  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    You can do both. I agree with you as I, too, hated the trade up for Pettis. But there are times when it makes sense. The trade up for Foster made a ton of sense at the time. Right now, the team would be foolish to trade up anywhere in the draft because it can't lose anymore draft picks. But if a trade back produces a few extra picks, that once again is on the table. For instance- let's say there's a scenario where Bosa goes #1, we trade back with the Raiders for a bunch of picks so they take Murray, and then the Jets prioritize the edge and take Allen. Now we're at 4 and almost assuredly go QW. So now, let's say the heart issue causes Sweat to slide a bit and he ends up available in the 20s. That's an easy trade up scenario. Give up a good pick to make it happen and still likely have some extra from the original trade. There could also be a simpler scenario where we end up with an edge guy first and a run on WRs leaves only one guy in a higher tier available. So you make the call to go get him. The only thing that baffled about the trades for guys like Beathard and Pettis was the fact that we almost certainly were trading up unnecessarily just to get a guy we wanted rather than to get a guy that necessitated the trade.

    Exactly. If it's the Raiders, we don't need a future 1st. They have current 1sts that work just as well.

    I prefer a Delmonico and please cook it very rare. The worst thing you can do to a steak is to stop it from mooing.

    Is it though? At FS or SS he's the 3rd string guy. If the 3rd string guy is starting (much like this past year at the position), things have gone awry.

    He played both spots out of necessity, not by choice. If the team gets down to the point where Antone Exum is starting, then everything has already gone haywire. But there's basically no need to keep a 6th year veteran around if the nicest thing you can say is "I don't want him to start, but he's played both safety spots at least." That's a guy you replace with someone who has a higher ceiling. I mean, there's always an Antone Exum available in emergency. For example, when the team needed a body at the position in 2017 in mid-November, they went out and signed Antone Exum.

    He did okay, but I would rather not see him on the team in 2019.

    Yeah, even Thomas's 5th year option isn't much of a bonus since he was the #3 pick in the draft and would cost significantly more than Armstead does this year should a team pick it up. Thomas's value is probably close to that of AJ Jenkins. Thomas is obviously not a bust of that level- but his value feels at best like a swap of disappointing former first rounders. I think our best bet is to keep him. He does better on the inside. Let him play there as the obvious 4th best rusher with Ford, Buckner, and Bosa/Allen. I think his stock rebounds nicely in that line. He'll essentially always be matched up one-on-one with a guard. This is why I still don't get QW for this team. Great player undoubtedly, but we can have a better line with a comparable prospect in Bosa or Allen AND possibly salvage the career of the former #3 overall pick. Seems like a no-brainer to me. I only understand QW if the team suddenly makes a move for Houston or Ansah.

    I feel the same way. I feel the team is content to try and run with Ward/Colbert. It's a mistake- because once Ward ends up on IR we're recruiting from the street again. Even a mid-round guy should be the bare minimum.

    I like hypotheticals so I'll happily play along. I think Julio still commands a 1st. He's built like a guy that will be productive through his mid-30s and just turned 30 in February. His career has been stellar overall, but this past season he put up 2nd best career totals in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. So - he clearly has to be considered as still in his prime. As for someone else to include in the trade, I'm not really sure what we have in abundance that they also lack. I think it would require a 1st. That's problematic, of course, because we won't trade #2 and we're already missing our 2nd next year. Not sure how wise it would be to have our first pick be in the 3rd round (presumably the 80+ range overall) in 2020. I think we would have to have an offer to trade back at #2 for high 2020 picks or trade #36 for a future 1st should a team be so inclined. Both of which I would support if Julio became a 49er.

    How dare you insinuate we have our punter of the future locked down! I vote for Jack Bailey. He'll show all of you!

    I don't care who the last DB is, this would be the absolute best draft I could imagine. Ferrell is a guy I would take top 10. To get him AND Williams would be highway robbery. And then Thornhill in the 3rd? Call off the draft right now. You nailed it. I'll accept these players and start the preseason.

    I have him as a 4th round pick and have no personal affinity for LSU. If it makes you feel better.

    This is an official warning. I need you to stop bringing up sociopolitical topics on this forum. Even as one-off comments.

    I agree. OBJ is a big personality and that can be a reason teams would stay away, but character isn't a problem. Similar to Sherman- Shanalynch will gladly take on big personalities with talent. They just didn't win on this one. #2 is too rich when the system can manufacture production at the WR spot and draft a younger, less expensive superstar at a much more valuable position at #2.

    Nope. Don't buy it. It took extra effort to write "at #4" on multiple occasions indicating he specifically meant specifically what was written. Had he wanted to say they wouldn't "at all" he would have left off the "at #4" or simply replaced "#4" with "all." What is happening here is simply you having a vendetta against Glazer for whatever reason without having the ability to prove your point. Now, having done this. I'm bowing out of this conversation because the five minutes I have spent on it is too much given that there is exactly zero chance of you giving it up. You are going to try again, but it's reached the end for me.
