The problem I have with the Spiller pick is that it's a luxury pick. I don't think the 49ers are in the position right now to be taking luxury picks in the 1st round. They are improving talent-wise, but the team still has holes to fill. The biggest holes are OT, OG, S, and CB.
With Gore in the backfield and a 3rd round pick invested in a running back last year in Coffee, it's not a necessity that we take Spiller.
Now, I would not be upset at all with the Spiller pick because he's a speed guy with the ability to return. I just think that building up the OL is something that has not been addressed and needs to be.
Offensive tackle and Iupati is still my ideal first round scenario.
Agreed. Don't waste a high pick on Spiller. I think Jahvid Best is better than Spiller. I would rather get a late 1st or early second for Best. Or just get a WR/PR/KR in rd 3-5.
By what standard is Jahvid Best better than CJ Spiller?
Because he plays in Northern CA?
