Lap Falling Syndrome

Well, it’s almost here. After the Super Bowl and the Presidential Election, the NFL Draft is probably the third most overhyped event in America.

Apparently, the 49ers are going to take a linebacker, a cornerback, an offensive lineman, or trade down from the number 9 pick. After that, who knows?

I doubt John Lynch will be drafting anybody who failed a drug test at the Combine or got sent home for threatening a hospital worker, though. Making the same mistake twice was never an issue for former GM Trent Baalke, who was a serial repeat offender during his tenure. But Lynch is not likely to be that dumb.

The pre-draft news has been dominated by the four or five quarterbacks who are likely to be picked in the first round, but New Orleans HC Sean Payton thinks none of them are likely to become elite QBs, except maybe for Sam Darnold. I can’t keep these guys straight, probably from complete inattention to detail, but Payton should know, right?

Maybe. He had Drew Brees fall in his lap, which is what made him worth listening to. Just like Bill Belichick had Tom Brady fall in his lap. And some say Joe Montana fell into Bill Walsh‘s lap, too, since he reportedly wanted Phil “Gag Me” Simms instead. Great players falling into your lap has an inordinate effect on the history of the NFL I’m tempted to surmise.

Of course, this would take quite a bit of luster off the fellows holding down the 32 GM jobs around the league, so the NFL has blackballed any effort to point this out. They’d probably blackball me, too, but I have cleverly kept this blog insignificant and powerless for its duration on the web, so far under the radar that not even the Russians have noticed its presence.

So enjoy finding the non-fake TRUTH, still languishing harmlessly in various tiny pot holes around the globe, as it falls into your lap ever so quietly and fortuitously.

    It was Steve Dils that Walsh coveted over Montana

    The draft is about luck and who happens to fall to you when it’s your turn. Let’s hope the QB feeding frenzy is enought to generate one of the big three (Barkley, Chubb or Nelson) to fall to the Niners, or there’s always one team that defies all convention and selcts a suprise jaw dropping player.

  2. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Before the 1979 NFL Draft, new San Francisco 49ers head coach Bill Walsh flew to Morehead State with assistant coach Sam Wyche to work out Simms. Walsh was so impressed that he planned to draft Simms in the third round, preferring him over the quarterback they ultimately took, Joe Montana of Notre Dame. But the New York Giants decided to make Simms their first round pick (seventh overall) to the surprise of many.”

    “there’s always one team that defies all convention and selcts a suprise jaw dropping player.” That would be the Raiders, or Miami, or the Jets. I wonder who it will be this year. No matter, just glad Baalky isn’t here.

  4. robNo Gravatar says:

    • The San Francisco 49ers will have Chewbacca, stormtroopers, and R2D2 announce picks; by that point, Chewbacca himself ought to be a decent late-round pickup.

  5. Uncle ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    . . . and NoCheer still pines for Teflon Mike. Will some things never change? And NoCheer you do understand that drafts take a while to discern if they are good or not. 3 years in, Baalke was seen as a solid drafter and genius slot manipulator. He generated deals that got the Niners a lot of draft choices over the years.

    2 years in to the 2011 draft, we had a rookie of the year candidate in Aldon Smith and a QB that brought us to a Super Bowl and multiple playoff wins. Regardless of if Kappy was Harbaugh’s guy, that was Baalke’s high water mark. Certainly people here recognized that McCloughan was a great draft guy, but HE sealed his fate here. As he did in Seattle. His demons got him walked out of the building in both SF and Seattle. You act like the fans got Scotty fired. Or the folks here.

    I’m never sure what your point is. That we are all idiots, and you have the answers? That if we stuck with Teflon Mike, we’d have 3 more rings? What is your point?

  6. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    All the stories about drafting Montana are interesting and maybe even have some truth hidden in them but the way Bill Walsh tells it, Sam Wyche had set up meetings to work out fourteen QB prospects they were targeting for a mid-round pick to backup DeBerg.

    When he met with Simms and worked out with him he thought he would be the guy but also figured other teams had interest in him.

