New Redzone Target-Updated with Senior Bowl and E-W Shrine measurements*

OTC mention somebody who I had forgot about because of injury but could be a "late" round target depending on medical....Childs out of Arkansas. If he checks out fine but is falling I would pull the trigger a round early and use him as the 6th WR that doesn't dress so he can heal further.

I've been reading up on Patella injuries and it seems like depending on the severity, Patella injuries can be even worse and more difficult to come back from than torn ACL's. This is very sad if Childs cannot come back to pre-injury form. He would've been gone in the first three rounds if he hadn't gotten hurt last year.

Now I'm concerned whether or not he'll even get drafted once teams look at that knee.

Childs was Arkansas' top target for Mallett, then he had injury issues, and Joe Adams emerged as there top guy, they have a tremendous QB Tyler Wilson, who will be a senior after deciding to stay for his final season.

Now that we are in the 29-32 range, we could be looking at a Mohamed Sanu. If not, I am all for trading back, maybe picking up a 2nd and heck maybe a team trades a 2013 1st for someone who is hot that is there at a need we dont need. Maybe Tannehill.

A guy I like that just declared is LSU DT/DE Michael Brockers, could be a 3-4 end. But it is too tell whether we keep some of our FAs, that will determine our main needs.

Alex, Rogers, Goldson and Brooks are top priorities. Costanzo, Morgan will be easy signings, Others like RFAs Grant and Spillman will be tendered.

What sucks about winning big is our team will be raided. Might lose a starter or 2. I can see Brooks, Goldson, Snyder leaving. Goldson is a must keep.

Brooks need to retained too, if we lose just Snyder and say Ginn, and retain Alex, Morgan, Costanzo, Rogers, Brooks, Goldson, Grant, Spillman and Gooden I am a happy camper.

I can see Nicks coming from New Orleans, e is a bay area native. Offer him a huge contract and he will come.

I agree with you about Floyd. Only reason I hardly even mention him is because I like to think he'll be gone by the time we pick. Remember this isn't the 9ers of 2005 and 2007 or 2010 we will be drafting at the end of the 1st round. And I'd be shocked if Floyd lasted that long.

Since the Niners have talent at so many positions right now, they could conceivably trade up if they really like a player....like Floyd. Because they have made such good personell decisions in the past few years, they have more flexibility than most teams.

I recall that Bill Walsh once traded up so he could pick a wideout from a very small college in Mississippi.....guy by the name of Rice.
After what happened with Braylon Edwards, you can bet that the Niners will only bring in wideouts with great character and strong work ethics.

Would love someone to list the biggest WRs in the draft and in free agency with these being at the top of the criteria list.
Not sure I can really see us going after Bowe. He's got tons of talent for sure, but he seems inconsistent and not always focused.

I think Colston would be a GREAT fit.

Either way, I would think SF would be a top choice for top FA WRs. The 9ers are hosting the NFC Championship (man I love typing that) and have very little WR talent. Top WRs should be excited about coming to SF and having a chance to be the #1 WR. Especially after the show Alex just put on.

Colston just had a front row seat for the Alex Smith show. He knows how good that offense could be with him in it.

But even if we land Colston or another big name WR FA, I still agree that we should draft a big, fast WR in the first 2 rounds. That would leave us with Crabtree, Colston (or another FA), Williams, and maybe Hill (or another draft pick). Then we would be able to sign or not sign Ginn and Morgan as needed. Honestly, I'd like for us to have all 6 so that Ginn can focus on KR/PR duties. And so that we don't end up having to start guys like Swain again....

Agree. I could see the 49ers moving up to get what they want very easily if that player is within reach.
More rankings, these are from NFP

Players are listed by height, so dont freak out by the rankings initially. Actual player rankings are on the far right...his ranking system goes like this:

**************************************************************************************

6.6 Clean player who is inconsistent in his play due to character, technique, alertness or competitiveness… Has all the physical tools needed to become a starter… If he overcomes his deficiencies he will be a star in the league… If he doesn't he will be a complete failure — There is NO middle ground!

6.1 A clean prospect who will need time and development in order to contribute…physically, this player has all the tools to be a starter in the NFL but has not yet developed the necessary skills due to level of competition, offensive or defensive schemes, injury, grades or lack of playing time…true developmental player who has the potential to become a starter.

Keywords in bold.

And right now we could very well be picking last, so our range would pretty much be to the 20th pick (590-850 on the DVC).

But I'd much rather let the draft come to us.

Where is fleener projected? 2nd round?

I would say mid to late 1st to late 2nd round....cant see him going later then that.

His combine numbers will be interesting to see. I say he goes top 15 picks in the 2nd.
i want a shot at stephen hill and tommy streeter

This thread will be used to list, rank, discuss, argue etc etc players who fall into the "big target" category. Although I prefer the 6'3+ range for that classification I will use players who stand at 6'2 as of now. Once the combine comes we will have more accurate measurements for players I will adjust accordingly. All rankings and measurements are taken from DraftScout. I was initially only going to list WR's but will add TE's into the mix as well. Because most TE's fall into the "big" category I will try to keep the list short and keep the blocking guys out of the mix. If I have missed anybody let me know and I will add them.
