Bulaga or A. Davis?
damn, I liked Bulaga a lot before the 2010 draft, thought he was a top 10-15 pick easily, surprised he fell. I was happy with Davis though. It's hard to say, right now I would go with Bulaga based on feeling he would help more right away. Davis is young, and needs more time to develop, plus who knows if he is a Guard or Tackle. I know I was surprised we jumped up a few spots and took Davis.
A little off topic, but seems like Baalke has done some good trades IMO in his two drafts. 2010 he moved back in round 3 with San Diego, picked up a 2011 4th, and got their 2011 3rd, which was NaVorro Bowman, we also acquired a 6th rounder, who was Anthony Dixon. With that 2011 4th we ended taking Kendall Hunter, so not a bad trade, SD ended up with Donald Butler, who was hurt his rookie season.
Then in 2011 we traded our 3rd again back down with Jacksonville, for a 3rd and 6th, used the 3rd on Chris Culliver, Jacksonville picked G Will Rackley, we used that 6th on Ronald Johnson, who didn't work out so well.
Also of course traded up with GB for the Kilgore pick and the Davis deal in 2010. So Baalke isn't afraid to pull the trigger. It's gonna be interesting come Thursday, around say 11;30 PM et/8:30 PM pst when we are up, kinda sucks being up so late in the 1st and all rounds. But was worth it for the season we had. Just gonna be tiring for the first 3 hours waiting on each pick, but exciting to see who passes on who, and who reaches, etc..
