Reid essentially is Goldson redux with more potential. I don't see how you can hate on the pick. He's a quality player, lots of experience playing for one of the top defenses in college football. He's a gamer, an aggressive safety, hard hitter and is better in coverage than he's given credit for.

Yeah, but Goldson was a third rounder. Swearinger / Phillip Thomas > Reid and we would not have needed to trade away any picks.

Goldson was a 5th rounder from UW.
Welcome to the 49ers, Eric Reid.
Reid is about to smash Austin and Harvin



better potential than goldson imo
It only cost us a 3rd to get the guy they wanted, considering what the falcons gave up just now, we stole someone's lunch money.

Um.....don't you have that backwards Idaho. Reid at SS, Thomas at FS....


Although with this pick, here is what I would like to see happen with the next 3 picks.


2nd Round A-Datone Jones/Johnthan Banks/Robert Alford/DeAndre Hopkins

2nd Round B-Quinton Patton/Da'Rick Rogers/Travis Kelce/Brandon Williams/John Jenkins

3rd Round-Duke Williams/Terry Hawthorne

Yes phoenix. sorry brainfart. i meant Thomas at FS. Reid at SS.

Baalke is a bully
I like it. In Baalke we trust!
I like Reid, but I don't like trading up for him.

Carradine? Jones? Eifert? Patterson? all these guys on the board plus many other great players and we go with a safety? I don't like it.

Let's see what we do with 34...

I think we will be starting Trenton Robinson at FS, Reid at SS, and cut Whitner to have cap space to sign our picks.

By this logic you would never draft a QB prior to the 6th round because Tom Brady was a 6th round pick. Who cares where Goldson was drafted, he didn't start immediately. We need someone to contribute immediately.
Im going to move my grade from C to B. Mainly because we only gave up a third rounder to jump 13 spots.
