Seahawks 23, 49ers 17

It was a one man show in Seattle Sunday night — for the 49ers, at least. Colin Kaepernick single handedly kept the team in the game with his 130 yards of running until the fourth quarter, then he single handedly took the team out of the game with his two interceptions and a fumble. And the season ended on the last interception as the Seahawks beat the 49ers 23 to 17.

Before the game, 49er WR Anquan Boldin said sooner or later in the game, one team would crack. Unfortunately, it was the 49ers, who melted down in the 4th quarter. This is the second straight year that Kaepernick has had the ball in his hands at the end of the game with a chance to win it and failed to do so. And both games ended the same way, with Colin forcing a pass to a well covered Michael Crabtree in the back right corner of the end zone. He flirted with interceptions in all three playoff games and finally got bit. The last three 49er possessions went fumble, int, int.

Still, you’d have to say the better team won. Seattle ran the ball better and passed it better, while the 49ers did well at neither. Vernon Davis and Frank Gore were both stuffed. The 49er defense played a terrific game, but had three critical errors which led to seventeen points. The first mistake, a 51 yard bomb to Doug Baldwin over 49er safeties Donte Whitner and Eric Reid, who had let him drift behind them while watching Russell Wilson run around in his own backfield, gave Seattle its first life in the game. The second was a Marshawn Lynch 40 yard run that tied the game at ten. And the third was the clincher — a 4th and 7 thirty-five yard TD pass to Jermaine Kearse to begin the final quarter.

Total yards in the game: Seattle 308, 49ers 308. Turnovers: Seattle 1, 49ers 3. And all three TO’s happened in the 4th quarter.

On the bright side, the 49ers finally held their own at Qwest Field. It wasn’t enough to win the game, but it didn’t send the team home in embarrassment.

On the dark side, our secondary sucks, our running game sucks, our passing game sucks, and our wide receivers are slow. Some would say our play calling also sucks, but I’m sure we’ll get into that in depth in the coming days and weeks. The team is good enough to bowl over most of the teams in the league, but for the third straight year they have been exposed against the big boy teams in the playoffs — especially the secondary.

And that will be the end of the 2013 season for the San Francisco 49ers. 2013 was a gritty effort by the team, playing most of the year with only one viable WR. But a big offseason lies ahead, with some critical contract issues and a roster makeover on the plate. The team will also be playing their 2014 games in the brand new Santa Clara stadium, where Home Field Advantage has yet to be determined.

For the nonce, however, I believe it’s time to go eat some worms and throw down a week’s worth of expletive deleteds.

    Just let me get this out of my system now.
    Did we sign Peyton Manning yet?
    I feel better now.

  2. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Kap: 153 yds passing, 130 running.

    A QB who runs for as nearly many yds as he passes?

    Did we sign Peyton Manning yet? I feel even better now.

  3. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    You can say Kap lost the game, and he did, but he would not have had to try to be a hero if earlier in the game the play calling had made any sense. I was able to call almost every play we ran. That is never a good thing. Even when we had 3 WRs on the field , often they were bunched next to the tackle. What’s the point? Gore had 14 yards on 11 carries. That is not Kap’s fault, that is squarely on RoBaugh and the Roman Candle Offense. The one time Gore ran out of a 3 WR set with wides lined up wide he gained 9 yards. Right after that Hunter gained 11 from the same formation. Is there anything that can get RoBaugh to notice this amazing nuance in the modern game? Maybe Del and my friend Don were correct when they said we’ll never win it all with Harbaugh. When you see them choke in big games with play calling like this it makes you go hmmm!

    Kap was called on for the last few games to win it late with game winning and sealing drives. He did not have enough in the tank to bail out the coaching staff one more time. Calling plays is a part of the game some are good at some just never get. Walsh was the master. My problem is probably that I got spoiled watching him in action. Norv Turner runs an offense I don’t care for but he is a master play caller. He would be the perfect OC for Harbaugh. RoBaugh fields a good team and prepares them well, then there is the play calling. When it comes to that aspect of the game we are stuck with the modern day Bo Schembechler.

