Great Post MadDog. Like you I like to pretend I'm GM. After two years of watching Baalke/coaches/scouts draft I think I have a decent feel of the type of players they like. So this year I pretended to scout players through their eyes instead of what I thought. So I just wanted to go through the Reid pick on what I think the FO was thinking. I'm going to compare him to Vacarro.
I really believe they thought Reid was the #1 safety over Vaccaro. Out of all the safties in the draft he had the best height/weight/speed (long arms, 4.4 forty) and Baallke likes to draft players with these intagiblies that the coaches can coach up, he hits hard like Goldson. Vacorro hits hard too but Reid hits with more authority. Last he fits are scheme better than Vacarro. Vacarro is very good man saftey but we rarely ask are safties to play man because are front seven is so good. Reid is the better center field safety, but not by much, that can roam around and blow mother f--- up. This is going to be fun to watch this year.
