  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    There's always some team willing to take a chance on a gritty, lunch pale kinda guy like Chase. Book it. I think @Forge hit on the biggest reason why he's dropping. He has the frame and athleticism of a pass-rushing monster, but plays like a strong side DE sometimes. I like him as a pass-rusher, from what I watched of all the edge prospects tape, Ferrell has the most developed game and repataoir, but he just does not have the burst and closing speed you see from the elite guys. I also think there's some familiarity fatigue with Ferrell, he's been so steady for so long that people just aren't intrigued by him anymore. He's a very good prospect, who outside of biting on playfakes way too much, seems fundamentally very sound. He's good against the run, holds position extremely well and consistently generates pressure. He just doesn't have the big flash pass-rushes that you consistently see from the other dudes.

    Makes the most sense. Would love to see him in another playoff run.

    Can sort by position Yeah, two seasons seems most realistic, but wouldn't surprise me to see him go 3 and consider 4.

    Feels like Ferrell is unjustly dropping into the late first, early second range and he might be someone to ****** up in that range. Feels like Sweat, Polite, Allen, Burns and Winovich are pushing to be taken ahead of him now.

    Well, it's only 5-6 if you don't think other teams are working on trading up too. This is where it sort of becomes prisoners dilemma-esque (or game theory??). The best possible route to ensuring you have your QB is trading up to #1 or #2 (assuming we end up at 2, Bosa goes #1), Jags(7), Bucs(8), Giants(9) could all very well end up in a bidding war with each other on QB's, Obviously depends on a couple factors too, but then you have the Bengals at 11 and Redskins at 14, Broncos and Dolphins at 17 and 18. All of these teams could trade up ahead of the Jags to pick a QB, which I would certainly expect them to try and do that. If I'm the Bills, assuming Jonah Williams and DK Metcalf are off the board, I'm moving back. Same for the Jets. So if I'm the Jags? I spend the extra capital move up to #2 and get the QB. The other aspect that throws this all out of whack is having both Haskins and Herbert declare. Then it becomes a lot harder to try and justify trading up (again, assuming the QB needy teams all have the same, top 10 grade, on both QB's. )

    I'm in the minority, but I wouldn't be all that surprised to see Staley play 3-4 more years if the team shows continued improvement. It's not wholly uncommon for good lineman to play 200+ games and Staley is at 171. Outside looking in, Staley seems to have the strongest connection to this staff more-so than any other previous coaching staff. He's also been rewarded financially, he's remained relatively injury free and his athleticism hasn't really seen much of a drop off. He may not be the consistently elite guy we're use too, but he's still probably a top 10 OT in the league. I just really really want our staff to focus on O-line depth after we address the pass rush. Come 3rd or 4th round, I would be very much ok with drafting another tackle.
  7. Marcell Harris though, he looked great today. Really helped contain their check down game which has been problematic for us all year.
  8. Around the NFL II - Even NFLier

    If we're going with a committee next year, he'd be the best guy "between the tackles" guy to have that wouldn't cost a dime. Mckinnon, Breida and Gore is a really solid, multi-faceted backfield.
  9. Harris looking good. That's really encouraging.
  10. We might actually have a good pass rush if we add one good edge rusher
  11. If they were smart, they’d draft Jonah Williams

    I agree, Tony/Khabib is the matchup I desperately I want. But I disagree on the first part. I think Khabib would beat Max, but it wouldn't be a Conor mauling. I think Max and Tony would be very close. Max would have a solid advantage in striking, assuming he could deal with the size difference than what he's typically use too. His ability to scramble out of takedowns and chain takedowns is also pretty advantageous against Tony. Granted, Tony is still dangerous in any cage scrum and if the fight actually got to the ground, I'd be very worried for Max. Ortega vs Tony isn't as interesting, I think they both sort of negate each other strengths. I'd still give advantage to Tony just based on size and I think Tony is a better wrestler and way more creative on his feet. But Ortega has really crisp stand-up in his own right. On the flipside, Ortega for Khabib would be a ton of fun to watch. Ortega seems to feast on high pressure, overly aggressive fighters who shoot in on him with reckless abandon. Khabib is on a level he's never faced before, but Ortega has arguably the best Jiu-Jitsu in the game and if the fight somehow managed to stay standing for pro-longed periods, I'd give Ortega the edge. Overall, I'd still probably lean Khabib, but I'd much rather watch this then see Max get wrestled for 5 rounds. Plus, I can't discount how clutch Ortega is at times. He hasn't always been amazing in his performances, but he has a jaw dropping moment in most fights. Tony vs Max is super fun and Ortega vs Khabib is super fun. not sure if flipping the matchups does much for me. Especially Khabib/Max. Just ew.

    I don't know if anyone listens to Locked on 49ers, but Jon Ledyard, one of the best draft pundits and scouts, was on two episodes last week after writing his article "How to fix the 49ers". He really goes into depth about Solomon Thomas and on some level, Foster. In short, he basically said Thomas was always going top 10, there was always risk with him due to the position switch, but outside of that, he was pretty much a dream prospect for his position. More or less implies that the 49ers process is fine and that you're just dealing with normal "misses" tha teams sometimes get.
  14. Should I be starting Pettis. Most important question for me. Landry, Davis, Lockett and Barber being my other main options,
