This team is better than last year while still growing for the future. They could compete in the NFC West now that their schemes and plays will be at an appropriate level (Singeltary knew nothing of X’s and O’s).
Pat Devlin has what it takes to be a great QB in Jim Harbaugh’s WCO. He has great mobility and is a really smart QB with good accuracy. He could develop at a similar rate as Josh Freeman (Start halfway through rookie season, starter in sophomore season).
We also fix up our secondary by picking Prince Amukamara and Robert Sands while improving our Pass Rush with Keiser and Wimbley. While this is clearly a step up, we will continue to improve our D-Line in 2012.
Lastly, although it pains me to trade Gore, we get the best value for him while we can by trading him to the Redskins (30th in Rushing), as the Shanahan’s need help so that they don’t get fired. Assuming they draft a QB in Round 1, they will have the QB, RB O-Line and Defence.
This gives us a better (or comparable) team to last year’s Seahawks, and Jim Harbaugh will maximize the talent on our roster. Even without the Gore trade (which is the least likely thing to happen). The only difference without the Gore trade is we pick Kendall Hunter with the 4th rounder that we sent to Washington.
