Harbaugh's hidden benefit

Not sure if this is in the right section (if not can the Mods move it, thanks) because I don't talk about any particular players just the draft in general.

I feel really good going into the 2011 season, we have the coach we want, I think we have big time players in a lot of positions (ILB, TE, WR, RB) and one good draft we could hopefully do a lot better next season (sound familiar?).

I think we are in the best position to "hit" on this draft in a long time. Something that may have been overlooked is the fact that Harbaugh should have inside knowledge of a lot of the college players coming out in the 2011 draft.

I know other teams will have done scouting, but he has had to game-plan for a lot of these players and knows their strengths and weaknesses, probably more so than other coaches who are only now reading/watching scouting reports. I do realise they have scouts watching throughout the season, but I suspect not nearly to the same level as Harbaugh has.

I also think that being an offensive play-caller he is in a better position to find a good CB (or general defensive players) in the later rounds as he will have seen more tape on them then most, if not all, other teams.
Good post. This was an a benefit that I thought of, but kept forgetting to bring up.

His knowledge of the Pac-10 players will be very beneficial for the draft.
I'm just excited to see what QB we draft. I'm sure you've all seen that Maiocco tweet that mentioned he wrote very accurate assessments of Romo, Garrard, and Harrington.

How does it feel knowing that somewhere in this draft... is some kid that is going to be drafted in the 3rd of 4th round, not knowing that he's going to be groomed by Harbaugh, launching a thousand comparisons to Walsh/Montana?

Poor kid. Hope he's ready to step into the limelight.

Thanks.

I hope Baalke listens to him when it comes to the draft, by the sound of it they will work closely together so I am very hopeful for this draft!

I loved the Singletary hiring (at first), but even then I always got the impression he was a motivator rather than someone who could effectively judge talent, so I was worried about his influence when it came to the draft. Whereas Harbaugh has had to judge talent throughout his career (bringing in players for Stanford)

Agree with this post 100%. Seachickens had a pretty good draft in Carroll's first year out of college.

It's all about the WB position though. If Harbaugh can draft or sign a QB and develop him, we've got the players everywhere else to compete.

Any quality draft picks on top of that, will be icing on the NFC West Championship cake.

now what makes you think Harbaugh would waste his time doing GEEK?

i think between Harbaugh and Baalke we're going to have some really good drafts in the next few years. They both have a lot of experience evaluating players.