    Once he finally met with Montana, “When I saw Joe, I knew immediately he was our man.” he was first in the draft plans.

    Walsh says in doing their research they figured Joe would not be taken before the fifth round so that may be the reason he would be considering other QBs since all they had was DeBerg.

  7. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “GM John Lynch says if it’s proven Reuben Foster hit the alleged victim he will not be on the 49ers.”

    Probably good news for Foster since it appears there’s no witnesses or video that would provide “proof.” Lynch is covering his ass while trying to sound like he’s got principles. He’s learning the GM job pretty quickly.

  8. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Yes, Lynch has picked up the mealy-mouthed public statement game pretty quickly, or maybe he’s always had the knack.

    I guess he’s banking on the girl suffering from spontaneous-exploding eardrums and landing herself in the hospital bouncing off walls and pavement for fun.

    You either take a stand against domestic violence or use it as a PR stunt. Lynch/York/Shanahan, you all suck.

    York Jr and Lynch walk by a woman getting beat up on the street by a lowlife punk thug and look the other way ignoring the woman’s pleas for help.

    “Did you see that?” York Jr asks.
    “Yeah, but he was probably a football player so it’s okay.” replies Lynch.
    “Yeah, unless there’s proof!” jokes York, as they erupt in laughter at how smart they think themselves.

  9. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe she got a little to exuberant with a Q-tip. Maybe she’s had a perforated eardrum for awhile. Maybe someone else did it and she figures blaming Reuben is the way to go. Lynch was an all-pro football player for a long time. He knows the game. He probably learned a great deal about being PC while announcing. Being the front-man for a Professional football team is probably not an easy job to learn. And, as far as I am concerned he and KS are the best thing to happen to the Niners for years.

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Money might have talked here

    In a civil trial situation the winner would get monetary compensation for pain and suffering. Perhaps Foster’s legal team amde her a financial offer she couldn’t refuse.

  11. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Your Honor…. It’s not clear from the Police reports, regarding ‘dragged her down the stairs’ adds up in terms of relative pressure drop?

    Depending on altitude, too quick a descent in a non-pressurized environment could become an issue relative to rupturing an eardrum.
    Also unclear Your Honor, Hit in the head 8-10X or, hit her head 8-10X during descent?

    Quite the scientific conundrum, without video coverage on final approach Counselor.

    Prosecution vehemently objects Your Honor!

    The Defense rests Your Honor.

  12. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Jimmy and the receivers are working offsite on their own so they are developing chemistry and will continue to meet until they start practicing.

    No coaches but just a QB and his receiving corps which is a great sign.

    36 hours until some guy falls in our lap.

    Draft questions

    Is Minkah Fitzpatrick the next Ronnie Lott? Can excel both at CB and at Safety. Can he be Lurk 2.0?

    Can Roquan Smith be better than Ruben Foster? Play at a Niner LB level olf Willis/Bowman?

    Will Lynch look to bolster interior Oline first or draft to look for a successor to Staley?

  18. robNo Gravatar says:

    “John Lynch says 49ers have first-round grades on 30 players in this draft”

    I agree , trade back is a good option !

    49ers webzone is saying MIKE MCGLINCHEY might be our pick at 9 ! not a bad idea ! maybe start him at G until Staley retires ?

  19. robNo Gravatar says:

    Draft day tomorrow

    I hope at least three QB’s go early !

    My take is that she sat down with her lawyer and they came up with the one story that could help him get off and then worked backwards to establish it. She must have gotten enough so that even if the DA goes after her for making false charges it won’t matter to her in the long run and of course with this result it’s less likely to ruin Foster’s career.

    But here is where open warfare is starting.

