    Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State 2nd round.

    Just have a feeling, not saying this is what I want us to do or what we should do.

    I like Osweiler as a developmental prospect in the 4th round or higher though. I think he's best suited in an offense like the Steelers, Chargers or Raiders; in other words, teams that utilize a lot of deep patterns a 9-routes. You put Osweiler in a quick read/west coast offense and you're going to have problems.

    I wouldn't mind him as a 3rd rounder. Seems like the ideal developmental project because he really had no business coming out this year. He can sit and learn for a few years. 6'8", big arm, and great (basketball) feet.

    I just don't think he'll last til the 3rd round. If the rumors about us considering Dalton in the 2nd last year were accurate, I wouldn't be shocked if we made a pick like this.

    give me Kirk Cousins, Michigan State
    over Nick Foles

    but I really like this kid Chandler Harnish, QB, Northern Illinois

    Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

    Senio Kelemete, G, Washington 4th

    An athletic player who lacks ideal height and arm length for offensive tackles, but has enough height for a guard…as impressive range…fires out of his stance…still plays like a defensive linemen, agressive and strong…has a mean streak in his game…usually plays with good leverage…really nice run blocker


    Dominique Hamiltom, DT, Missouri 6-5 320

    I am guessing the RB people don't see a future for Phillip Tanner on this roster? Or I guess with Felix being in his contract year it's a safe bet to assume we'll be taking a RB which makes sense b/c I don't want anymore of Felix after 2012 with all the injuries

    I hope Donta Hightower happens unless one of the top five fall into our lap.

    Let me give some reasons for Dont'a Hightower...

    1) Loosely interpreting Jerry Jones' interview a few weeks ago when he was saying the 49ers inside duo of linebackers (Bowman & Willis) were the prototype of what they are trying to do in Dallas. More to the point, Jerry said one of the differences is that they don't necessarily have the "thumper" at one of the spots as the 49ers do. That "thumper" could come in the form of 6'4" 260 lb Dont'a Hightower.

    2) Taking point #1 into consideration, I could see Dallas giving Bruce Carter a sort of Kevin Burnett'esque hybrid nickel/dime'backer/spy/do-it-all kind of linebacker. While Lee and Hightower could be the starters.

    3) Just from a sheer talent and depth standpoint, this team needs freshmeat at the position. Keith Brooking and Bradie James' future with the team are in doubt. Orie Lemon doesn't necessarily excite me and wouldn't preclude me from adding someone in the draft.

    Ryan Tannehill at 14.


    :eek:


    Actually, close to Realticks prediction I could see us trading up for Vontaze Burfict if he is still around early in the 2nd round.


    He has some issues, but, he is a talented football player.

    You make 3 very convincing points and I'm a noted fan of Hightower so I would have no problems at all with that pick.

    picking Janoris Jenkins over decastro at 14. which i dont mind both fill major needs and imo cb is more important and harder to fill. plus jenkins' TALENT is a steal at 14.

    Wouldn't surprise me if we draft a receiver although it would infuriate me.

    yeah but that changes if Robinson get way overpayed by someone and leaves.

    Then wr should be looked at between 3-5 rounds imo harris is not the answer.

    I think the freakishness of his size is what's getting him a lot of hype right now. How is he, as a prospect, compared to Foles and B.J. Coleman?
