to get scared and shy away from a QB in the first round.

        --Do you want to know the 49ers' draft board from last year? McCloughan confirmed that the first 18 players of last year's draft were taken in the EXACT order that the 49ers had them ranked.

        --On the subject of outside linebacker/defensive ends, he said he wants a first-round draft pick to be an every-down player. The exception, of course, would be if the player was an outstanding pass rusher who could change a game. He wants those OLBs to be in the 240-260 range and at least 6-foot-2.

        --Speaking of character, McCloughan said this is about the best draft class he remembers, one to 200, in that regard. The 49ers have not removed any draftable player from their board, he said. Character is factored into the equation. He mentioned that Tarell Brown was a third-round prospect that the 49ers selected in the fifth round. He was bumped down the draft board because of a couple run-ins with the law in his final year at Texas.

        --McCloughan said he would not picking two (or even three!) receivers in this draft. He said the team needs playmaking ability and speed from the wideout position. As for how the depth chart could shake out, McCloughan said that's will be sorted out during competition in training camp.
        I have to say, I wouldn't be shocked if they took Maclin if here was there and those top 4 OTs and Raji were gone.

        And from Bee-rows: http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs...es/021724.html
        McCloughan said a number of things that reinforce my opinion that the 49ers will not take Aaron Maybin or Everette Brown at no. 10. First he said that whomever the 49ers pick at No. 10 should be a three-down player. Later, when talking about Brian Orakpo, he said that what makes Orakpo attractive is that he's a big-bodied guy. On Maybin and Brown, McCloughan said that they both have a great burst but that they will never be 260-plus pound players, that they were limited in how much weight they could add. Taken together, that doesn't seem to bode well for Maybin - a mainstay to the 49ers in mock drafts - or Brown.

        • From the Maiocco article on Scotty Mac:

          "--The 49ers view defensive back Malcolm Jenkings as a cornerback who can play safety. (Sort of like Reggie Smith.) McCloughan said the 49ers would like to add a big body at safety with some speed."

          How about Yay's boy Micheal Mitchell from Ohio Univ. on day two? Sleeper.

          "--No team has called to ask about a trade for Mark Roman, who is on the trade block. If the 49ers are unable to deal Roman, he will remain with the team and compete for a job in training camp, McCloughan said."

          Duh, who would call? The guy has NO value when he can't get a pick in 2+ years. Maybe if hew was a SS that knocked off heads every other play - but that's not the case.

          "The 49ers have not removed any draftable player from their board, he said. Character is factored into the equation."

          This means that Andre Smith, Raji, and Harvin are still on their board, but may have been moved down, even out of the first round.

          • I don't see how can he can say that any 21 year old elite athlete will never be able to gain 8lbs during his NFL career. Demarcus Ware weighed less than Maybin on his draft day. He's now in the mid 260's.

            He says he wants a 3-4 OLB that can be over 260... Manny Lawson????

            He wants them to be over 6'2"... Parys Haralson????

            • Was just told Maiocco was on air predicting Tyson Jackson will be the pick at #10. WHY???? Please kill me.

                At the point that the 4 OTs are gone and Raji, you have to also assume Crabtree, Stafford and Curry will be as well.

                Then I can see that as possible if Orakpo is gone. That's honestly a horror scenario to me, especially since Scott just made it very clear he will not select Brown or Maybin in the top ten.

                As long as Sanchez is taken in the top ten there should be a good player available. If he is taken in the first 9, then one of these guys should be available:

                Raji
                Oher
                Smith
                Orakpo

                  Yeah, with each passing day I am assuming that it will be a draft to forget. I mean, who the **** thought we would take Balmer last year, really? I thought for sure it was going to be Phillips or like Quentin Groves.

                  • To clarify, Maiocco did NOT predict Tyson Jackson at #10. He did mention him as a player to consider.

                    I don't take anything McCloughan said too seriously. I undestand his height restriction considering you can't make someone taller, but he drafted Haralson (6'0"). I also find it hard to believe that Maybin won't gain 8lbs in the next few years.

                    Remember that anything and everything said by a team this close to draft-time is skewed with deception.

                    • I think if Orakpo is there, it's a near-lock. If not, Oher seems the likely choice.

                      • I love Orakpo, but the more I watch him, I really worry that he's at his ceiling. That would be tragic.

                            Signing Marvel Smith was my clue that we won't draft an OT in round 1.
                            Hell, let's be honest, I'll be happy with pretty much any defensive player we draft if they end up being an ***-kicker their rookie year.

                              ******* Taylor Mays... Seriously? What non-QB stays in school when they are a first round lock? HE COULD HAVE BEEN OURS!

                                I don't see what he would gain by saying he didn't think Maybin could play at 260. Like are the Packers going to be less willing to take him now?

                                Remember, its more than just adding the weight, its playing with it as well. That's the biggest concern I have with Maybin. He played well in college and added weight during the offseason. But he has never played with that weight.

                                His pro day really eliminated some of that concern for me, but I think it could be the reason they don't take him.