    You can’t run an offense one way and then tell your QB and team that they need to do it this way now with the game on the line and expect high proficiency. A more balanced attack for the whole game would provide for that.

    We mare not ball control, we are three and out unless we can manage to pop a big play. Then when we get behind we ask the QB to bail us out. John Elway was great at that with Dan Reaves but even he never won the big one until Shanahan got to Denver with play calling that made sense.

    Roman either needs to mature as a play caller or go somewhere else if we are going to take the next step. If he goes we’ll find out how much is him and how much is Harbaugh. I fear it could be more Harbaugh than Roman. If so, all we really have is the reincarnation of Chuck Knox or Bo Schembechler as our coach. Good team every year, never win the big one.

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    The officiating yesterday reminded me of the Bill Leavy officiated Super Bowl 40 fiasco. That one cost the Seahawks, this one gave them what they needed to win.

  5. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    When you look back at it, we had to overcome a very good team, the road crowd, the officiating, Roman’s horrendous play calling and Kap’s mistakes and still it came down to the 18 yard line with 30 seconds and two time outs. Amazing. We really should have won that game, but that is sports.

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I hope all goes well for Bowman. They say it is a torn ACL.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I have never rooted for a player to get a CEI. A CEI is a Career Ending Injury. Richard Sherman is making me rethink that. Hats off to him for making a great play on a well thrown ball but his reaction was as punk as I have ever seen. I think he actually works at being hated.

  8. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    David Fucello said the Seahawk fans were throwing food at Bowman as he was carted off the field.

    It probably wasn’t food, it was their brains, which are useless to them.

  11. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Sherman is maybe the most incredibly skilled jackass loser I’ve ever seen.

  12. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Yesterday was brutally tough and hard to take.
    I definitely will make plans NOT to WATCH TV on Feb 2.
    The NFL season is over for me. Just scouting new talent in the draft and free agency is on deck.

  13. BigjonNo Gravatar says:

    I can’t believe we ended the game with 2 timeouts left. Perhaps next time we use them before we go for Crabtree in the right corner of the end zone again. Great play by Sherman. Crabs should have pushed off! Red & Gold until I’m Dead & Cold!!

  14. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Odds on next season and the Niners are co-favorites to win.
    Take into account that the Rams should be tougher if they draft wisely with Bradford coming back at QB and the Cards are a bona fide RB away from being really dangerous. NFC West will just get tougher.

  15. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Per Barrows the Niners have signed Lawrence Okoye and Devon Wylie to futures contracts, thus retaining them for next training camp and allowing them to work through the Niner OTAs.

  16. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    MRI shows torn ACL and MCL for LB NaVorro Bowman.

  17. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Iupati suffered a broken fibula but will not require surgery
    and the prognosis is good that he’ll be ready to go by training camp in Aug.
    Bowman’s initial rehab time is around 9 months which looks like missing almost first half of the season.

  18. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Some tidbits from Cam Inman garnered as the Niners cleaned out their lockers and had their team meeting.
    ===
    – Cornerback Tarell Brown, a pending free agent who forfeited a $2 million bonus by skipping last offseason’s workouts, said he would love to return.

    “I enjoy playing with this group,” said Brown, who started all three playoff games and is still recovering from a Nov. 17 rib injury.

    – After 13 seasons in Cleveland, kicker Phil Dawson excelled this season and “absolutely” wants to return rather than leave as a free agent.

    “I’m sure that’s coming down the chute here, but we’ll wait and see what happens,” said Dawson, who made 32-of-36 field-goal attempts in the regular season and all six attempts in the playoffs.

    – Defensive lineman Quinton Dial said he did not trip Seahawks gunner Jeremy Lane, who ran through the 49ers sideline on a punt return.

    Replays show Lane either got nudged by a 49ers assistant strength coach or merely slipped on a yard marker that was on the ground.

