Crabtree aside, this was another awful draft for Scott Mac. This should be his last year in SF. Giving away a high 2 and a high 4 for a 1 next year made no sense when we had players who could have helped us on the board.
We could have drafted pass rush help at 2 with Sincim. Or we could have had Shonn Green, a perfect running back in the mold of what Sing wanted. We could have Rashad Johnson for safety in the 3rd. Could have had Dorell Scott at NT in the 4th. Are you guys going to tell me they wouldn't help helped us? Because if you do, you haven't seen these guys play.
We also passed up Wm Moore, another very talented safety, As was Derek Pegues. Lawrence Sidbury was also around for the taking, but we passed.
Instead, Mac's brain stepped out for a cup of Coffee. The kid has no change of direction, a weak lower body, drives only downhill, fumble prone, and then -- shouldn't anyone want to check out who a RB has on his OLine, since great Olines open up huge holes at the college level and make lots of big backs with no shiftiness gain 5 to 10 yards at a time. Who was his LT? Andre Smith! MAC>>> what were you thinking? Or not thinking?
So now here is the question for you? Who can help us at pass rush (NOT Peppers, too expensive) and safety and CB and NT and OL when FA II comes around? When teams start to release guys like Edgerrin James, etc. Who could be there for us that's a veteran that can fill the gap for a year or two?
If we don't make some serious moves in FAII this season is over. Our defense will be awful against good offenses like it was last year. And we will all be looking for something else to do with our Sunday after a particularly ugly gain by the opposing offense on 3rd down in the 3rd quarter. Sound familiar? (That;'s if we kept the game close for that long, which against NE and the other good offenses we didn't.)
So who can save the D in FAII? The forum is open . . . . I'll start it off:
After Coffee is a bust, we might be able to pick up Edgerrin James for our 2nd RB if he is released. . . . Your turn. Think mostly OL and defense. . . . . .
