I think we are honestly looking at safety or wide receiver in the first round. Maybe defensive tackle, but I think it would take Star or Floyd slipping.

I know some people won't be happy about this but Kenny Vaccaro is exactly the kind of safety Rivera likes.

Ok, then they better find somebody that can play RG. Cause fug going into 2012 with Gross-Silatolu-Kalil-Hangartner-Bell. Our depth is G. Williams, Campbell, Ziemba, Byers, Austin, and Z. Williams (who hasn't been healthy in 2 years). You guys dismiss OL to quickly. A quality offensive line can fix a lot of issues.


Ziemba got sent packing.

You are 100% correct in OL being too low a priority on this board.

I have a feeling we're going to wait this out, maybe a decent vet gets cut after preseason.

SCP... They blitz the fug out of Cam last year because our WRs struggled to get open. We have no one to stretch the field... When we get a deep threat, blitzing will be less of an option for opposing teams.

If we had an o-line that could pick up a blitz or stunt then receivers could get open. Look at that Giants game again as an example. Our line got destroyed. Cam got hit in the pocket a ton last year, that's not a good thing.

Chicken or the egg I suppose. We are just gonna have to agree to disagree. Our line needs some attention.

The 49ers do agree with taking linemen in the 1st round and it is also working out fine for them.

We need more talent on our Oline and it doesn't matter where they come from, so long as we address it.

And who are we going to pick up now that Boothe is off the table? Who is left that we can afford? We have to do something in the draft if we can't in FA.

FWIW I am for drafting o-line. the reason i posted this link was to discuss the merit of this strategy in relation to Gettleman's thought process. Is there any reason to believe he would have a different philosophy than Accorsi?

in a similar vein, Hurney liked to traded away future draft picks because his mentor taught him to do that. old habits die hard.

Trade down... Get Austin around 22nd pick and pick up extra second rounder. Get safety and DT in 2nd round.


Duh this is so simple just do this so many people are clamoring for that 14th overall pick what are we waiting for

all these threads about how easy it is to find and develop OL are made pretty moot by the fact that our OL sucks. if it were that easy we'd have done it.

Yet again, the comments were made by Mel kipper who is apparently friends with accorsi and knows his draft philosophy in detail. Accorsi not only hand picked gettleman, but he also spent many years training him. There are many reasons to believe that gettleman would thus view the draft from a similar perspective.

Or, all those years he could have been thinking that Accorsi was doing it wrong.

@jjones9: No Rivera, Gettleman RT @_andrewcarter: At #UNC pro day. Three NFL GMs (Jets, Jags, Lions) here, along with two head coaches (Bengals, Jags)


Possibly downsizes interest in Cooper, Williams.

They had a number 1 overall QB and did spend some 1st round picks on lineman in the draft Anthony Davis and Mike Iuapati in 2010. Joe Staley in 2007.

In 07 they were 5-11. 08 they were 7-9, 09 8-8, 2010(the year they added 2 more 1st round lineman) they go backwards and fall to 6-6

So yes they do have a good o-line, but the thing that turned them around was Harbaugh not the o-line unless you wanna use the whole Rome was not built in a day argument, even then they were much better know for their Defense than their offense. Their starting RG was un-drafted btw.

Don't get it twisted shitty o-line play pisses me off as much as the next guy but your going to have to bring a better argument than that if you want to sway any opinions.

I agree with him. Ive always felt with O lineman and D lineman you draft in later rounds and develop them while you draft playmakers and difference makers like WRs, LBs and DBs in the first rounds. Look at Green Bay, terrible O line but amazing offense, why? Because Aaron Rodgers has more weapons than the Pentagon around him.
