i think the Niners had a fantastic draft. I was ecstatic they picked Trey Lance, he's a highly-mobile throw-first QB. I'm very optimistic that Jimmy G can stay healthy and Trey can take a more "steve young" route.How do you feel about your favorite teams draft?
Broncos stacked defense even more, and all late picks seem to be special teams prospects because their ST was horrid.
I give them a B+.
1 Great DB, an interesting beast of a RB, one stud of a small school lineman and after that mostly went best athlete on the board regardless of position
Interesting stuff on Lance. I see him as a boom or bust guy. Huge upside but could come up empty too.i think the Niners had a fantastic draft.

And they grabbed Trey Sermon, I couldn't believe he was still available...I guess the scouts just watched Fields play, but if you like Frank Gore I think you're gonna love Trey Sermon. His contact-balance is out of the fucking Matrix.
They also needed O-line help and DB depth, they picked up Aaron Banks and that dude is HUGE for a guy of his athleticism. I think what I like most is that he has a big chip on his shoulder and likes to pave linebackers into the turf. Jaylon Moore is another lineman from that mold, but I think he's more of a utility lineman.
The last 3 spots went to DBs. I like Thomas as an "ironman" player, he can return kicks and even get some reps on offense, very versatile even if he doesn't develop in to a cop corner. Lenoir played at OR, so I got to watch a couple of his games. He was definitely their 'shut-down' guy against the best in the PAC, so definitely potential. Hufanga is the gamble, but if he can stay healthy he'll be an excellent compliment to Jimmie Ward.
If they'd drafted Mac Jones or Justin Fields, I'd probably give them a B+. But I haven't been this excited for Niner QB since they drafted Kap.
I'll give the Niners an A-.
the only time I see these guys come up empty is when they're run-to-throw QBs, like Lamar Jackson. Those guys tend to have shorter careers, but they make a difference immediately. The fact that Trey has time to sit back and learn from a pupil of Bellicheat and be coached by Shanahan - a 2nd generation QB coach - indicates the odds of being a true "Bust" are low. You don't know if you have an Aaron Rodgers until you need an Aaron Rodgers and your guy delivers, but I like Trey's skillset and the path he's on.Interesting stuff on Lance.
