Secret Superstar: Chilo Rachal, San Francisco 49ers

Following the 2009 season, it was pretty clear the 49ers had some problems with their offensive line.

So it was no surprise when they used two first round picks to bring in Anthony Davis and Mike Iupati. It wasnít even a surprise that both men found themselves starting all 16 games and becoming the talk of the unit: Davis for his sub-standard play, and Iupati for his punishing run blocking.

But there were other stories on the line. While 49er fans bemoaned losing Joe Staley to injury for a large portion of the season, and saw the highs (run blocking) and lows (pass protection) in David Bassí switch to center, their best performer went quietly unnoticed.

Itís with little surprise, therefore, that our Secret Superstar for the San Francisco 49ers is none other than right guard, Chilo Rachal....

[continues here]
Well...that was unexpected!

Regardless, I think Rachal tended to be a scapegoat in a lot of instances and I believe that he has become more and more consistent. If this trend continues, the youth, and power on the 49ers young line could deem exciting.

They lost their credibility when they got their information incorrect. Rachal didn't get back into the lineup because of Adam Snyder not performing, it was because of the injury to Tony Pashos. Rachal's inline blocking is adequate, but that's about it not very good pulling and horrendous in pass protection.

Great read from Eric Branch about Tomsula. Hoping him and Leavitt can really turn Smith into something great.

Great article!

Nice to see mention of Woodie High. Not only can produce quality NFL players (most of any HS in 2010), but also quality coaches as well.

Great read on Donatell. He also somewhat confirms my suspicions about our CB picks in the draft being guys we really had our eye on all along.....

Quote:
The only players Donatell has been able to coach thus far during his time with the 49ers are the prospects he scouted for the draft. The 49ers brought in several prospects, including Patrick Peterson and Prince Amukamara, for visits. Donatell also spoke at length with the two defensive backs the 49ers drafted.

"We sat down at dinner and talked a lot and I definitely learned a lot from him, looking at tape, learning different formations and everything," said Culliver, whom the 49ers selected with the No. 80 overall selection.

"So I definitely feel like he's going to be a coach that can teach me a lot and I can learn a lot from him."

I can at least understand the pick of Culliver now. At least he has the size and speed to potentially be a starting DB at one point in his career. And Donatell is a quality secondary coach too. Lets see how it plays out now.

Some quotes from Trent Baalke during his draft pick film session with beat writers...

Quote:
Lights! Camera! Draft picks! Baalke reviews 49ers draft class

In a darkened meeting room this morning, Trent Baalke paused the movie during a favorite action sequence: Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick rolled to his left, stared down pressure from a Cal defender and delivered the ball on a line to a receiver 20 yards downfield.

Nothing in Kaepernick’s delivery was quite as a coach would draw it up – the passer was flushed out of the pocket and never able to set his feet. As a defender barreled in, Kaepernick was forced to throw the ball at a three-quarters delivery instead of over the top.

But to Baalke, the 49ers’ general manager, Kaepernick’s ad lib is what made the scene so great. He hit the pause button again.

“A quarterback has to be able to work through chaos. If a quarterback can’t sort through that, he’s not going to make it in the National Football League,’’ Baalke said. “Watch here.”

The film rolls again and Kaepernick is on the move.

“He’s got quick feet in the pocket and then the throws a B.B. even though he never gets his shoulders squared downfield. You look for a quarterback who can throw of his back foot, who can change his arm angle.”

This highlight clip was part of the 49ers’ second annual post-draft review – loosely defined as the Trent Baalke Film Festival. The G.M. met with about a dozen writers to show what he and other 49ers scouts saw during their pre-draft evaluations.

Equipped with a laser pointer and center stage, Baalke broke down three or four plays from each of the 10 of players the 49ers selected last month. (This was, by design, a feel-good movie – “I’m not going to spend time talking about what a guy doesn’t do,’’ Baalke acknowledged.)

