greg childs isnt a development progress
he may run THE best routes in the whole draft
he is also pretty fast and has great size great hands and body control
he is pro ready who only dropped because of a pectoral injury at the end of 2010 which affected him in 2011 season
seriously this guy has amazing routes he uses fakes and everything
It takes more then route running to be NFL ready. I think he needs more time in the weight room to put on additional muscle, I think rigiht now he will struggle against physical corners and he needs work on his hands as he tends to body catch.

You must not be very high on CK, and that is OK, since I am not either. That being said, I doubt the Niners select a QB this year with four already under contract. I think the Niners want to see how Alex Smith performs, the development or non-development of CK, and whether lightning can strike twice between Harbaugh and Josh Johnson. Tolzien probably gets a year on the practice squad.
I'm not high on CK at all, I watched a couple of Nevada games (for fun, not even thinking of the draft), and he wasn't reading defenses at all, showed poor ball placement, and poor footwork (partially because he is a great scrambler, but he has to learn to set his feet and throw instead of scrambling so early). If CK becomes an NFL starter, it will be after a lot of development, but coming out of college he did not show he could hack it in the NFL. The gulf between Dalton (who I was extremely high on) and CK was huge.
However, if I was a GM and I saw Kirk Cousins sitting in the 3rd I'd take him. The only scenario where I wouldn't take him is if I wsa completely sold on my #1/#2 QB (which we shouldn't be) and there was a player you REALLY wanted still on the board.
Cousins has a 1st round worthy arm, accuracy and release IMO. Mentally Cousins isn't there (he is prone to a couple of really dumb passes per game) and a lot of his ducks he threw were the result of a breakdown in his footwork/balance which is normally good. So Cousins needs to develop more consistentcy on his mechanics, and needs to be coached up to not do his Favre-esque dumb throws.