    The reaction on this blog didn’t suprised me one bit.Alot of people read this blog but it’s basically the same five turds who own the comment section so no one else really comments .They know all things of life and football (just ask them)
    Plus it’s a Bay Area blog and reminds me why myself and tons of other people have left that 3rd world country they call the Bay Area
    Then you got your guys like Razor queefer who is literally on here 24 hours a day kissing Grants heini spewing stats and dumb poems talking this prospect this and that yet the dude is literally wrong every single time,yet day after day he’s on here with his cocky attitude being wrong……again
    Then Ribico who is basically a uc berkley Fidel Castro who just whines about racism and un fair this un fair that social justice warrior
    Every once in a while guys like Tom D and a few other posters will put some cool links or good info but otherwise it’s just five nerds in a circle jerk kissing each other’s rears

    “Good answer. I like the way you think. I’m gonna be watching you”

  25. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s see if a team is willing to trade up for #9 and what kind of deal Lynch can swing if one of the Joshes or Mayfield slides to #9.

    If there is no action and they stay put my choices would Roquan Smith, Fitzpatrick or Edmunds.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like Santa Clara DA has no case if they choose to prosecute Foster

    From ESPN

    “The statement from San Jose attorney Stephanie Rickard, who identified her client in the statement as 28-year-old Elissa Ennis, said Ennis suffered her injuries as the result of a fight with another woman and there is video documentation of that fight.”

    “[Foster] did not strike her, injure her or threaten her,” Rickard said.
    According to the statement, Foster attempted to end their relationship after learning of the fight between Ennis and another woman.”
    “She was extremely upset and told him if he broke up with her, she would ‘trash his career,'” Rickard said.
    Rickard said that when Ennis realized what she had done, she attempted to go back to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office in an effort to recant her original statements blaming Foster for her injuries.”

    Key words here is there is video evidence of her fight with this other woman which has not been revealed before the attorney’s statement. This would be the “Lynch pin” why Niners didn’t cut Foster
    immediately. Facts matter.

  27. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Quite convoluted to me Bullit –
    Can’t help but wonder if the check cleared before the Cat Fight Video was produced?
    Let’s hope Foster learned a lesson if nothing else.

  28. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    I hope that Foster realizes he needs to grow up and was “scared straight”.

    Foster needs to be a good citizen going forward. Unless something else is uncovered there should be minimal discipline from the NFL although Foster might be on probation in their eyes too.

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If one of the big 4 QBs are still there at #9 I hope the Niners can strike a deal and move down.

    Bills can swap their pick at #12 and their second round pick at %53 to move up. They can also offer a package of the first round pick at #22 and two second rounders at #53 and #56. The latter would give SF a later first round pick and 3 second rounders which might be useful in a very deep draft.

    Let’s see how creative John Lynch might ber this time around.

  30. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Knowing what you know today about Ruben Foster would you trade him to the Raiduhs if they offered you their first rounder at #10 straight up
    for Foster leaving you consecutive #1 picks with a shot at giving you Roquan Smith and either Fitzpatrick or Edmunds?

  31. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I’m in for deals with Buffalo/Miami if Minkah and Nelson are gone.
    Pats could interest me after that, simply to close the gap between 9 & 59.
    Should be interesting starting with Barkley.

    If Browns gamble on him at 1 I think NYG deal back, possibly with Browns @ 4?
    Gonna be unpredictable.

  32. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Only benefit with dealing Foster is his price tag compared to this year’s cost to Gruden.

    Baggage and risks remain.
    Suspension potential not withstanding.
    Damaged goods IMO.
    He’s toxic and, likely un-Tradeable.
    I’d throw him into any deal, with anyone, who’s willing to pay him quite frankly.
    He’s unstable IMO.

    WAY too much like Aldon at this point.

  33. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:


    Payoffs, did you say payoffs! As soon as the attorney was hired the back-room deal was facilitated.

    In a law firm, money is fungible. Attorney-client privilege helps to keep the money flow shielded in the dark recesses of their books.

    The black hole pretty much a sure thing. Suing a law firm, are you kidding me. This is not the deep state versus Trump.

    Would not surprise me if Jed’s dough eventually finds the pockets of the DA, the law firm, the media, and legal watchdogs. He needs to preserve the ability to influence in the Democrat machine-state.