Here, then, is a close-up of every draft pick with Baalke providing the narration:

OLB Aldon Smith, Missouri (first round): “You look at the versatility he brings to the table. He’s played inside. He’s played outside. He’s got good quickness off the ball and he has those 36-inch arms. (Smith beats Colorado left tackle Nate Solder with an inside move and then hauls down the QB for a sack.) You look at the quickness. One thing that I’m looking for in a defensive player is a guy that can play to the football with his eyes. You watch Aldon – you can watch a lot of snaps – and he rarely takes his eyes off the ballcarrier. If you watch him, he’s looking past the blocker He’s trying to find the football. He’s feeling the blocker, but just look at his eyes and where they stay. (Baalke mentions NFL standouts Willie McGinest, Shawne Merriman and Bryce Paup.) Does Aldon have some stiffness to him? Yes, but those guys did, too. He also has some unique flexibility. He can get his body in position that other guys can’t.
__________________________________________________ ____________

QB Colin Kaepernick, Nevada (second round). “He’s got good stature with excellent straight-line speed. His arm strength his unique – he has a big-time arm. (Against Boston College, Kaepernick rolls left and throws that direction.) That’s very hard to do. Try that. You’re running full speed to the opposite side of your arm action and you’re able to throw the ball with velocity and accuracy. (On his funky mechanics) It’s like a golf swing – all that matters is the end result. … We’re comfortable with his motion. There may be some teaching when it comes to protecting the football. (On a play against Hawaii, Kaepernick looks to his left before his eyes drift back to his right to find tight end Virgil Green downfield for a 25-yard gain.) Look at his eyes. He came back to his right and threw it over the first line of defense and dropped it into the hole. The whole time, he stood tall in the pocket. This is life in the NFL. … I want a guy confident enough to throw the ball into the defense. … (On his freelance ability) There are guys who need everything to be right. In the NFL, very seldom is everything right. They’ve got to be able to throw off their back foot. They’ve got to be able to drop their elbow and throw it out of the side window. So you’re looking for guys who can change those planes, whether it’s with the arm or with the feet. It’s not like you’re in the backyard playing catch.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

CB Chris Culliver, South Carolina. (third round): “He started 31 games in the SEC and seven last year at corner. Every game, he got better at the position. He got more comfortable. That’s what we’re looking for. … We like that he’s played both positions. He’s played nickel. He’s played the perimeter. He’s a 6-foot-plus corner who ran in the low 4.4s. … (On film, he makes a tackle in run support) One of the things you look for is the ability to transition – the guys who can put their foot down in the dirt and close with quickness. This is where his safety experience can help: He’s not afraid of contact.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

RB Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State (fourth round): “We’re not looking at him as a change-of-pace back. We think he’s a four-down back. He can run the power game, he can get to the edge, he can catch a ball out of the backfield, he can pass-protect and he can return punts and kickoffs … (Breaks off a few runs against Washington State). He’s got a very good combination of quickness, strength and bursts. Is he a 4.3 guy? No. But he has very good competitive speed. You don’t see him get caught from behind. I really like the way he finishes his runs.
__________________________________________________ ____________

G Daniel Kilgore, Appalachian St. (fifth round): “He’s a left tackle that will move inside. One thing we like about him is the balance and strength that he has in his body. He has good feet.” (He takes on Florida’s right defensive end). What do guards have to do? They have to be able to operate in space — even if it’s against a defensive back or a linebacker, they have get the job done. (Is he a guard or a center?) He’s going to come in here as both. It’s hard to be a one-position backup player in this league.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

WR Ronald Johnson, USC (sixth round): (Lined up in the slot, he slips away from defenders against Virginia Tech). “We feel like we got good value in this pick. He’s a guy we feel can play the slot and play the ‘Z’ position for us and also has return value. … He’s another guy where we like his wiring. Everybody at USC talked about his passion for the game. … At this point in the draft, he was too good a value to turn down.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

