Jahvid Best ?

Lmao at thoughts of getting him in the 2nd round. Dude's gonna rape the 40 and won't be there past the 15th-20th picks.

2. If I didn't think he was gonna go pro before his injury, I sure as hell don't see him declaring now.

3. He needs to show me he won't just be another Reggie Bush

that's all I'm saying, and I LOVE this kid

Best declared for the draft:

I'd sure be excited if we drafted him, but if I was the GM that's not how I would use our top picks.

I agree, after he runs a blazing 40 he will cement himself as the 2nd running back taken and ensure he gets taken in the first.

Id like him with our second 1st rounder, and go OL with our first pick.

I definitely would be happy if we got him or Spiller. I doubt either happen though.
I agree on solid RT with the 1st and then depending on who's available with our 2nd 1st rounder Best could be an option there. I wouldn't pick him over a stud CB or pass rusher, but I wouldn't snatch a 2nd rounder with that pick if Best is available.

Now say Mays and Best are on the board when this pick comes up? Who would you want?

Best no doubt. It's not a Cal homer thing either, I wouldn't touch Mays in the first round.
He's originally from Vallejo so I'll be a homer and say yes. Here's a short list of what were drinking out here. Natalie Coughlin, CC Sabathia, Jeff Gordon Mac Dre & E-40. Sorry had to put 40 water and Mr. Furley on there. Honestly I'd rather have Spiller X's 10.

I hope he doesn't go to a team I hate. But I'm glad he declared.

Yeah, I just hope he doesn't go to any of the teams in our division, specifically the Cardinals

Meh, we got willis

Yeah I'm not worried about Best playing against us, but about him playing the other 14 games on the schedule

Actually he moved to Vallejo in between his junior and senior year of high school so he has barely been there. His family lives off Georgia St.
Jahvid Best! How bout it. i know he gets dinged up alittle every now & then but the guy has crazy speed we lack. Wouldn't be a bad 2nd rounder or a bad # 3 option for us.
the last speedster from Cal that we passed on still stings...Desean anyone? i really see best as a special team stand out & a nice option for when were up alot. lol if that every happens.
He won't be available by the time our 2nd rounder comes along.

You do not know that for a fact, who would have foreseen Desaun Jackson falling into the latter part of the second round.

I am a Cal season ticket holder, Best had a subpar junior season, ending with a brutal concussion hit, that took him out of college football. I actually think Best will drop to the mid second round.

The niners also could send a 6th or 7th to move up in the second, if they have him ranked that high and truly want him.
RB/KR Options

Quote:
Jahvid Best, California - Scouting Report
Height: 5-10. Weight: 194.
Projected 40 Time: 4.37.
Projected Round (2010): 1-2.
1/3/10: Jahvid Best has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Best is a talented player, but his small frame and durability issues could push him into Round 2. Still, he can't risk another injury-ridden season.

10/10/09: Drawing comparisons to Chris Johnson, Jahvid Best has 514 rushing yards, 11 receptions and nine touchdowns through five games. His YPC is an outstanding 6.2.

2/6/09: Jahvid Best could be targeted late in the first round if he runs a 4.3 at the Combine. Best had 1,580 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on an amazing 8.1 YPC. He also caught 27 balls for 246 yards and another score.

C.J. Spiller, Clemson - Scouting Report
Height: 5-11. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.34.
Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick.
1/3/09: If C.J. Spiller runs a mid-4.3 at the combine, he could be chosen in the first round to be utilized in a Felix Jones-type role. Spiller had 1,042 total yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008. He also scored on a kickoff return.

Noel Devine*, West Virginia
Height: 5-8. Weight: 175.
Projected 40 Time: 4.31.
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.
11/7/09: Someone will draft Noel Devine in Rounds 3-4 if he runs a fast 40. He's averaging 6.2 YPC and 8.2 yards per reception this year. He'll be seen as a Darren Sproles-type player.

2/6/09: There's a chance Noel Devine runs a 4.2 at the Combine. If that happens, he could be selected on Day 1. As a sophomore, Devine rushed for 1,289 yards on a 6.3 YPC. He also caught 35 balls for 185 more yards.

7/25/08: Noel Devine might be exciting to watch because of his blazing speed. His yards-per-carry average (8.6) is also astonishing. Unfortunately, he's nothing more than a third-down back and a kick returner, as his small size limits his NFL potential.

Joe McKnight*, USC
Height: 6-0. Weight: 200.
Projected 40 Time: 4.39.
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.
10/10/09: When Matt Barkley needed to put together a game-winning drive against Ohio State, he went to Joe McKnight early and often. McKnight even had some tough carries in between the tackles. His weakness is picking up blitzes, but that is something that can be taught.

2/6/09: Joe McKnight did a good job putting on some bulk. However, he carried the ball just 89 times in 2008. He was impressive when he did get the rock, rushing for 659 yards (7.4 YPC) and two touchdowns. He also caught 21 balls for 193 yards.

7/25/08: Joe McKnight has a lot of carries where he loses yardage, but he has the speed to break long gains - at the college level. I don't know how that'll work in the NFL. However, he does have blazing speed, so he should make for a good return specialist and third-down back.

Michael Smith, Arkansas
Height: 5-8. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.37.
Projected Round (2010): 5-6.
2/6/09: The blazing-fast Michael Smith rushed for 1,072 yards and eight touchdowns despite his small frame. He also caught 32 balls for 298 yards and two more scores.

Brandon James, Florida
Height: 5-7. Weight: 186.
Projected 40 Time: 4.33.
Projected Round (2010): 6-7.
10/10/09: Listed as a return specialist only. Brandon James, whose 40 will get some attention, returned two punts for touchdowns in 2008. He already has a kick return for a score this season

LaMarcus Coker, Hampton
Height: 5-11. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.36.
Projected Round (2010): FA.
5/21/08: The aptly named LaMarcus Coker was dismissed from Tennessee after failing his fourth drug test. You'd think he'd learn after failing three!

2007: LaMarcus Coker runs a 4.3 and led the Vols in rushing as a freshman with 696 yards. So, why is he all the way down here? Coker was suspended indefinitely in early August for violating Tennessee's substance-abuse policy. Who knows when he'll be back? However, one thing is clear - NFL coaches and general managers won't forget this come April 2009 or 2010.

These are all small/speedster RB/KR options. I only posted players with sub-4.4 fortys. I know that speed isn't the only issue here, but a lot of fans have been excited about C.J. Spiller. This shows that this years draft has a lot of speedy players who could be options at KR/PR. And this is only the RB's.

If the Niners could draft a combo player from the obvious RB/WR/CB spots, it'd be great to have that versatility as an option.
