LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

Frank Gore: 40 Time: 4.65

LaMichael James: 40 Time: 4.45
And if you watch the tapes of James he's does play faster on the field. His pads don't appear to slow him down unlike some "faster" players.

this means the end of Anthony Dixon!...... just like WR, we are now somewhat crowded at RB love the pick though
We got some homerun threats and alot of weapons now. True to the word of drafting BPA. Now time to fill needs like guard/safety/DL

the benefit of being loaded with talent.
Another surprising pick but I'm so damn excited to see this offense!!!

This pick also has me convinced that Alex Smith will be here for the full 3 years of his contract, we need to ensure Alex will have all the elite dump-off targets he can get to the best of his abilities.

The 49ers targeted RBjust 54 times last season, second-fewest in the NFL. Despite this, 49ers RBs dropped a league-high 9 passes

If anybody thinks he's gonna be running more than catching passes, they don't know James. -This guy will be Alex Smith's elite "back door exit" when s**t hits the fan due to us not being able to patch up RG properly.

sorry i wasnt clear thats the point im making harbaugh wants to see the RB more involved in the passing game hence this pick
i love this pick!!

I think the 49ers plan at RB is this:

Gore-starter/"work horse"
Hunter-change of pace-future starter (to split carries with James)
James-home run threat, James is also a nice receiver
Jacobs-power back

this spells doom to Dixon for sure and most likely Rock Cartwright.

I also think with the selection of Jenkins in round 1 and James in round 2. Ted Ginn Jr might be in trouble. Both Jenkins and James can return kicks and we now have 3 small WRs. Ginn may have 2 prove it at WR to make the roster, though I think he ultimately sticks.

Dixon is gone. Cartwright is a Special Teams guy, basically brought in to replace Costanzo.

Kyle Williams is gone. Ginn is a better and more experienced return guy than anyone we have.

I think we keep 6 backs, and all active on gamedays, Gore, Miller, James, Hunter, Jacobs and Cartwright.

i love the pick
Why are there so many differences on speed with this guy? The combine says 4.40. The front paqe of WZ says 4.58.... I've seen draft books say 4.37.


That's a lot of difference. Which is it? He looks fast on tape and in games no doubt.

All that matters to me. Throw the 40's out the window.

Really six? that's a lot of RBs! we only kept 4 last year, what position do we cut from then? doesn't look like it's possible at WR with Moss, Manningham, Crabs, Ginn, Jenkins.
I'm all about speed

Moss isnt' a lock for making the team. His contract is really just a tryout.
