I thought the Niners showed a lot of conviction, aggressively targeting their offensive line. Anthony Davis and Mike Iupati got plugged in and started throughout the year, so you can't say the Niners didn't have a plan. Taylor Mays wasn't a big contributor. and NaVorro Bowman was a special-teams stud instead of a regular, but he has a chance to develop. No leaks with the top picks, however.
Draft grade: B | Current Grade: B-plus
I think the draft went alright, I didn't realize the guys we started were majority starters throughout the year but I do know all the talk there has been of Taylor Mays. Thoughts on Kiper's re-do?
I don't understand all the negativity with Mays. I think with better coaching he will improve. We should be prepared to play the long game with that draft.
I definitely hear that one, I think our weakest point of the team was offense, if the defense touches the field less a lot of other things will start falling into place as the 9ers D won't be in a tight spot all the time. The pressure will actually be on the other team's offense instead of it being on our defense needing to bail our team out. I think Mays will develop into being a really good player also, just need to give to him some time, I totally agree with that notion, also what could be a contributing factor is the 9ers coaching staff kept switching them in and out and that's a hard environment to succeed in. I think play calling and player rotation definitely played a factor.
