Matt Kalil & Janoris Jenkins in twenty twelve

19 posts in this topic

I'd prefer Justin Blackmon in the 1st and the best available defensive player in the 2nd. There's a chance Zach Brown drops into the early 2nd; if so, Blackmon + Brown would be outstanding.

it is funny to see someone say Kalil doesn't have high ceiling athleticism but he is known for blocking kicks.

also trading down is nice in theory but it's never as easy as it sounds... but if we do trade down we might be in range of a decent DT prospect.

Yea, that's one thing in that writeup I just can't agree with. He was a little stiff when he first got to USC, and lacked the ability to pull to the outside regularly. But ever since his freshman year, he's really dedicated himself to being an all around great offensive tackle. He's put in a ton of work to increase his athleticism and it shows this year....

I just don't see Blackmon having the impact that Kalil would on this team. I think he is by far the best of the three big name receivers (Blackmon, Jeffery, Floyd), but I also believe we have more than capable receivers in Steve Smith, David Gettis, Brandon LaFell and our tight ends. Also, it remains to be seen what Pilares has to offer as a WR, and the free agent receiver class is pretty damn strong this year....as it has been said many times on here, free agent wide outs will want to play in this offense with this QB...

Watching Gross yesterday plus fact he's 32 and Otah being an Injury bust makes me think we may need to draft a Franchise LT to pair with Cam and protect him anyway. Hopefully its Kalil, the Stanford LT in a trade down may work too.

i wouldn't have a problem with this, although i'd rather take an OLB in the 2nd.

Good picks if we are standing pat. I still have a feeling Jenkins goes in the first round.

Also, i know a trade down scenario is hard to predict and people really go crazy with them, but if Washington wanted to move up badly enough to draft Matt Barkley, we could still possibly move down and get a comparable offensive tackle prospect--Martin or Reiff.

Gross is fine. I agree we need to eventually work on replacing him, but we can draft that replacement next year or in 2-3 years and be fine. I also don't think Hurney would take an OT this early with Blackmon still on the board OR with Otah still on the roster. Hurney likely hasn't given up on Otah, and while I agree that he will likely go down as an injury bust, I think Hurney/Rivera are happy between him & Byron Bell - or at least happy enough to not take an OT in the top-5 with Smitty's replacement sitting there.

I guess where we disagree is that you feel replacing Gross is more vital than replacing Smith. I feel more comfortable with Gross for another 3-4 years than with Smith as our top WR for that same time period. And let me also say that if WR wasn't a big need we wouldn't be starting Legadu fuging Nannee right now. LaFell and Gettis have shown promise, but fact is neither is likely to become close to what Justin Blackmon will be, IMO.

Don't get me wrong, though, I'd love to have Kalil on the OL. He's definitely by 2nd choice, but I just don't feel that we're in a position to pass on a potentially elite WR prospect like Blackmon when we've got a pretty solid OL already, even if we could stand an upgrade there as well.

I'm just upset there's no can't-miss DT/OLB prospects projected in the top-5 :mad2:

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
