I like that this regime seems to value merit over draft status.

Case in point: 2011 undrafted rookie Demarcus Dobbs over 2010 second-rounder Taylor Mays.

How can we explain Colin Jones then? I didn't see him do much besides down a punt and be the first guy to miss a tackle on each kick. I think it matters WHO the coch was for the draft pick. I like Harbaugh, but it doesn't seem like he's NOT proud.

Harbaugh/Baalke cut Ronald Johnson and Curtis Holcomb, two guys they drafted this year.

Jones was definitely a Seely pick.

Holcomb is on IR, and ROJO will be on the PS, at least initially.

So you proved my point: Ronald Johnson isn't on the 53-man roster.

With Nolan/McCloughan/Singletary, how many years did we have to wait for an under-performing high-round player to be sent packing? This regime jettisoned Mays after one year (which shows a willingness to cut losses) and allowed two hard-working undrafted rookies to make the team (which shows they value performance).
How many Stanford rookies made the team? It seemed most of them (if not all) were on the cut list. Now it will be interesting to see who they put on the practice squad. Many of the cuts may be attractive to other teams.

This. Seeley got two picks (Jones and Castonzo). Shows how much power and influence he has on this staff.

Agree. Good to see
I am excited that him and Ian Williams made the roster with some good coaching from Jim Tomsula and Fangio these guys can become real assets for us in the future. Williams is a big bodied guy who can excell in the 3-4 in the future and Dobbs was exciting to watch in the preseason he has a motor that never stops.

Hopefully they both can develop into legit backups (maybe even some spot starting duty). That will increase their value further down the road for either a trade or not having to draft a D-lineman early next year.

Dobbs has unique push, maybe we can develop him into Justin Smith's replacement (still several years away).
