  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I dont see it with Quinnen Williams that he's going to be a top 5 defensive player in the League. Thats JJ Watt, Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Donald, Luke Kuechly, Khalil Mack, Calais Campbell, ... He's a solid prospect, but honestly I dont see what separates him from Ed Oliver or Dexter Lawrence.

    I guess I'm just trying to think outside the box and re-evaluate after these FA moves how things are different, because this is undoubtably a different team then what finished the season. I bring up DK because honestly there isn't another player I could think of that isnt an edge rusher that I've seen talked about at that same level as Bosa, QW and Allen, and I think @oldman9eris with me that Clelin Ferrell is in that group also. I need to look more into DK and these other WR's still before I plant my flag there but he's in the running for who i'd be happiest with along with Ferrell, Bosa, and Allen. Guess I'm on an island there but it wont be the last time.

    Thats fair, his 3 cone change of direction #'s were really disappointing but if Shanny see's a Julio level talent I can see him pushing for it. There's other guys to like as is every year but its not often DK's type talent comes around. This is very true, but I find it a little odd that we signed one of the best pass rushers in the NFL last year to a 5 year contract this offseason and there doesnt seem to be anyone budging from the idea that we need to pick a pass rusher at #2. Thats why I ask who are the other "blue chips" because that at this point is really the starting point for who to pick at #2.

    Who do you all consider the blue chippers in this draft? The reason I ask is, if DK Metcalf is the clear cut best WR prospect that many think he is. Why not at #2? Personally I'm still undecided because AJ looked every bit as good, but projecting forward DK resembles only Julio and some guy named Calvin.

    The context of what this franchise plans to do with Thomas after picking QW or Bosa is important in any decision to move ST but thats why I said "I'd prefer to keep him through his rookie deal but if there's no plan to use him in the rotation..." We also have Kentavius Street returning from injury this season who could make a crowded DL even more so if he returns healthy. We can essentially consider him rookie who plays the same position as Thomas.

    Sure he does, he's the same age as a current 5th year senior like Christian Wilkins of Clemson. Plenty of upside and development in him. I'd prefer to keep him through his rookie deal but if there's no plan to use him in the rotation I can see Carolina or someone offering a 4th.

    In the Dee Ford/Kwon presser, Shanny stated the idea is to have Solly on the outside in base downs and kick inside on pass situations. So that wouldn't change with Bosa, but Solly probably wont play more than 60% of the defensive snaps (as was the case last year).

    I'm more in line with @Gore Whore 21 in regards to Colbert. I said this in another thread, but Colbert wasn't able to have the same opportunity to rebound from his slow start as Akhello Witherspoon. Snap count wise he had 530 in 2017 vs 320 in 2018, so its hard to really say he had that bad of a season when he only played about 6 games. For reference Antoine Exum played about 600 snaps, Marcell Harris played 360, and Jimmie Ward 390 snaps. You can say that his 2018 was the worst you've ever seen, but his play at the end of 2017 was some of the best safety play I've seen on this team in a long time. Him being a 7th round pick really is irrelevant.

    You're probably right about the QB need, but the Bears fans would agree that trade hasn't hurt them and the Jets could survive just the same if they wanted to guarantee their preference between Bosa/Allen, just a thought not even sure I believe they'd do it. But as to how far back the 49ers would go, I'd say at worst 11 in a trade w/ Cincy. From there they would still have a shot at one of the top Edge guys, and probably DK, Greedy, Byron Murphy, CGJ. and Adderly

    I'd think the #2 pick would be shopped around and sold to the highest bidder. If the Jets want to lock in their chances at Bosa, I'd recommend they check out a recent 2017 draft day trade with Chicago.

    Perusing through the list of free agent scraps Austin Seferian-Jenkins would be a solid addition at this point. Also would Jamie Collins line up at SAM in our system? I feel like he's a clear upgrade over PitaT and the German guy

    I would be very very happy with Bosa...and I agree the last two trades posted wouldnt do it for me to pass on him. But in this draft with the edge talent available, an insane RG3/Ryan Leaf type trade would be an easy decision. What if Q.Williams goes #1 overall and Murray drives the amount of suitors even higher? probably unlikely but i've seen crazier things. Take a look at the 2016 draft with Joey Bosa (Nick's consensus comp though he has slightly worse measurables) if you had the option to take just Joey Bosa vs a Jalen Ramsey/Deforest Buckner plus a couple future 1's and top 100 picks I think most would take the latter every time. IMO Nick Bosa has been hyped since he was in HS as the future #1 pick but as these 3 years have gone by the gap between him his draft-classmates has decreased substantially.
  14. 49ers sign Jordan Matthews WR

    Ian Williams commented on this signing by saying "I can definitely see him blossoming into being that #1 receiver the 49ers desperately need." cmon man lol

    I was thinking about Irvin the other day. I forget did he play SAM in seattle? if so i'm all for bringing him in, assuming him in Saleh were on good terms back in the day.
