It looks bad, but I'm pretty sure he's referring to Willie Mays.
Agree with the first 3 points above....(and I actually love the name because I saw Mays play)...
To the point...a more realistic draft with the same players is below... I left out rounds 6 and 7 because the prospects you listed will probably all be gone by then...
Round 1 (30).......TE....Coby Fleener
Round 2 (62).......WR...Brian Quick
Round 3 (93).......OG....Brandon Brooks
Round 4 (127).....OLB..Donte Paige-Moss
Round 5 (160+)...KR....Devon Wylie (although I would draft a DT here and perhaps sooner...this draft is deep with good DLmen)
I think this is still a fine group of players and I would be pleased if the draft unfolded this way for the Niners.
As for the FAs you listed, I agree with several of the others in that Morgan will probably resign with the Niners (and the team most definitely DOES need him). Losing Morgan to injury may have cost the team a Super Bowl title because he had developed a nice rapport with Alex Smith, particularly on 3rd downs.
I also think the team will make a real run at re-signing Ginn and Brooks. Ginn's value was painfully obvious in the NFC Championship game, and Brooks may be even more valuable to the team than Rogers (and I loved the way Rogers played this year) because the Niners are woefully thin at OLB and can't afford to let that position get any weaker. I wouldn't even be surprised to see the team franchise Brooks instead of Goldson because he is probably more difficult to replace at this point.
As for the FAs you suggested the team sign, both will probably be far too expensive. Don't think the Niners would bite on either of those two.
I enjoyed your post....keep 'em coming....
