-Baalke isn't buying Scotty's philosophy that every player must come from the SEC. We clearly did our HW and drafted a number of players from small schools and lesser conferences.
-Colin Kaepernik. Anyone saying he isn't a good fit for the WCO is an idiot. Can we at least give Harbaugh the respect to assume he knows which QB fits his offense?!? Smart, hard working, with a phenomenal arm (2nd best in this class), and unmatched mobility. Far better athlete than even Cam Newton. I can't express in words how excited I am to have Harbaugh coach this guy to be the next 49er signal caller!
-Hunter. We actually got a back with some speed? Will not only help this team, but will also prolong Gore's career. Great value!
-Addressing O-line with later round picks. This is a good place to draft O-line. Tons of talent found later in the draft.
-The GM, not owner/fans/media made the 1st pick. You may not love Aldon Smith, but you can't argue that this was a thoughtless pick. The team went against expectation, and that means research went in, rather than conforming to popular opinion.
- where the F*** is D-line help? If Franklin and McDonald leave via FA, we will literally have 3 lineman. 2 of them not of starting quality. We will Perdue very aggressively in FA I hope
- all the players we missed. Meracic could have been our 3rd Rd pick. He's worth it. Passed on Rickly Elmore in the 7th... Would of been a steal!
- last pick is a throw away. Too much CB depth. We need starters, not backups. Won't make the team. Why not try the QB Harbaugh likes? Give him the playbook early.
- too much projection. Smith and Kap are raw. Who the F* is Culliver? OTs are converting inside, and haven't exactly played outside much. A kid was drafted to play a position he's never played in his life. Hunter is the only one ready to step I'm right away. I don't mind projections, but almost every pick is a gamble!
Overall grade? In progress... I'll know by year's end..
