Patrick Willis ran a good 40 today, maybe he gets his stock up into the teens and becomes a major consideration at 12 (I have always considered him, but most experts had him in the late 20's)

His main problem is his weakness in pass coverage which is so important in today's game. It's probably the main reason he isn't cracking the top 15-20 range. If your the GM, you have to decide if this guy is intellegent enough to learn or is he always going to be a 2 down LB. The interview will decide his fate up or down. He's got the physical tools.

Im just wondering with McGahee being on the trading block, wondering if you guys try and get Lynch?

DWhitner20 02-26-2007 03:37 PM

If we trade McGahee, I'd really love to get Lynch. I think it's a possibility.

DWhitner20 02-26-2007 04:05 PM

DE, Chris Kelsay re-signed

I'm glad we got this done. I'd like to know how much it was for, but I'm glad nonetheless. Hargrove should follow, and I like where we stand at DE

KJ4140 02-26-2007 04:33 PM

Patrick Willis did run a good 40, but he only benched 22 times. Thats a little lower than expected. I don't know if he's helped or hurt his stock at all, but I'm still for taking him at #12.

DWhitner20 02-26-2007 04:41 PM

Mayock called Jon Beason a top 15 pick and has him as his top rated LB, very interesting to me.

Rob S 02-26-2007 05:06 PM

really good move. I like Kelsay a lot, and him and Hargrove form a very good tandem with Schobel.

My ideal scenarios (i have two that i love about equally) would be trading Willis for a 2nd and 5th round pick...

Scenario A involves us trading our 1st pick, the 2nd we acquired from Willis, our 3rd rd. pick this year and next years 3rd (more than equal trade according to the value chart) to Tampa for the 4th overall pick to take Calvin Johnson, w/out question the best talent in this draft.

Scenario A.
1 cj - no brainer
2 Chris Houston or Daymeion Hughes - starting cb
4 Lorenzo Booker - dynamic runner/pass catcher in space, use him like saints used Bush
5 Le'Ron McClain - starting fb, great blocker, good athlete
6 Isaiah Stanback - athlete will find a spot somewhere
7 Ameer Ismail - small school OLB prospect w/ great #s, project w/ spot time

Scenario A would need to involve resigning Gandy and also signing another FA guard, keeping TKO, and signing a rb that can carry most of the load.

Scenario B involves trading Willis for a 2nd and 5th. Then trading our own 1st down into the high 20's for another 2nd rounder, giving us 3 2nds.

1 (20ish) Dwayne Jarrett - will be a great compliment to Lee at #2 wr
2a Chris Houston / Daymeion Hughes - starting cb
2b best available LB (Willis/Timmons/Beason)
2c best available OL (G or T) - Grubbs, Blalock, Beekman, Staley, Sears, etc...
3 Mike Bush - once healthy, the guy to take most of the carries
4 Lorenzo Booker - read above
5 Le'Ron McClain - starting fb
6 Joe Newton - red zone/1st down weapon, he'll be good
7 ATH - Samarzidja, Stanback, Newton, etc.

yipee! I wonder how long multi is...

DWhitner20 02-26-2007 07:44 PM

I just read that it's 4 years, 5.75 mil each year with 13.5 guarenteed.

Not so yipee... that's too much, can't really expect less with all this cap space though...

Space Ghost 02-26-2007 07:57 PM

Ideal draft.

1. Amobi Okoye DT Louisville
2. Daymeion Hughes CB California
3. Dwayne Wright RB Fresno State
4. Steve Smith WR USC
6. Rory Johnson LB Mississippi
7. Gabe Hall OL Texas Tech

Space Ghost 02-26-2007 07:59 PM

Well, it seems as though my favourite mid round 3-5 receiver has shot up quite a bit after his 40 time much like Art's Jason Hill. Aundrae Allison will sadly have zero chance at lasting to us in the fourth now and will probably be off the board in the second round along with Hill and we will see Anthony Gonzalez and Craig Davis drop behind them.

Allison was expected to run a fast 40 so it won't effect his draft status. The real reason Allison isn't getting more love from scouts and GM's is his inability to break the press at the line of scrimmage. He has a hard time against physical CB's getting off the line of scrimmage. Being a pro WR takes a lot more than just speed.

that is a lot, but DE are going for such high money it is to be expected.

art vandelay 02-27-2007 06:42 PM

I don't really like this move. We have Hargrove waiting in the wings and Denney is becoming a solid DE. Also, a DE could fall to us in the draft at #12 or we could draft one later in the draft so I don't think this was a good move.

art vandelay 02-27-2007 06:48 PM

Ideal 1st Day Draft...more to come later.

1. Leon Hall CB Michigan / Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh
2. Ben Grubbs OG Auburn / Antonio Pittman RB Ohio State
3. Ahmad Bradshaw RB Marshall / Manuel Ramirez OG Texas Tech

DWhitner20 02-28-2007 01:31 PM
