Aaron Lynch is a 49er!

I wouldn't invest a lot of speculation with this guy. Lynch will make it or he will not make it. Big difference between the Lynch project and the Okoye project. One has the right attitude no skills, the other the wrong attitude and skills. Which is harder to come around? We'll see.

Lynch is an OLB(pas rush downs only) player .

Okoye is a Raw project and a DL. Behind Williams,Dial,Carrdaine,Doobs
I think Okoye gets cut this year.

Not to change the subject -- well, it's already changed -- but why the Niners didn't try out Okoye at the TE position mystifies me. Unlike US football, practically every rugby player has to have good hands and ball skills. The fact that he did that -- and threw discus -- means he's got good agility as well.

Because our TEs have to be excellent blockers.
Back to Lynch. It is all in this kids hands now. This is his shot. If he is a malcontent, and has problems with authority, it will probably rear its ugly head again. Let's hope he realizes the opportunity in front of him, because it seems like the talent is there.

So do rugby players. The whole damn game is just a big long grueling scrum punctuated by occasional downfield laterals/runs.

We need this Lynch guy to make an impact as a pass rush specialist. According to Ian Rapaport, Aldon Smith is Facing an 8 game suspension likely. Now I admit, I knew nothing about Aaron Lynch prior to the draft but after watching some highlights of him, it actually looks like a good pick considering 5th round. He has the skills but he needs the coaching which he will get. This guy Lynch has a chance.

I'm pulling so hard for this guy. *If* he learns the position as well as say a Aaron Lynch from a mental and knowledge standpoint. His athletic abilities are so off the charts that I can see him being a dominating defensive lineman for a long like like Wilfork, Michael Carter, and Lenard Marshall were for their respective teams.

As of right now, I'm really on pins and needles as to how much he's learned since he was signed up by Haarbalke. We have a ton of good defensive linemen on this team now. TJE - I thought - was a journeyman but man did he surprise me last year. He has pretty good hands for a DT. I haven't' seen an interception by a Nose Tackle/DT since Michael Carter in 1988. He has very good movement and I think he is stout at the point of a attack.

Carradine is the wildcard unknown. The coaching staff and the front office knows more than us since they work with him every day, but he's another wonderful player who's potential is through the roof if he has recovered 100%.

Ian Williams, is supposedly very disruptive, and I saw a bit of it in that first seattle game before he got injured and in pre-season. Nobody could run on us when Ian was in - during pre-season last year. I hope he's 100% and even better than last year.

I teach high school English. I have some students who behave appropriately and work hard in my classroom and then become ridiculously disruptive and lazy in others. Students with the strongest personalities or the biggest scars in their background tend to bond or defy the quickest. The Lynch pick shows one thing: Harbaugh is completely confident in his position coaches.

I think that block (ahem, I mean *cheap shot*) that the seadderall O Linemen threw at Ian is now illegal. If not, I'm sure somebody will correct me. But Seadderall is just a big sleazy organization. They pretty much copy our defensive systems, take our old coaches, and the only thing they add to the mixture is a boatload of PED's. The Bronco's are even more bitter than we are - a substantial minority on their game day superbowl thread accuses Seadderall of cheating with PED's and they (as well as I) do not view that Seadderall Superbowl Win as legitimate. We are waiting for the evidence to come out before accepting that win as legitimate.

P.Willy and Justin Smith will slap him silly if he doesn't mind his P's and Q's

Really though, I hope our strong locker room atmosphere and leadership will make a difference for this guy. Looks like he's had a real tough life. This is his ticket out of the slums, and I hope he succeeds in taking advantage of it.
