Gettlemen Combine interview

135 posts in this topic

Info gathered from twitter since NFLN thought SF and the rookie QB class was more important.

Points he made-

Met with Gross twice already, will meet again after Combine

Big men win games

Pointed to specific needs at OL and secondary

Reiterates we will take BPA, doesn't believe in drafting for need

Steve Smith is part of the evaluation process

Hardy is a piece of the puzzle, they're still cap challenged.

I'll add more as I remember and will include links and such.

Gettleman: I promise we are going to take best available in the draft.

Gettleman: Need to improve secondary and offensively -- mentioned OL depth.

Gettleman: "It's a big man's game. ... Big men win."

Gettleman's aim for roster is a mix of "wily veterans" and young players, and of course a quarterback. He reiterates Newton is the answer.

Gettleman: "We have to be thoughtful with what we do with every player, with every dollar."

Gettleman says Greg Hardy is "part of the puzzle" but reminds that team is cap-challenged. He'll soon find out if 2014 cap will be larger.

Joe Person [email protected] 13m

Gettleman has had 2 lengthy conversations with Jordan Gross, who is in Idaho with his family and still mulling his future.

When asked about WRs, Gettleman immediately said any other WR is under contract. Didn't say anything about draft

His hands are pretty well tied with the RB's. I'm very excited to see where we are when he finally gets a handle in the cap and can really implement his plan.

I think Gettleman has done an outstanding job with the cap restraints we were faced with. Our RB current commitment obviously puts us in a bind and ties our hand on what we can do. Although the bright side to that is, D Will and J Stew are very good backs when used correctly. Of course, with J Stew, it's not just using him correctly, it's being able to use him at all. I'm on edge, every day, several times a day, surfing, looking for Carolina Panther info. Who stays, who goes, who comes in, etc...I have confidence in Gettlemen though.

We're really screwed if Gross retires. That puts us needing two starters at OT (and some depth would be nice too). We'd almost be forced to go OT in round 1 no matter what.

 

I really think he comes back though, he's coming off maybe his best season as a pro.

Kind of worries me how little attention WRs are getting from him, but it may just be the questions being asked.  Or...smokescreen.