    – Linebacker Aldon Smith said he was able to accomplish newfound goal in life during his 2013 season, which included a five-game absence while in treatment after an alleged drunken-driving accident: “My goal is to continue to moving forward and take it one day at a time,” Smith said.

    – Center Jonathan Goodwin will consider returning for a 13th NFL season. “What creates uncertainty for me is being a 35-year-old free agent, which in this time of the NFL can be tough,” Goodwin said.

    – Running back Marcus Lattimore, who spent his rookie season recovering from a devastating knee injury, plans on training for three weeks in South Carolina before returning to the 49ers facility. Asked what he learned this year, he said: “Mentally, the biggest thing for me was understanding the offense. Getting with Tom (Rathman), Frank (Gore) and everybody, they showed me how to play the game.

    “Tom’s biggest thing is pass protection. If you can’t protect the quarterback, you can’t play.”

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Gore was not in the game because his knee was not right.
    It has also been revealed he broke his hand during the game and is having surgery to repair that.
    On the last drive he caught a crucial 17 yd pass with a broken hand.
    Gore is one tough Niner and I’ll never doubt him.

  20. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We’re holding 5 Picks in the Top 94 going into the Draft.
    Be nice to add a Comp Pick into that 3rd Rd mix too.

    Gotta figure a WR/DB or 2 might come in this area.

  21. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    WR Jordan Matthews’ measurables are favorable too.
    6’2.5″ 209 10.5″ hands/33″ Arms.
    Have to consider him, simply because he was productive at Vandy and, has Cousin Jerry Rice at his disposal.

  22. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Anyone have any feedback on BYU WR Cody Hoffman?
    Nearly 6’4″ 218 and 33″ arms as well.
    Put up some huge numbers for the Cougars too.
    260/3612/33TDs
    Have to keep an eye on him too.

  23. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like Alex Smith is going to the Pro Bowl, stepping in for Brady who’s weeping at home.

  24. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I need 40 times, NJ. We don’t need any more possession type WRs. We need a burner. OK, looked around a bit.

    Matthews is big and slow (4.60 40 time). Hoffman is bigger and equally slow (4.60).

    Odell Beckham has speed (4.40) and decent size (6’0″ 190 lb) but he’s fast and makes plays deep. He’s projected as a 2nd or 3rd rounder, but he’ll likely move up a little. It would be hard to wait and see if he’s there with our 2, but maybe package our 2 2s to move up to the top 3rd of round 2 (huh?) to get him. His LSU teammate Jarvis Landry looks like a gamer as well. Not quite as fast but makes plays all over the place.

    Marquise Lee (U$C)looks very fast, but he’ll be gone. Josh Huff from Orygun is another slot guy who’s fast with a little size (5’11”- 205).

    The point being, a speed guy is what this offense sorely lacks. The problem is, are the Niners even built to take advantage of a speed guy? We throw deep less than any other team out there.

    If we somehow lost Roman and gained a little more aggressiveness on offense, I’d be more inclined to go for a burner. Frankly, I’m nort sure if they’d even use a guy like Beckham right.

  25. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    With the new pro bowl format, Smith will get picked last . . .

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    NJ

    I think Jordan Matthews would be a good pick in Rd 2.
    I am skeptical about bloodlines though.
    The Montana boys can’t even start for a major college and have been transferring from one school to the next trying to ride the Montana name.
    Case in point Jerry Rice Jr. His old man couldn’t teach him much.
    http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/06/15/jerry-rice-jr-moves-on-from-ucla-to-unlv/

  27. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So this Saturday is the Senior Bowl and a chance to see potential draft choices coached by the Jags and Falcon coaching staffs going against pro level talent. Some will elevate their standing in the upcoming draft.
    More than an All Star game because the practices are intense.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlL_hjfWVfg

  28. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Tell that to Clay Matthews. His brother, father, uncle, and grandfather all played in the NFL. He’s got 3 cousins playing college football.

    If we don’t re-sign Boldin (a big possibility), Hoffman would be a good get. Crabs isn’t quite athletic enough to face off with Sherman 2x a year. A big guy like Hoffman would be cool.

