It really depends if he comes out. He's been dinged a bit this year, and most top level LT's these days are staying in for their senior year. I don't expect him to come out.
As for Robinson, I think he's an excellent playmaker. At the same time, the Niners have a great secondary (the best unit on the field for the team this season...by far), so I do not see any moves to pick up a guy in the back four. And, he's probably 5'10", which is a tough sell for me when WR's are getting bigger around the league. And, this team likes 6'+ CB's on the roster.
At RT, I think they'd look heavily at Ciron Black, if he is still on the board. He's a bigger, road-grading OT compared to the more nimble guys like Okung, who are better suited at LT. Black might still be on the board at 18 or so. By the early twenties, he's almost assuredly going to be gone.
MadDog, couple thoughts/questions.
-You say we wouldn't go for a player in the secondary. I have to believe that if Carolina really struggles and grants us a top5/10 pick, basically in position to pick up Berry, we would really have to consider him. Just like you pointed to earlier, Berry and Suh are clearly the two best prospects in college football today. If either is available I think we go after them, even though it could be argued that neither one plays a position of major need.
-Also you said Cody looks fat/unmovable. Is this a good or bad thing? Fat=bad, unmovable=good, fat and unmovable = ???.
-Anthony Spencer? Why so much love for a guy with 4.5 career sacks, who plays behind one of the strongest D-lines in the game? Sounds like another TBC experiment to me.
-Is Suh a potential NT in our system? Doesn't seem like we ask the Nose to take up double teams as much as some other 34 teams.
-Slightly off the draft topic, what did you think of Brooks' play this weekend? I think he might be better than he's been given credit for.
-Where does Ciron Black rank amongst the OTs taken last year?
-Finally, do you think these are needs that can be answered in FA? Which ones can/can't?
