Mayo's Niners Top 3 picks

there are a lot of good ideas here we will see very soon what happens I want a WR, but I think they need depth at DL and a FS the most.

25. Datone Jones DE
34. Eric Reid FS
61. Aaron Dobson WR

Fair enough. But, the way I look at it is this, what we need is a legit deep threat wideout and when you play the deep ball, more than often you will need to go up to compete for the ball. At 5'8", that is a distinct disadvantage. Austin's vertical leap is only 32" while Hunter's is 39.5".

I think I'd argue that Tavon Austin would fit real well with us and succeed in the NFL despite playing against the big corners in our division. Big hits happen all the time against receivers of different sizes. Tavon is a different case, absolutely, but any receiver can get injured at any time.


If you play him in the slot yes he will be fine. But, that's not what we want, we need a deep threat wideout. I am not banking on WRATHman44's DeSean Jackson argument that Austin will be open 24/7. I rather go with a prototypical deep ball specialist in Hunter. But, in any case Hunter shouldn't be a direct comparison to Austin cos Austin is supposed to go in the 1st. For a 1st rounder wideout, I would definitely go with Cordarrelle Patterson, is not even close !! This is academic anyway.

I don't think we necessarily need a deep threat receiver. Receivers that make plays are all that I look for, honestly. And who's to say Crabtree can't be that type of receiver? We now have a QB that can take the shot down the field. With Alex, we rarely saw that. We might see more of it now with Kaep throwing long to Crabtree and Vernon.


We definitely need a deep threat wideout. Everybody knows that. That was why we got Randy Moss, only that he didn't quite live up to expectations. Kaep had already been throwing deep quite frequently last season, but he just didn't have a good enough go-to target in Moss.. Crab and Vernon are mainly good for up to intermediate plays, say 20-35 yards or so. But, if you are talking about big vertical bombs of 50 yards and above, we don't have that guy. Crab is not fast enough to burn the DBs that far. Kaep is capable of making 70 yards throws, if we have a guy that can burn that far, it will definitely happen.

It'd be nice to have a weapon like that, but we've been successful the last 2 seasons without a speed threat like that. Who knows, AJ Jenkins could be that guy if he puts the time in. 20-35 yard plays from Crabs and Vernon are good. We're still a running team when it comes down to it.

Yes, we have been successful, but not successful enough unfortunately. We are just a couple of weapons away. We are no longer just a run team anymore, just look at the snaps. We are fully balanced now, I would say is easily 50/50. While rushing will always be part of our game, passing has become a huge reason why we have now been labelled as an explosive offense.

Trade #31 and # 74 to Chicago Bears

20. Datone Jones DE UCLA
34. Jesse Williams NT/DE Alabama
61. Phillip Thomas FS Fresno St.

I like this. We need to get a strong DL. Then draft a couple TE in later rounds.

I really like Reid. I'm also wondering if David Amerson might be a guy we pick to play FS. Big and fast and has played safety.


Nice size at 6"1" and runs a 4.44. Should go some where in rds 3 and 4.

Crazy to think Amerson would have been a top 10 pick last year

There is no doubt Eric Reid and David Amerson will be my top DB picks.
