Why are people so upset that we trade the 4th rd pick? only about 4 or 5 guys will make the team. We don't have many open roster spots. The 2 guys from yesterday and 2 guys from today will make the team along with Ted Ginn and maybe 1 more guy that we draft.
Love the pick he's a beast Like i said earlier what 20 year old doesn't need more motivation in life at what they are doing. He doesn't have character issues he has work ethic issues. wait til he its that hill I only think Williams was a better OT than Davis I wasn't too fond of Bulaga
He isn't that guy they were showing on tv awhile back that had the huge man-boobs is he? Please say that was someone else!

Love the trade up(Miami was definitely going to swoop up Davis, a 4th doesn't mean s**t to us right now)

I really Love the month Baalke is having.

Totally agree with you man, I doubt any player will be lazy with our coach to keep him in line.

and was it just me Memphis, but Anthony did not "look" fat. Usually when I hear the fat and lazy talk you can see it through the poor dudes suit.....Anthony looked like a fit guy in a suit anyway

He looks the part, didn't look fat at all to me.
Funny. Imagine if we stayed at 13 and some other team jumped in front of us to get Davis. I guarantee we'd be hearing about "why didn't we just trade up? Our front office teh suxors!!!!!" for the next five years. Bottom line is this, we NEEDED O-line in the worst way and we attacked that problem head on. No, Iupati and Davis aren't sexy picks because they can't return INT's or break out of the backfield for 80+ yards.

But they fulfilled not only a want, but a NEED.

Obviously we saw something in this kid we really like to trade up for him. Why even take the risk of someone moving in front of you if you really believe that this kid is 'it'? It was even reported after the draft that there were in fact other teams looking to trade up (in front of us) to get him. It was the RIGHT DECISION. Get over it.

I swear San Fran has the most fickle fans....

And quite a few spin doctors that would make Rush Limbaugh proud.

Most Niner fans have got to be pretty pleased with Round 1. I really like the Iupati selection at #17, and I think that Davis can be a dominant OT in this league. Way to really address the teams biggest concern.

Davis is still a bit of gamble (IMHO), but let's be honest...90% of every kid who gets drafted is a gamble in some way, shape or form. His upside is limitless, but I think he'll need some time to learn and adjust to the men's game.

Initially, I felt that jumping up two spots - at the cost of a 4th round pick - was ludicrous. Neither team in front of us had Davis targeted. But we aren't in the War Room and offers and scenarios fly fast and furious during that 10 minute pick period. Some team(s) must have had Davis on their short list. Time will tell if it was the prudent move.

Feel good about Day 1. Still some top-flight talent available today.

Wasn't the point that both teams ahead of us had indicated that they were interested in trading? So any other team, with different needs, could suddenly appear ahead of us

Trading up two picks and losing a 4th round pic was just flat out dumb to get davis. yes we did target him but theres no way the broncos or dolphins would have taken him and if the broncos traded there pic and they did pick davis we could have picked iupati with the 13th and bulaga with the 7th

Hindsight is always 20/20. The Broncos and Dolphins went on record several times saying that they wanted to trade out of their 1st round spots, which is exactly what both did. I don't know if another team would have traded to get Davis, but I can guarantee that the 11th spot was going to be traded anyway. For the 49ers, why take that risk if this kid has huge potential and Bulaga wasnt high on many people's draft boards??

With what we know now, it would have been a reach to get Bulaga at 13 or 17 because nobody else wanted him until 22! I like the pick and what I like even more is the fact that the 49ers are finally growing some nutz and taking care of business!

Not going to name names(don't need the warning %), but there are quite a few guys on this site that willfully misconstrue facts to support their own ridiculous speculation(because there is nothing holding it up otherwise). I guess to start drama, but who knows? I agree that the players we drafted were the right ones for the teams needs, I am happy with Davis and Iupati.
i like the davis pick, just dont want to see him in #75 cus if he struggles it will take 2 seconds for the jonas jennings remarks

I'm bummed to lose the 4th rounder, but this post is spot on. Well done!
I'm VERY HIGH on this pick. Don't think we needed to trade up to get him, I think we should have let the cards play out and we probably would have got him at 13 (Especially with Bulaga still out there).

Not that I'm upset about losing the 4th rounder, I think we could have used that to trade up from 17 to grab Earl Thomas. Instead we have to see him twice a year.

But I will live with Iupati. He should be good for a long time to come and I trust Brown and Solari to make him the best he can be. The 49ers biggest weakness, the offensive line, became a strength in less than an hour last night!