S Colin Jones, Texas Christian (sixth round): “You see on film that he loves special teams. He’s the first guy down and loves contact. We’re going to throw him into the mix at strong safety, but his path to this team is on special teams. … Can he develop a niche on the defense? Can this guy develop into that dime linebacker role? Can he be an elite special teamer? That’s what we drafted him to do.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

FB Bruce Miller, Central Florida (seventh round): (His highlight film shows Miller making sacks as a defensive end, but he will be a fullback in the NFL). He is wired the way we want our guys wired. He plays the game 100 percent, every snap. This guy is football savvy and football smart. (He compared him to former Stanford linebacker Erik Lorig, who played FB last year for Tampa Bay). This guy gets a lot of his production with effort. He’s going to be a hard guy to cut from the 53-man roster because he’s going to be at practice early and he’s going to outwork most of the players on the practice field. Those guys are hard to cut.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

G Michael Person, Montana State (seventh): “He’s a little bit bigger than Kilgore. (A clip shows him protecting the quarterback’s blind side at LT.) You see him have nice balance, nice feet. You’re looking for a guy that does not lose very often at this level. You want somebody who dominates and makes it look easy. That’s what he does.”
__________________________________________________ ____________

CB Curtis Holcomb, Florida A&M (seventh round): He’s a four-time captain. You talk about wired right? I don’t think anybody in our building had ever heard of that. (He stays with a receiver on a deep route). This guy is a lot like Philip Adams, who we feel very good about. Can he cover the receiver? Does he have the quickness to close? He has good feet and hips.”

Some more info on our newest CB Holcomb....

Quote:
Draft guru Mel Kiper didnít have Holcomb rated among his draft-eligible cornerbacks, but the 49ers, who put him through a private workout, werenít the only team that had Holcomb on their radar.

Taylor said at least four other teams, including the Jaguars and Packers, brought him in for a pre-draft visit.

Said Taylor, ďHe was very busy that last month.Ē

If he was on the Packers radar, that has to be a plus. They've found recent success with under-the-radar CBs.

I was thinking the same thing when I read it. And then there's this also....

Quote:
Director of player personnel Tom Gamble noted that Holcomb had what the 49ers term a “plus workout” at his pro day. Baalke didn’t get into the specifics of what a “plus workout” is, but it’s obviously an indication of an impressive performance.

The Niners compiled a list of “plus workout” players and then had their pro staff do film research on them. If the staff believed the player was worthy of a cut-up, they passed that film along to Baalke and Gamble, who reviewed it.

Still have no clue how Holcomb had to stand out as a Freshman to be voted team captain. 4 years as a team captain? Unheard of.

Yeah, if you're going to take a late-round flier on a guy, he might as well be unique in good ways like this. Phillip Adams is going to have a lot of competition for a roster spot.

On the discussion of CBs, I could realistically see the Niners cutting Clements outright due to him not wanting to take as much of a pay cut as they'd like. That would make for a very young secondary.

Quite possibly. Tramaine Brock and Will James, as well. Spillman if he doesn't move to Safety.

It would be terribly young. However, I don't think this is about Nate refusing a pay-cut. Discussions can't be made between the parties at all so it's kind of a moot point, unfortunately. I think it's a good sign that Nate has been working out with teammates. That shows that he at least hopes to be a 49er.

I think Adams is definitely makes the roster if he heals completely from that ankle. Baalke and the staff are very high on him and so am I. More likely either Holcomb, Brock, or Spillman are the odd men out. Jones looks to be drafted as a upgrade to Spillman. Will James won't be back. I believe Clements, Spencer, Taylor and Brown are all on the hot-seat. Clements and his contract will be the big story whenever the lockout ends. I like Spencer as a #2 CB but if a younger guy steps up, I have no problem letting him walk. Brown was extended 2 years ago, in the hopes of being starter in a year or two. Not even. A decent nickel-back but Culliver was brought in for a reason. Writing may be on the wall for him as well. Taylor will make the team on ST. I think he, Jones, and Spillman are going to battle for two spots, maybe one depending on how the LBs shake out. May the best man win. Goldson's status will also play a role. If he's back, does Reggie Smith back him up or is Smith the starting SS? And if Smith and Goldson are the starters, who's the back-up at FS? I know Mays will back-up SS and Smith probably slides over to FS if Goldson is hurt. But what if they both suffer injury? Maragos? Alot of questions and alot of bodies in regards to our secondary at the moment. Here's the rundown

