  1. After reading this article, I am even more excited to have Buckner. I loved the acquisition, but after hearing Bosa talk about all the things Buckner did for that SF line, I just had to smile. He was their D-Line play caller, and the guy who gave they pregame hype speeches. What an addition to the team! Buckner will become one of the instant emotional leaders on this team. Reads very much like he is the Quentin Nelson of the Defensive Line with his play. Quick read, and well worth it! http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001112951/article/nick-bosa-says-49ers-d-has-to-step-up-witho
  2. In all the talk, it seems Hooker has gotten lost in the conversation, especially considering how well he played last year coming off his injury. This year he will be fully healthy, and I look for a great year. The folks at The Draft Network have a really good article with some amazing stats about Hooker and last year. I know Pro Football Focus gave him excellent marks for last year, but the stats the draft networks talks about shows the respect QB's are giving him, and what a shutdown safety he is. If he stays healthy, I see a big year. Read the article, its short, but loaded with a few shut d
  3. Chris Ballard is the guest writer this week filling in for Peter King, and pens a great read on Football Morning in America called "Scouting and the power of Sundays." He goes through how they scout, what they look for, and provides a lot of special stories about players, fans and how it all comes together on Sundays. A long article, but really a good read. If you want to get to know more about Ballard, and his approach to football and life, take the time and read it. We are very lucky to have him as our GM!

  4. I don't understand K.C. Giving up Dee Ford for a 2nd, and then getting Clark for a 1st and a 2nd plus the $$$. Many thought it was Ford's positional fit going forward, but I just don't understand the thought process.
  5. I think of the surprise possibilities, once could be Chris Lindstrom due to position flexibility, and he would make a great rotational piece, since you know their will be injuries. He would be a great fill in piece for anyone hurt at times next year. Good solid depth in OL is always preferred. My second surprise possibility is Chase Winovich. I prefer him over Gary, and would have no problem with him at 26. I think he is going to thrive, and would make a great locker room fit the way he plays. Can't wait to see how it unfolds because Ballard is so difficult to predict.
  6. I think the one thing everyone should examine in OBJ's signing, is he has a rather unique contract. He has an out clause in two years where he can walk away. You pay that kind of draft capital plus a player, pay the money for two years, and hope he does not walk away. Plus, with OBJ if he has a good two years, what are the chances he does not exercise that clause in his contract.
  7. I am pretty sure Johnson decided to go back to Texas. As far as Arciega-Whiteside, his route running tree is vastly underrated. Draft Network did a really good write up on him. He would be a great pick in the second, since the players I want, Harmon, Metcalf or Brown will be gone in the 1st, IMHO. Many think Butler is a boom or bust, but I think he will be a Boom. I would love him as much as JJ in the second. If you got Isabella in the 3rd, I would love the draft from a WR point of view. With Cain returning, and hopefully continuing his progress, we would not have to worry about WR f
  8. First off, let me state I have not seen him on tape, and have only seen a few Miss. St. games, so I try and read a lot of draft opinions to see what a player is all about. I had heard nothing but good things about him until I read some opinions from The Draft Network. Here was a writeup on him from one of their talent evaluators: "I’ve seen Abram mocked in the first round lately and let’s just say I am very perplexed. In today’s NFL where coverage ability, range, ball skills and versatility are ceted, Abram misses the mark. What is true about Abram is that he is super physical
  9. Theoretically if the Colts were to package their two second rounders, they could get up to the 7th position, if we look strictly at the points assigned to draft picks, but that is rarely the case, especially in the top ten. You may be able to package the 34th pick, our 4th and 5th to move up, but it just depends on what is there at seven. Now that is looking at it from a draft ammo, which we have a lot of. Two seconds and two fourths place us in a nice spot if we want to move up. I don't see that happening until middle first (doubtful), or somewhere in the second. In fact I would n
  10. Love everything I have heard and seen in camp about Cain. My only thing cautioning me to pump the breaks, Durant Carter. For those of you who are new, camp superstar two years in a row, snagged everything, but could not do it during game time.
  11. Kelly reported to camp and looked yoked as far as being in shape. If he can return to rookie form, then Andrew hopefully won't get that inside rush. Inside rush is very quick and hard to avoid. The blind side will be important too of course, but I want to know what Kelly looks like. We could have a great rushing team between the tackles, giving Andrew more time to scope the field.
  12. Speed and timing are very important for Andrew of course, and it will take time to get that back, and when I say time I think 3-4 games into the season. What I think will be more important, is Andrew willing to stay in the pocket like he used to, and not be afraid to take a hit. That is what set him apart. As much as he got hit, and all that has happened, I think it will take some time to get him back where he feels comfortable under fire. Luck makes a lot of plays because he gives his receivers time to get open. I hope though Reich's offense will get the ball out of his hands much
  13. Anthony Barr from Minny. Legit LB we could really use and I don't think Minn. will have the money to pay him since they have so many high $$ players, little cap space and need to pay Diggs. I think he has an actual chance to hit the market. Lewan I don't see making the market. He will get extended this summer or franchised next year. Pair him up with Leonard since it is truly an area of need. I think Ballard timed having the cap space perfectly since next year their is a much better crop, plus we should be much further along in development.
  14. Just remember, this is going to change a lot before the draft because this will be the first year I believe Ballard uses FA. We don't have a lot of players to resign, and with over 100M in cap space next year after carry over, and basically FA next off season will be starting year 3 of the rebuild, Ballard will be a little more aggressive. How aggressive, I don't know. I think the one area we should look at in FA is WR, LB, and CB. The one area to avoid in my opinion in FA is DT and DE. The 2019 draft is absolutely loaded with defensive line talent. When one team's whole defensive
