Sfout's mock probably has Quick a bit high, great physical speciman but I want to see if he can catch the ball away from his body more in workouts before penciling him in there. The one worrisome thing I've noticed about his tape is how he lets almost everything into his body which leads to him double catching the ball quite a bit. That wont work in the NFL or even preseason (see RoJo).
What do you guys think about Tank Carder anywher after the 4th? If he's there he could be the BPA, and could take Goodens spot by being a special teams demon while much more capable as a backup possibly at both ILB & OLB spots (but not being counted on as the primary rushing OLB). Amazing tackler with speed, a ballhawk who find a way to make plays, and has shown some ability to rush the passer... He could start off as a swiss army knife type backup for the LB group and groomed into playing opposite Aldon as the OLB who will drop into coverage if needed allowing Aldon to do what he does best, rush the passer.
Yeah...I guess I'm an eternal optimist by nature.....
Actually, I think there is so much talent in this draft that I don't think it is out of the realm of possibility for one
of those guys to fall to the Niners in the second. All it takes is one.
Finally, after seeing the Niners load on ST guys last year in free agency, I'm guessing that they will take steps to make that unit even stronger this year.....so as a late round pick, I can see the team go Tanking
