49ers Select Fred Warner, LB, BYU #70 Overall

Recommended Posts

Off ball LB. Will take over for Smith next year, and provide some depth year one. Seems like the must feel confident in Foster being on the team.

By far my favorite pick so far. I have no issues with this selection. He needs to clean up the tackling, but he's a bit of a ball hawk (weird to say for a linebacker), he seems to always be around the ball. Great instincts.

Any chance this year he plays the SAM spot?

Same here. I think this is a perfect selection and gives us two LBs who can play if Foster is suspended.

Great pick. In my eyes pretty much strictly a WILL but the guy can play.

Um, possibly but think Pita will be our starter at SAM. But sure he could compete for the spot this year.

Our backers are going to be so much better in coverage next season.

Agree with Forge. He's a solid 3rd round pick. Could be a one of the better players@WILL in the entire league in a few years. Very heady player.

Will be really curious on Pita's growth this year. I honestly hadn't even considered him as a starter yet.

I thought Skai Moore had a similar skill set and mocked him to us. Wanted a WILL LB over a MIKE. 

Team loves Smith, but he may be able to challenge him for the starting spot or start while Foster is suspended.

I don't see Pita starting. If anything, I see Atochou(m/s) starting@SAM in base, then moving to Leo in nickel.
