he will replace Justin not RayMac

I think he will be good enough to play both sides and spell RayMac also. IMO
Check out the first time we play a 4 man front, Tank with his hand in the dirt and Aldon wandering around as the Elephant man behind LOS. All 5 guys go at once and
"Puff"...the Qb disappears. Just kidding, I know he is there to spell justin or others, but this is just an outstanding pick as long as his knee is okay.

Agreed, but in the long run, my money is on Quinton Dial replacing RayMac. He's much more of a prototypical 5-technique which is the role Ray plays.

Ray could go for another 7ish years possibly.
McDonald is underrated, but Fangio knows how good he is. McDonald and Brooks doesn't get the star recognition because they play on the strong side which usually is to first contain the run, pass rushing is secondary. Fangio appreciate Ray Ray a lot more than some of the fans here. Qb pressure doesn't necessary has to be sacks to the coaches, as long as he/they collapsed the pocket quickly that counts as pressure too.
I don't think anybody's job is in jeopardy, I think this was a much needed addition to help give the starters, esp Justin, a blow. It would be kind of amusing if we had Justin, mac, aldon, dorsey, and tank all passrush on one play. But assuming knee heals well, he is a spectacular change of pace with Justin on the sidelines. The other thing trent may have had in mind, is with good subs/backups/starters sitting on the sideline, we may get one more extra season out of Justin than he had planned. NObody can take the abuse that guy has and keep playing much longer. If he took half the snaps, that could extend his career a yr or two...esp if tank , dorsey et al play as if there is no dropoff with justin on sideline. We got a later DL pick also who i am anxious to see...not Lemonier but a later guy...a DL.

The more the merrier, and if we can keep justin from getting tired, oh my, what a front 7 that is going to be.
Tank is the heir apparent to Justin, he isn't signed for 2014 and beyond. Hopefully they re-sign him so we dont thrust Tank into starting right away next year, sign him for 2 more years after 2013, let Justin mentor the kid, have Tank be a sponge, take notes, become a monster that all hope he is/can/will be.

Brooks gets too much flak. He also play End, he played 92% of the defensive snaps last year, he, Justin, Aldon and Ray Mac played 90%+ snaps last year, can't have that. We need help. Brooks isn't a top notch OLB, but if he gets his sacks up, he is well worth the mone, if he isn't already.

Anyone thinking Brooks is goner, is wrong. Lemonier will be a great spell for Brooks if need be in the future.

Ray mac is a beast, underrated.

2 years would be ideal IMO. Unless that 3rd year we know for sure we are winning a Superbowl.

I have a feeling a lot of guys will hold on until we get atleast 1: Gore, Justin, Jennings, Goodwin, Nnamdi maybe even Rogers

God I hope not, I really hope Eric Reid is the best pick of the draft.

We certainly need him to be, or we're gonna have a gaping hole back there.

As a rotational guy, maybe, but not as a starter. Highly unlikely to last that long.
Is it safe to assume Tank's knee is much further along than Lattimore's and that he'll be ready for the season? His pro day workout was much more intense and his injury was less severe, but I keep seeing people talk about "redshirting" both of them. On draft day, I was under the impression Tank was almost ready to go.
I think we will use tank like we used Aldon his rookie year.
