Honestly, I wouldn't sweat that at all if Harbaugh sees him as "the guy". He looks good to me and I don't really care if he's considered a draft day reach if we got him and he became a franchise QB. How many #7 overall picks would we all trade for Rodgers, Brees, Manning, Brady, Rivers, etc, etc...?
same. If we think he's "the guy", that means possibly a number of other qb-desperate teams also see him that way so even trading down to mid/late 1st is a risk.
I'd rather see a scenario where we can get him and also a quinn/dareus/miller/peterson but with our spot in the 2nd and the fact that seattle also needs a qb at 25th, reaching is not the worst idea.
If we are going to trade down, we can't do it with NE because of seattle. Someone like the colts maybe, or perhaps giants a bit higher up. An extra 2nd or 3rd would do wonders for all of the position depth/upgrades this team should do.
