I'll come out and say it: this was a good draft.

This draft did not make the most sense out of what we COULD have done.

But think of what we accomplished:
  • We drafted the TWO BEST pure 3-4 DEs in the Draft this year. Jackson in particular seems to have a great ceiling, and Magee is the perfect lunchpail guy.
  • Anybody here who realistically thought we were set at CB with Flowers-Carr-Leggett(-Daniels?) is deluding themselves. We were going to need another piece there. Washington was not the BEST choice we could have made, but his pick is not senseless.
  • For a draft that was largely without sizzle, we did make it out of the draft with two potentially exciting skill-position players from the late rounds.
  • A kicker! BARTH VS. SUCCOP, an elite battle of eliteness.
  • Brown and O'Connell didn't make a lick of sense, no defenses there.
  • The positions, outside of QB, that take the longest to develop are DL, WR, and CB. It makes more sense to get those players first when you are building a team. This draft hit those positions first.

There are other reasons out there but we will hear them as the thread winds on.

Good first draft by Pioli.

I don't think we'll know for a while. Take the last two drafts, while people were relatively pleased with the results of those after draft day, we've only won 6 games in that timespan. I'm not going to say this was a good or bad draft at this time. We have to see if these guys become building blocks for this team to be a winner, and that's going to take time. I like that they seem to have roles in mind for these guys, but I am actually more curious as to how our existing players are going to shake out on this team, especially Dorsey and Hali...

Pretty much...

I don't even think Magee is better than Gilbert my thought is we had the choice and took the wrong one.

Yes, because the players drafted in the past two years changed the fact that the team was quarterbacked by Damon Huard, Brodie Coyle and Tyler Thigpen.

Gilbert's not exactly a risk-free prospect. Evidently they don't believe he'll pan out, that's usually the way it turns out with guys that can't do it on the field in college. Hopefully they're right and the corner will come into his own with time.

Um Jarron Gilbert led the nation in tackles for loss so what exactly wasn't he doing?

I agree with you more than I disagree. Too many people were looking for a draft that solved all needs and concerns. That was never going to happen, and magically, we didn't have Anthony Munoz waiting for us in the 1st and Jon Alt in the 3rd.

The thing I really like about Magee is this...watch his feet...dude never gives up.

"Inconsistent...Bit of a classic 'tweener...Needs to be more physical and aggressive...Doesn't use his hands well...Has some trouble shedding blocks...Needs to use better leverage...Not a great technician...Motor runs hot and cold...Immature ?...Did not always face elite competition."

But to tell you the truth I think I was thinking of Sidbury, I have no idea why I get those names mixed up.
