O-line

22 posts in this topic

Is this not a major draft concern going into 2013? All I hear is DT mentioned when talking about our first round pick but our offensive line greatly concerns me.

i want Barret Jones from Bama. Kid has been all american at 3 different oline positions! Perfect fit for us with all the shuffling we always have to do on the oline.

I would love to go O-Line. We need to build around Cam.

Offensive line is definitely talked about as a first round pick. I'd rather go with OT in the first and plan for Gross' age.

I'm a person that would love to use the first two picks on both lines. Solidify the offensive and defensive line for the foreseeable future and then they can use the next few drafts to add more talent at perimeter positions for the next few years.

Oline should be our biggest priority this offseason. next up is DT and FS, followed by WR. The problem with drafting DTs early is that if they aren't a "sure thing" (aka, suh, mccoy, dareus) they have a high bust potential. Keenan Allen is worth a look but we may have just enough WR talent to squeak by on, look what other high profile QBs can do with a good Oline and average/sub par receivers. Campbell deserves a shot to compete at FS i believe too.

Depth is the biggest issue when it comes to DT. On passing downs bringing Hardy in the middle solves a lot of the deficiencies and both of the Edwards' are good enough to warrant playing time. The guys behind the Edwards' are what concern me, and I'm not quite sure Ron is worth what we pay him. Still we could address this in later rounds or with a solid vet FA (like Dwan).

Quality guards don't hit the market often because they are fairly cheap to lock up (unless you are cream of the crop like Nicks) and are absolutely integral to quarterbacks that like that clean pocket to step up into. I'm not going to go into draft specifics, but so far Rivera has drafted 2 guys in the first that I questioned being the right choice and I've never been glad to be so wrong, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt (assuming he's still here).

Somehow someway we have to get a legit RG this offseason. Additionally, if the right LT is available at our pick in the first, you have to give it serious consideration.

As to Campbell, he is a SS, not FS. I'm not sure he has the coverage skills to play the FS position.

First round pick to fix the online is fine

New GM will go out looking for talent as well

Oops! My bad. I forgot they moved godfrey over for campbell. Either way I think between what we have at safety we should be able to find some combination that isn't a total liability.

I agree on both LT and RG. Joeckel will be long gone by our pick, his stock has skyrocketed. Honestly if we are picking near the middle of the first I'd be ok with using our first on a guy like Warmack. Tackles get really pricy compared to guards so I'd rather have elite guards and good tackles.

    • 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.
