DRAFT 2012 | thoughts...

...so, let's talk draft!

Obviously we need wideout help, but the Niners should get TE Coby Fleener from Stanford @ #30 - he's better than any wideout they could get there - and he knows JH's system already.

He's 6-6, 245 and has a 40-time of 4.67 - imagine him on the field together w/ VD! Every DCs nightmare...

TE Coby Fleener is the first-team all-Pac-12 tight end, and is the Cardinal's big play receiver. He is probably more of deep threat than the Cardinal wide receivers. The third-fastest player on the team, the 6-6, 245-pound Fleener is an excellent athlete who has 10 touchdown catches, easily the most in the country by a tight end.

Key phrase her: He is probably more of deep threat than the Cardinal wide receivers

Jenkins @30???!? Seriously? With Coby Fleener available! wooooaaaah ,looks like Baalke knows something everybody else doesn't ;-)
4.39 ain't too shabby, though...

I'm disappointed anyway :-(
Or maybe the Niners trade up and pick Coby in the 2nd round - the Giants didn't grab him...

The 49ers select Illinois WR A.J. Jenkins, which is a bit of a shocker. Jenkins (6-0, 192), who was viewed as a second-round pick, had 90 catches for 1,276 yards and eight touchdowns in 2011 and was a first-team, all-Big Ten selection. Jenkins at No. 30 isn’t too far from where he was expected to be drafted. In fact, it’s somewhat similar to San Francisco’s selection of Aldon Smith at No. 7 last year.

DeCastro went to the Steelers @24

A.J. Jenkins to 49ers: Video Highlights, Scouting Report and Analysis
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1155908-aj-jenkins-to-49ers-video-highlights-scouting-report-and-analysis?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=san-francisco-49ers

Despite inconsistent play at the quarterback position at Illinois, Jenkins hauled in 90 catches for 1,276 yards (14.2 yard average) and eight touchdowns during a senior season that saw him skyrocket up draft boards.

He projects as a slot receiver but has the size to line up outside as well. The 6'0", 190-pound Jenkins uses his body well in adjusting to throws and has reliable hands.

Analysis: Speed, speed and more speed. Reeks of a reach this early, but Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh have proven to take players with a special talent, and mold the rest into a finished product. With Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree, Ted Ginn Jr. and Mario Manningham, Jenkins won't have to be ready in year one. For a team with few glaring needs outside of O-line, this looks like a luxury pick for now.

the same is true with PC and JS. they got the man they wanted, and a couple late picks in addition.

"Irvin's problem was not football," Polian said. "He is an outstanding rusher. ... Pete Carroll knows him well. Pete's had a history of being able to coach those kinds of guys and do well with them. Hopefully, for the young man's sake, it will work out fine."

GO SEAHAWKS!

No dice :-(
Coby is now reunited with his QB!

Well, obviously JH, knowing him best, had a reason to pass on him...
