Round 3, #80, the San Francisco 49ers selects Chris Culliver, CB, South Carolina

This doesn't sound good;

"Chris Culliver. He let Ted Ginn beat him on a slant and overall he did not look confident at corner back."

This guy sounds like a safety from reports. I can't believe they drafted 2 safeties in the 3rd round in the last couple of years and are trying to convert the to CB. Could be worse, could have drafted a DE/OLB to be FB.

Dude, it's his first padded practice in the NFL, going against a NFL vet. Did I mention he just got the playbook less than a weak ago?

2 steps forward, 1 step back.

He's tall and has 4.4 speed. He only played 1 year as a CB.

Hopefully Brown, Adams and Culliver perform well as our #2, nickel, and dime (in god knows what order)

If that is our line up, we are going to get burned all year long...

So are Mays and Lawson. While height and athletic ability are huge benefits, they are not determining factors for good football players.

Remember though, the 49ers did the same thing with Reggie Smith before converting him to safety. I wouldn't be surprised if we drafted Culliver to eventually take over the FS role in a few years.

See Oak? See what I have to deal with all the time? LOL!!!!
sounds like this guy isnt doing too bad however i doubt he can start this year or the next but he sounds like a great FS option in the future adn a great #3 CB
Definetely needs more experience & confidence which he will only get by playing. I could see him & Adams playing very big roles by midseason

I hope he plays every snap on defense in the preseason, so he can learn.

This would really help him out
lets relax, in green bay last yaer they had young cb's step in...so did atlanta, teams do it and succeed. its about having good coaching and a very good pass rush

if aldon smith/willis/harlson/mcdonald/bowman etc can get to the qb...the cb's will be helped immensly and we'll be a solid D.

fangio's D is predicated on getting to the qb