CB

Nate Clements
Shawntae Spencer
Tarrell Brown
Phillip Adams
Tremaine Brock
Chris Culliver
Curtis Holcomb

S

Dashon Goldson
Reggie Smith
Taylor Mays
Curtis Taylor
CJ Spillman
Chris Maragos
Colin Jones

And who knows what we'll do once free agency starts. But the beauty of a new staff is its open competition across the board and I'm all for that. Can't wait to see who emerges from the fire.

I'm about 90% sure that once the lockout ends, Clements is released, and a FA cb is signed

So Matt Maiocco confirmed that we had agreed to the same trade wit the Falcons that they ended up doing with the Browns.
Quote:
The 49ers agreed to the same deal the Atlanta Falcons ultimately executed with the Cleveland Browns to move up to No. 6 to select receiver Julio Jones.
http://www.csnbayarea.com/05/22/11/M...63&feedID=5936

So what does our draft look like if the Browns say no and we take the Falcons deal? Do we trade back up to grab Smith? Is Kaepernick a 1st round pick instead of a 2nd rounder? Alot of possibilities with those extra picks.

The more I read up on Roman, the more I'm excited about having this guy around. Capers can't say enough about him every article I read on him raves about his football mind....

Quote:
“What we did at Stanford was a direct reflection of what our players told us they could (do) and that’s kind of how we (do it) — put a big, broad system in and then start to see what your players tell you in practice, what they’re good at,” Roman said. “At then it starts to shift one way or another. To just say, ‘Here’s the system, here’s what we’re doing,’ we’ll never do that … the players direct where the system goes.”
http://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/2011/...-resurrection/


Quote:
In 2004, Capers, then the Texans head coach, examined his staff and decided the 49ers offensive coordinator would help mentor struggling quarterback David Carr, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 draft. Capers moved Roman from tight ends coach to quarterbacks coach – an unlikely title for a former defensive lineman at John Carroll University with scant hands-on experience with quarterbacks.

“He understood the total concept so well that I ended up making him the quarterbacks coach,” Capers said in a phone interview this week. “That was just because I felt he was the best guy for the job and he understood defense. He understood how to attack things. He not only knew the protections in the pass game, but he knew the route concepts.”
David Carr had a career-high 83.5 passer rating with Greg Roman as his quarterbacks coach in 2004. In two seasons with Roman as his quarterbacks coach, Carr had 30 touchdowns, 25 interceptions and an 80.5 passer rating--In his three other seasons as Houston’s starter, Carr had 29 touchdowns, 40 interceptions and a 71.7 rating.

I remember reading some articles in the past couple of months that Roman, not Harbaugh, was the X's & O's guy behind the operation..take it for what its worth.

I don't doubt that Roman is very influential, however, Harbaugh has been having documented success in the coaching ranks since 2002 and Roman only worked with him in 2009 and 2010. David Shaw was part of the brains at Stanford as welll, and he worked with Harbaugh since 2006.

49ers.com is doing a series of video interviews with the coaching staff that looks like it is going to be pretty good. They have a preview vid up now, go check it out!

John Clayton reported the other day that we are going to make a play to sign Ike Taylor. Clements also stated that he will be back as a Niner......take it for what its worth.

Don't really believe too much Clayton says, but I would love Taylor for the right price. Big, physical, blazing speed, and one of the better CBs in run support you'll find. We'll probably have to offer more that what the Steelers will but I like the fit.
