NCommand, you had asked me to state my opinion in here now I'm glad I didn't get around to it because I would have looked like a jackass. Trading for Martin maybe could have guessed, but trading for Gabbert and signing Bethea... no way. Would have never expected this busy of a day. I was right on Wilhoite, right on Cox or Wright back, Dawson, Boldin... Kilgore didn't expect to be re-signed this early. As for needs for the draft wow right now minus a 3rd or 4th CB and a 3rd or 4th WR we really don't have any major needs. I expect us to do a lot of trading down in this draft; 1 of the 2nds or 3rds will likely be traded away fully and turned into a pick next year. Our early QB need went out the window, early SS as well, even OL with Martin might be gone now. Right now I'm looking at something like 1. Verrett/Fuller 2. Trade Up From 56 Matthews/Beckham and after that BPA or trade. Then depth of S, OL, QB if we want but not a necessity. If we wanted to now would be the time to trade half a draft for a guy like Watkins or Evans especially if we don't think we can re-sign Crabtree after this year although we could tag him.
Hahaha...yeah, nobody would have guessed Gabbert and Bethea right?
I think you are leaning where I am as well...this year will be more about quality over quantity
(Lord knows we're already stacked with a grocery-long list of players coming into the fold for 2014).
Trending on NinerTalk - Top 5 Needs: H/W/S = Ideal Height/Weight/Speed; Would need to forfeit picks for Justin Gilbert & Mike Evans.
#1 CB/Dynamic Returner (Justin Gilbert
@ #12 = H/W/S + Returner)
#2 S (Calvin Pryor or Hasean Clinton-Dix = H/W/S or Jimmie Ward from picks #27 - #33)
#3 WR/Dynamic Returner (2) (Size: X - Mike Evans
@ #16 or Donte Moncrief @ #66 = H/W/S or Y - Brandin Cooks @ #37 = Returner + S)
#4 ILB (?)
#5 C (Marcus Martin @ pick #71)
If MD's Big Board holds up, there are only two guys
we'd even need
to trade up for. All 3 S's are going to be in range staying put; same for the X or Y WR, ILB and C.
