I don't know. Carradine has more value as a pass rusher from the inside and the same with Lemonier from the outside. When the fourth round came, Patton was there and had been graded a second round prospect so they had to take him and Lattimore may end up being absolute gold when the team needs to replace Frank Gore. Williams was gone by the time the Niners picked in the fifth and Dial has better size and evidently better potential work ethic - Dial is huge - 6'5", 320 lbs with very long arms so he's a lot bigger than Williams anyway. Dial might end up being a real steal.
Good evening Niner fans! Here's my draft grades video for you guys
I agree with your assessment the Niners from rounds 5-7 took players that most did not have highly rated but took guys that have legitimate shots at making the team. Moody is a special teams ace, B.J. Daniels will play Russell Wilson on the scout team. OT will get a shot to be a back up or develop on practice squad. Dial is the most intriguing player drafted between 5-7 he has a real shot to make this team.
