Consequences of Drafting Spiller

I'm really hoping we pick up C.J. Spiller. I'd be disappointed if we don't or can't.

That said, if we draft him what will happen to our roster?

Frank Gore
Glen Coffee
Michael Robinson
Moran Norris

Do we cut MRob, one of our best special teamers? Could we go with one less receiver if Spiller is our dedicated return man instead of carrying Spurlock on our roster for half the season before cutting him? Is Arnaz Battle gone yet?

MRob maybe listed as 3rd on the depth chart but he's really a ST and yes, teams do have guys on the rosters who are just special teamers.

Moran Norris is a FB and will likely be gone next year. He's a FA, we've got Brit Miller, we've signed a FB to a future contract and we'll probably end up drafting one. That leaves us Frank Gore and Glen Coffee as the two backs.

Coffee isn't starter material in my opinion. Besides we may end up trying to use him as trade bait to land Cromartie. That would leave us with Gore and whomever we drafted.

If we don't trade Coffee then we'll have Gore, the rookie, and Coffee.

Drafting Spiller immediately makes Battle expendable.
Get a starter on the OL with our other #1 (Haden or Berry falling changes things)
OL, DB, WR, BPA in the later rounds
We'll get that spark our offense and special teams is missing


Remember... all our losses were by 7 points or less (except 2)

I wouldn't mind Spiller. The only consequence I see is we don't address the other need(s) of the team such as OG, S, OLB, CB etc... assuming we use our other first rounder on a tackle.

I'd love to get Spiller and fix our PR and KR problems. Also, Gore is going to be 27 and Spiller can sit behind him for a couple of years and then move in and we don't miss a beat.
we would have the most dangerous one two punch in the backfield in the nfl

Oh look, yet another Spller thread.
if we draft Spiller I will post naked pics of myself.
Playmakers are playmakers. Adding Spiller would really help this team. I just don't think he'll be on the board at 13.

Where do you have him going that early?

This classifies as a consequence.

When I look at the top 12 I just dont see a team that will draft Spiller. Seattle isnt going to take him at 6. That is way too high for a team that needs a QB and an OT in the worst way. You mentioned Denver but I would be shocked to see that given the fact that they took Moreno last year.

I believe the only way Spiller goes before #13 is if a team like Miami moves down and a team with a RB need moves up. What is actually more likely now is that the Niners will not have one of the top 4 OTs to choose from. Mayock thinks they all could be gone by pick 9.
