I all but guarantee that Scott will NOT choose Spiller, even if available at 17, in the 1st round. For the same reason he will not draft Iupati in the 1st.
Scott makes selections in the draft based on his preconceived formula. He doesn't choose Guards until the 2nd at earliest. Scott also stays away from RB's in the 1st few rounds as well.
Scott will stick to his formula regardless of what makes sense. The 1st is for QB's, Dlinemen, OT's, CB's.
Picks like Vernon Davis were all Nolan, when he had final say. I don't believe Scott likes taking skill positions early, and only chose Crabtree lastyear because of his slide.
I am calling it, Scott will pass twice on Spiller.
Based on what ? Can you tell me which OG's that we could have drafted in the 1st in the past ?
Scott has come out and stated that interior linemen have a lower value in his mind, and that he would not likely ever pay a FA of our own looking for a large payday (IE let Smiley walk when he was playing at a PB lvl with us), that he was unlikely to ever bring in a FA starting Guard unless it was for a deal, and that the position did not warrant a 1st round selection.
It's rumored Scot had pushed for Hutch when the Hawks took him and that was a Ted Thompson pick, one of Scot's mentors. While Scot does not believe in paying OG's 50 million dollar contracts, if he think Iupati can be every bit as dominant IMO he would strongly consider him.
