I really like how the draft has gone so far, but all this talk of Baalke "t-bagging" and "putting on a clinic" is going a little overboard.

Nonetheless, I think this is another 2007- and 2011-like draft as far as the impact these guys can make for the team.

Those two drafts were clinics.

Well... damn. I believe you have won that argument.


Beating out the Raiders first round pick DJ Hayden for a touchdown.

Phone Interview with Patton.

Here is the transcript from Patton's conference call with Bay Area media (courtesy of the 49ers):

Are you looking forward to coming out and seeing your new team?

"Yes, sir. I can't wait to be there."



Can you try to describe for us, people who are unfamiliar with you, who you are and what your strong suits are? How you play?

"Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech, fast, strong [inaudible], a blocker, able to block 60 yards downfield [inaudible]. Just an ultimate team player. Ultimate competitor out there on the field."



What kind of returns experience do you have, doing punt returns and kick returns?

"I have a little bit of experience with kickoff returns. I've done some in the past."



Do you feel comfortable in punt returns? The 49ers lost their punt returner in free agency and they might need somebody to come in and do that. Would that be something you feel you can come in and do?

"I'm open to whatever they need me to do. I'm trying to make an immediate impact on my team in the best way I can. It doesn't matter what it is, we'll just do it."



Did you have much contact with the 49ers before the draft?

"Yeah, I'd say I had limited amount of contact with everybody and everything. But, it's just the draft process and everything. So, I understood."



Didn't you have dinner with an assistant coach before your pro day?

"Yes, I did. We went to hibachi and it was great."



Was that John Morton, the 49ers wide receivers coach?

"Yes, sir."



How would you describe the offense you played in at Louisiana Tech?

"Some people would say it was a spread offense. Get the ball out quick and watch us go. Up tempo, no huddle. As many plays as possible as we can get."



What do you know about the 49ers and their wide receivers situation?

"I just know [WR] Michael Crabtree. I know about [WR] Anquan Boldin. And I don't know if [WR] Randy [Moss] is still there. And that's it. And I guess me now."



What do you think about the prospect of learning from somebody like Anquan Boldin?

"I'm probably put in the perfect position that I am right now, to learn somebody that's older, is wise and that knows how to play the position."



Do you feel like you need to get stronger at the NFL level? Is that one area of your game that you want to improve?

"Yes, sir. That's definitely an area I need to improve, in the weight room, ,so I can be out there for three downs and not just one."



Your last game was in San Jose, California. Do you like the South Bay already? Since you're familiar with the area?

"Yes, sir. [Inaudible]. But, I love it. So, I'm back out there."



You seem obviously pretty fired up. But, you were viewed as maybe a higher selection. Is there any disappointment about slipping to the fourth round?

"No disappointment, just happy to hear my name called."



Did you watch much of the 49ers last season? Or were you able to catch on to QB Colin Kaepernick bursting onto the scene?

"Yes, sir. I got to catch some of the games, the regional games down there in Louisiana and everything. But, yeah I caught some of the games. [Inaudible]."



What were your impressions of Kaepernick as a quarterback?

"He's a leader. He's a feisty leader. He does all the things just to get ahead, no matter what it is. He comes from the MAC [inaudible]."
Sounds like a good kid.

LOL yeah I'll be sad to see boobie go this year. I think he can't possibly make the team if lat is ready to go.
we are raping this draft.
WOW. So pleased to get this kid. Baalke just killed this draft.




The General playing for the 49ers.....my mind is still blown.

Ahhhhhhhhhh

Baalke got one over the Seahawks
I'm most excited about this pick out of the rest! They compare him to Reggie Wayne on his scouting report, but on film he reminded me a lot of Hakeem Nicks... Sure enough, I looked up Hakeem's draft profile and they are almost similar size with similar traits and workout numbers coincidence? I THINK NOT!!!!!!

Dixon makes the team this year.
Personally, the best comparison in my opinion would be to Victor Cruz. Just slightly less fast.
