Only if Davis pans out. The guy has alot of Jonas Jennings in him.

Jonas was a p***y, Davis is a mauler. I've got no doubts what so ever.

Jonas was a mauler who happened to be a p*ssy as well. Maulers at tackle actually have the highest bust ratios simply because many of them can't stay in shape and injuries bog them down.
I gave them a B+ for the first 2 picks, add in the trade for Ginn for a 5th round pick which I think was a A+ move!!! This brings my grade up to A- so far.

Very excited about day 2!!

Go Niners
Not what I predicted, but exactly what I was hoping for. So far, so good, really excited for the 2nd and 3rd rounds...

If we had stay put at 13 and Pittsburg had of jumped ahead of us, I bet youd be singing a different tune. If they take Davis at 11, we dont get a OT in the first. In hindsight Bulaga must have been last resort contigency plan. Just think how it would have felt to have two first round picks, and not address the weakest position on the team.

Anthony Davis was obviously a high targeted prospect. Im thinking he was top 5 on our draft board. Just from the interview with Davis after the draft, you could tell that he and Sing had something special. So what we trade a 4th rounder to guarantee we land a top 5 prospect. There was too much to lose if another team trades in front of us to pick him. I think tomorrow you will realize how brilliant a move it was.

Aaahh, not necessarily. I think if Davis wasn't there at #13, Bulaga would've been. And besides if we missed on one of the top 3 OT's in the 1st, there's always good talent in the 2nd. Like Bill Belichick said in his interview, the 2nd round is just another 1st round. If you didn't notice Brown, Campbell, Duccasse and Saffold are still available.

What Im saying is that we valued A. Davis much higher than we did Bulaga. If Davis were gone at 13, I think we pass on Bulaga. Its logical to me to trade away a 4th rounder to guarantee landing a super talent at a position of need. If Bulaga were the next OT on our draft board, and he was rated much lower than Davis, then we would not have gotten the best value at 13.

I understand that there are OTs remaining that are very servicable. None of those prospects have the talent and potential of Davis. In order to set up our O-line for future dominance, Baalke pulled the trigger to get his man. Maybe it was a little too aggro for some people, but you cant argue with the result.

You probably think that Davis was falling to us at 13, and maybe he would have. But if we valued his services that much, then its fine with me to move up to get him.

Stales/Iupati/Baas/Heitmann/Davis

Tude to spare on THAT Line.

I think this is the best iteration because it puts Veteran presence on the LT spot and on the Right interior. This to me is the best possible scenario, because it gets Heitmann out of Center and back to Guard(he was a solid Guard before he moved to Center) where he can help Baas before the snap and Davis afterwards. He does gravitate to his Right after all so take advantage of that and get Baas at Center where he either OWNS it or . I'm tired of waiting around for the Line to "get it". Yes it takes an average of 3 years for a Lineman to "get it", but that guy has never had a shot at the position he was drafted for. Yeah alot of that is due to Heitmann but we CANNOT have our QB get killed by someone coming free up the middle right past our Center again. That cannot and sure as F*CK better not happen again.I still blow a gasket just thinking about that fat f*ck going WWE on Alex when he OBVIOUSLY wasn't goint anywhere. That crap was intentional as hell.

Personally, I don't want Baas anywhere near our line, keep Rachel in there, he improved during the season last year and is a young guy. Baas sucks.
I would say A. It would be A+ if they didn't have to trade up for Davis.
