I also like Von Miller.

Like both those guys, AB. Have you heard of Kerrigan? Trying to find more info on the dude.

I sure have heard of Ryan Kerrigan, I also like him alot. I see him as a 2nd rd pick more than a 1st like Miller and Romeus.


Strengths: A nice blend of burst, speed and power.

Weaknesses: Only weakness is his coverage. Not sure if he is a End or OLB at the next level.

Overall: Poised for a good year, he should be a 2nd round pick come april 2011.
CB and Center


linebacker (OLB or an upgrade over TKO if there's one too good to pass up, but preferably a monster OLB)
QB (may be higher [or lower] on my list depending on how Alex does)
C (only if we can find an upgrade over Heittman, otherwise I'd prefer a RG or RT if Davis bombs big time)
DL (stout NT or a good run stuffer/pass rusher to line up opposite Smith, whichever is better from the BPA)
WR (someone fast and flashy to complement Crabs and open up the field [and can catch the ball])

or of course BPA, if someone falls to us that has superstar written all over him, let's pull the trigger, the only position I would oppose drafting is TE.

that's my list in order of what we should address, but it also depends on what's available at our spot, for example I would take a very promising DL over what may look to be a mediocre corner and so on

I agree with most people that the DL, CB need to be drafted but some say OC but I think the 9ers should look into resigning Baas to a 3 or 4 year deal. He has really filled in nice. Additionally I think a WR should be drafted.. possibly a first rounder in Julio Jones will drop to us? On that note

I originally went from CB to now thinking these spots will need upgrading via draft or FA.

QB (or Vet QB as if any are available) - Highest Priority
FB - Medium Priority (vet or draft... Norris has to be upgraded
C - Medium Priority (It would be nice to get a C who can push the middle)
RG - High Priority (Snyder/Rachal/Wragge... RG will probably be weak spot on OL)
DE - Medium Priority (Someone to work with Soap/McDonald/backup Smith)
ILB Depth - Lowest Priority (If Spikes leaves we have Willis/McKillop/Bowman)
OLB - Highest Priority (If Lawson wants big bucks he isn't getting it... he is great on 1st and 2nd down but doesn't get a pass rush)
CB - High Priority (Clements, Spencer, Adams.. Brown.. we need someone else)
FS - High Priority (Goldson playing like he has and wanting big $ = High Priority (R.Smith doesn't do much for me)

As of now if we don't address any of these issues in free agency I would go:

1st - QB
2nd - OLB (Pass Rusher/Every Down LB)
3rd - CB
4th - RG
4th - FS
5th - C
6th - DE
6th - FB
7th - NT Depth
7th - ILB Depth

BPA except RB/MLB/TE.

Everyone is replaceable in my eyes other than Gore/V.Davis/Willis.

But if I have to name emergency positions:
S - both of our starts suck
OLB (can we finally get a pass rushing specialist on this team? Ever since we switched to the 3-4, we have never made it a priority to draft guys fitting the 2 most important spots (NT/Pass-Rush OLB). We got lucky Franklin really developed.)

For QB either I'd like to draft Luck or go the Veteran QB/late round flier route.

I actually think our need at CB may be exaggerated because of how bad our S's/lack of pass rush are. There is only 2-3 guys in the league at a given time that can be on an island and stop a WR. Great teams actually *gasp* support their CB's with safety over the top who can actually read a f**king play and a pass rush.

All I want is Harbaugh as our head coach and to do whatever it takes to get Andrew Luck. I cant take another year of Singletary and Smith.

1. QB
2. QB
3. QB
4. QB
5. QB
6. QB
7. QB

At least one of them has to be the right pick.
Can we draft an offensive co-ordinator by any chance? Almost anyone would be an improvement.
But honestly, I'd like to see us draft a DL in the second round and maybe another in the fourth of fifth, and in the first round a WR, a CB or a QB (depending on how this year works out). Now I now I just opened myself up to a swarm of A. smith fans, but let's be honest, if he cannot lead this team to either a above .500 record or a playoff spot, I think he'll be replaced. He is decent, but no better, no less and our goal is to win, not just be good enough. I will not accept mediocrity and niether should the organization (especially one with a history of being committed to excellence).
I would like to see us use our 1st round pick on a new owner. Then he could use our 2nd and 3rd round picks to draft a new head coach and offensive coordinator!

QUARTER-EFFING-BACK. Course we should of gotten last year too...
