  2. 2018 Draft Thread I

    Well that sucks. Was wanting to see that to help gauge his quickness and nimbleness. I think Smith is just a really natural, instinctive LB. He plays hard, and smart. Still it would be nice to have a guy that's 20 pounds heavier and can cover TEs and RBs like a db.

    Yeah. I wanted Hankins too. At this point I think we're full up with d-line guys unelss we want to try to trade Armstead.

    Magnuson looke pretty bad playing OT, but I think he can be an OK G, maybe even C. With Kilgore and Fusco gone maybe he becomes our primary G/C backup. It's an added bonus that he can play OT in an emergency. Even if he's not a good tackly it is possible that we could have two OTs injured in the same game and someone will have to fill in. If he develops some he could be an improved version of the all-purpose Mr. Beadles.

    I totally agree with you. I wanted Ward before we got Sherman and I haven't changed my mind too much since then. We don't know if Sherman will come back from his injury, and we onlly saw flashes from Witherspoon aftter a slow start. So it's unclear what he will ultimately be. Beyond that Williams is OK, and then we have nothing. A team can use 3 or 4 good d-backs. I ssitll think Ward is potential pro bowler. So I'm good with that pick if the team decides to go that way. I sure wish I knew what the staff thinks about Garnett and how he has looked just working out in the facility.
  6. 2018 NFL Free Agents Thread

    Last year I mentioned several times in game day threads how when we had 3rd or 4th and 1 Shanny rolled with some kind of tricky play rather just a FB lead up the middle. I said that he always seemed to prefer to "out-think" the other side rather than just out-execute them. I wonder if what we paid of Juszczyk and McKinnon is a symptom of the same kind of thing. He wants weapons that he can use in some sort of creative way. Great! And he's good at it. But we probably did over-pay for both of those guys and I wonder if his desire to have guys that he can use to "out-think" the other guys is a flaw of sorts with him.

    We do have Garnett coming back. Presumably they see him every day and maybe think there's more there than most of us do. Or, maybe they're rolling the dice and hoping to get Nelson and willing to take someone else if they don't. Who knows. But a really good C should do wonders for our o-line - as long as they all stay healthy.

    Yeah. I read another article listing the worst values so far in FA and they had McKinnon as second worst. The scary thing is not only did they think we over-paid they had a whole list of his last and accomplishement and thought that he just wasn't all that good.

    Damn. Sorry to hear that. Ward would have been a good pick for them.

    We NEED for all four QBs to go in the top 8. I'm assuming Chubb and Barkley also go. Probably Nelson too, but my wildest dream is that two teams like, and need, Fitzpatrick and Ward, or Edmunds, more than a G.
  11. 2018 Draft Thread I

    I've seen each of 3 QBs rated as best by guys that are "experts" in those kinds of evaluations. No one knows who's going to be the best of them. In any case maybe they tried to move up to one or two and found the price too high. What they gave up to get what they believe will be a franchise QB is pretty reasonable.
  12. 2018 Draft Thread I

    This. When you can't differentiate to any degree of accuracy between guys at the same position then getting extra picks in exchange for taking which ever one is left is a good move. This is exactly the same situation that I criticized Baalke for when he moved up to take Garnett when it was not clear that Garnett was better than Martin or Whitehair. Besides there's still a chance that either the Browns or NY take a non-QB ... of course it seems likely that other teams wanted a QB will move up to those spots.
  13. 49ers sign OLB Attaochu

    I tried to look it up and couldn't find any details other than how much is guaranteed. I guess we'll find out soon enough. I obviously wasn't excited about this one, but I'm fine with it if the contract is like a lot of the others we've structtured lately. If you combine who's available in FA and who's coming out in the draft this could be one of the worst years in memeory to be trying to find a stud pass rusher. At this point I'll settle for competent. If he could get back to the six sacks he had in his second year that would be several better than anyone else currently on our roster. Sad but true

    Speed, speed, speed. Love it. And in Sherman's case, or any veteran, if they've already proved they can play great without elit speed then fine. But when I'm building and tkaing young guys I love putting a priority on speed.
  15. Richard Sherman Agrees to a 3 Year Deal

    I'd love Oliver in the 2nd if he fell to our pick. Not crazy about trading up unless I was certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's way better than anyone that would be left to at our scheduled pick. Or even at some other position in the second and take one in the third.
