Thats one pick that would not make me upset at all. Sure maybe 10 is a little high for a RT, but we wouldnt have to worry about the tackle positions for the next 10 years. And what QB wouldnt have greater secuss with steller outside protection for years to come. Sometimes peace of mind is worth a slight reach.

Not because people thought he would be the better left tackle.. Also worth noting, Trent played right tackle until he became a senior. So again, a lot of question marks about this player.

Clearly it's the wrong place to be discussing this argument and rightfully so.. I'll leave it at that.
Okung definitely had the more polished college career. But Shanahan wasn't alone in his assessment that TW may in the long run have more upside. But in the end I think we're splitting hairs, I think both players have the potential to have long successful careers.

TW definitely had some question marks coming in, but he answered a lot them last year.

Most people seem to think the Cowboys will take Smith at 9 (or Prince, though a lot of people think he'll gone by the time the Niners pick)

I would love to have to choose between Prince, Quinn and JJ

Kind of surprised, AJ Green and Julio Jones haven't been on our radar yet. In my opinion, they could be the best available at 10. We definitely need an upgrade at WR, and I don't think we have a true #1 WR right now.

I think we will sign a FA WR or 2, bring back Moss also.. Team needs more right now especially on the DL/OLB/QB/CB/OL lol

You're definitely right about needs. I think we definitely try to bring back Moss. I think we need another WR that could be a #1/#2. In free agency, thinking we go after Sidney Rice, James Jones, Mike Sims-Walker at WR?

If we go with the draft the best player available approach, AJ & JJ might be it at 10. Seems like the FO goes by the best player available for our scheme approach. So, it will be interesting draft to say the least. Hopefully, we can trade down with someone who may trade up for an AJ or JJ if they're still available then.

Yeah but I, nor anyone else I would hope, would want us to turn into the Matt Millen Lions drafting top WR busts multiple years in a row. Do it the right way. Get the foundation in place first. OLine, DLine. Then get your skill positions. It's like trying to build a house right on the ground without the cinderblock foundation.

He would be a huge upgrade imo, I can't believe JAX let him go

I think there is an NFL rule limiting the number of players with hyphenated last names, and you know they aren't about to let Maurice Jones-Drew go...

I think if we can resign Santana, he would be a nice compliment to catch all the underneath and red zone balls, while Moss & Armstrong stretch the field.
