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.
OK. Does Lemonier have the athleticism to play off the line? Why not get Moore? Higher rated and actually can play off the line.
Dorsey simply cannot be counted on for a full season in the middle. No way. So I was hoping they would platoon that position with a real heifer. But not really a thought about that. Why not Williams? He lasted til the 5th? We could have nabbed him.
I am not sure of the QB rationale in the 7th. I don't know anything about Dion.
I guess that with a real, proven problem of depth regarding the front seven -- what we have all been posting about for 3 months now -- , they would have expended higher rated picks to solve that problem.
Don't get me wrong. I like the Reid pick. But I thought that after Reid, they would have addressed the need for size.
We need bigger not just edge faster up front.
Not even thinking about TE. That's completely out of left field. Would we have won the super bowl with a better delanie walker? Wha...? Makes no sense right?
I would also go for a real cow rather than Lattimore. Great story and everything but realistically he won't help til 2014 if everything goes right. We could have waited for a later round to try that.
Not sure I see why a mystery QB pick either. I think we go for mystery CB picks. The focus is on D for this draft I was hoping.
