If he can get/keep his mind right, he has the talent to be an Anquan Boldin-type of WR.
I really like what i see from him granted its only from youtube highlights and the combine stuff but still. I agree with you on the Anquan Boldin comparison. We have the kind of locker room that can help out a kid like him. Oh except I wouldnt let him hang out with Aldon Smith though

Thanks SF. The more I think about it, the more I like Ninerjohn's suggestion of taking Marcus Lattimore in the 4th rather than Ace Sanders. Just makes more sense.
i've got Lattimore in my board/mock, as well, but i feel like he'll be there at the end of the 4th or 5th.
As far as TE goes I'd like to see us take Joseph Fauria from UCLA with a later pick. If you ever had a chance to watch him you know he has OUTSTANDING hands, is 6'7 runs great routes is hard to cover and would be perfect for redzone situations. He's the nephew of Christian Fauria of the name rings a bell. His blocking leaves something to be desired but we don't need him for that.

Ghost. What do you think of Fauria?
Honestly, I don't know much about him. More of an SEC guy than a Pac 12 guy, but of the Bruins games I've seen, he hasn't stood out to me. IMO, Datone Jones jumped out, as dis Franklin and their young OLB. I'd have to rely on someone else who's seen more of him....sorry.

Rogers would be an interesting pick. Given that the 49ers now have an extra second, and an early one at that, this opens up A LOT of possibilities, such as DeAndre Hopkins for example.
Hopkins would be an even better WR option, IMO....but I think our secondary needs more of a talent upgrade than our WR corps, IMO. But if they drafted Hopkins or even Hunter with that high 2nd, I would have no problem with it.
Like the releases. I think we lose DWalker to FA. I really don't feel we'll get into a bidding skirmish w/anyone.
FA - I like the Delmas pick BUT I think we'd be better off w/Houston's S Glover Quin 6' 207, 27 years old.
I also like Michael Bennett DE Tampa Bay, 6'4", 274 - he'd be an impact player and make an excellent rotation guy keeping the DLine fresh.
Like the whole draft, not a fan of small receivers, Sanders, since we have enough of those. Da'Rick is going to be a star.
Having Datone developing in our rotation will be incredible.
You have Sturgis at 6b - do you feel Hopkins will be gone by then or he's better than Hopkins?