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So no doubt Chuck would draft Aaron Rodgers brother Jordan also a QB or Carson Palmer’s brother another QB named Jordan are floating around the NFL looking for a roster spot.
    Barry Sanders Jr had 42 yds rushing and one TD for Stanford.
    You make it on your own merits and ability not on your family name.

  30. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Of course I am, Mr. Hyperbole. You are the one discounting Jordan Matthews for no other reason than his distant relationship to Jerry Rice. What a maroon.

    Odell Beckham’s parents are a) LSU running back, and b) a track star as LSU. So, naturally that knocks down his status.

  31. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    As does anyone with athletic parents. Guess that shrinks up the draft class, eh?

  32. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Not going to get baited into your troll talk.

  33. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    What would be your point?
    Odell Beckham Sr never played in the NFL.
    You make it on your own, not on your parent’s back.

  34. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    My point is you throw out generalizations as facts and then get bent when people respond to them.

    You say you are skeptical about Jordan Matthews because his mom is Jerry Rice’s cousin? Really? And you base on the fact that Joe Montana’s kids aren’t Joe? Sorry if I can’t question your logic on this. Are Mattrews’ numbers bogus? His ~1,400 yards? His ‘Elite WR of the Year’ trophy? Is anyone looking to draft Nate Montana?

    Again, sorry if I can’t question your circular logic.

  35. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    If only you could learn to read. What did I say about Jordan Matthews? I said he would be a good 2nd rd pick.
    It’s there for all to see in black and white.
    You start adding things and changing what I wrote.

    I mentioned that Jerry Rice Jr was at UCLA for 4 years and caught 9 passes so he didn’t learn from his old man nor has his ability.
    You seriously have a problem in how you twist things around and control the narrative..

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    You posted that Jordan Matthews was big and slow and then say the Niners don’t need any more possession types.
    Then you further post that Matthews numbers are real and his being WR of the year with 1400 yds.
    Trying to have it both ways again with the flip flop?
    You are always true to form.

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Wow Chuck continues with his errant info.
    If you read some of his posts you might also become clueless about football.
    Chuck makes the statement that Ted Ginn’s punt returning with the Niners sucked. In 3 years with the Niners Ginn averaged 13.4, 12.3 and 10.2 yds per punt return. That’s above average if you can gain 10 plus yds a return.
    If you want to be misinformed just read what Chuck spews.
    Chances are it’s erroneous.

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Niners couldn’t lock down RB Jewel Hampton to a futures contract.
    He left the team without signing.
    Hampton most likely doesn’t like his position in the RB pecking order on the Niner roster.
    Futures contracts were inked by
    “Tackle Carter Bykowski, a seventh-round draft pick in 2013, was among the players who signed new deals. The others are wide receivers Chuck Jacobs and Devon Wylie, tackle Al Netter, nose tackle Mike Purcell and defensive back Dax Swanson.”

  40. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Senior Bowl QBs Taj Boyd, Derek Carr, David Fales, Steven Morris
    and Logan Thomas.

    Taj Boyd might have thrown one of the most pathetic passes of all time trying to do too much and making a bad play into the worst possible play.

  41. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit/Chuck, there’s a kid from Saginaw Valley St. that I might have mentioned already.
    WR Jeff Janis – 6’2-1/4″ 212 4.36
    Tall and fast but, very lanky.

    Small school guys are always worthy of a look.
    He’s playing in the Senior Bowl too.
    Huge wingspan though.

  42. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We have to contend with the Seahawks Secondary of course.
    We have to be thinking about stronger and taller options I’d guess?
    Hoffman, Matthews and Janis will all be playing in the Senior Bowl.
    All have height and big wingspans.

    Good chance to see how they fair in a Scouting environment.

  43. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Speaking of the Senior Bowl –
    CB Aaron Colvin from OK tore an ACL during practice there.

    He was a highly regarded prospect coming into the process.
    He’s now a bargain basement option.
    He was carrying a Rd 2-3 grade before this injury occurred.

