I guess Frank Gore goes to the bench?
Why not trade up from the 2nd round to get Tim Tebow? Can you guys imagine that Wild cat formation!!!!!??????
I don't think you have to have a great offensive line to have a great offense. It can't be bad, but an average offensive line would probably suffice.
Frank Gore is getting up there in age and injuries. Do you really trust Frank Gore to be the main back for 16 game. Heck he hasn't even been able to stay healthy this year.
There isn't a set formula for winning, and I find it hilarious when people think they know the "blueprint" for winning, if there was one I think every team in the NFL would have figured it out by now.
The closest thing to a blueprint I have ever seen is to draft the BPA available unless that player isn't an upgrade over someone already on the roster, avoid injuryand pick up impact free agents.
Now, honestly the only players that I think our BPA over Bryant and Spiller, are Berry, Suh, McCoy, and Okung. If those players are on the board (unlikely) then sure go after them, but genus do you honestly think Trent Williams, Joe Haden, Taylor Mays etc are a better player than Bryant or Spiller?
It isn't like we can't fill our need for OL, S and OLB through FA or later in the draft.
