OT Tiers Drop-off after Williams)...Might need to pass on OT in the first round

OT Tiers Drop-off after Williams)...Might need to pass on OT in the first round

Everybody knows that Okung, Bulaga, and Williams are 1-2-3 in tackles (and Campbell and Davis are 4 and 5), but what is the difference in quality between them?

Personally, I think that the gap between Okung and Bulaga is not that large, with Williams fairly close to Bulaga. But after Williams, I think there is a big drop-off to Davis or Campbell.

Campbell might go much higher than he should due to measurables.

If the Top 3 are gone at #13, I say we wait for a RT in the second round or trade back.
Which is why it makes too much sense to trade for Baltimore's OT Jared Gaither.

I am just not so sure I want to trade a 1st round pick for Gaither. If we could package our 2nd rounder with something else, I would be for that.

Jared Gaither as a FA plus Joe Haden and CJ Spiller?
I think they should pass at #13 almost for sure. They will get a 2nd tier Tackle if they take one there. The top 4 - 5 could easily be gone. Why get a 2nd tier Tackle when they can get CJ Spiller at #13 and Brandon Graham at #17?

Get a Tackle in the 2nd round. You should be able to find a RT in the 2nd round. It's overrated to say you need a RT in the 1st round. In fact if you picking in the 1st that person should be able to play LT.

We so rarely agree on anything, but in this case, I'm with you 100%.

I would be open to that draft -Spiller and Graham would be a good draft as long as they put effort into getting Oline. I think we will come out of the draft with two starters - whoever they are. If we can get one more starter out of the draft it will be a good one.

If the top 4 OT's are gone, getting two impact players like Spiller and Graham would be phenomenal. Who do you think are the targets for a 2nd or 3rd round OT to fit the bill?

The next tier guys are

Vladimir Ducasse (rd 2)
Roger Saffold (rd 2-3)
Jared Veldheer (rd 2-3)
Jason Fox (rd 3)
Selvish Capers (rd 3)
Ciron Black (rd 3-4)

I really like Saffold and Veldheer. Both are very athletic guys
Jaguars Ebon Britton, 2nd round pick played well at RT. You can find RT's in round twol.

If the Niners got Spiller and Graham in round 1, they could package their 2nd and third rounder to move up for Sam Baker OT for RT.

Sam Baker? Who is that? You mean the OT for the Falcons?

I think he meant Charles Brown from USC.
I wouldn't mind Anthony Davis or Campbell at 17.Don't know if they'll last that long.

Has there been any legitimate sources stating Gaither is available other than that stupid Bleacher Report?

If you were Baltimore would you trade him for anything less than both our firsts?

I think Davis is the better of him and Campbell, but his actions sure make it tough to take him in the top 17. He's really turned off alot of people.