  34. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Money talks Bakkentom.
    Hence corruption and manipulation of The System.

  35. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe put a lid on the excitement? Lots of 1st Rd QB’s but no Andrew Luck or Carson Wentz among them.

    Would be happy for a trade down to net us a 2nd at the top of the round. Draft deep in IOL, LB, CB, and red-zone’ish WR. No doubt there will be quality that drops in all those position groups. Discipline with draft board is key. 2nd round poaching is the battleground.

  36. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Already envious of IND with all their high 2nd’s. CLE then IND will have the best draft class imo.

    CLE has Todd Haley OC evaluating the draftable QB’s. DEN is set with Case Keenum and a late developing Paxton Lynch. QB trade ups probably at #4, #5, #6. We screwed the pooch by going 5-0.

    How much is Armstead worth tonight and tomorrow. Trent Brown trade needs to be reserved for pick of McGlinchey, Kolton Miller, and Tyrell Crosby. Conor Williams gone by late 1st.

  37. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    I haven’t bought a Niner jersey since Board and Solomon so I think this year I am gonna get me a Foster. It sounds as though very few people have run across a low-down-dirty woman. They are around.

  38. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    When the DA said they would prosecute Foster without the victim’s cooperation and formally charged him after investigating the incident for two months I guess the video proving Foster’s innocence was still being “edited” and its existence completely unknown to all involved but Lynch who thought better of informing the local LEOs.

    The police should add a new chapter to their policy and procedures manual when DV involves a pro football player. Just hand out payoff application forms to all involved and get the hell out. No need wasting time trying to gather facts or interview witnesses.

    All the female victims of the Clintons are “low-down-dirty woman” types, too. It’s more than a little disturbing how rules/laws/sentiment change with the weather.

  39. robNo Gravatar says:

    You know what bothered me about the reuben foster case ? He punched her 8 to 10 times . she went out and found a cop and reported it

  40. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    Rob- Domestic violence cases are sometimes hard to read because at the time everyone is in a rage. And, reason and motives can get skewed real quick. I have seen a couple of bad ones and in both of them someone got stabbed and it was the women doing the stabbing. So I am not as quick as some to blame the dude.

  41. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Scot McCloughan is now a Browns’ adviser, so maybe they have a decent chance of at last not blowing the draft.

  42. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    CLE got rid of Hogan QB and Kessler QB and traded away Kizer QB. Traded #65 for bridge QB Tyrod Taylor. Virtual lock #1 is QB.

    CLE lost Joe Thomas LT to retirement. Traded Danny Shelton NT.

    So QB at #1 is a lock. LT in 2nd round. Their OL is solid otherwise. Probably go big on DB’s.

    They have #1, #4, #33, #35, #64, and no 3rd’s after the TT trade.

    At #4 they may get a deal they cannot refuse. Otherwise Chubb or Barkley. Carlos Hyde cannot figure out pass pro. Ogbah can be traded away. Or trade down #4 and get Minkah plus CB’s.

  43. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    First surprise of the draft

    Mayfield picked #1. Can you say Johnny Football?

  44. robNo Gravatar says:

    jets trade up for a QB good news for us

  45. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    NFL Network has said Myfield’s NFL comparable is Jeff Garcia.


  46. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Will CHI trade down. How bad is Rosen wanted?

  47. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Roquan Smith 4.51 40 is Patrick Willis speed.

  48. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Rumor is Trent Brown for DEN 2nd Rd pick. DO IT unless quality OT picks are gone.

  49. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    McGlinchey so TB is traded tonight. Yeah baby.

  50. robNo Gravatar says:

    McGlinchey best OT in this draft ! nice pick !

  51. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Christian Okoye at Tampa Bay, did I hear that right.

  52. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Raiduhs trade back 5 places.
    Not sure what they got for their trouble was worth it.
    They got back a 3rd rd pick and a 5th rd pick for their trouble.

    Seems like they could’ve gotten more.

  53. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    OAK gets Kolton Miller, overdrafted?

