The Niners drafted here for size and speed, despite the lack of actual football production or experience at their position of need (CB-Culliver played most of his time at FS, only converting to CB in his final year).
So, the Niners spend their first three picks (and had to give up two others) for not one, not two, but three developmental projects.
I wonder if we go 1-15 next year and end up drafting first...
Baalke said he likes big CBs. Culliver was one of the biggest and fastest available. However, from what I read just not the best available. I hoep they COACH EM UP. Although I like what I read on him more than Van Dyke who the Raiders took right after us.
Its a good thing that we brought over a badass secondary coach, just as we have a badass linebackers coach and a former NFL QB for head-coach. I wonder if this Culliver guy is as much a toy for the 49ers new special teams coach as he is meant to be a player on the defense.
