Default 49ers Gameday Thread: Week 7: 49ers at BYE

Week 7:
Sunday, October 23, 2011

San Francisco 49ers (5-1)
at
BYE (0-0)

Bye is fierce. It's another road game. I'm worried.

OK, enough of that.

I say we use this week's gameday thread to discuss the current crop of rookie 49ers. I gotta say, this draft class has surprised me. I didn't love it. Thought it was kind of solid, but unspectacular. I was wrong.

2011 49ers Draft Picks
Rd Sel Ovr Player Pos School
1 7 7 Aldon Smith DE Missouri
2 4 36 Colin Kaepernick QB Nevada
3 16 80 Chris Culliver S South Carolina
4 18 115 Kendall Hunter RB Oklahoma State
5 32 163 Daniel Kilgore G Appalachian State
6 17 182 Ronald Johnson WR USC
6 25 190 Colin Jones S TCU
7 8 211 Bruce Miller OLB UCF
7 38 239 Mike Person T Montana State
7 49 250 Curtis Holcomb CB Florida A&M

Aldon looks like a monster. He's getting better. I think we've found our dominant passrusher. He's not there yet, but I think he's going to get there faster than I imagined.

Colin Kaepernick is definitely not ready. I know it's a longterm project with him so I'm fine with taking it very slowly. I'm still not sure he's a future franchise QB so this pick remains a question to me. I like that Harbaugh likes him.

Culliver is the wildcard for me. I was very skeptical of the pick, but he's been impressive so far. Small sample size obviously, but much better than I expected.

Hunter has been a nice pick. Love the explosion and he's a tougher runner than I previously thought.

Kilgore was very impressive in the preseason. Looked like a future starter. We'll have to wait a while to see if it was a fluke or not. But I like that they can hold him back a year. He's likely not ready for real action.

Bruce Miller has transitioned nicely to FB. He's pretty athletic which allows Harbaugh to move him around a lot. Could stick around for a while if he continues to improve and refine the position change.

These picks make me happy.


Standings:

NFC West
1. San Francisco 49ers (5-1)
2. Seattle Seahawks (2-3)
3. Arizona Cardinals (1-4)
4. St. Louis Rams (0-5)


Special Note: I'll leave the week 6 Gameday thread open for those that want to discuss Handshakegate.

Special Note II: Gore > Watters.
