"Undersized in height. He's just like everett brown from last year. Scotty passed on him and he had way more pass rushing SKILLS than graham. For anyone to think we'd draft graham after passing on the likes of groves and brown in back to back years, CLEARLY doesn't follow our teams drafting habits. ESPECIALLY with the emergence of brooks and lawson."
I think you have a point but by the same token we probably won't take a guard cuz Scotty likes to find them in the 2nd. So what's that leave us with? Spiller? He could but then he's splitting carries with Frank. Earl Thomas? Maybe but the strong safety position really hasn't been a weak link on our team. He could take Jason Piere-Paul, totally different body type but a project.
So who do you think Scotty wants with his 2nd #1. My guess is Spiller cuz he makes an immediate impact on special teams but I'm kinda hoping he takes Iupati or Piere-Paul. I don't see too much point in drafting the position where you have a probowler all ready playing.
Originally posted by SWAGG-ER: Why is erryone so high on Graham...with one of our 1st round picks??? We have 4 decent to good pass rushers. Heck we finished with 44 sacks. The NFL leaders in sacks were the Vikes w/ 48. With Brooks having clearly a ton of potential that actually turned into sacks once given the chance to play and lawson getting better each year, AND haralson 1 season removed form an 8 sack year and spending most of this season injured......where do we play Graham? You don't spend a top 20 pick on a position you are fairly stacked at.
Why not just get O'brien Schofield in like the 5-7th round, IR him for the year and go to town with him in 2011?
Because the team had 44 sacks, but zero pressure in the must win games. Look at the sacks vs teams that finished above 8-8 and we had next to no sacks. The Niners need a good pass rush, with a 3-4, several good OLB's are the way to go.
