This brings up an interestiing point. For the record I dont think we should or will exit the first round without our future right tackle. But I have seen the occasional mock where two very talented potential top 5-10 picks make it back to us due to needs of certain teams above for specific positions. For example I saw a draft that said we could grab Hayden and Spiller in the first...with Hayden taking a free fall and Spiller really on being taken 1 or 2 later than most think. So my question is this. To add another layer to the original post. What 2 guys would have to be there for you to say, hell with it, I will get a RT in the second round?
The only players I want in the first round are, in order of preference: 1. Graham, 2. Spiller, 3. Best RT available (Davis, Bulaga, Williams), 4. Iupati. Hence, my mock bein the way it was. If Spiller is not there, take Oline first and then Graham. But if he is there, I think it is worth it to take both Spiller and Graham and then O-line in rounds 2 an 3.
If Spiller is not there, I'd want to trade back from 13 to the 20's and grab a the best RT at #16 and take Graham with next pick in the 1st round. Then take Jahvid Best and Asomoah in the second (using the extra pick from trading back),and then the best FS/SS available in the 3rd.
I just want Brandon Graham on this team, period. So if Spiller is there too, we should get them both. But ultimately Iwant Brandon Graham to find his way onto the niners.
As much as I love Iupati, I can't fault you for taking Graham. I love me some Graham too even though it's not a position of need. But he is a true stud.
I just think taking Graham and the second best guard in the second round makes us better than Iupati and another OLB. Who's to say Asomoah won't become a pro-bowl caliber guard? But I believe Graham will be the probowl OLB we've needed on this team since we went to the 3-4.
