Kiper's new 2011 49ers draft grade

Maybe we can trade Kaepernick for a high round draft pick in a couple of years?

maybe but ive been high on Kap since i saw him beat the whole Boise State team by himself. I still think he is a star in the making. I believe Alex Smith's success will allow Kap to sit back for awhile and fully understand the system and the league.i dont c him starting next year or even the year after that but I wouldnt rule him out of our QB competition. Remember Harbaugh loves competition in every position and i think part of Alex's success is the fact that he has a kid with tremendous talent behind him looking to take his job instead of someone like david carr .

I see another Montana-Young controversary
Kiper is a doosh. How can he leave Bruce Miller off the list, unless this was done early in the season.
this is one of the better draft classes that the 49ers had in a long, long time. This and 2007 FTW

Bill Walsh approves of this message
It's either A or A+. It was really a good draft. When you add Bruce Miller the FB who he didn't mention.
Great draft. Going to be hard to match this one.

Don't forget Bruce Miller Mel. An OLB switching to FB and playing a key role = A+

Not to mentions a stud ST ace in Colin Jones...

The Niners knew they had to get some help at these positions in the draft...

Pass-rusher......check (double check actually)
QB......................check
CB......................check
RB......................check
FB......................check (double check...Pro Bowl)
OL depth............check
ST.......................check
WR depth...........doh! (oh well....can't expect perfection)

Realistically, 5-6 of the guys picked could be starting at some point in the next couple of years. Yes, I would say that is a pretty good draft.

Let's do it again and then we'll really have something to talk about...

Cheers!
