Buzzkillington! Was I in the Idaho locker room? I have no idea. But the scouts say that he has "the footwork to be an NFL LT"

He is elite. Whoever drafts him -- and I HOPE we're smart enough to do it -- will be extremely happy.

I'd be happy toget him too no doubt...but NOT with so many talented skill position players available at 13. Maybe trade back to 23-27 and get him. Im not saying that I wouldnt want the guy on my team, he's a stud and that goes without saying...my point is that its not going to happen at 13.

Its just too far of a reach. He isnt rated on Scout Inc or Kiper as a top 25...wouldnt it bother you if the niners reached so far for a guard??

I would expect him to be long gone by then!!! This guy is flying up the board, we may need to worry about getting him with our 1A.

what boards? Kiper and scout dont list him as a top 25 talent
Love your draft. Only thing move I wouldn't make is the Leon Washington move. I would make that move if he didnt have that devastating injury. I doubt he will be back to his old form next year. Maybe never. Not worth the price he is asking to find out the answer to that question.

Thanks! How about Reggie Bush? He is interchangeable in my mind... I just think Washington comes at a cheaper price and will recover -- plus he fits Raye's system (whatever that is)
very good draft but I seriously want either Spiller in the first , Best in the second or McCluster in the 3rd as a change of pace / KR in place of Leon Washington. I believe we need to take a chance with one of our first round picks since we have two. I'd love to get Spiller but I would settle for one of the other two.

I'd take Best if he were there in the 2nd round and McCluster if he was there in the 3rd. I just think these players will go before our picks and Spiller will be gone by our second pick. We go with our biggest need -- O-Line -- with the first pick. We can't afford luxury picks with this big of a need. CJ Spiller will run backwards before he has to go forward with the line we have now.

he is an elite prospect and is a mauler and can pass protect he is close to a sure thing as it gets and if we manage to get him with his 1st round pick (either one ) i would be extremely happy

cbs and nfl draft scout have him at 17 best prospect in the draft he hasnt allowed a sack all year

What is everyone's opinion on locking up all those guys (Franklin, Willis, Vernon, Manny)? Can we get that done, cap wise, etc? I hope so. They are guys I want around for a while.

Yea, we have like 50 M in cap space, we are good to go. Too bad it's a little bit of a weak FA because we have SO much cash to be aggressive with. But, the question really lies with Would the Yorks fork out the cash?!?
