I'm fine with him taking the time he needs to recover, before that injury he was a Top 15 lock. He'll be a good player down the road for the 49ers. It would help if Dial were to become available sooner rather than later though.

How funny, ask and you shall receive...MM put up an article/video about them today. Sounds like both will end up red-shirted along with Lattimore this year. And like you guys pointed out, the silver lining is that we, right now, have the freedom to red shirt all these guys.

They believe the NFL is a developmental league. They are on record saying as much

In the short run, it frustrates me not to see Tank and Dial play this year, but in the long run, it certainly makes sense to keep other good players on our D-line that would have been cut and let Tank and Dial heal to 100%.

We have so much talent we might as well be recruiting like a college factory. Quality and quantity. Like that.

It's an absurd amount of talent when you think about it. Say Ian Williams continues his strong play and RayMac and Justin Smith stay at the same level, or even have a slight decline, they would still be better than almost any 3-4 front in the NFL. To have a player like Tank coming in next season, with a year in the system already? Wow. I do hope he can play some this year however.
Will they put tank on IR so he might be recalled during the year if needed? He is still rehabbing 24/7 right?

Maybe.

I think they don't want to rush him. Especially with the way haralason has returned.

Yeah. I think its a situation where he CAN run on the knee, but resting it allows it to heal 100%, and it allows us to keep another good DLman on the roster where he can't get plucked by another team.

I think he's somewhat in a situation like Lattimore (although lattimore's injury is far greater). He COULD play, but why risk it? We've banked on this guy having a long career with us, why risk that whole career now to add depth to a position that is already really deep.
I don't get it. Now a days rokkie contracts are 4 years, lets say this Tank misses and red shirts this year, what happens next year in 2014 if he has just a so so "rookie" year? What i'm saying is I think the 49ers shoulda waited til round 3 for this guy and if he was gone by then then so be it. This guy wont see the field this season. Another draft pick since 12' that wont contribute as a Rookie. Coulda had DE Margus Hunt who is bing called a "Star" so far in Camp.
Guarantee he'll play later on in the year, all this is just precaution. Dude was running 40's and cutting on that knee during pre draft workouts, our organization doesn't rush rookies unless they're ready to contribute and are 100% healthy. We're not some sorry ass team with no talent where were starving for talent.

Agreed, there is no way the coaching staff would let a healthy Tank sit on the bench during a playoff run. We would want all the pass rushers we could get and keep them all fresh throughout each game.

He wouldn't have been around in the 3rd. They can call Hunt whatever they want but you can't compare the two until the season starts. If you would like to legitimately compare the two look at their college tape. It's pretty clear we picked the right guy. This red shirt nonsense is overstated. They're look at him as a long term replacement so they're treating him as such. If he starts on IR he can be taken off by week 6. Wait till then to damn the organization.
