otherwise you'll be killing yourself?

I've heard of man-crushes but god damn

I told you I'm a HUGE fan
^^ same here

he can be had in 2nd maybe 3rd round and definitally can be the best CB behind claiborne

he has shutdown potential

very similar to revis in terms of playig styles and i think the measurements are similar as well

I'm officially hating on any mock that doesn't have us drafting him. Love Hayward, absolute ball hawk, physical and can play multiple coverages already.

Let me explain what this is. This is basically the players that I believe would be good fits here, and these are SOME of the players I feel the 49ers should or will likely target in the draft (although if I feel very strongly the 49ers should NOT take them, I will not include them in my target grid). 1st rounders are only players we have a reasonable shot at. I will not list every single player eligible, but I will list the top targets that for each round/tier, which will include all positions. Keep in mind we will be picking toward the end of each round.

OTC, Im curious about your opinions on these two guys

Jake Bequette, DE Arkansas

Chandler Jones, DE Syracuse

Are they strictly 4-3 ends? Bequette looked pretty good against KSU last night and I've seen on some prospect lists that hes one of the faster DE's out there. Plus, I got a couple magazines that had him as a possible first round pick as of draft time last year. And im starting to see Jones name pop up more often. No idea about him cuz I havent seen him play but one site compared him to Aldon. Plus, I think hes the brother of Arthur Jones and Bones Jones. Not like that matters lol, but im curious how you see them?

Yes, 4-3 ends. I don't see them as great fits in a 3-4.

I just posted a thread about him, but why is AJ Jenkins not on your list? Is he not entering the draft this year?

I think he's a Brandon Lloyd type of receiver, which may be good for other teams, but I think us bringing in Braylon Edwards this last off-season shows we're looking for someone who can create a size mismatch. I see us selecting at least one of these types of players come April.

-----------------------------

FYI, List updated.

Stock up: Vanderbilt DC Casey Hayward
Hayward isn't the fastest or most fluid prospect in a deep and talented corner class, but big-play ability keeps him in the second-to-third-round range. Hayward had 13 interceptions over the last two seasons, and he hasn't yet reached his full potential.
His instincts and positioning are excellent, but he will drop catchable passes at times, and if he can improve his hands he could develop into the kind of playmaker teams covet. In addition, he's willing in run support, is a strong tackler who limits production after the catch, and contributes on kickoff coverage.

copied from the wonderful world of ESPN, willing run support CB and a special teams contributor!?!? The stars are aligning for us to pick this guy.

mahalo!
OTC, what positions do you think Harbaugh is looking at? Obviously, there needs to be some restocking at WR and another guy behind VD and Walker.

I agree. If the Niners could upgrade their 3rd RB position, I'd feel a lot more comfortable. Tab a project for that could compete for the feature back position in the future. I like the idea of Dixon, but he seems like the spot to upgrade if the chance was there.

It is a spot to look for, but not earlier than the 5th round. We have needs on the interior of the O-line, at DB, WR, and could use another LB, and defensive lineman. Can't waste a 1st-4th rounder on a guy that will seldom play.
where do u see eric page going otc? 4th round ish?

I think next year, we will go into TC with the following competitions at WR and TE:

Crabtree
Morgan (IR)
Williams
Ginn
ROOKIE WR
ROOKIE WR
Hastings
Dontavia Bogan (IR)

Vernon
Walker
Byham
Reuland
ROOKIE UDFA TE

Overall, I have to believe we will focus on OG, C, WR, S, CB, and LB in the off-season.
