Speaking of Nate Montana, one thing we know for certain is he didn't come from the milk man. Dude looks so much like Joe it's scary. Too bad he doesn't play like him.

Football Jesus wouldn't allow that

Not that I don't think he might not turn out to be a good player, but I had an initial negative gut feeling about moving up for this pick. Just surmise it might have eliminated a better potential series of picks to follow. That said I agree that we should not read too much into his showing in this minicamp. I for one don't want to start justifying my initial gut feelings by allowing it to influence the objective evaluation of him as a player or any future perspective as to the level of development.

Nice objective post.

So, what you are saying is that a draft pick might not be good and that a draft pick after them might have been better?

Couldn't that same be said for every single draft pick bar the last
I remember when everyone was really pissed we moved up for Anthony Davis, supposedly we took him too early because he wasn't very good in pass protection and we didn't need to trade up for him. He didn't turn out too bad.
has he signed yet or is he still holding out for top 10 money ?
Eric Reid was a reach.

The 49ers opened up veteran minicamp with C.J. Spillman taking first-team reps on defense alongside Pro Bowl safety Donte Whitner.

Probably nothing, but this guy has got to be starting in week 1.

Yes the picks made impact all those that follow. Since they seemed so locked onto Reid it might have kept them from considering other possibilities. I was mostly trying to justify my gut feeling without it having to exclusively mean that Reid will not pan out. Well time will tell. Perhaps I just had indigestion. LOL>

And what if he doesnt start? Are we going to do the whole AJJ thing all over again with Reid? Polamalu didnt start his rookie year, neither did Goldson.

Spillman looked pretty legit last year on ST and in limited game time, I figured he would sit another year and replace Whitner next year. But if he steps up this year, it allows Reid a year to learn and then he can step in next year. (those two seem pretty interchangeable between SS and FS).

Theoretically, that actually is a pretty smart plan, because a few years learning as a backup is incredibly valuable for a player, even for talented players (see McDonald, Brooks, Delanie, etc).

and allot of people/niner fans said Anthony Davis was a reach too. (I rest my case)

The irony is that Dallas would've picked him, but valued an extra 3rd over a much needed starter at FS. Time will tell who won the draft.

The above article talks about the rookie standouts in the NTFL ( National Touch Football League ) so far. There were MANY of the S prospects that the zone wanted in the draft listed...


Johnathan Cyprien = The No. 33 overall pick in the draft was the team's organized team activities/minicamp MVP "in a landslide," according to The Florida Times-Union. This comes after Cyprien was "a man among boys" at rookie camp. We expect him to emerge as the Jaguars' premier defensive player as a rookie.

D.J. Swearinger = As Ed Reed waffles on his availability for Week 1, the No. 57 overall pick continues to impress the Texans coaching staff with confidence, instincts and ball skills. "He's very smart in picking things up with what we're doing," Kubiak said last week. "I think he's going to be a big contributor early."


Matt Elam= The last pick in the first round is impressing teammates as a quick study who always is around the ball. "He's tough, he's fast, he gets football," secondary coach Teryl Austin said, "and I think he is going to be a fine player for us soon." Elam already is playing in both base and nickel packages. "That's pretty impressive," veteran cornerback Corey Graham explained. "You don't see that much, especially in the first couple of months of being on the team."

Tyrann Mathieu = As expected, the man formerly known as Honey Badger was "buzzing around plays" as an immediate starter in nickel packages during OTAs. "He gets things the first time the coaches tell it to him," head coach Bruce Arians said. "He's got natural instincts to play football. I'm really happy for him. He's playing really well." Quarterback Carson Palmer has compared Mathieu's closing speed to that of long-time nemesis Troy Polamalu.



All this high praise, but not a word about Eric Reid?? We're screwed.



A) all those teams SUCK compared to the Niners
B) also don't have as much DB depth as Niners so of course their respective top drafted safeties will have more reps
C) those reps will also be against that safety's SUCKY (compared to the Niners, yes even the Ravens who will be a shell of their former selves this coming season) offense, so of course he'll look good
D) Niners practices are notorious for not being as open to the media, so who knows if that article's author has even seen Reid's practice which makes your entire argument moot
