so what made you feel that you had to say it again. Michael Crabtree is the best player in the nation. We get another #1 next season. That alone is a very good draft. Everyone else is just gravy. Get over your negativity.

You tell em EZ and we're bringing back the OLD/New Uniforms! Red, White and Tan Baby! Team of the DEcades returns!

Day 1 A
Crabtree and a Future 1. Great

Day2 Was Dennis Ericson directing this draft. holy moly.
Also everyone is forgetting, we may get a DE and OT out of the Undrafteed Free Agents that didn't get the call? Hopefully we are the phones right now signing those UDFA's!

Hmm let's see if we can get 2 more first downs a game that's at least equal to two sacks a game. See a sack doesn't mean that the other team gives you back the ball, but a first down MEANS you keep the ball, which is way more important. Now that we have Crabtree, we have so many more chances to keep the ball.
Solid draft. Got the one guy I was really excited about in Crabs. He was arguably the best talent in the draft and we haven't had a real #1 WR since TO. We now have that.. Would have liked to have more picks, but oh well; like McC said, there really wasn't that much talent in this draft and guys we were targeting in round 2 were picked by NE (an aside, thanks GB for f**king us once again by trading to the Pats, who f**ked us last year. I was joking with my roommate that GB would trade their #9 pick to someone who wanted Crabs just to spite us.)

Anyways, we got a good RB for the 1-2 punch, the next TED LB, a physically talented project QB, a beast of a blocking TE, and some depth at DL and S. A lot of people forget that our D played very well the last half of the season after the big-sub/nickle left with Nolan. Plus, we have unproven Balmer who figures to have a bigger role this year. We have a ton of young DBs on the roster right now too, so it makes sense to see how they perform before taking one early. Haralson really came on late last year and Lawson should be healthy and not having to worry about stupid position changes. OL would have been nice, but they also played much better last season after Sing took over and put Rachal in at RG. Marvell Smith, if healthy, will do fine at RT. Snyder and Wragge are capable backups at T and G. Frankly, I'm surprised more people didn't take Haralson's extension last week as a sign that we would be going somewhere else in the draft.

Maybe the powers that be were hung over from a Crabtree-related all-night bender. I can see it now, around 4am --

"O-Line? Don't need them! We got Crabtree! This is what I think of drafting O-Line! :drops pants:"

B-/C+
A......

You can get OLB/OT after June 1st cuts or in 2010.

Manny Lawson will rush the passer this year. Haralson is a good pass rusher on the other side.

Marvel Smith and Adam Snyder will be fine for 1 year.

Cant solve all positions in 1 offseason. I think OLB depth is the main issue but who knows what can happen....Julius Peppers perhaps?

I felt like an OT in the first round was the best choice, but then Crabtree was available. When you think about it, our O did pretty decent with Snyder in there, so currently, we have Smith, Snyder, and Simms, which should be good for 09'. The main ??? here are the injuries to Marvel Smith.

I agree where we lack serious depth in OLB, but obviously we will acquire 1-2 more via UFA... I am still really confused, but overall pretty happy
The main concern is OLB....guess we will have to wait and see if they can land a Jason Taylor/Julius Peppers/etc. before 2009.
Re: Not drafting OT

I think they like Jacob Bender who is on the roster as a late season pickup at OT. They have stated they like the way he block, move, and use his body. This training camp will be important to see if he can unset Syder from being the backup OT. He is 6'6" and 315#

They also have Joe Toledo, a former 4th round pick at OT who has not yet been thru a full training camp/preseason due to injury...maybe destined for the practice squad for developmental depth. He is 6'5" and 315#

I give it an A....i liked all the picks

Crabtree: I don't have to explain.

Coffee: I think he is a solid back...we don't need him to carry the load...just spare Gore for us

McKillop: could be a solid ILB if he learns from Spikes....and should be a good SP teams contributor this year and start when Spikes retires

Davis: He is talented...and i believe that Johnson can coach him up and make him a good player

Pascoe: A good blocking TE that can come in and catch the ball if he needs to

Taylor: A lot of upside...this was a high reward low risk pick...nothing to complain about here

Jean-Francois: has potential to be as good as Dorsey....Sing can get the best out of him and he can be a very good NT if he gets bigger

i like the draft and i think the niners can still get a back up OT in FA

DEf an A. Morons in this forum think we don't have a pass rush, but we do. Two first next year give us a great chance to move up in the first and get that franchise QB. Very good move there. Tebow, McCoy, OR Bradford. Great move.


Someone who wants to take Tebow as a "franchise" QB calling people morons. We could trade up to get Tebow if we are looking for a franchise H-back.

Speaking form a Db's coach perspective...Crabtree alone makes this draft a B+, the guy is a freaking nightmare to cover, you can roll coverages his way etc but his quickness out of breaks make him a nightmare, not to mention his dang hands are like big ol catcher gloves. the other pick i really like is RJF, he has all the talent to come in and START, it is up to Singletary to bring it out of him and his DL coach to coach up his technique, but the sky is the limit for this kid, overall i am very pleased with this draft.

Where the hell have you been? I haven't seen you in months!!
