Come on though being the superbowl runner ups we had a pretty sweet draft. Considering our GM made the board look like his b***h and got who he wanted.

In the press conferances coming up, every team got exactly who they wanted where they wanted. Just once, I'd like to see a GM come out and say, well, that sucked, see what happens I guess...... Dallas would make sense for this after that first rounder.

Yeah I know what you mean and lol @ Dallas. The only thing that made me confident we got who we wanted was that we traded up to grab players nobody else seemed to give attention to. From my point of view they probably had about 5 players at each draft spot they wanted and if they could they would sacrifice who they wanted later on to get their early first choices. If any of that makes sense... lol I know that was wordy as hell.
My initital take is a b-.

Like Reid. Could be a real contributor/

Carradine a gamble but could help for 12-24 months before health concerns resurface. If he muscles up 15 pounds.

Everything else is a head scratcher.

Don't understand trading up for Vance at all. We have 3 TE's on the roster already.

This was a luxury pick when we have a desperate need for DLine depth.

Where is Soap's 2-3 down replacement? We need beef to stand up to the season long pounding that turned the best defense in 2011 to a mediocre defense for the last 4 weeks of 2012.

We passed on Logan (309), Jenkins (346), JWIlliams (324), BWilliams (335)....wha....? We thinking a 290 pounder is going to be a 2-3 down player for 16 weeks in the NFL?

Who is going to spell Aldon/Brooks? If Justin is gimpy again who is going to spell him?

I see a major hole that wasn't filled in too well.

Who is going to spell Aldon and Brooks? Why do you think they drafted Corey Lemonier?

Who will spell Justin... they drafted TWO DEs in Tank and Dial. Not sure what more they can do there.

3 TEs.. yes but only 1 worth a damn. McDonald can be special and the Niners need 2 very good TEs in an offense where they use 2 most of the time.

I think the Niners hit a homerun in the first 4 rounds of this draft. I wish they had traded up with all of those late rd picks to get Jesse Williams but overall this was a very strong draft.

I agree about vance complete head scratcher imo but D-Line depth is not a concern. Did you forget about dorsey. We got plenty of D-Line guys right now after over drafting the position.

My sentiments exactly. I'll also add that Dorsey was brought in to take over for Soap. We've addressed all our needs and then some this off-season. This is a better, deeper roster than last years team. By far.

As long as one of the tighties can block it will be a nice fit. How often was our #2 TE called on to make a meaningful play intead of Davis? Hopefully we got a good special teams guy with better hands than Walker. If so we got an upgrade in my opinion.
A

I think we knocked this out of the park. Could look like our 2007, 2010 or 2011 draft when we get done, maybe even better. Plus we get a 3rd rounder from the titans next year which should be early to mid 3rd round. We addressed all our needs. Got great values, up until Dial everyone we took to not just me but some of the experts had 1-2 round grades. Wasn't really happy with 2012 draft, thought it was solid (also picked up a 3rd the following year) but this draft to me kicks the crap out of that one. We had more picks to start but honestly think we had one of the best drafts. Baalke worked the draft as good as Belicheck in his prime (I think he has fallen off some these past few yrs draft wise). He traded down when he felt the guy they wanted at a certain pick would be available at spot they ended up at. And he took those picks he got from trading down (in past years) and used them to move up 5-10 spots when he felt a guy they really wanted could be gone by there pick. 4 trades in the 1st 2 days. Half our picks he's playing with other team's picks... house money... working the draft, selecting a player, getting future picks.

-Acquired additional picks for 2014


Great job by the front office.
Do you know what picks we got for next year?
I give it an A+, I am that happy with it. In a very deep Safety class we got possibly the best one, got a few more guys to get after the passer on D, a versatile TE to replace Delanie and a possible steal of a WR in the 4th. Some might argue why trade up for a safety in such a deep class but I say F that noise, if you can grab the guy you think is going to be an all pro make it happen, especialy if you can fleece Dallas in the process!.

We got an additional 3rd from the trade down with Tennessee. We also have a conditional 3rd that could become a 2nd from the Alex Smith trade. Then you factor in likely compensatory picks from losing Goldson, RJF, Walker, Sopoaga. We should be in a position of strength once again in the 2014 draft.

Only one I think is Titans 3rd... so far we have

1, 2, 2/3 alex, 3 titans, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 colin jones, 7

That's if we have no comp picks, I expect a 3 for Goldson.
Don't forget we traded for Colt McCoy and Anquan Boldin from our stable of picks.

This draft has the potential to be a A++ for sure. A few of the players may also not reach their potential due to injuries or the inability to develop in which case this draft could possibly be a B or so (impossible to tell). But we drafted a whole lot of players and I'm guessing we are going to look back and say this was the draft that put us over the top for a long time to come.
I give us A- .. IMO wasted pick #131 could have took a OT earlier N a CB or another S earlier .. wasted QB pick .. didn't like tha TE we took think T.Kelce would have been GREAT for us...luv Reid pick can live with tank pick hopefully he can translate to a 3-4DE .. good value all around N we picked 11 players N got a pick for next yr...
Give it a B+ right now.

Got some guys that can contribute right away. Some guys will need to to heal and the value of pick can be determined then.

Yes tank and lattimore appear to be great picks, but it they don't heal (which they should/ will) then 49ers didn't do as well
