Alright guys, Im only doing 4 rounds
HC- Harbaugh, no s**t.
OC- Bill Musgrave, Falcons' QB coach. Harbaugh will still call plays.
DC- Vic Fangio
3-4 Defense. Move Dixon to a WCO FB type player
FA Resignings- Takeo Spikes, McDonald, Lawson, Baas, Westbrook, Restructure Nate
Cuts/ Players who walk-
Sims and Wragge and Rachel Ray
FA Signings- James Jones WR, Paul Solai NT, Kamerion Wimbley OLB, Matt Hasselbeck QB, Dennis Dixon QB
1st- Prince Amukamara CB
2nd- Jeremy Beal OLB
3rd- Greg Little WR
4th- Pat Devlin QB
4th- Derrick Locke RB/WR
Conclusion: Hasselbeck will be the day 1 starter with Dixon as the 2nd. Devlin will be the developmental project pick who I see as a good WCO QB for the future.
Solai will replace Franklin and Wimbley will be the starting OLB across from Lawson, who will split time with Beal. Jones will start across from Crabtree. Locke is the exciting pick IMO. He is that lightning quick RB we want as a change of pace, and can catch passes too.
I'll kind of a go after each spot a little bit.
OC - Harbaugh is probably bring in a Stanford staffer, Greg Roman to become the "oc". This of course is pending Stanford offers to his former staff.
DC - Same principle is applied, likely Fangio like you say.
Defense will stay 3-4 of course as you said.
RB/FB -- We very likely could be looking at a new backfield pending Gore's health next year. Would rather go with Nate Bynham at FB or draft Stanley Havali or Mercilic if Gore isn't healthy.
FA signing -
NT - We will probably draft a young NT and let Franklin walk. RJF in no way an immediate starter would rather we brought in a young guy to compete with him.
WR - A lot of Packer fans don't like James Jones. He has been dubbed James "Big Drop" Jones. Not really my liking if a guy hasn't shaken that nickname 4 years into his career. My family is from Wisconsin so I consider my Packer news pretty legit.
LB - I don't know Wimbley so I won't assess this. I've seen a lot of mocks with us getting Casey Matthews of Oregon, Clay Matthews' younger brother, as a backup for Lawson.
QB - I really dig the Dennis Dixon idea, I started a thread about this actually. If we don't want to trade for Johnson I have a feeling we will be signing Dixon.
Hasselbeck earned a "seattle forever" contract with his performance last weekend. He will backup whoever they have next year.
1 - Amukamara is who I have been saying we need to draft all along.
2 - I don't see us going LB this early. That is why I pointed out the Matthews pick, he is a 3-5 rounder and we have a higher priority at DE if we let Haraalson walk.
3 - I might have slipped on the Greg Little news but we will have a better chance getting our hands on Armon Binns at this point.
4 - I like Devlin but honestly see Dalton as our late round QB if we don't bite on Locker or Newton.
4 - We should be addressing our need for a NT at this point. If I'm not mistaken Sione Fua was projected as 3-4th rounder. Jerrelle Powe could even fall to the 3-4th range based on his age
I'm a Utah guy and have to make this pitch, if we draft a DE in the first we should take Brandon Burton of Utah if he falls into round 2. Great press coverage guy, needs a little hip work.
