Yeah, Quanterus was a good pick too IMO. Great value. But I've never been as excited about a 3rd-round rookie as I am about Lemonier. I think the rest of the NFL completely blew it (twice) passing on this guy. I think he'll be better than Barkevious Mingo. And that's not homer talk; I was saying that all offseason.

lemonier is a gift because he's almost can't-miss. he has talent and passionate play--a great recipe.

To be fair, gore has mangled knees. No one EVER thought he would be this good in the NFL. He was more a pleasant surprise.

Lmao at Peter King calling the Gore pick the worst in the draft at the time.
Bowman didn't show much until the end of his rookie year ... I think he meant a 3rd round pick before the season starts.

So many people were "meh" about Lemonier and I had to keep saying it was a great pick. He got a lot of pressures even though he didn't get great sack numbers. He reminded me of Charles Haley in that Haley would get the QB to move and someone else got the sack a lot of the time. Lemonier is so quick around the edge that he's going to drive the QB toward his teammates. If only we had another player who was a pass rush threat to get the sack!

remember the wrist slashing that went on when we let go of spikes,, if i recall, that stuff went away after the first half of the first game bowman played
Good call cciowa!

I remember how people were in a "sky is falling" mode when we let Spikes hit the road. Then the Bowman Bandwagon rode into town.

Back to the post - this kid Lemonier can be real special with the type of coaching we have.
Having a fresh rotation of OLB's along with more depth on the D line is gonna pay dividends this year.

i have always said bowman is the henchman for willis so it is only right that lemonier is the henchman for aldon or brooks or whoever! sure the kid has only played two games but he has given more than f**king stupid huggins/higgins, whoever the f**k he was

I liked the Gore pick, but I didn't think he'd be as good as he is. Same with Bowman (actually I was mad because I wanted Jimmy Graham, who went 4 picks later; but I am more than happy that Bowman exceeded expectations).

Lemonier is the first 49ers' 3rd-round pick I've actually expected to eventually be a pro bowl caliber player since I've been following the draft. .

we desperately need ILB depth

Wilhoite has been playing pretty well. Takeo Spikes is out there, but he'd ensure the Niners miss the playoffs; so I doubt any good team takes on that curse.
