Still looks insane to me. List out all the guys you consider 1st, and 2nd rounders and Criner isn't in that list. I have no qualms putting up a 100% guarantee that Criner will not go in the 1st or 2nd round.

Criner has about a 25% chance of going somewhere in the 3rd, but most likely will be selected after that.

I'm not arguing that he will go in the 1st (even though my post sounds like I might have done that). But Sr. Bowls often skyrocket players, and I don't think you can guarantee that he won't go in the 2nd, especially towards the end of it

If he had more speed, he'd have a tiny shot, but that'll be what knocks him out of 1st-2nd consideration when compounded with his other concerns.

Does Rainey have return skills as well? so he's basically a non migraine version of Percy Harvin. Niners need that type of explosive player on the offense

He has returned punts at Florida, and blocked the punt versus Ohio State for a TD.

Needs to answer questions about the arrest for sending a threatening text message at the combine

Dam even a text can come back and cost you money. I think his girlfriend dropped those charges or something. But he will need to explain his actions

TE: Ladarius Green - reminds me of that TE the Cardinals drafted last season whose name escapes me at the moment but who I think will be a starter in the NFL (anyone, anyone?)
Rob Housler from Florida Atlantic was drafted by Arizona. Or are you thinking Julius Thomas from Portland St. that was a former basketball player and was drafted by Denver (That's who Green reminds me of.)

after following practice reports closer than I ever have, these are the guys I'm looking forward to watching on Saturday:

North

QB: Kirk Cousins - should easily be the best looking signal caller for that team, although it'll be interesting to see whether Moore/Wilson show their "gamer" side.
RB: Doug Martin - by all accounts the best RB in Mobile.
WR: TJ Graham & Marvin Jones - when it's all said and done they may have made the biggest jump on many boards.
TE: Michael Egnew - has gotten very mixed reviews, but he's still easily the best TE on that roster.
OL: Mike Adams - seems to have solidified himself as the top senior OT, should be the 4th OT taken and will probably go in the first round, LT potential, he can looked great at times and still seems to have a lot of room for improvements (honorable mention to Mitchell Schwartz and Kevin Zeitler)
DL: lots of guys to like here, but probably most looking forward to Mike Martin and Vinny Curry.
LB: I'm intrigued to see Cam Johnson rushing the passer, think he can be a DE in the NFL
CB: Josh Norman - even though he was a late add, he's definitely a target for the 49ers. Also Jamell Fleming.
S: George Iloka - the FS from Boise State might be the first safety off the board after Barron and Martin

South

QB: Weeden - hands down the best QB at the Senior Bowl, I think he's solidified himself as a day 2 pick, still think his age ONLY keeps him out of the first round.
RB: Chris Rainey - might be the fastest player in the whole draft - don't miss him run the 40 at the combine folks
WR: Joe Adams - almost by default, coming into this week I was looking forward to seeing Dwight Jones and Jeff Fuller but man have they disappointed me.
TE: Ladarius Green - reminds me of that TE the Cardinals drafted last season whose name escapes me at the moment but who I think will be a starter in the NFL (anyone, anyone?)
OL: Gordy Glenn - MadDog has already told you about him I have nothing else to add, I'm curious to see Matt McCants from UAB as well.
DL: Courtney Upshaw - he's working himself into a likely top 10 pick.
LB: coming into this week it was Emmanuel Acho, it's now Zach Brown, has All-Pro potential.
CB: Janoris Jenkins - but Casey Hayward and Brandon Boykin intrigue me as well.
S: Markelle Martin - he's the top FS in the draft, and has not let down this week in Mobile. Look out for Brandon Taylor - the kid from LSU lays wood, at worst will make a roster as a ST stud but will eventually be a starter at SS.

While #SeniorBowl Starting Line-Ups mean little, a few notes: Alfred Morris at FB, Mike Martin playing NT, Cam Johnson at DE (listed as LB)
Hey MadDog! What's your take on Shea McClellin from Boise St? He seems to be making an impression at the Senior Bowl practices. I think his versatility would fit very nicely into the Niners D.

I thought a slow start and solid finish. Torn whether he is a 4-3 backer or 3-4 . Not sure there is enough strength at point of attack to be a solid pass rusher at the next level. However, the hustle and quickness are there, so I wouldn't bet against him. To me, he is a 4 th rounder with the potential to sneak into the 3rd round with a solid combine.
