Film breakdown of Eric Reid

I remember how many people were so upset that the 49ers traded up for him. In terms of physical characteristics, he's the ideal safety in every way imaginable. Then you add in that he's obviously a very intelligent, bright guy and it just makes for an outstanding player, can't wait to see what he'll look like with another year or two of experience under his belt.

Sounds just like what we were saying about Kaepernick

Be awesome if he wore 36 tho, since hanks # aint getting retired!

I like number 35 because it matches with Navorro's 53

...and here's a much greater chance of Hanks's 36 getting retired than Dexter Carter's 35....heh

I wasnt upset we moved up to get him. Im always happy with aggressive moves to get the guy we want, i was however upset with the choice at the time. I wasnt high on him at all. Glad he has proved me 100% wrong thus far.

That's how I felt. The Reid pick was the antithesis of what we did in 2012. We identified who we wanted, we had an obvious need at the position, and we had draft capital to justify the move.

So far so good.

He let B.J. Daniels and Marcus Cooper go so that wipes out every good thing he's ever done his entire career. Even things he did before he became GM. He sucks.

When Rodgers wasnt picking on him in that first week. I really noticed. Rodgers would have known to look Reids way during that game and test the rookie out. But Rodgers hardly went that way. Thats a tick in a lot of boxes from the D to the coach and staff on the sidelines and up top.
i would like to apologize to Mr.Reid for ever doubting him. I love you.

This was one hell of a pick. Trading that far up for a safety had me nervous, but we hit the ball out of the park with this one. I can't believe we found an upgrade over Goldson who was 1st-team All-Pro.

And Reid is probably going to get better as he gains more experience.

Getting ahead of myself, I'd love to see us use some of our stockpile to trade up and get Reid a stud partner-in-crime. Not that I don't like Whitner, but I don't see him coming back next year (too expensive).
