Well, both Reese and Newsome did a nice job overall, but I don't think it was anywhere near their best. First, Hankins? Did they just draft Linvell Joseph, another 320 + pounder? Whatever happended to their Nascar unit?? I like the Moore pick as a fit, but the trade up for Nassib was terrible IMO. As far as Newsome, awesome first round pick in Elam, so so 2nd round pick in Arthur Brown who doesn't fit a 3-4 ideally.
I'll take this opportunity to pimp what Reggie McKenzie was able to accomplish with the Raiders. We came in with 7 picks that included no 2nd rounder and no 5th rounder. We ended up with 10 picks which included the 10th pick of the 2nd round. CB was #1 need by most counts, we not only got the CB we were looking for in the 1st, but we were able to get that 2nd rounder and turned it into Menelik Watson who took care of a need at RT long term. Reggie was able to get likely a starting TE in Nick Kasa in the 6th. With Kasa, OLB Sio Moore, Watson and Hayden, I believe we got 4 starters as well as D-line and QB depth. And after what we saw from Rod Streator last year, wouldn't sleep on Brice Butler, a WR who has the same dimensions and performance numbers.
Kaepernick is this years pat white. Thin, gimmick offense and doesn't possess an nfl arm. The ncaa constantly regurgitates clones of past players and amazingly enough, tricks some people into thinking they're better than their cloned half. Kaepernick was a complete waste of a senior bowl qb spot. A better qb will come from the east/west shrine or whatever they're calling it now...count on it
