Aldon Smith against the run....look how he stands up...
Colin could be great but he's a project and doesn't have a prototypical NFL QB frame. Closer to Tom Bradys actually then Manning, Brees, or Rodgers.
Culliver was a waste. There was better talent on the board and they reached for a need with better DB's there.
Can you say Andrew Luck? What was the office thinking?
Aldon Smith (could be) good. Colin (could be) good. Culliver will be second string. Wow.
What are you thinking?
Aldon Smith against the run? He is a beast, maybe not be the bulldozer on initial contact but doesn't allow the blocker to get into his body and sheds blocks while always having his eyes on the ball carrier and the direction of the play. He plays OLB not NT or DE. Be realistic! He will still put on 10-15pnds of muscle, All-American freshman year, then all conference with a broken leg! He's mean and has the Reggie White-esque club move, not the pansy "i dont want to take people straight on" dash and swim around the side.
CK... well any QB selection is gonna stir the pot, but this is the QB JH wanted, loved and got. That should be enough for any fan, especially those who think we actually have a chance at Luck next year, who developed Luck again?
No one is expecting Culliver to come in and start. He is a freak athlete with limited experience. But is there a CB/DB in the draft right now that can step in and be better than Spencer and Clements... no. So they went with need and ceiling.
Yeah that is actually the first thing I noticed about him was his ability to either keep an OL stand pat or push him back. He played against some good lineman and they couldn't seem to move him. (Keep in mind all I have is youtube)
Kaep nobody should expect this guy to come in and win the starting job. Period... Sure it would be nice too many, but remember what happened last time we rushed a QB
. He is most defiantly a project pick, but with good upside. Give him at least a year, if not 2.
Culliver: Never heard of him until we drafted him t.b.h. Not sure what we're gonna do with him, but well see. As said never even heard of the guy.
