2010 NFL Draft Recap: Ten Biggest Steals

Sweet...steals even before they take the field...
I was originally critical of the Bowman pick, not because I did not think he was a good player as he was certainly good value where we got him but I was worried where he would fit in our 3-4 defense. Now I feel good about the pick as I think he can play a little bit at every LB spot in the 3-4 (including outside) and I do think he can put on the weight to be a "Ted" down the road. Just a very good football player. I talk to some Penn State people and they rave about him and I went back and watched the Penn State-USC Rose Bowl game and Bowman stood out. He may have been the best defensive player on the field (for both sides) that day. A very good, sound tackler who closes well, has very good instincts and does a nice job of shedding blocks.
don't we have to see how good these guys are before we call them steals?

I think you have to wait and see on paper mays and B maybe steals but until they take the field and produce no one can say for sure.

As Chris Berman would say thats why they play the game...

Isn't that Trindon Holliday? I would look like a beast next to him, and I'm 6'0 180!
i think the best was steal Mays better than bowman.

Agreed

If you were rating the 49ers draft just based on the first four picks I would give us a A+.

You did, I was just hoping for a cornerback and really couldn't see Bowman as a "Ted" but yeah he was a great pick, great value. I talk to two differen't people who follow Penn State like I follow the 49ers and they just raved about Bowman. I talked to a few draft people about Bowman and they all said he was a 2nd rd talent and one said he was a first round talent. Went back and watched the USC-Penn State Rose Bowl game; Bowman stood out! Navorro Bowman will be a player for the 49ers.
