Bump
So we drafted a cheap version of Michael Lewis.
It's not who the Niners wanted, but they got'im and I'm rooting for him.

They wanted Nate Allen.

When Allen was picked Baalke looked up at the ceiling, then did a "damnit" flex...and then the room went into work mode, trying to figure something out. Singletary seemed unhappy as well.

When it came time for the pick, they were not excited, and casually shook hands and Baalke took his sheet from in front of him and crumpled it up and threw it away, disappointedly.

Let's see what he can do.

*edit - and now that I think about it, I don't think Sing left the room because there was nothing more for him to say or because he was upset, but rather to go somewhere quieter to get ready to make the phone call to Mays.

Cool! He's a hard hitter with good physical attributes. But he's not going to start is he. With Michael Lewis and Dashon Goldson. Goldson had a fantastic year and Lewis is consistently pretty good, though he had an off-year statistically.

You mean the bigger faster version
For a minute folks in the zone were arguing between Berry vs Mays.

and we get Mays mid-2nd round...I'm for it!

What is wrong with Michael Lewis?
Hate it hate it
This draft is all about the future. Players who won't play right away. It's the Backup Plan of the NFL. Like the movie that's coming out.
The War Room behavior makes sense. All things being equal if the Niners continue to lose Baalke will have more drafts in his future than Sing.

I think they all wanted Allen the most, cept Sing was just willing to trade more picks away to get him....makes sense...he is probably on the hotter seat. What does he care what shape the Niners are in in terms of late round developments when he gets the boot
BPA can't go wrong

Basically, he's a 5th LB who plays the run (always in the box) and hasn't defended a pass in 6 years. LOL. And he has serious concussion problems.

Taylor is his younger, faster clone.