    We have Picks……

  44. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    NJ

    Hoffman is listed as a 5th to 6th rounder due to injuries and strength issues. He had a better earlier college career and then tailed off. He’s one of those guys that you take a flyer on in the 6th or 7th round.
    Jeff Janis is projected as a 4th rounder. His performance during the practice week and in the Senior Bowl game will determine his draft position. Small school competition means there are some mediocre opponents that you can compile stats on.For instance he might have 10 catches and 180 yds and 4 TDs against Hillsdale. Not exactly NFL quality opposition.
    If he peaks Baalke’s interest they’ll bring him in for a workout.

  45. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I would definitely consider taking Colvin as a “future” (bonus points if you’re ancient enough to get that reference). Good CBs are hard to find and you never have enough; and we have another boatload of picks this year so we can afford to use one or two on long range planning. Colvin had been looking like the best DB at the Senior Bowl practices before he got hurt.

  46. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    As of right now, I believe we have five extra choices in the draft – a second round pick from KC for Alex, Tennessee’s 3rd round pick as part of a draft day trade of picks last year, and three 7th rounders – from Miami (for Colin Jones), New Orleans (for Parys Haralson) and Indianapolis (for Cam Johnson). That does not include any compensatory picks we might get for free agents lost last off-season. Those, and the final draft order, will be announced in April. The draft begins on April 24 this year.

  47. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Actually this year’s draft is May 8-10 due to the Easter Pageant
    scheduled for Radio Music Hall which created a conflict.
    The Easter bunny won out over Goodell.
    The Niners draft 30th because of their record and how they finished in the NFC Championship Game.

  48. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The extended forecast for the Super Bowl is in the next 10 days
    the high temp for New Jersey will not get above freezing.
    Nothing like paying $1500 for a ticket and freezing your butt off
    and having to wait in long lines to catch public transportation to and from the stadium, then waiting in another long line to get through security.
    Yesterday 3000 flights were cancelled in the East due to bad weather. This might be a disaster if people are unable to get to New York in time to spend their money.
    The teaching moment might be in cold weather at least play the game in a dome.
    There are just so many things that can go wrong here and it’s all on the commish.

  49. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks, bullit – you’re right about the date, I had not seen the change.

    So I think we have the 30th pick, then I think the 56th (24th in round 2, from KC for Alex), then the 61st (our own 2nd round pick). In the third round, we have the Titans’ pick (if I understand the rotation, I think it’s 13 in the round, which is 77th overall), then our own 3rd pick (94th overall). After that, we have picks in rounds 4 through 6, and four picks in round seven, pending whatever happens with compensatory picks.

    So we have plenty of picks to address needs, take a long range flyer or two, and trade around if we choose to.

  50. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Eric Wright had a future with the Niners.
    After they re-signed Cox something happened and he ended up in
    Fangio’s doghouse. The ultimate sleight was being inactive for the Championship game when they decided to go with rookie FA Morris.
    Not sure if Wright could ever shake some of his off field issues.
    It seems Wright will be going elsewhere next year.

  51. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    NJ, I like Odell Beckham because he has size and speed. The other guys not named Watkins have one or the other. There’s that Fresno St kid I can’t reemember the name of (Adams?), and a lot of others under the radar.

    Ginn was good his 1st 2 years as KR/PR. He tailed off badly as a PR by the end of 2012. Why did we let him walk if he was such a good player, Bullitt? It certainly wasn’t his WR numbers. And he was avoiding contact on PRs.

  52. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    He sucked, in other words. He followed the paath of Allen Rossum. Good for a while, then decent, then he fell off the table.

    Any 15 people here will tell you the same thing, Bullitt.

  53. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Senior Bowl practices are on NFL Network.
    Impressive OT from Michigan is Michael Schofield 6-4 303 lbs.
    Projected as a 5th rounder. He created a buzz in the practice
    as Michigan OT Lewan was getting all the attention
    Also impressive Tyler Larsen C Utah State 6-4 317 lbs.
    He held his own against Hageman and others and is projected as a 5th rounder.
    Because of over 100 underclassmen declaring this is going to be a very deep draft with value in the middle rounds.

