I would rather have a Sherman type than anybody else. Can you not say the same? Look at the last play. He bats that ball because he is tall with super long arms. He can reach it at 6'3" with very long arms. A shorter DB might not reach it. Which makes a difference in the game.
Except he doesn't have super long arms, for his height, his length is actually average, only 32 inches.
Unless the 49ers are going to start playing the same sort of pass interference on every play type system, their best bet is a high quality cover guy that can play equally well in man or zone coverage. Dennard is the type of player that you can leave the other team's best receiver on an island and not worry about it. As a replacement for Brown, he might very well be an improvement with his skills. Terrific player that I think may wind up in the Top 10 even after all is said and done.

9ers gonna have to trade up for this playmaker.
Carlos Rogers is a goner and it looks like my man-crush for Jarvis Landry will be gone with the wind.
I have a feeling they are going to trade up for a corner and get a WR in the 2nd round (or trade back into 1st who knows) this draft is hella deep in receivers and I'm betting we let Brown/Wright walk and either cut or trade Rogers making CB the priority heading into the draft.
I hope he slips in the draft to around the 18-22 range. It looks like there are some who rate Gilbert as the #1 corner, so this might help Dennard drop to spot where we could potentially trade up to get him.
