One Thing is for Sure...

The 49ers don't believe in the word "finesse." This team will hit you like a Mack truck! Leave you black and blue. This team is now officially built in Mike Singletary's image! He said during today's press conference to introduce Safety Taylor Mays, "I want speed, quickness and power. And I want that with an attitude."

This tells me that the Yorks are sold on Singletary! This is a good thing.
You gotta love it! The Niners are going to hammer people on both sides of the ball. This is going to be fun to watch.

Quote from Nate Byham, the TE we got from Pitt:

On run blocking being his forte:
“That’s what I pride myself on. I like to bloody noses. I don’t shy away from contact. I’m going into the hole and I’m trying to hit somebody. I think that’s what makes me unique. There’s not too many tight ends these days that want to go in there and try to hurt somebody. I’m trying to inflict pain when I’m in there as a tight end. I’m not trying to get in someone’s way. I’m excited to be a part of the hard-nose offense.”

I love it

One other thing for sure. Mays needs to live in the film room. That guy needs to become a student of the game 24/7. He needs to learn everything about tendency's, schemes, etc. He needs to develop a much stronger sense for the game so that his football IQ/instincts can match his physical prowess.
i called for top 2-3 OT in draft plus Iupati. Well, there were a lot of folks that laughed at that, but that's what we got. I also posted long and loud last yr we needed an OT and OG. That didn't happen then. It sure as heck happened this yr, and once the first day was over, so was my draft, because after that , i ididn't care who we picked. The mays pick (yeah, the same guy who ran down his college coach just after we drafted him) is a case in point. The 4.32 speed is nice, he hits like a truck, but then he goes on vacation, or drifts, or whatever. Inconsistent, got an attitude, and is definitely immature. Bring on BigMike. If he can turn this kid, then we REALLY had a helluva draft; bad actors i never liked(ie RAIds), and this kid started off with a bang...a bad one. Hopefully his wits end up matching his talent, and also hopefully he gets it and plays all 6o mins. We'll see. But after #11(i had guessed we had to go to #8 to get one of top 2 OTs), and iupati at 17, i was one happy camper, and i don't care who anybody else drafted.

The winner in this draft? Obviously, you ask around the league and anyone will tell you Alex Smith. Now we see what kind of qb we drafted...5 yrs ago. It is criminal we draft #1 pick in draft and wait 5 yrs to protect him. But that is now water under the bridge, Baalke did the right thing and got us an OL, and things are well with the 49er world. Actually with that 2nd rd pick, i would have loved jordan shipley, who will be an all pro within 3 yrs.
