Even if it is a development pick he probably beats Hangartner for the starting job anyway.

if we took tavon austin he prolly could have beat hangman for his starting job.

Some of the people complaining about this OG pick are probably some of the same people who would have picked NT Jesse Williams in the 1st or 2nd round because GOLLY GEE *RATINGS*!!!

Williams was just drafted in the 5th round.

This is the hope, yes. Plenty of football guys have been chumps, and I'll be the first to admit his pride bothers me. His "I've been in this league 30 years I think I know what a good player looks like" comment could be the signpost of what destroys us.

Well either way I don't think, even if Kugbila is a miss, it's going to destroy us. Until he has a record of misses I'll trust his opinion on what a good player looks like.

lol the slammed Vaccaro for that and then love Reid.

Vaccaro is a much better cover safety than Reid is.

Only reason he ever looked good was LSU's secondary was legit, look what hapened when his supporting cast was gone.

Precisely. I criticized Vaccaro alot but he at least could cover. Reid, on the other hand, lived off Claiborne and Peterson. It was evident this year. Reid struggled all year long.

What a douche, I hope that's you in your AVI.

Sounds about like a poor mans version of Silotolu.

Yes because Eric Reid was such a wise pick in the first round.

I agree with you here that that was a bit of a reach.

But, other than that, you gotta admit San Fran is kinda killin' it in this draft, no?

I'm speaking more to the fact that there's a thin line between confidence and arrogance. If Gettleman is content to constantly go against the grain he better actually be the world beater executive everybody wants him to be. Or he just looks like a cocky old fool.

Other than that awful reach, hells yeah.

Tank, McDonald, Lattimore and Patton. Good stuff.

Yea, 49ers are having a good draft except their first. I don't agree with not only taking Reid with their first pick, but trading up to do it. I know they have to get rid of some picks by trading up, but if I were them I woulda been trading up for Floyd or Cyprien or even Elam. Not Reid.

I think the point everyone is missing is this : is there any reason for gettleman to think this dude wouldn't be available later, like, WAY later

dumb as hell pick that could have been spent on someone that was actually 4th round talent

Unless you have seen every teams draft board there is no way you can say that. He could have been taken with The next pick.

Marty hurney played to win the draft. Gettleman's laying to win football games, and the draft is a tool to make that happen - you see a guy you need to make your football team better, you grab him.

it's a subtle difference in philosophy but an enormous one. I love the pick
