Source: Trent Baalke to Lead SF 49ers Draft Day Attack- ESPN

Quote:
Answers are beginning to surface about how the 49ers plan to handle next month's draft without their general manager Scot McCloughan.

San Francisco's director of player personnel Trent Baalke will lead the 49ers into a critical draft in which the team is scheduled to have the 13th and 17th overall picks, according to a league source.

Baalke has a strong reputation around the league and many expect that San Francisco will be able to march on successfully. He is recognized as a strong and capable talent evaluator.

The 49ers and McCloughan must also figure out a resolution as to their current situation before any other issues can be addressed.

Sources said McCloughan has been dealing with personal issues and the 49ers want him to be able to concentrate on those indefinitely. The organization is said to have been bracing for it for days and believes it is well prepared for the draft.

The issue will draw considerable attention this week, as 49ers officials arrive in Orlando, Fla., for this week's NFL owners meetings.

I keep hearing reports back and forth that it's going to be Gamble rather. Now this one says Baalke. Either way, it doesn't really matter to me, as long as whoever is doing it makes the right picks.

Trent Baalke enters his sixth season with the 49ers and his third as the team’s director of player personnel after being appointed to the position in February of 2008. In his 13th NFL season, Baalke oversees both the college and pro personnel departments.

Prior to being named director of player personnel, Baalke served as the Western region scout for the 49ers for three years. He joined San Francisco after spending four years on the Washington Redskins scouting staff, his last (2004) as the club’s college scouting coordinator. From 2001 to 2003, Baalke served as Washington’s national scout, traveling throughout the country in search of rising talent.

Before joining the Redskins, Baalke spent three seasons (1998-2000) as a scout with the New York Jets.

He previously held the position as the athletic director at Shanley (Fargo, ND) High School. Before his stint at Shanley, Baalke was the defensive line/strength and conditioning coach at South Dakota State (1990-95), where he helped promote former Pro Bowl guard Adam Timmerman and current NFL kicker Adam Vinatieri to NFL scouts.

Baalke cut his coaching teeth as a graduate assistant and defensive line coach in 1989 for North Dakota State. He helped play a role in the team finishing with a 14-0 record and a Division II National Championship, while also working with defensive lineman Phil Hansen, who went on to play 11 seasons for the Buffalo Bills.

A double major at Bemidji State (MN), Baalke received his bachelor’s degree in health and physical education. He went on to earn his master’s degree in secondary education and sports administration while coaching at North Dakota State. Baalke played outside linebacker and was a two-time All-Northern Sun Conference and an All-Mid West Region honoree at Bemidji.

Trent and his wife, Beth, have two daughters, Katy and Cassie. The family resides in Loveland, CO

Well how much different do you think a Baalke draft will be from a Scott one? If Scott isn't coming back I doubt he feels obligated to stick to the big guy philosophy, unless it's his philosophy too.
championship

Looks like Randy Coultures non-steroided brother.
It really wouldn't take a genius to select the first two rounds since most will follow the experts mock drafts. We all know that selecting draft picks is a crap shoot at best and if you follow the experts mock draft, you've got just as good a chance of making the right selection.

Where it becomes interesting is from the 3rd round on. Here's where the scouts earn their money. If your scouts have been doing their homework, then you go with what your scouts tell you.
Just dont f**k it up Baalke
