Niners Top Pick


I know this past draft the 49ers traded the 2008 1st rd pick (to NE?) for their second, first round pick Joe Staley.

Now as bad as the 49ers are this [sign in to see URL]'re looking to get another top 10 pick.

Does anyone know if a retrieval clause [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] the pick falls between #1 & #[sign in to see URL] they get to keep their 2008 first round pick? Or do they lose it regardless of where they finish this season?

If it is the [sign in to see URL] would be terrible!

Its the Patriots pick. Those clauses do not exist in the NFL. They do in the NBA.

They can if it's part of the trade, I'm sure Nolan didn't think they would be this bad, but still I would rather have Joe Staley who is shaping up to be a very good OT with a year of experience going into the 08 season then a rookie in 08.

A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. It looks like Staley will be a good possibly great OT. He is quick, athletic and has great feet. He will have a year of experience under his belt and is locked into a decent contract. He is expected to be the long term solution at LT.

If the team can pull it together and end up around pick #15 it won't get as much play in the media. The current complaint is the possibility that NE wins the SB and then picks #1 overall

Not to mention that we wont have to pay the huge signing bonus of a top 10 pick. We should be better just by adding nothing next season, I think this season was bad more to do with Hostler having to learn on the fly and being inept. With the addition of Tolner their offense has moved the ball much better, not with standing the turnovers by Dilfer.

A very salient point that none of the radio hacks locally or nationally bring up.

The 9ers could be better served in the next draft by focusing on O and D line and not overpay for first round gambles. Although Mario Williams II would be swell.

I'd rather have a monster pass-rusher than D line guy, or even an O line guy. We get NO pressure on the QB, which makes every facet of our game suffer. Get a good pass rusher, and I think a lot of our problems look a lot better. Including offense.

A good pass rush stops the QB from moving the chains, forces bad throws which can turn into interceptions, causes fumbles which create turnovers, all of which puts the ball back in the hands of our offense, longer time of possession, more chances to score, etc etc etc. PASS RUSH baby. Pass Rush.

A good DL will take on more blockers, making it easier for the passrushing OLB to get to the QB, not to mention help with the run defense.

1) Adarious Bowman WR
2) Frank Okam DE
3) Chad Rinehart OT
4) Bruce Davis OLB
5) Shannon Tevaga OG
6) Thomas Brown RB
7) Barry Booker DT

I think San Francisco could take advantage of the quality WR's and OT's that will be available in the late first round.
