I dont mind the pick. i mean we have to accept the fact that Manny just cant get it done.

Last year lets not forget there were at least 4 games last year where if he D may have held, we would of had the W.

We need a pass rusher, and I aint never heard of him, but i'll support the pick.

My thing is, are there gonna be any damn QB's left by the time we pick again. I mean even if we move up, i hope we still have a good bunch to choose from.

I was thinking Ponder, Dalton, or Kaepernick. But s**t they may all be gone soon.

Dalton or Kaepernick may fall to us in 2nd...dunno...we'll see

People say this pulling it out of their butt but you never know whats going to happen, or who is going to do what. Jake Locker was supposed to be a late 1st rounder and look what happened? Maybe the 49ers had an inkling that some other team like the Cowboys were going to take this guy? Both the Redskins and Texans were heavily rumored to be interested in him.


If the 49ers believe in this guy, if they thought he was a top talent, then you pull the trigger and draft him rather than trading down and risking losing him. This is why we are fans on the forums and not professionals getting paid, you have no way of knowing what the pro's actually knew about this guy and other teams intentions for taking him.

Hope they're right! I'm glad we acknowledge our weakness in the pass rush and selected what they thought could fill a hole that desperately needs help.
