RT is a huge need for us and there are a lot of tackles who can go around the time our first pick is...of course if Chicago wins right now that likely means the Saints take a dive against Carolina and we wind up picking around 15-20 with our first pick.
RTs possibly available Brian Bulaga, Anthony Davis, Bruce Campbell and Trent Williams.
I would say any of those guys would seem like a good pick at that spot without it being a reach. If all of those guys are gone I certainly hope we don't reach out of need...but I'd have a hard time thinking all those guys are off the board when we pick but you never know.
Completely agree. There is NO WAY we will roll the dice and hope that we can find a quality OT in the later rounds.
Baas, Chilo and Snyder were all second rounders and most would argue they they aren't getting it done.
Guarantee that if Bulaga, Davis, Campbell or Williams are there with our first selection, the pick will be made.
With the second first rounder, I'd love Haden but he'll probably be gone. Warming up to Spiller who would play the Percy Harvin role for the Niners.
