I'm still not sold on Baalke's draft ability (specifically after the last two drafts), but I have plenty of confidence any time the team extends a player. It's difficult to imagine Kilgore not being an upgrade of Goodwin.
Well you're gonna hate this years draft then (too). In case you didn't notice, we pretty much draft for depth because we don't really need any starters. Looks like Goodwin is gone with Kilgore being extended and we'll be looking for a safety if Whitner isn't resigned (assuming the FO wants to resign him).
....that's about it.