    So CLE overdrafted at both #1 and #4, now OAK at #15.

    Wow. Keim/Wilks saved their jobs tonight. Kudos to them.

    Davenport before Landry, big risk by NO.

  54. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Martavis Bryant traded to OAK for a 3rd RD pick. So OAK traded down for Kolton Miller, Martavis Bryant, and a 5th RD pick.

    Not bad. An upgrade from Crabtree?

  55. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Ragnow and Price taken back to back. We need the Trent Brown trade otherwise it is Cooper and Tomlinson/Garnett.

  56. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    I think we got stuck. Poor if any trade down options.

    They could do this because they have good confidence in Cooper and Garnett. They are confident that Trent Brown will get them a 2nd. By itself or moving one of the next 3 picks to the top of the 2nd.

    My hope at least.

  57. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Matavius Bryant had one season where he was suspended 4 games for failing a drug test and then a whole season for skipping mandatory drug tests.

    Lots of risk and potential disaster for Raiduhs. I would not have given away a third round pick for a headache.

    In 3 seasons with the Raiduhs Crabtree had 25000 plus yds and 25 TDs
    numbers which Bryant hasn’t come close to achieving. Just not seeing how this is as good deal when the next suspension will be a minimal of 6 games.

  58. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Ok with McGlinchey as they decided to address Staley’s eventual replacement.

    Raiduhs really wanted McGlinchey so coin flip was significant.

  59. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    FA saved our ass. Attachou (sp!) and Cooper and Toomer saved us from an underwhelming draft.

    Top 3 ILB gone. Top 4 OG gone.

    Foster probably back this year. Garnett and Joe Williams back. Two CB’s in next 3 picks?

    This is your new 49ers. Courtland Sutton and Harold Landry still out there.

  60. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    My wish list if they are on the board when the 2nd round pick rolls around and perhaps 3rd round.

    Nick Chubb RB, Mike Gesicki TE, Brian O’Neill OT, Braden Smith OG, Josey Jowell LB and Malik Jefferson LB

  61. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Oops! My comment on Crabtree should read 2500+ yds. Had one too many zeros

  62. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    We’ll see: “”Patriots, 49ers talking trade for Trent Brown.”

  63. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    After Jimmy G got here it kind smoothed over how bad our Oline was. I just remember yelling that the #1 priority was to fix our Oline when CJ was getting creamed. It’s not a very interesting pick but for year 2 of a rebuild it probably was a smart one.

  64. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “49ers are trading OT Trent Brown and pick number 143 overall to the New England Patriots in exchange for pick number 95 overall. The deal is pending a physical.”

  65. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like a salary dump.

  66. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Maiocco reports physical done, deal completed Skeebs.
    We add a 3rd tonight.
    NICE…. 😀

  67. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Trent was a 7th RDer.
    Nice deal for us.

  68. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Short term, McGlinchey won’t be the pass blocker in 2018 that Brown was. He’ll be better at run blocking. Long term, we’ll see, but Brown almost certainly was going to leave after this year, and his weight issues make him another high risk guy down the line. So this pick solidifies things in 2019 and beyond.

    The buzz I’ve heard is also that McGlinchey is supposedly a high character guy. After the Foster fiasco, Lynch may be loathe to take any chances this year, at least with his early picks. Learning from one’s mistakes is important.

    Interested to see how he plays it with the 2nd and three thirds. I think we still have enough holes that we should take four guys (G, LB, Edge, WR?). But we have the picks to move up some too if they fall in love with a guy.

  69. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    It’s entirely possible that Staley will be the ONLY returning starter on the O-line this year. That will be a little scary. Cohesion means at least as much as talent up front. We may have some serious growing pains until people mesh. I’ll be holding my breath at least through the middle of the season. And yes, it HAS to be done, to fix last year’s mess. Still, it could look ugly early on. Hopefully not enough to get Garoppolo or someone else hurt.

