So it appears as if Jimmy Smith will be available at 48 after all....
I have to see it to believe it, though.
I still think he is a lock 1st round pick, but I wouldnt be surprised if he ended up on our team at the end of the 1st round. Am I the only one thinking Al will make a big move to replace Nnamdi(if he is gone)
We've had the one of the worst run defenses in the league for the past decade, if a big bodied DT falls (Wilkerson) or if Marvin Austin is available I think we need to look at them.
I doubt it after what Seymour and Kelly did last year, along with us signing John Henderson to a 8m contract. I can see us going DT later in the draft though in the 4-6 rounds to get a developmental guy. Im pretty sold on that we will go OL,CB or OLB in the 2nd depending on value.
Rumor is we are interest in Ben Ijalana who could fit at RT or OG for us. We also like Carimi, and he could be a possible prospect we trade up for in the draft if he falls in the late 20's. We also have worked out Kaepernick who could be a developmental QB who can sit behind Campbell for a year or 2.
Nnamdi officially not coming back, but I'm still not buying that we go CB in the 2nd or 3rd unless we trade up from Jimmy Smith. Hue already said he believes we have talent at CB young and old, and I think we can possibly go OL in the 2 picks. Something like this would make me very happy
2nd Orlando Franklin OT Miami
3rd Stefen Wisniewski C Penn State
4th Curtis Marsh CB Utah State
Does anyone here think Stan Routt is even a good #2 corner? Let alone ready to takeover #1?
I think he will go fine. He got thrown at alot since teams just refused to go at Nnamdi. Every CB gets beat every once in a while and the chances are higher when you have a guy like Nnamdi playing opposite of you since the other team has the WR Nnamdi isnt covering as the go to guy during the plays.
It is being reported that Mario Henderson and Khalif Barnes are gone. Both want to challenge for a LT spot(good luck with that). Also Langston Walker is considering retirement which is bad news for us. He did alright at RT last year and I was really hoping we would slide him to LG in place of Gallery.
Both Carimi and Smith are gone, so expect us to go Franklin, Ijalana or Wisniewski in the 2nd. I would not be against moving up for Bowers either. I have him ranked as a top 10 prospect, and if he were to pan out he would give us a even better dline.
