    At the end of the day it's one guys rankings. I think Simms has good points with Juedy and everyone places different values in what they look for at certain positions. The vast majority of the industry has him as at worst the second best receiver in the draft. Regardless if Simms is right or wrong I have a lot of respect for him because he's ranking guys with what he sees with his own eyes rather just group thinking with everyone else's rankings.

    Pettis was also in the PAC 12 vs the SEC or in Hamlers case the Big 10. I only watched a couple snippets of Hamler and I don't really have an opinion on him vs Juedy. Just repeating what I gleaned from the video.

    I mean its a matter of degrees, of course he has elusive ability after the catch he is a professional athlete but there is probably a dozen receivers in this draft you could say are better than him at that.

    Pretty much... Maybe he misspoke but the one thing that I really disagreed with him watching the ranking podcast was that he mentioned Aiyuk and Juedy were similar player types. I don't really see that at all.

    His bigger point and something I brought up a week ago is Juedy doesn't have explosive traits. It was also brought up that Juedy routinely went up against teams third corner because people were more worried about Devonta Smith and Jalen Waddle. And he doesn't have that much RAC capability. He also made a point of mentioning how Juedy would have been sixth on his list, so its not like he hates the guy he just values other things more.

    Much different players in my opinion, Deebo is a short area quickness guy whereas Aiyuk is more a long speed guy

    He also mentioned that if we happened to win the superbowl this year and Staley retires after that it would make this draft a good one to draft a tackle fwiw since this is an especially good one for it.

    Quote from Barrows last week that amused me... Grant R. asks via Twitter: Kittle’s contract: Lifetime at whatever he wants or whatever he wants for a lifetime? I feel like the 49ers could offer him $50,000, two tickets to “WWE RAW” and a lifetime supply of Panda Express and he’d sign within 30 minutes. Luckily, he’s got an agent.

    I actually don't mind it too much but I'd rather a little bit of a trade down to get an extra 3rd or something but if Cushenberry or Ruiz was available at the 2nd rounder? Highly unlikely, I know, but I wouldn't be upset at all.

    Antonio Brown was actually who I had in my head watching him (motion/movement wise). But you're right, both are/were top 10 receivers. I guess when I started watching him maybe I was expecting Julio/Amari and I was let down from that.

    Like I said I readily admit I very well could be wrong. I'm just see what I see. Hell, I thought that Robert Meachem was going to be a very good NFL receiver.

    Eh, I'm still not sold on Jeudy. That first gif was against Duke which is like an nfl team playing against a college team. The second one against Clemson the corner was looking towards the QB not focused on Jeudy which is why he was so far open, not Jeudys fault or problem but not like it was special either. The one against the USCjr corner was a great play though. He's a good player don't get me wrong. I just don't see a top 15 pick. Theres a million people who I know will disagree. There was a radio interview I listened to with Greg Cosell were he thinks Jeudy is far and away the best receiver in the draft even counting Lamb. To me a top 15 receiver should do stuff that you know not everyone else can do. Whats Jeudy's elite trait? Route running (which i know Shanny loves) so he has good short area quickness otherwise... hands? average to good, physicality? average, long speed? good, not elite. I don't see his ceiling as being a top 5 top 10 receiver in the nfl which taking a guy that high you would think he would be. I don't see the Amari Cooper comparison at all, Cooper is much more physical most likely thats just because both came from bama. The Chad Johnson/Adam Theilan comps I can see.
  13. I think you guys are being a little too much down on Shenault but to each his own, I still love him as a prospect just not his injury history. Deebo I could see him being above him in general on the depth chart but no one else unless you count Kittle.
  14. If we do end up with Juedy I'll cheer him on like any other niner and you could be right he may be the best of the class. The less physical game nowadays helps him out. Shenault I agree, I am wary with. Love his ability but he his injury history scares me more than it did a month or two ago both with how much he has been injured and how snakebitten we are as a team.
  15. The bolded part is why I think we don't pass up Wills, Wirf or Thomas if they make it to us. Becton is too big for us to really consider I think. Those guys are all elite talents and you don't know what nexts years class is going to bring. Plus who knows, maybe we move on at QB next year. I doubt it but its possible. Imo, you trade down at 31 and take whoever is left of Jefferson, Aiyuk, Shenault, Reagor, Higgins or DPJ in the 2nd. All fantastic talents. I'm kinda crushing on Aiyuk at the moment, I'm thinking he could be very special. edit: and honestly I'm not that big on Juedy especially. He's just too skinny, I don't trust him to stay healthy.
