Who is Trent Baalke's Mystery Draft Crush?

Gore cant take the hits of a full season anymore. If Fleener is gone and there is a good RB left then we select him. We need a solid, youngster who is durable enough to run between the tackles and speedy enough to haul a$$. We can pick up a good guard and WR in rounds 2 & 3. Too bad Balke didnt put X-Lax in Sing's coffee 2 yrs ago. We could have gotten a good guard at #2 instead of a speedy clown who thought he could play football.

Brandon Boykin. Elite athlete, elite speed, great return specialist, versatile (offensively & defensively), played against elite competition, small but durable (played in all 53 gms), and position of need. Book it.

Would really like to get this guy in the second round for sure.

and we could get another TE in rounds 4-7

Fleener is a wasted pick

Baalke's "crush" is a smoke screen. I think he wants to trade down. By saying "there's a guy we want at #30 and we know he'll be there," he's sending a message to potential trade partners. The message is "We're not afraid to use the pick and we're not desperate to trade." This is his attempt to maximize the value of the #30 pick.

Why trade down? The 49ers don't need to get instant starters from this draft (though it's always nice). What they really need is players to develop for the future. Also, there's no way that 7 rookies make this squad. So they don't really need or want 7 picks. The best bang for the buck in the draft is in rounds 2-5. That's where you find the high value guys who aren't necessarily ready to start year one, but who can become solid starters down the road. I think Baalke's strategy is to trade down out of round 1 and up out of the later rounds to try and land 4-5 picks in rounds 2-4.

baalke history is trading up not down

and trading down with our roster is stupid we need to get rid of picks not get more as of now i highly doubt 2 of our picks even make the team

traded up 2 times though and both early in draft just outside first and in 1st round

our roster is too talented to add waste draft picks on people who wont even make the team

Just playing devil's advocate but we could move down and collect future picks since we have such a talented roster. My hope is that we draft BAPlaymaker in the 1st and trade up in the 2nd to get a RG. Hopefully it will only cost a 4th. But they could just as easily trade out of the 1st for a mid-high 2nd and a 2nd round pick next year.

This makes me want a guard more than ever.

that mutha f**ker don't know s**t. I doubt that Baalke will limit himself to a few players. He will draft bpa or trade up.

Hopefully its one of the top receivers or Hill or Randle whichever is available at #30.
schwartz? guy from cal?
it'll be a successful thursday night for me if we come out with fleener, hill or randle. i have a feeling baalke will trade up knowing our team is staked and are in the prefect opportunity to trade up for a player we really want since our draft picks in the lower rounds will have a tough time making the team
