MD, Isn't Havili a little early in the 4th round? I mean Peyton Hillis and that crazy dude Owen Schmitt both went in the 6th round or later. Or do you think Havili is that good of a FB prospect. Perhaps we could get a burner WR in the 4th round instead.
Most of the time, I would agree that a fullback in the fourth seems a bit high. However, in the case of the Niners, they are transitioning to the WCO, and Havili was born to play in it. Second, since the Niners have two fourth rounders, they have the luxury of selecting someone that high.
Havili is potentially a very dynamic player with a creative offense in place.
