49er Big Board guess your 7 game...

I listed 50 that we may be drafting, pick 7 players from the list or your own list and let's see who gets the closest after the draft???....
I said 7 because we will probably trade away some picks and all of our draft picks won't start or even make the team. So, 7 for 7 rounds.
Feel free to change your mind until May...

My 7 are in bold...

1. CB Justin Gilbert
2. WR Sammy Watkins

Im confused.
You're a little early on the game and we play it where you pick any 20 players (not out of a list) and whoever gets the most right wins. You can edit up until the night before the draft. Also, whoever puts up the thread to run the game has to come back and score everyone's and put up a leader board. Whoever starts the thread if they don't want to do that shouldn't make the thread. I'd probably wait until mid April and give everyone like 3 weeks to fill it out. If you start it too early it will just drop and not many will join most likely. This way we can see how the first month of free agency goes and our draft needs will be much clearer.

Here is the other game we played called Ultimate NFL Draft Guru Challenge. Look at the 3rd post down it has all the questions I asked. Problem is it takes awhile to score everyone's answers. Making the questions is the fun part but it's not fun coming back after the draft and grading them. Problem with the game is everyone wants to play before the draft then after the draft nobody cares to come back and see the results or care how they did. They are more worried about the 49ers draft.

And here are the threads for the last 2 years pick 20 players game and how it was played and the results.

That's cool, I can never find a good draft challenge site or any that you can actually win something! http://www.ourlads.com/nfl-mock-draft-challenge/
is the best one I've seen...

I want one that has a scoring system, like 5 points for a correct pick, 3 points within 1 pick, 10 points for predicting a trade etc. etc....

It would just make the draft more interesting to watch, kinda like u said... everyone is interested in the 9ers picks during the draft and of course I am as well,
but after round 2 it gets boring and most don't care.

6 for now, undecided on the 7th
I can't put my finger on why...but I just think the world of Aaron Murray and believe he will be a fantastic NFL QB when he gets healthy.
Hageman is on this list because I believe Baalke might see him as the BPA if he falls to #30.

Seven by position rather than player:

DT R. Hageman (if he drops and Baalke sees him as BPA)
WR1 Jordan Matthews, Jarvis Landry, Devonte Adams (big and/or possession receiver)
WR2 Brandin Cooks, Odell Beckham (quick, explosive receiver)
CB1 Bradley Roby
CB2 Kyle Fuller
C Travis Swanson, Weston Richburg (must be able to play OG or OC)
SS Buchanon, Ward, Loston, Dixon (a book end with Reid who can play either safety spot would be best)

How many of these guys might the niners get in the first three rounds? I think they could fill their top four needs--WR, SS, CB, C. If Landry falls to the 2nd and a C falls to the 3rd...wow...all my 9er top needs would be filled with good players.

He has a strong arm and is pretty accurate. Drew Brees is short. So is Russell Wilson. I don't see why he can't do it? I think he can.
It's really easy. Just go for the dudes with the long arms.

My latest thinking on SEC QBs. "SEC is where 5 star QBs go to die". Something about having 5 star offensive linemen that get you 3 times the protection/time than in the NFL. You are better off having a weak OL, and adjust accordingly. One could say Peyton Manning is a SEC product. I would say he is a product of Archie Manning and would have succeeded in any conference.

Every position in the NFL is dominated by SEC players ...but QB (Stafford & Manning & Newton... and Tebow).

Interesting theory. It would be good to see some data to back that up. My own personal theory on scouting NFL QBs that I have absolutely no data to back it up with is, you want the guy that made a program briefly relevant on the national stage in college football. The team was bad to mediocre before he took over as QB, and even better if it goes back to being bad to mediocre after he leaves. That's a guy that plays with average college talent but makes everyone around him better. Thats a guy who isn't standing back behind an NFL Oline throwing to wide open NFL receivers against inferior competition. Rather he's making quick decisions and fitting the ball into guys who are well covered. Some examples: Aaron Rodgers at Cal. Matt Ryan at BC, Drew Brees at Purdue, just to name a few. Of course, I'm sure there are plenty of exceptions and counter examples. Just my unsubstantiated theory.
Kyle Fuller
Donte Moncrief
Deone Buchannon
Martavis Bryant
Keith McGill
Dri Archer
David Fales
Where is Phillip Gaines - CB - Rice? He's our 3rd round pick.

Yeah but Murray has never had a 5 star offensive line at Georgia. Its easy to think as much because he is in the SEC but Mark Richt has made a living on recruiting 3 and 4 star talent and coaching them up to high levels of play.
