draw the line after #5 and that is the best possible outcome. I think the dark horse is Ahmad Brooks. Remember how bad we wanted him in the supplemental draft? He has potential.

The guys on bold have to work hard to.. first.. be starters, the probowl is very far for them.

The problem is that if those guys do not play decently, any offensive player (WR, TE, QB at least) will have problems to excel

A lot of those players on the OP list, I would not have. Personally, if I had to make a list, this would be it:

1. Willis
2. Vernon
3. Justin Smith
4. Gore
5. Andy Lee
6. Braylon
7. Whitner
8. Akers
9. Outside chance for Goodwin since he's been there before recently.
10. Outside chance for Brooks.

1. Willis
2. Andy Lee
3. Justin Smith (should be a lock since he's been here, but he's missed some due to playing a position that doesn't get a lot of attention - he's been one of the best dlinemen in the league for a while now top 5 no questions)
4. Vernon Davis
5. Mike Iupati (because he's getting love when it isn't deserved already)

I expect us to have 4 pro bowlers, hopefully we can have 5 or 6.
Pat Willis
Justin Smith
Vern Davis
Mike Iupati
Frank Gore
David Akers
Braylon Edwards

(not inserting Andy Lee into the discussion until I know how long his recovery is)
Staley has got a long way to go. I agree with that.

Iupati?
You forget Ted Ginn Jr. and Brian Jennings.

The only lock is Willis, pretty much the only way he wont make it is if he gets hurt (knocks on wood)

Yeah, the league-wide love for Willis has gotten to the point where he would get in with a mediocre year.
Willis only.

7. Crabtree - Nope Not happening
8. Edwards - Maybe if he breaks out
9. Brooks - If surprise, but doubt it, too many OLBs a head
10. Staley - Nope
11. Goldsion - HELL NAW
12. Rogers - Too many better CBs
13. Aldon Smith - Maybe
14. Spencer - Nope
15. Sopoaga - Doubt it
16. Bowman - Too many ILBs ahead of him
17. McDonald - Doubt 2 DEs make it.
18. Goodwin - IDK on this
