My off-season to get BIGGER, YOUNGER, FASTER ( includes videos )

Hi guys, this off-season & draft gives us plenty of salary cap space to resign any of our core players coming up for a contract. It's the main reason I didn't resign many players. Let me know what you guys think. I have armadillo skin. Thanks in advance ;-)

Note: I mostly used the draft simulator to help me determine who might be available at each pick: http://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/ ;

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Resign:
K Dawson .. if price is right
ILB Wilhoite
WR Osgood ... vet minimum

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do not resign:
Goodbye and a big thank you to all other 49er free agents:

Jonathan Goodwin
Mario Manningham
Tarell Brown
Colt McCoy
Anthony Dixon
Demarcus Dobbs
Eric Wright
Perrish Cox
Anquan Boldin
Donte Whitner

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cuts:
Carlos Rogers
Craig Dahl
Jon Baldwin
Adam Snyder

2014 NFL Draft:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1- 30 S HA'SEAN CLINTON-DIX ALABAMA - Size, speed, defends the pass or run well. Dix & Reid will form a studly safety duo for the next decade

https

2- 56 DE STEPHON TUITT NOTRE DAME - Size, strength, perfect for the 3-4 DE. Tuitt & Tank will form a studly DE duo for the next decade

https

2- 61 CB BRADLEY ROBY OHIO STATE - Size, Insane speed, physical.

https

3- 77 WR JARVIS LANDRY LSU - Quick, sudden, precise. Fights for every ball, fearless.

https

3- 94 WR DONTE MONCREIF OLE MISS - Size, deceptive speed, tough, good hands

https

3- compensatory - MARTAVIS BRYANT CLEMSON - Size, speed, athletic specimen that has solid skills but was over-shadowed

https

4- 125 C MARCUS MARTIN USC - Size, strength, has tons of talent.

https


5- 158 QB LOGAN THOMAS VIRGINIA TECH - Size, good arm and can run the ball. Decent backup QB to develop

https


6- 189 CB AARON COLVIN OKLAHOMA - Size, speed, instincts, great prospect but injured. Perfect late round injured player pick

https

7- 219 S NICKOE WHITLEY MISSISSIPPI STATE - Size, decent speed, good instincts. Has had previous injuries

https

7- 220 RB DRI ARCHER KENT STATE - Insane speed and open field running. Can be our great return specialist EXTREMELY FUN TO WATCH

https

7- 222 FB TREY MILLARD OKLAHOMA - Speed, Tough strong athletic fullback that can run. Perfect practice squad backup for Miller

https


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Projected Roster:

QB - Kaepernick, Thomas, Bethel-Thompson
RB - Gore, Lattimore, Hunter, James
FB - Miller, Millard
TE - Davis, McDonald, Celek, Carrier (49ers like his speed)
OL - Staley, Davis, Iupati, Boone, Kilgore, Looney, Martin, Seymour, Marquardt, Netter
WR - Crabtree, Patton, Moncreif, Landry, Bryant, Osgood (special teamer)
DL - McDonald, Smith, Dorsey, Williams, Tank, Tuitt, Dial, Jerrod-Eddie, Okoye
ILB - Willis, Bowman, Moody, Wilhoite
OLB - Smith, Brooks, Lemonier, Skuta
CB - Culliver, Brock, Roby, Colvin, Morris
S - Reid, Clinton-Dix, Whitley, Spillman
ST - Lee, Dawson, Archer, McDermott, Ventrone

==========================================================

Bottomline: Only old players left are Justin Smith, Frank Gore & Osgood (cheap special teamer). I am guessing 2014 will be the last year for these 2 greats. There will be plenty of salary cap space to extend Kaep, Aldon Smith, Iupati or Crabtree if they show more development next year. There should also be room to add a solid offensive lineman or cornerback in free agency as well. Also, since I didn't resign most of our free agents, there should be plenty of roster spots available for these draft picks to make the team.

The biggest issue is that none of the first 6 picks will likely be there where you're picking them. HHCD is the top safety in the draft and a top 20-25 player by most accounts; he's just not likely to fall that far. Tuitt is viewed as a late 1st rounder/early 2nd guy and I don't see all of those three WRs getting out of the 2nd round (especially Landry). Maybe Bryant and Moncrief last to the mid-3rd, but to the end of the 3rd? Just not likely. The only guy who might be there when you picked him is Roby, but I'd bet good money that after he runs a sub-4.40 at the combine, he doesn't make it past the mid-2nd.

It would rival the 2011 draft IMO if it turned out this way, but it just doesn't seem realistic.

Yea, I agree with you. It's odd that I was able to make these selections using that draft simulator. It just seemed to good to be true so I had to create this mock ;-)

But maybe it's just a nice reminder that with our boat-load of picks and this year's depth, we have a really good chance to build something special and long lasting. Really excited for our off-season this year.

I like the players you selected in the draft but if we let Boldin go we either have to replace him with another vet FA WR or draft one in the 1st round (unless a game ready one magically slips into the 2nd round).

I like Tuitt but I just don't see the need for him right now. Justin will be here 2 more years I think, even if he isn't, we have bigger needs at WR, CB and SS and potentially interior OL depending on what happens with Iupati after 2014 season and maybe at C if the staff doesn't think Kilgore or Looney can step in effectively.

Ray Mac isn't a puppy but he will be around a few more years and we have Tank who will likely be the guy that takes JS's place, aside from that TJE played very well and is young. Again, I like Tuitt, I like him a lot and I agree he fits our system, however, for a team in win now mode, drafting a guy at a position in the 2nd round where he would have to prove himself just to be the #3 or 4 guy (and could very well be the #5 guy considering our staff's love affair with playing vets over young guys behind JS, RM, TJE and Tank) it's just not the direction to go right now, we need guys in the first 2 rounds (at least) that will either start or play a significant role in 2014.
I also think that most of these players will be gone before you picked them (particularly Landry), but there is a ton of talent in this draft, and SOMEONE had to be taken by the simulator to let those guys drop to you. We don't KNOW where anyone is going, and this draft would have me pumped. I like the tough choices you made, and I honestly think that a healthy Crabtree, more practice reps for Kap, and a productive camp from Landry could absorb the loss of Boldin.

edit: I'm also in favor of ANYONE named Archer, especially if they are accompanied by Lana

I want HaHa Clinton Dix just so I can say HaHa you got picked off by HaHa

I feel like saying HaHa, because you made a HaHa about saying HaHa when they get picked off by HaHa.
Really like the players and like many here don't think they'll be there.

That said, Crabs fell into our laps and there is always a player of 2 who fall. Just not that many.

This pretty much wraps this mock up
Its more realistic to project us getting Buchannon from Washington instead of Clinton-Dix at 30.. And hes a stud himself so i'd be happy to have him....

HaHa that'd be funny if HaHa made a joke and everyone said HaHa you're funny HaHa

I agree with you about our needs but I got us 2 CB's, 2 safety's, and a center. You might be right about Tuitt. We are pretty deep at DL but I was looking for a difference maker for the next 10 years. No guarantees of course.

As for the WR opposite Crabtree, yea, we might take some lumps early on but I think Moncreif is good enough to ease that transition. Patton & Landry would help as well.

It's true, it seems unrealistic even to me. I used that draft simulator (except the compensation pick) and was surprised who was available. Anyways, I'm really happy Baalke put us in a good position in the draft this year.

I like Buchannon but I am unsure about Buchannon's coverage skills. I like Jimmie Ward a little better.
Nice. I wouldn't mind getting that draft
