We just drafted a rb, why would we need to draft another one?

I heard it's not wins, but actually playing time-based (i.e. Smith must play 92% of the Cheifs' snaps). So not really performance-based, but more of health-based.

Do you have a link for where you heard this? Because I can't find anything. All I've seen is right after the trade, Kawakami saying he was hearing the conditional pick was dependent on how many wins the Chiefs had. I'd prefer a time-based condition because I think the Chiefs might actually have a pretty good record.

This is the first concrete statement I've seen about the conditional pick in the Alex Smith trade: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl/news/20130506/rookie-minicamps-peter-king-monday-morning-quarterback/?sct=uk_wr_a1

Peter King says the 49ers will get a 2nd round pick if the Chiefs go 8-8 or better, otherwise it's a 3rd rounder.

Rooting for the Chief's to rack up the wins.

RB

How is RB on anyone's list at all?

The list is CB, CB, S, C, WR*, DE/DT**, OT,

*If Jenkins sucks.
**If Justin Smith leaves.

The real issue next year is going to be resigning/extending Aldon Smith, Iupati, and C. Kap.

No need for a rb we have a huge crop of rbs even if gore retires. receivers is a possible need depending how everyone plays next year. corner is a definite need next year so i hope we prioritize that first

I made this comment before we wasted pick #131 on a broke knees RB... N I stick by it IOM we'll need to draft a RB next yr maybe not as high now ...I think CB will be our biggest need though along with S maybe even a C/G depending on what happens with looney N kilgore

The way it is setup, the 49ers win pretty much eitherway. If the Chiefs bomb and do poorly, the 49ers get a very early 3rd rounder. If they excel and do well, the 49ers get a mid-late 2nd rounder.

This. For 2014, I see the needs as follows:


1. CB
2. CB
3. CB
4. WR(If it looks like Crabtree won't be in SF long--term)
5. Safety

Pretty much, yeah.

its part of the reason we took Reid this year - so we aren't totally green in 2014. May have taken Cyprien at 34 if he was still there too
A lot can change in the course of a year. See the articles below about the top draft prospects in 2013 (published in 2012).

What I hope is that our picks in 2012 and 2013 pan out, so that in 2014 we can address other positions early on that we haven't drafted for in recent years. I think CB should be high on the list. If AJ Jenkins and Quinton Patton do well, we can go after a shiftier,speedy type of receiver that has the ability to return punts and kicks (isn't Kyle Williams contract up this year?), tackle, and possibly safety. We could also possibly be looking for a kicker since Phil Dawson is on a one year deal. After that, it's all BPA.

Yeah, a lot can change during the season. But I have to say a lot of draft analysts don't really do much work putting together pre-season lists, from what I can tell. Its mostly a collection of big names, not really based on watching players.

I have QB, RB and WR finished. Going to do Offensive lineman tonight and probably do defense on Thursday/Friday. Post Saturday.

Some general thoughts:
QB - Should be a deeper class than last draft. Before the season is played, I could see Bridgewater, Manziel, Murray going in the top 10. And then see Tajh Boyd and Derek Carr with a good chance to go in the first. The QB class is a bit undersized though (Manziel, Murray, Boyd are all 6'1). I'm not as big of a fan of Marriota, McCarron, Fales. Brett Hundley is a sleeper, if he comes out early he will shoot up draft boards (will be an elgible soph like Manziel).

WR - Looks like a bit of a down year in terms of depth. Marqise Lee and Sammy Watkins will be under a microscope to prove they are worth high picks. Despite their hype, both have to have great junior years to contend for top 10 status. Brandon Coleman is the wildcard who could potentially over take them due to his outstanding measurables, we will have to see how much he improves. Phillip Dorsett is a sleeper, pure speedster.

RB - MAJOR down year. Right now I'd say the weakest crop of senior RBs I can remember. A name to remember though is Marion Grice on ASU, he is my darkhorse pick at the position. Otherwise you are looking at guys like Ka'Deem Carey, DAT, and Seastrunk that can be weapons, but not even close to every down backs. A sleeper junior is George Atkinson III. I think Carey and DAT can definately be weapons on the NFL level, but will need to find OC's that can use them creatively.