  70. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    I see a move to use 1 of the 3’s to move up in RD2 tonight?
    See what comes…

  71. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Wow. Trent Brown heavily discounted (recovery from labrum surgery in play, FA after the season). BB got himself a starting tackle on the cheap.

    DEN and IND no real interest in TB? Looks like NE was the only bidder. Running attack, screens, and play action will thrive both left and right now.

    Trade up for Josh Jackson?

  72. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    I see OG in the mix tonight
    CB WR too
    See what comes….

  73. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Tartt extended 2yrs.

  74. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    That’s kinda different, a Baalky pick they actually like.

  75. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NJ, that makes Tartt tradeable at full value. Too bad it was not done with Trent Brown. FO Phuckup?

    At minimum TB should have been 2nd Rd value. Cannot blame BB. He can lose him at end of season.

  76. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Are we going to be crying in our cornflakes tomorrow morning.

    IND has #36, #37, and #49. They are looking for exactly what we are, RG and big WR.

  77. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Deal Garnett tonight?

  78. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Nice call by Maiocco: “I fully expect the Patriots to deal pick No. 43, which originally belonged to the 49ers, so people will not be able to track it as a straight-up Player X for Jimmy Garoppolo trade.”

    And so they did.

  79. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    #44 TRADE UP

  80. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t get it. #59 and #74 for another little WR. Now GB gets Josh Jackson. This is turning into a downer. BOO

  81. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    We did not address primary needs in this draft. OG, edge, CB so I guess they feel really good about the FA at each position.

    Edge class is quite a bit better in 2019 so I can understand. Josh Jackson and Isiah Oliver were there at #44.

    In draft evals we will be in the bottom quarter.


  82. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Per Joe Fann “John Lynch thinks that Tarvarious Moore can play CB in the NFL. The #49ers are going to give him a shot there.”

    Moore ran a 4.32 at his Pro day. Looks like he has nose for the ball and he is a “sleeper” that flew under radar

  83. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “John Lynch was asked straight-up about a Trent Brown trade Thurs evening. A day later, after the 49ers deal with Patriots, he told the truth: “Yeah, my fingers were crossed last night when I was talking to you. I did say, ‘Never say never.’ We had (already) agreed in principle.”

    A liar who admits he’s a liar. Somewhat refreshing.

  84. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Then again, if reporters didn’t ask questions that no GM in his right mind could possibly answer truthfully, lying wouldn’t be necessary.

  85. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Oh, oh. Looks like Lynch let Baalke into the room for this pick. A torn ACL guy.

  86. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Rams trade Ram WR Tavon Austin to Cowgurls for a 6th round pick.

    Austin was a top ten pick who never made an impact and now can be labelled “BUST’ Austin just never fit in and was never put into situations that featured what he could do best.

  87. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    And now a safety with an Achilles tear. We’ve drafted two guys who will be on IR all year.

    They say he was cleared before the combine, so we shall see.

  89. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    One UDFA signee by Niners is Connor Wentz TE North Dakota St
    Does he have a famous relative that plays QB?
    Other signings WR Deontez Alexander Franklin College, Andrew Marshall, OL Valdosta St, Jamar McGloster OT Syracuse, Jeffery Wilson RB North Texas,Corey Griffin DB GA Tech, Emanuel Mosley CB Tennesseee and Ross Dwilley TE Univ Sandiego.

    There are sure to be more

    Niners signed Tavarus McFadden DB Fla St as a Priority FA.

    Also Patrick Chouja DE Nevada and Alan Knott C So Carolina have been signed

    Rookie Minicamp is scheduled for the coming Fri/Sat

    I thought we picked up way to many current and prior ACL guys today. Big gamble.

  93. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Lynch’s luck with the walking wounded had better be a lot better than Baalke’s was, or the comparisons are going to be thrown at him hard.

  94. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    add WR Steven Dunbar Houston to signed undrafted FA list.

  95. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Some mock drafts had McFadden as a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
    He ran a horrible 4.67 at the combine which is most likely why he went undrafted. Could be a big addition considering he’s an undrafted FA
