Jimmie Ward Strong Safety

Great pick if we plan to use him as our nickel cb to replace rodgers. Don't like the pick if we plan to use him at safety to replace whitner.
Just saw the press conference he gave. What a great personality this kid has...I can see how he could've won the front office and Harbaugh over with his enthusiasm and love of the game. You get a sense this kid is ready to immerse himself in football and get himself ready to play/contribute on day one.

Oh, thanks. I'm sure sooner or later we will start seeing some press conferences/audio conferences from Jimmie and Stevie on 9ers.com. Can't wait to hear from them.

Great pick. In two years this guy is going to know how to play every position in the secondary,
I believe Lamarcus Joyner will be a better NFL nickle back, attacking ball carriers and covering slots/slants than Ward.
With that said, I think Ward is a good pick to transition to a full-time corner position.
Now the niners can go after Joyner in the second or third round.

Despite his smaller frame, Joyner plays like he's 6-2 and 225 pounds,
Plays fast with natural acceleration to go from 0 to 60 in a flash
NFL scouts will be hard-pressed to find a better inch-for-inch defender in the country
The versatile defensive back has bounced between safety and cornerback most of his career,
but played mostly a cornerback role as a senior, seeing a lot of action as a nickel back covering the slot receiver.
