#1 & #2 ILB - damn straight.

Pretty accurate, honestly.
better than espn or nfl.com IMO
Defense is f**king stacked
Iupati as the third best gaurd overall is impressive.

He's our best lineman by far. Beast!

agreed

i may disagree on some but thats the homer in me speaking overall cant really complain about the rankings
Two top-ten DEs, #1-#2 ILBs, and two great edge pass-rushers.

Miller is basically calling this the best front 7 in NFL history. Pretty cool that we have a top 10 secondary and great special teams to go along with it.

Bleacher Report has hired "real" writers in the last year to contribute to making their site more than just an awful fan-thing. They are trying to climb out of that hole since their site generates enough traffic to pay some talented contributors for some real work.


This ranking thing is evidence that they are giving it a good effort. Yes, a lot of the user generated content on BR is terrible, but they are bringing people on now that know sports and are respected, quality writers.

Vd is at least top 3 but other than that, very good. Vd would be the best te if he was on a better team with a better qb. See Bree's or brady

and a big problem was vernon was called in to block first 10 or so weeks because he didnt understand the offense
Thanks 49ersall, great read and much more valid than many lists. I enjoyed reading the breakdowns. Snyder at 32/32 was a bit of a surprise to me...thought he would be a bit higher.
I can't argue with these rankings.

Justin Smith is the top 3-4 End in the NFL IMO. McDonald is also a top 15 DE at least, and is only gonna get better.

Willis/Bowman is the best ILB tandem on any 3-4 team.

Delanie is a top 20 TE also IMO, and I don't want to see him let go after 2012. Thats why I wouldn't draft fleener. Rather have the proven in Delanie.

Vernon is a top 5 TE at least, I would put Vernon over Tony Gonzalez, I also think he is better than Aaron Hernandez and Jason Witten. But both are hell of TE's.

Iupati is a top 5 Guard, I remember 2010 when we were on the clock, I was hoping for Iupati. It was between Pouncey or Iupati, but Pouncey went before Iupati. Would of been happy with either.

Akers and Lee are top 2 at their positions, need to lock up Lee soon, as he is a UFA after 2012.

Can't beat #6 CB for Rogers, some good ones above him, Nnamdi, Revis, Woodson and Haden.

Interested to see where Gore, Aldon and Brooks are at.
