Time for a Ready-To-Make-An-Impact Draft

This up and coming draft, the 49ers should not just be looking for talented players but rookies that are ready to make an immediate impact on the NFL next season. The last draft (with the exception of Crabtree), we haven't seen any impact players.

Take the Jets, with a rookie QB and rookie running back. Yes their defense is #1, but their offense has to be doing something right.

The league is changing..there is no more luxury time to sit rookies and learn.
On defense, Brandon Graham looks ready.

At WR, Shipley looks like he could play the slot early on. He might remind you of Anthony Gonzales from a couple years ago.

Also, Freddie Barnes could be a good value pick. Similar to Crabtree, he just knows how to get open. Level of competition might be a factor.

Lastly, I'd go with Golden Tate. He went over 100 yds in 9 games this season, including 200+ on two occassions. He was only kept out of the endzone twice this season. He kind of went under the radar, but he's going to be a solid pickup for someone.
I'll tell what will make an immediate impact.

1. An OT in the mold of a Ryan Clady or even a Michael Oher.

2. An OG in the mold of Steve Hutchinson.. Not a David Bass whose signature move is to pull around into the A gap look for someone to block and/or just fall down.

3. A stud DB, corner or safety since we could use either, that can also upgrade our return game.

So you would be happy with:

#13 OT Trent Williams or Anthony Davis

#16/17 OG Mike Iupati

#45 CB Javier Arenas

That would a great draft!!

I would also take Bulaga as an OT option.

I would really like it if they could figure out a way to make Arenas a few inches taller though

I would not like it in terms of pure excitement, but I know that this would be a great draft

That's exactly the draft I want. Followed by Norwood in the 3rd.

They have a top 3 Oline, that's what they do right. that's basically the difference between our 2 teams. We are better at WR and TE, QB is a wash, but the line makes the difference. They made that by taking an OT and interior lineman with 2 1st rounders. We are in position to do just that. I just have a hard time seeing Scotty spend that first on Iupati.

I would love it if we drafted two linemen in the first round. That is seriously my wet dream but it won't happen.

I don't know about his hips. But the guy racked up sacks and tackles for loss, was a team captain, and is athletic enough to block kicks. I'm really no expert and I haven't watched as much of these guys as many of you on this board, but I really feel like 3-4 OLB is one of the most over analyzed positions in the draft. Everyone wants guys that over 6'3" or are freakish athletes. I think you want productive DEs that are a little smaller and faster than average and play with power.
