I tend to agree with where he has players slotted talent-wise even though it's no the common feeling. I've said all along Hill is overrated and Fleener is a boarderline first round talent but will slip to the 2nd. Ruben Randle is a better player than Hill right now and is a safer pick. the guys runs well, is fluid in his routes, and has good hands.
Konz I think will drop because of the strength factor.
If we get Poe and Jones 1 & 2 I think we would have done very well. I saw the comment from a guy questioning why the niners would draft 2 defensive players in the first 2 rounds but his logic is off. NT is a need. I know Soap is good but depth is an issue and he isnt getting younger...plus Poe is a freak. As for Jones...you can never have enough pass rushers kind of like you can never have enought arms in baseball.
Smart teams draft BPA and we are now a smart team.
Just a gut feeling that Poe is a combine freak, his play on film does not back up his physical numbers. However, a team that doesn't mind developing those talents might be rewarded if he ends up with Justin Smith's ethics, but gut feeling is he does not.
At the opposite end of the spectrum is Hill, he is another combine freak and is obviouly raw in his route tree, because of the offense they ran though, this can explain his lack of numbers. Randle is a blue collar WR like Hines Ward, he won't be a pulling in huge numbers, but he probably will be like the Justin Smith of WR in that his motor never stops even if it isn't a pass play or he isn't the primary target.
Fleener has versatility to play a big wr or the TE. Just needs to better his run blocking.
