Depends on what you mean by "better"...

Pro Bowls = DeCastro

Championships = Looney
I of course think the odds are on DeCastro. But I would bet the gap is much more narrow than people here would have you believe. If Decastro was so fantastic why did he drop so far in the first, beyond that once he fell a good bit, if he was so much better wouldnt his college coach have made a bigger effort to move up and get him. I think that Harbaugh assigned a value on him based on knowing him so well and it was lower than a lot of the league. Maybe if he fell to us in the first round we take him..maybe our F.O. saw him as more of a second rounder... either way I would bet they think the gap between him and Looney is closer than this board does.

MD gave us a F for not trading up for DeCastro.

Well done Buck. It appears MD is incorrect.

It's curious how DeCastro is only leading 64-36%. Either all the people voting for Looney are afraid to show their faces in here, or someone is stuffing the ballots....

Never said he couldn't be. But the fact is that the poll results don't match up with the posts in this thread. That's all I'm trying to say.

because hes a guard
Well Looney has two things going for him at the moment. First, according to Jeremy Newberry Looney is significantly fastser than DeCastro. In addition Looney has already had some significant training from Newberry which would indicate interest in learning an aggressive desire to go out and find training, and enough grit to impress someone like Newberry. So Looney has already shown significant skills that the Niners like. So how it manifests itself over time remains to be seen but so far Looney has give us something to think about.

Newberry also works for the agency representing Looney so he's not going to say anything negative about Looney. I just don't know how much value I can really put into this report.
