Originally I was dead set against drafting Ertz or Eifert but what has me worried is the Spy vs. Spy activity we have going against Seattle. We know that Carroll has built the Hawks to beat the Niners. So how do you go about beating the Hawks with their stellar cornerbacks? The answer is to exploit the middle. Earl Thomas is a great safety but he's short. Seattle's linebackers are the weakest link to their defense.
Having two stud TEs allows us to work the middle of the field to gain the competitve edge.
Aside from trying to gain the upper hand against the Hawks, would our top picks be better used taking defensive line or safety help? Yes. But would having a 6'6" Eifert help our offensive cause? Absolutely!
This is a tough call. In the end, I still say draft defense and don't worry about Seattle as they haven't proven anything yet. Thoughts?
