Played a much better game last night than last week IMO, trending upwards.

Im looking at this team and it's almost impossible to not take this approach.

Other needs for the team:

1. A corner- 2nd round. Someone that can challenge for a starting job immediately. If Lenoir is now no. 3, we'd have a shot at no. 1 secondary. Especially playing behind this front 7.

2. A man coverage beating wide receiver- need a great route running deep threat. This isn't high priority because we have Aiyuk. Just need another guy.

3. A tight end that can block like a mad man and offer some pass catching. Someone to take the load off Kittle. If we want him to last through a 3rd contract, time to turn him into more of a Brent Jones/Travis Kelce type of tight end.

We have FIVE picks on the first two days. Of the non O-line needs, only corner is up there for me. We probably need to take a receiver in that top 5 to do what I'm asking, but other than that, yes ..3 of those picks need to be O-line assuming no trade ups.

Another young CB would be great, but I first want to see Luter out there.

I like the future at WR with Deebo, Aiyuk, & Bell in 2025, but we do need to draft another WR in either 2024 or 2025 when McCloud and/or Jennings may be gone.

Agreed, need a really good TE that can block, and catch, I'm hoping Latu or Willis turns into that, no one thought Kittle would be who he is now.

12 picks right now is what we have for 2024, Future LT is a huge need, depending in where we are, we need to get one to prepare for life without Trent Williams.

  1. Regardless of how Luter looks, I want another guy. Secondary overall is stronger and although I think we will extend him, isn't Ward's deal up after 2024? Plus our secondary got weak pretty quick when Womack went down. Ideally I want 4 guys that can start outside and 2 in the slot. There can be overlap.
  2. I think the less Kittle bangs against those D-line or linebackers blocking the better. We have little choice this year, but hopefully year 7 is the final year of Kittle playing the Mike Ditka role in our offense.

Oh I want another young CB go with Ward, Lenoir, Oliver, Womack, & Luter, I don't think Ambry will live up to the 3rd rd pick status, I like having 4 outside and 2 inside CBs like you said.

Idk how long Kittle can keep up the physicality, same with Deebo & CMC, but it sure is fun to watch.

I think they can do it if its a priority. 2024 is the year I don't see many draft picks making the team, so I can see trade ups or even trade ups to 2025. It may seem excessive, but I think the 4 picks on OL makes sense. A pick at CB, a pick at safety, a monster blocking TE with some pass catching ability, WR with some speed, and one DL should do it. And this is between FA signings, draft picks, and UDFAs. Great spot to be in if the team holds. I hope the right side continues to improve, then the urgency for the three OL to play isn't as serious.

He's inconsistent so far. You see him block prefect then the next play he gets roasted.

He's only in his 2nd year, give him time, he didn't even get all the snaps last year, Banks didn't look like he does now when he began, takes time.

Agree, he's still developing, only 23 years old, and his second year playing right guard. He looked good in the Giants game. yes, he had some mistakes but overall 🏹 up!

brock can't get hurt. Personally I think we take 8-10m from our cap gap and spend it on a B/B+ guard. Too many sacks, pressures hits, that's even with shanny calling quick hitters. The only thing that takes us off the victory train is Purdy getting hurt.

$8M-$10M for a Guard is outrageous, besides who out there is available?

No idea. Can we get that bucs guy out of retirement? Marpet? Sure there's someone.
Is this experiment over yet? Weakest link on the whole team.
wonder where the let's move him to RT crowd went

Well, he might get Brock killed repeatedly but our run offense might improve.

According to PFF, the improvement would be only marginal, and at the expense of PP.

I think there's a huge difference between run blocking from the interior vs at tackle..

I'm not saying he'd be better at tackle, but I still don't think it's a crazy idea for the OL as a whole.
He looks really soft like he needs a complete body make over in the weight room
Guy needs to step up his game right now, playing worse than McKivitz at RT right now
I wouldn't be surprised to see Feliciano in there soon.

How did he do during our first five games?

this is a young developing player that has been thrust into action since his rookie season. Is he really that bad?

Oline guys are tough to find, we don't value them. So…

He's replacing Banks while out. I'd like to see him replace Burford.

Agreed. The guy is a liability. Cringe worthy play.

IIRC, he was an OT at UTSA. I'm not sure why they moved him inside.

I don't see him moving back out to OT as long as McKivitz stays healthy. He will just have to continue learning where he is.

B/c they only like tackles that are tall with huge wingspans. They have a specific type at tackle and they stick to it. McKivitz, MM, Compton, TW, and Moore are all 6'5 and up with super long wingspans. Burford doesn't fit. He was drafted to be a guard. Not sure why he's regressed so much from last year
