Since we are talking OL for this upcoming draft, I was curious as to who your favorite 49er lineman was. These guys are sometimes unsung heroes and are our blue collar workers. We win and lose because of these guys.
I'm having a hard time choosing. It's a three way tie between Sopolu, Barton and McIntyre. I used to love watching Guy McIntyre pull. He had to be the best in the league. Barton and Sopolu were also rock solid. Choices.
My favorite since I'm from Hawaii is Sapolu. I think it really solidified it for me when he played Center with a cast on and was hiking the bacll Lefty. He also wasn't the biggest guy so to do that with a cast and block a 300lb lineman deserves alot of respect IMO. I also met him a couple of times at charity events in Hawaii and he was pretty cool.