  54. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    Do you ever check before you start flapping your gums?
    Ginn had a 20 yd punt return against Atlanta in the NFC Championship Game
    In the Super Bowl you seem to have forgotten his big 32 yd punt return taking it deep into the Ravens side of the field.

    Ginn walked because he wanted to play more WR and Harbaugh wouldn’t commit the money or the chance.
    Like I said you give out so much wrong info (perhaps you have a faulty memory or are getting senile?)
    I hate to keep correcting you and embarrassing you daily but facts are facts.

  55. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    No one here was missing Ginn, including you, when he left. His value as a WR was kaput, as a KR minimal. Hence the earthshaking 1 year 1 mill. deal he got from Carol.

    Funny thing is you seem to live for the ‘gotcha’ momnts you profess to get. Yeah, so embarrassing. Oooh, Got me, Bullitt! Sorry your life is posting hyperbolic bullshit and ‘correcting’ others when opinions differ, but have at it skippy.

    I’m looking forward to validating your pathetic existence in the future.

  56. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    A CB that’s getting a lot of attention at the Senior Bowl is Keith McGill CB Utah 6-3 214 lbs who can play press corner.
    Right now projected as a 3rd rounder.
    A NFL scout said he was one of the biggest corners he ever saw
    who can cover.
    Niners can get a lot of impact players in rounds 3-5.

  57. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    In Ginn’s last game with the Niners on the biggest stage
    Chuck thinks he failed (at least in Chuck’s mind).
    This isn’t gotcha but when you’re wrong you need to man up instead of being in a state of denial.
    In 2013 Kyle Williams did absolutely nothing returning punts making more fair catches than returns.
    To jog your memory Ginn set up a TD that was key to the Niner’s closing the score.

  61. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Niners announced 13 players have signed futures contracts including Jewel Hampton after all. Some new names added.
    “The 49ers announced Wednesday they have signed QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, T Carter Bykowski, S DJ Campbell, RB Jewel Hampton, WR Chuck Jacobs, G Al Netter, NT Mike Purcell, WR David Reed, WR DeMarco Sampson, P Colton Schmidt, CB Dax Swanson, DT Christian Tupou, WR Devon Wylie to Reserve/Future contracts”

    Chuck

    You always have this habit of speaking for everyone with the presumption that you know what everyone is thinking.
    Sadly for you you’re not even close.
    Looking at the present where is KW? He’s not with the Niners.
    He had his chances and squandered his opportunity.
    I always thought KW was error prone and he was always going to fumble again.
    To be a punt returner you have to be fearless. KW did not have that mentality.

  63. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit , I did like C Travis Swanson and Tyler Larsen just from bio info I’ve read.

    A CB I’m pretty impressed with is Ross Cockrell from Duke.
    No doubt we’re going after DBs from this Class.
    All about where to slot them and get them selected.

    As for WRs Hoffman and Janis, that’s my thinking as well.
    Can they compete with the better DBs and, how cheaply can you get them if interested?

    Easy for us to read Bio’s and watch highlight clips.

    Money is paid to the Scouts to project them to the Pro level.
    Then, more money is paid to the GM, to secure the talent via Draft slotting.
    Fun stuff for me to stay busy with though.

    Not sure if I posted it here or, with Chuck but, Larry Webster the DE from Bloomsburg is intriguing.
    Tall kid at 6’7″ but playing DE at 240.
    Has a solid basketball background from what I’ve read.

    Could he be a candidate to go to TE, ala Jimmy Graham?

    Bullit –
    I’d consider CBs Aaron Colvin and EJ Gaines as SS candidates in our system.
    Colvin going down would obviously be a wait and see next year candidate however, ala Lattimore.

    Both guys tackle well and, possess that necessary mentality to go all out in coverage.

    The SS Class in general isn’t strong, perhaps a conversion-type approach there?
