He's the kind of raw project player I would love to have after the 3rd, but he'll get drafted too high based on potential.
I agree. Last thing the Niners need is another project WR after this years debacle with AJ Jenkins. The Niners need to draft defense as the top of this draft. Based on MDs rankings I might go:
1) Sam Montgomery OLB Good value at #32 . Another big time pass rusher would be huge
2) Brandon Williams DT Plug in your NT for a few years
3A) Logan Ryan CB MD put him at this spot for Niners. Excellent value at a need position
3B Stedman Bailey WR The Niners need a quick slot WR who can also excel in the return game
Do we really, though? Kyle Williams is proven in that role. Manningham is can also excel in the slot. And I doubt they're giving up on Jenkins yet.
Seems a "quick slot WR who can also excel in the return game" is just about the last thing we need. We don't have a single tall WR or deep threat type other than our TE (assuming Randy Moss keeps slowing down).
Jenkins isnt a slot WR and while they arent giving up on him the team does need more weapons. Who knows how Brandon Williams will be when he returns and quite frankly he isnt that dynamic anyway. I think Bailey would give the Niners an exciting slot WR and would be excellent value at the end of the 3rd round.
I would jump for joy if these were our top 4 picks.
