That is why I believe he will still be available when the Niners select and why he will still be the 4th and maybe 5th OT taken. He is great for the Niners but Buffalo, KC, and Oakland all need a LT.
What I have read and heard mentioned his increasing comfortable feeling at LT as he played through the season. He just got better. You are right that the tape will show where he should play, but for us the man is playing RT!
I still get shivers with a Staley-Iupati-Heitmann-Rachal-Williams offensive front.
That is why we want the Rams to take Suh so Bradford drops to Wash and Clausen to Seattle. This way KC starts with picking an OT and not Wash. One slot means that much in this draft if we really want Williams. So KC would pick Okung, Sea Clausen, Cleveland Haden, Oakland Campbell, Buffalo Bulaga and SF Williams...
If the Rams take Bradford first, then damn it! Then I see Wash taking Okung and KC taking Bulaga allowing Berry and Haden to drop. Seattle would take Clausen, Cleveland Berry, Oakland Campbell, Buffalo Williams, and SF Haden., not Davis.
I never would have thought that even the first pick could make that much of an impact on who we would pick.
This will definitely be the most exciting draft in a long time...cool.
