The bad news? NFL Network analyst Charlie Casserly and Brian Billick decided on Thursday that Alex Smith is not good enough to play quarterback in the NFL, not to mention home of the 49 head coach Jim Harbaugh in 2011. Insiders do not think that the selection of former Niners' first sentence could save his career, left the club a passer-by a group of free agents and mediocre cast to find compromise.
Good news? Four of the most respected analysts of the NFL Draft now expect that the upper corner in the draft for the 49ers in selected seventh overall in the first round available. Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay of ESPN and much anticipated LSU star Patrick Peterson be there when the No. 49 7 pick in the first round.
Wait. The bad news links back to the good news because a project is the selection of experts from the 49's Blaine Gabbert Missouri No. 7 at Quart. This would reduce the pressure on the club to find a veteran starter to bring the long-term and Gabbert, most likely on the fast track to open either as owner or comfortable in the role at some point in 2011.
Kiper has mentioned the corner of former LSU Peterson, that No. 1 as the best player in the draft this year in the NFL.
Peterson is a 219-pound had a 4.34 40 yard dash for threshing NFL Scouting. Not only the top cornerback in the closure of the project considered, but it is a gifted kick returner.
Rob rank, CBSSports.com and SI.com 's Don Banks Peterson also went to the 49ers at No. 7 in general.
The project analyst universally respected not only the 49's under Peterson NFL.com 's Pat Kirwan. Kirwan thinks may 49, the fourth Missouri Gabbertand write in the first round.
A recent reorganization, as the teams predict the top six teams from the results of four selected experts, that the No. 1 corner, Peterson, Niners in the fall.
Kirwan, however, disagree with his belief that Gabbert will be at the top of the Carolina Panthers.
Kiper and banks are the Panthers choose Gabbert No. 1 ranking to Auburn, Heisman Trophy quarterback Cam Newton won on the first general meeting. Kirwan McShay and see the Panthers at defensive lineman Marcel Dureus Alabama.
The Panthers fought quarterback Jimmy Clausen in the draft last year and the former Notre Dame star is selected, when forced into the starting lineup.
However, the presence of Caroline Kiper Clausen to write him how to play the Panthers Gabbert, but never with them.
I hope that all the work arrangement was developed to a rookie salary scale that the massive bonus of better ways to create the facilitating trade and draft limits, said Kiper. It is logical that Caroline could project one of the best quarterbacks and options of free trade, in essence, with the words: So a shot of your choice to ensure you talk to us.
