49ers | Could move up in draft

You can't argue taking a QB with people who support Alex Smith. You'll hear every excuse in the book about why he hasn't done anything to keep us from drafting another QB. They will also use other positions of need as excuses, as if a franchise QB is nothing important.

Clausen will be the real deal. People in here believe you don't need a franchise QB to win, so of course this scenario will be met with opposition. I will be at the draft party, and if this does go down, I can all but guarantee most people will be very happy even though when they come back to post here on the Zone, they will b*tch.

Move up only for Okung at 5. BPA for next pick. There are a lot of better QB prospects coming out next year.

At what number are we drafting next year?

If Smith fails, probably top 10.

Just for the record, I think Clausen makes zero sense here. We have a chance to see what Alex can do with the same OC 2 years in a row. He has a 1 year contract. Why throw a wrench into it by drafting a QB? It ruins 2 QB's on your roster instantly. You ruin Smith because no matter how well he does, the future QB is waiting in the wings. And you ruin Nate Davis, because he will never get a chance if you pick another qb in a higher round. There will be QB's in next years draft, and by then these questions will be answered. If Alex does well, resign him. If he doesn't, you can pull him late this season and see if Davis can do anything.

I'm all for a Oline first round.

best OT available and Iupati

and what if smith fails? im not saying i want that to happen but its a possibility.

Still think we have to finally fix the oline ... still.
No one is going to win the Alex/Clausen debates

you cant be serious

claussen is not even that great of a prospect bad attitude cockiness and maturity issues not great work ethic small hands (3rd smallest in combine history) next year they are 4 to 5 qbs better than claussen

and if smith succedes what do we do we have 2 qbs we might as well get an o line that is at least decent this year and if alex does good we dont waste a first round pick otherwise we will givve our new qb in a position to succeed really its a no brainer

LOL.

Maybe it wasn't such a great idea for the Yorks to get rid of Scot M. My guess is after the draft we are going to miss him a lot. This is going to be really bad.

I wouldn't pick that guy if he came to us at #13 or #17. I doubt I would pick him at #49. But the 49ers these days don't make sense.
Oh god, we need olinemen! ...Not another QB.
