Tebow was over 6'2 and 236 (I thought he'd be at least 6-4)
Myron Rolle looked in outstanding shape for being out of football for a year. Cut with basically no fat that can be seen. 6'1 217 lbs (this kid will rise. Rhodes scholar with this work ethic)
Rolle is the safety prospect I want. Berry being my 1st choice of course, but since he's out of reach, I'm more impressed with Rolle than Thomas or Mays.
I like the value that Rolle would give us. In my opinion he'll be available in the 4th or 5th for us, which is tremendous value compared to Mays. Rolle is obviously a player of tremendous character, and should easily be able to direct our defense from the back end. Plus, he has the build that we look for in a SS and is a very sound tackler. He may have some athletic limitations in terms of coverage, but I think if he could polish up his technique he would be fine in that department. Solid prospect for the 49ers, and a guy I can easily see us drafting as Michael Lewis' long-term replacement. I'd be very excited about our safety duo for the future if we drafted Rolle.
For those of you who watched Tennessee a bit, is Dan Williams a prototypical up-tackle in a 4-3 or can he play on the nose? The reports have him as the former, but I like his size and everything suggests that he's improved. It wouldn't surprise me if the Niners went with both sides of the line with the first round picks even though I'm wishfully hoping Haden falls to 13.
