Agreed. eric reid is a talent. 5 star recruit coming out of highschool. Nothing he can't do.



But it wasn't wise for San Fran to take him in the first :rolleyes:

Small school guy, but huge and strong and a mauler... and has played both tackle and guard. Won't have to learn the OG position from scratch like Silotolu had to do so, hopefully, will make more of an immediate impact.

I like big, strong, ugly, violent linemen.



Sounds about like a poor mans version of Silotolu.

And Marty had that same approach. Every GM does. The prideful "I know something you don't because I'm me" mentality. In the end theres something to be said for the general consensus. There's a reason higher rates players are rated higher.


The difference is Gettleman is a football guy. Marty wasn't.

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

at first I was a little sore, guy I never heard of + Patton was still on the board.

The more I read about this guy the more I like him. A lot of GMs started liking this guys movement, power and reach. And in the 4th where you can go almost any which way this isn't a bad pick. I like it more and more.

Also Eric Reid can't cover to save his fuging life. He's literally Chris Harris, iffy cover guy and lives on being a "hard hitter." We have that in Godfrey.


Reid was destroyed in coverage last season yet the Huddle thinks he's a stud.

How does the success rate stack up against executives who out think themselves?



Considering we have no idea on Gettleman and his ability to find players because this is his first draft your conclusion may me premature.

I didn't know much of the of Kugbila, but I have read a few reports on him and everything sounds promising. If he is someone the scouts and coaches think can play and start it doesnt matter where you pick them. If they felt he would be there later then I am sure they would have waited.... It only takes 1 team to like you to set where you go (EJ Manuel)

Eric Reid is a nice player, great in run support but did struggle last yr in pass coverage. I really liked him and had him as my top saftey, but he needs to be paired with a very good FS to help with deep ball assignments. Jut because he was a 5star out of high school means nothing at this point
