Stacking up the NFC Wests Draft
Sat Apr 27, 2013 12:29 am
  • Figure we could keep an eye on stuff and see by the end of the day tomorrow how things stack up, I'll update tomorrow night and it should bring some interesting thoughts at least. As of today I'm look at the Rams as the biggest improvement so far. I think everyone of the 4 into the 3rd round will be starters or significant roll players.

    In fairness the 49ers and us don't need as much improvement as valued depth which I think we got but won't see the impact as much as the Rams will show.

  • i'm intrigued by tavon austin and mathieu being reggular opponents. Gotta think Mathieu is a response to Austin and Harvin on a regular basis. Alot of people hated on him here, but I think u'll be regretting the fact you will be playing against TM7 twice a year.

  • I think there are a lot of chess moves being made just within our division right now to counter each other, expand that to the league in how we have started to change the culture of the league. Jacksonville, New York, both having the phrases Compete in their statements, looking at how teams are drafting taller CB's and speed speed speed on the edges and going with lighter guys.

  • Im not afraid of Honey Badger. Harvin is going to smoke that guy so bad.

    I also think Austin is a joke. That guy is going to get bent in half playing in the NFC west, seriously, the dude is 5'9" and 170 pounds.

    I think Arizona had a great draft. Cooper and Minter are really great prospects and Honey Badger is a wild card. I personally dont think he will be that great since he is a slot corner only but who knows.

    Im predicting this right now. Austin will not play all 16 games this year, will probably get injured, and he will be the largest bust in the NFC West from this draft

    Having said that I think the rams did pretty good with their other picks and should probably be a bit better. Their WR core is young though. Didnt they draft 2 guys last year at WR? And then they drafted 2 again this year.

    Apparently the tweety birds are planning to start him out at free safety. According to Sando.

  • Austin = Darren Sprowles ...
    These types of players are dynamic playmakers ... and will give teams lots of problems.

  • I have a feeling Austin and Bailey are going to be a very good combo and help Bradford out alot. I think Bailey will be seen as one of the steals of this draft and Austin will live up to his billing as a stud type game changer. I am very curious to see what they do in their running game but with Fisher leading and building this team, I have little doubt he already has something up his sleeve.

    As for Austin getting injured. I don't see it. He is extremely slippery and will likely be playing short field and out of the back field. I also don't see Bradford laying him out for those violent hits like Keapernick did to VD.

    I like what the Rams are doing and believe they will surpass the Niners soon, if not already. Fisher has shown he has a plan and knows how to execute it. The Rams will end up being our biggest challenge in the near future and I think the funnest competition to watch.

  • I see SEA, SF, STL all being powerhouses this year. I don't see ARI competing at all. Their offense has been horrible, and yet only one of their first three picks addressed any issue. I don't understand their draft at all. The rest of us have done well so far.

  • I think all four NFC West teams have had decent to good drafts so far. If St. Louis can protect Bradford long enough for him to get the ball to his new weapons then they're going to be tough. I can see 3 playoff teams coming from the NFCW this coming season.

  • Was really hoping the Niners would take a chance on Honey Badger... but I don't think they have any room for a new CB right now with the current contracts.

    Should be a fantastic pick for the cards.

  • You have seen Austin before.

    Go look up the name Metcalf.... Austin was a GREAT pick and he will win games for them. Combine that with a great coach and the fact that now they actually have weapons for their QB, St. Louis is going to be even more dangerous and we just squeaked by them as it was. And frankly, their coach has a track record of being scary anyway.

    San Francisco also fixed some of their problems, because as you remember they really didn't rotate guys. They had great starters and almost no depth. That is one reason that the "lights out" thing helped them so much in the SB. They could be very good but would get tired. Also, they are just loading the team up with guys that attack QBs. In a passing league you can either field a great pass defense (like we had) or you can just attack the QB. They got better and they didn't really have many holes to begin with.

    As far as the Cards go, they had a pretty stout defense they just had no offense - so the defense was getting worn out halfway through the games. I am not sure how picking more defensive players helps them at all. I would have picked the kid from Syracuse or an OL, they needed QBs and a line to keep their QBs upright. More corners and a LB doesn't really help much though kid420 can probably return punts and kicks or something to keep their best CB from getting hurt.

  • As far as keeping pace, so far I'm not seeing our draft being huge, we're just plugging gaps and kind of looking to the future on some of these picks.

    I think as far as talent, we are such a young team, I'm theorizing we'll get more production out of our younger players' development more than the draft at this point.

    The 49ers seem to have gotten more talent, but will Harbaugh actually play them ?

    The Rams draft is looking scary solid and they worry me. With the way their defense is developing, it will keep them in a lot of games.

    Don't sleep on the Cards; Palmer has the kind of arm to attack downfield like Arians likes. I just don't see them improving on offense enough in this draft, but their defense is good enough to hang with anybody, provided their new DC is worth a damn.

  • The Cards had to replace Adrian Wilson, who is finally off that damn team, and I believe Kid420 (great nickname for him TwistedHusky) will take that role.

    I think Ogeltree may end up being the replacement for Laurinaitis in a year or two as his cap hit is getting ridiculous if I remember correctly.

    With the Niners pairing Carradine and Lemonier, their D-Line depth just got much much better.

  • I am astonished that the Cardinals took Matthieu that high, and I especially thought that it was crazy that, even though he ostensibly fills a need at nickel corner, Arians wants to play him at safety.
