Our offense will only get better with Cam at the helm.. as Cam progresses, the offense will progress.. If Pickles can make Gettis look good, Cam is going to make him look twice as good. I have full confidence in Gettis to come back and he our #2. Therefore, I do not consider WR an likely option in this draft.
We all know that when Otah is healthy, he is a monster. Fact of the matter, is he is as durable as glass.. and can not be depended on. It sounds like he never fully healed from his knee injury from last season, so I think the guy should be ready to go next season with 2 seasons of rehab. If coach Rivera and Hurney believe this to be the case, I do not expect us to draft OT Kalil either. Yes, Gross is getting up there, but I think the LT position can hold off for another year or two.
Our defense is the worst I have seen for this team in a long long time.. Rivera is a defensive guru.. he just needs a little bit of time to get the right pieces and guys need to buy in to this system. We have all seen what he did in Chicago, and in San Diego.
That being said, we need to go defense early and often in this draft.
If we can trade down to gather and extra 2nd rounder, and maybe a 1st or 2nd from next years draft, that would help tremendously. Our top needs can all be had later in the 1st round.
CB - Claiborne is being compared to Charles Woodson on many scouting sites.. and his stock is rising fast. He has no comparability to Peterson of last season besides both going to LSU. Munny is better at nickel and he should stay there. Ideally, I would trade down with the Skins, whom love Barkley.. draft Claiborne and then take the best Nose Tackle and OLB available with the first 10 picks of the 2nd round.
I guess CB really just depends on how the staff feels about Hogan and his recovery. They want wast there 1st pick on CB if they feel they have a starter in Hogan.
There is not a Patrick Willis or a Suh in this draft and that saddens me.
