I have been pondering over which players I feel the Niners should pick ever since the end of the season. I have had numerous different names for our slots but here is what my heart has concluded:
13. Charles Brown (OT), USC:
I actually like Brown better than Bulaga (short arms), Davis (trouble maker), and Campbell (gifted but lazy). Brown started out as a late 1st rounder but now he is definitely a hot commodity. He reminds me of a raw Ryan Clady. Bottomline, we need O-line help!
17. Maurkice Pouncey (C), Florida:
Yes, I wanted Brandon Graham (BEAST). Yes, I wanted Iupati (BEAST). But I went with the un-sexy pick because I just felt that Pouncey would one day LEAD our O-line to the promised land (Super Bowl). And a Guard could be had at later rounds. Trust me, I would love to have Graham or Iupati on our team!
49. Nate Allen (FS), South Florida:
Let’s bring in this ball hawk and move Goldson to SS. NFL is becoming more and more of a pass happy league and having Goldson and Nate Allen roam around the field will help our defense tremendously. Let’s get him, no matter what!
79. Cam Thomas (DT), North Carolina:
A Big boy that will anchor our D-line for a long time. Put him behind Aubrayo Franklin for about 2 years and have him just get stronger and bigger!
113. Marshall Newhouse (G), TCU:
He is quick on his feet (5.00 40-time @ 320lbs)… and excels in run game. Should help open up a lot a holes for Gore… And help push Chilo to become better.
182. Leroy Vann (WR/PR/KR), Florida A&M:
He would be valuable in the punt returns… Vann seems to have a knack for just going straight up after the catch…without getting hit! Could become one of the best punt return specialist in the game. Also a good insurance policy in case Ginn Jr has problem holding on to the ball.
206. Nate Byham (TE), Pitt:
Good blocking TE with pretty good all around game.
224. CB or LB
I have waited way too long for us to get back to the playoffs. Let's do this already!
