They should pass on this guy. I can see him making up imaginary teammates during the season. Do you really want to see out on the field, yelling out play calls to people who dont really exists...........I dont think so .That's assuming that the 49ers don;t snap'm up in the first. Then he's and his cast of imaginary extras are your problem.
You also have to remember, most of these "experts" (and I say that with tounge in cheek) predict drafts by what they believe are team needs. The Ravens usually pick BPA, especially since they are picking last.Don't be fooled by the slogan "best player available". Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and a few other fanbases state this on a regular basis but team needs defintely fall into BPA, especially in the early rounds.
Ravens are still a BPA team, but in the Harbaugh era they tend to trade around a bit to help a need and BPA coincideLet's not act like things changed because of Harbaugh.
McGahee ended the season 2007 on IR. No depth behind him on a run first team. Considering he was injured in 2008 yet again, it proved to be a need.
e.g Ray Rice (McGahee coming off a great year)
2 Ss and 2 TEs in the same draftAgreed, BPA doesn't really start until the 3rd round. All of these players were 3rd round or later.
Sergio Kindle (knee issue) and Upshaw (size issue) were guys with huge questionsSergio Kindle's position was a definite need. The 2009 pass rush was horrible. Upshaw was also a need and predicted by MANY beforehand. JJ had left and the team had no viable started at OLB.
even though people say they "needed" OLBs those were guys that were questionable to even beat guys like JJ or Kruger but we took a chance on because they were 1st round talent in the 2nd round.I don't even get this. JJ and Upshaw were never on the team together so I'm not sure why he needed to beat him out. Upshaw also started more games than Kruger last season so it's safe to say he beat him out. Nobody ever questioned whether Kindle would beat out JJ because he never got a chance. Kruger was barely thought of in 2010 after doing almost nothing in 2009 so who even considered him a factor??
That's assuming that the 49ers don;t snap'm up in the first. Then he's and his cast of imaginary extras are your problem.Hey, knock it off!! Dont bring that jinx on us - lol.
i remember Bill Bellichick saying he never thought in a million years Ravens would pick rice - there were lots of great players that could've helped our needs at starting positions
Picking a back up RB in the 2nd round doesn't fill a needSo a backup to a starter that was just put on IR isn't needed?
there were lots of great players that could've helped our needs at starting positionsName them. Everybody that went between Ray Rice and Tavares Gooden was garbage. Let me know the great players that would have filled needs at starting positions that we skipped out on for Rice.
Todd Heap was BPA, they had sharpe. Again you can sit there and say, well hey sharpe was old and on his way out... but at the end of the day the Ravens could've used that pick to grab another starterSo Ozzie's never drafted a player as insurance for an aging veteran? So Tavares Gooden was really that good? What about
All before Harbaugh era. In Harbaugh era we were trading up for needs like Joe Flacco Micahel Oherlol so you forget how far they traded up to get Kyle Boller huh? Even gave up their first round pick from the following draft.
