I have a feeling Mcclain and Earl Thomas will be 49ers. That would make them a very good D and pair Mcclain with Willis to have the best duo at LB in the NFL.

the 49ers wont select a linebacker they have more glaring needs like a tackle.

The only RT posibility is Trent Williams.

They will select whoever they want your not Mike Singletary the 49ers go 6-10 each year on average.

I sure hope its Sean Weatherspoon. If not they should trade down and take Maurkic Pouncey.

Yes, Maurkice Pouncey rated #18 on Mel Kipers Big Board. Either one will be a great pick.:tt03:

The reason I say Weatherspoon or Pouncey is that I feel the DB depth is so much greater than at LB or G/C. Quality DB's will be available until the 4th or 5h rounds . But after the first 2 rounds the quality at LB and G/C drops of dramatically.

Anthony Davis would make a good RT. He's a decent value for their second 1st rounder.

Sean Weatherspoons out shined McClain in the Bench Press. I cant wait for the 40 and drills. However the better he performs the more likely he wont make it to us.

The only RT posibility is Trent Williams.

If a team just wants a RT, they can take one in the 3rd round or later. Kyle Calloway or Mike Tepper are guys that look to grade out as a RT. Early in the 1st round I would hope a team is smart enough to take a guy that can play LT or be a pro Bowl RT.

Case in point of what not to do is take a guy like Gosder Cherilus at #23 who can only play RT.

I'm "spooning" from now until the draft. :tt:

I guess so if you feel Spoon is a downgrade compared to D. Williams of ET. Spoon may very well be the best LB in the draft. Farrior is not getting any younger and there will be a lot more quality DT and S in later rounds than LB.

Weatherspoon is nowhere near the best linebacker in the draft i can think of 3 other linebackers right now that are better. Rolando McClain is such a beast at stopping the run and Micah Johnson is near as good and Daryl Washington is great.

I don't like Dan Williams but he's a good option for us.

There's also more quality linebackers in the other rounds and Hampton and Hoke arn't getting younger.

FYI we now have 10 active linebackers on our roster.

So then it's survival of the fittest. That is how you make a better team. I think Linval Joseph or Cam Thomas can be drafted later and are just as good.

How do you figure that if there is 10 LB's we now at least 5 that will be kept the rest is a battle for a spot.

Well usually in survival of the fittest, the weakest non durables die out first. The winner there would be Johnny Williams

Why do so many people want Spoon? Farrior will play like 2 more years, why draft someone who will ride the bench for 2 years when you can take someone like Earl Thomas who will make an instant impact. Draft a ILB next season so he can get a year behind Farrior, one year is more then enough, but two would be dumb and a waste. Besides Spoon is more of an OLB, sure he could play ILB but it's a waste to take a LB so high this year.

I'm not saying good night how rude, you said surivial of the fittest.

Farrior will be the least fittest there whilst the most athletic will be Johnny Williams (Do you know how he is?) and Derrick Doggett.

Survival of the fittest is a term usualy used in battles such as the Gladiators of rome or the Dinosaurs period during heatwaves where the scavangers fought for food. Not linebacker depth battles on the football field.

Your post was dumb not mine.

What does FITTEST MEAN

James Farrior is a top 10 linebacker. And at least a top 3 linebacker this decade

Which is exactly why you draft a guy to take his spot so he can learn from one of the best!
