It's cool that you respectfully disagree Karma. But what you should understand is that you are wrong in this instance! Parays Haralson was drafted to rush the QB from the OLB position on Nolan's team NOT Manny Lawson. Once again the assumption from observers outside of the organization and fans who listened to them thought that that was why he was drafted which is incorrect. Like Hearstfan stated Nolan/McCloughan drafted Manny Lawson to replace Julian Peterson who wanted to get paid like a QB for playing DE, LB, CB, & a lil S (Tony Parrish was hurt if I recall correctly) in a game (against seattle in 02/03 before he tore his ACL) and because of durability concerns they refused to pay him top dollar so he left as a UFA and went to, wait for it.......Seattle! Manny Lawson is multi-demisional player. He played on both ST units and has blocked punts and FG's and made many score saving tackles on those units and he played the run very well. Since he Nolan & staff weren't good at teaching technique and didn't preach/practice repetition it's hard to expect any one particular player to learn one thing well enough become what he envisioned them to be! Had the 49ers kept Manny Lawson the pass defense would be much better than it is and Shawntae Spencer wouldn't be wasting a roster spot!
