New 49er Corey Lemonier

pickin lemonier rather than a DT makes the case stronger that we will be running more of a 4-3 defense

i think we will be seeing this set up alot

Patrick Willis.....Navarro Bowman....Ahmad Brooks(Haralson)

Aldon Smith...Justin Smith...Ray Mcdonald(Glenn Dorsey)...Tank Carradine(Lemonier)

That is one stacked scary front seven. Even if we suffer injuries we will still be ok. Hopefully we sign woodson tho because the only thing that worries me is our safeties

he didn't admit anything, those dudes got hurt...

adding competition to a 7th round pick and an injured player isn't giving up bro

They're gonna keep Parys Haralson and Corey Lemonier. No way they keep Fleming or Johnson

not necessarily, but he can def help give depth and play on 3rd down nickle situations giving RayMac/Justin rest

haralson aint going anywhere...he is underrated
we finally have depth to give crucial rest to Justin Smith, RayMac, Aldon, and Brooks.

yea true. Im hoping we can snag jesse williams, him and WR like patton or stills would make this draft one of the best
When life gives you Lemons, make Lemon-ier... trademark.

I love this pick. I thought he would be in play for us at the end of the second round and I was very surprised he made it all the way to the 88th selection. I think this has no bearing on Pary Haralson. I think that Lemonier will be purely a situational rusher from the nickel, and I think that's perfectly fine. I think Fleming will be groomed to be a more all around OLB to back up both Aldon and Ahmad in the 3-4 once Parys leaves. I think Fleming will prove to be a better player in space, but I think Lemonier will be a better rush end from a 4 man front. A pure rush specialist and emergency OLB. I think this signals the end of active roster duty for Cam Johnson. He'll probably be cut or placed back on PS. My guess at least.

Just FYI, NFL Network guys said they asked him how to say his name, and it's pronounced like: Lemon-Wah

cooo

Maiocco tweeted that is pronounced Lemon-EeeAyy, but the guys on NFL network said they asked him of it was Lemonieer, or Lemon-EeeAyy, but he said it was Lemon-Wah.

Cam does have another year of practice squad eligibility. If they like what they see in camp, they can put him there again, then bring him up to the active roster in 2014 when Parys is gone. We'd have the best group of LBs in the league from top to bottom with our starting 4 and then rounding it out with Fleming, Johnson, Lemonier, and an ILB.

This is an excellent pick. I like the pick a lot.
Clearly, Baalke is doing what many expected him to do and that is to address the front 7 fatigue that destroyed the defense down the stretch. Perhaps in a move to send a message to Seattle as well that the 49ers are and will continue to be the most physical team in the division. Still need to add another wide out and DB's though.

Strategically, these additions (hopefully) will mean the 49ers won't be beholden to Justin Smith's and Aldon Smith's upcoming contract demands either.

From CNNSI:
Corey Lemonier is certainly not without his faults as a prospect, but he has outstanding potential as an edge rusher and the natural instincts to help him transition to a new position at the NFL level. His combination of speed, agility and explosiveness makes him a constant edge threat, and he possesses the quickness needed to employ a wide array of moves in space. While he constantly pressured the QB in games I graded, he did not finish as often as he is clearly capable of in large part to his bad habit of getting upright and a bit rigid. However, he displays enough fluidity at the LOS and dropping into coverage to lead me to believe this is a very coachable issue. He must also improve his hand usage, as he does not do a good job of fighting off blockers at the LOS and can be particularly exposed on inside runs. While his flaws may be enough to scare some teams into waiting for him to fall to day two, I expect others to fall in love with his explosiveness off the ball as well as his read and react skills. He would be an outstanding fit in Pittsburgh or San Francisco, with teams that run 34 fronts and will be patient with his development.Read More: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl/draft-2013/tracker/#ixzz2RdDSCQht
