How do Trent Williams and Anthony Davis compare?
If the Niners do slip down a bit and miss out on one of those top tier RT (that sounds like a bit of an oxy-moron really), would they target a 2nd round RT or just try to find an upgrade in FA?
Tony Pashos was supposed to be a big upgrade, but never seemed to get a chance to be familiar with the schemes.
Davis is a LT or RT at the next level, but Williams is probably going to be limited to the right side. They both are similar in size, about 6'6", 325-330, but Davis is the better athlete, with the bigger upside.
However, Williams is the harder worker, and is the better run blocker. Williams would be a huge upgrade in helping the run game, right away. He's the best run blocking tackle in the 2010 draft.
If the Niners are on the clock, let's say with the 15th pick, and both Davis and Williams are off the board, my guess is that they will reach for the next best OT on the board, Bulaga or Iupati or Campbell (I think he's too raw for their interest).
I'd be shocked if the Niners do not use their first first round pick on a RT. I sincerely doubt they are heading down the FA path again.
