F.O. Offensive Line Analysis

so is offensive line our #1 priority??


YES.

Nice find. We must upgrade the o-line 4 sure.
Now that was a set of statistics. We clearly need help. Lets go McSing - get us some help.
The line sucked last year. Notice how gore ranked the 9ers 4th in open yards, while they were almost last in every other rund blocking category.
This is exactly why we need CJ Spiller in the 1st round. CJ will make a big difference in our run game. I'll say it again we need to fix the o-line first this year. I was disappointed we didn't draft Michael Oher last year, but I could understand why we took Crabtree. This year we must fix the o-line and the secondary.

If there is anything I am sick of hearing it's that. Look if we truly wanted Oher we should have traded back into the 1st when he dropped.

I'm sure it would have cost us to much to trade back into the 1st round to pick up Oher. We end up trading our second round pick the the Panthers for their 1st round pick this year.
It's a given that we're going to take a tackle in the 1st. The question becomes do we have to draft a guard in the 1st and I say hell no. You're passing on one maybe 2 prospects at best.

Spiller or Haden, Trent Williams, Vladimir Ducasse or Pouncey is a better draft than Williams, Iupati, insert secondary help.

For those Zoners who think the offensive line needs to be completely overhauled, here is a mock draft that might float your boat:

First, Haden is probably not going to be there with the 2nd first rounder.

Second, Nate Clements isnt a starting NFL CB?

That site's credibility just took a dump.

Berry drops to 15 and we don't take him??

.

Was he not benched last year?
funny how I post this OL analysis and Matt Barrows has it on his blog less than 24 hours later...

where's the love??? or some credit????




p.s. the mock that is listed above is crap and should be in a different thread for unrealistic mock drafts...

I obviously didn't pay much attention to the other picks, just the fact that they had 3 OL going to the Niners. If Berry is there at #13, he would be my pick. Haden wouldn't be bad there either in ADDITION to a healthy Clements. Shouldn't be making these posts while working. It messes with your head......
