Should we prepare for luck now?

True. Look what the Cowboys did with all those draft picks they got for Herschel Walker.

So you would rather have three 1st than the re-incarnate of Montana (your words, not mine, and obviously hypothetical)?

Really?

I mean really?

2012 49ers with Montana re-incarnate (again the above disclaimer) and Harbaugh at coach and you will trade that for three 1st's?

Look all I know is this. Harbaugh has said some pretty remarkable things about Luck. Harbaugh has a good track record with QB's. Harbaugh and Baalke both agree that QB is the most important position on the team. Anything is possible, including Luck busting, but I personally wouldn't have a problem with a ridiculous trade for Luck.

We need a stud QB in a QB driven league. If those 2 feels strongly that Luck is exactly that then I have no problems with showing the guts to do what you feel is necessary.

Watch Luck not even be the highest rated QB next year.

Next years QB class should look even better.

what usually works out better...a stud qb with nothing around him or a decent quarterback with a bunch of talent around him
Most of the qbs coming out this draft are career backups anyways so why can't we get a vet and a career backup then the following draft do whatever it takes to get luck who Is our promise qb to get us back to the promise land. And we also establish his career backup if he gets hurt and if he's backup ends up being a stud well then we have trade bait

Locker '10= Luck '11

FAIL


Luck could be great. But let's see him play next year before concluding he's the automatic No. 1 pick in 2012. Remember Brian Brohm? He was consensus pre-season No. 1 pick ... and then played terribly his final year ... and then worked out poorly for teams ... and then was drafted in the mid rounds.

Locker was mostly internet hype last year at this time. IIRC he actually got a 2nd round grade from the draft advisory board, and that was why he really stayed in school. Obviously he hasn't helped himself since.

Luck seems like a lot more of a legit prospect in most people's eyes, in a Sam Bradford vein. A lot of people thought he had thrown his career away by not coming out after winning the Heisman and then getting hurt, but he still went #1 overall. I'd expect the same for Luck, unless his production really nosedives without Harbaugh.

Herschel does not equal Monatana. I would rather have Joe Montana, a sure thing than 3 unknown things, beisdes RB are easier to find than a great QB, SB winning, Hall of Fame player.

I highly doubt that but anything is possible.

I just hope Luck gets caught with talking to an agent. Gets deemed ineligible. Enters the supplemental draft. Says he only wants to play for the niners. We give up a 7th round pick for him.

That's what we said about this year's draft last year

Fact of the matter is, you or I, are not the QB Guru here.. Harbaugh is.. And if Harbaugh thinks there is a person in the 3rd round that he can groom into the QB of the future, then that is what Harbaugh is going to do and probably succeed at.....

It's all fun to speculate who we all want and why, but in the end, Harbaugh is the QB Master with the track record and I am fine with whoever he decides to draft or pick up via FA, if there is one....

Thats why Harbaugh and Baalke will take Cam Newton

I agree that Harbaugh knows more than me, you, or anyone else in the zone, but I think, because the position is so important, we should invest a first round pick into it, unless Harbaugh thinks everyone else is under estimating some middle round qb. I think there are very few Niner fans that don't want Andrew Luck, and I'm trying to think of some ways that we could have an outside shot at getting him
