Does anyone know where Mercilus is at? He going to play Thurs?
I'm not so sure about that at this point. Brown is 3rd on the depth chart behind Jameel McClain a six year vet and 2nd year player Josh Bynes. I've heard some less than rave reviews on his performance so far and appears to be somewhat validated by his position on the depth chart.

All that aside though I agree that Cush needs to get back to himself quickly and Mays learns how to tackle at least until we can find Sharpton!

Remember Sio Moore was the guy I tabbed for the Texans as he's an all-around LB who can play either inside or outside; he can rush and he can cover.

The Raiders took him in the third and the words out of their training camp is that he has been making good impressions.
He's currently first on their depth chart and is slated to start at OLB in their 4-3.

Speaks more on their depth at the position to me. Ravens board for the most part they all love Brown, his ability in pass coverage and dont expect him to be coming off the bench for long.

The 49ers are talented on defense, and deep.

They’re now hoping to turn some of that depth into something else.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers are shopping outside linebacker Parys Haralson in trade talks.

Interesting but what do you give up for him? Does he start here? Reed and Mercilus are the annointed ones and so you're getting him for depth right? Where do you willingly get thinner or are you thinking draft picks?

Niners boards are thinking a 5th or 6th rd draft pick could do it. And IMO Mercilus hasn't really earned anything yet since he has been injured going on close to a month now.

I think Reed has earned his spot , he produced his rookie year and even with the lower numbers last season he played well ...


Mercilus showed a little promise last season in a limited role ... but Montgomery & T.Williams should be closer to being cut than handed playing time. (no , they wont be cut but they have been outplayed by one and possibly two UDFA's in Jefferson & Tuggle.

That's really cheap for a better than average player.

Quote:
The 49ers receive a conditional seventh-round pick as compensation, the Sacramento Bee reported. If Haralson does not make the team, the 49ers will receive no compensation.

Haralson, 29, who is entering his eighth NFL season is in the final year of his contract. He is schedule to make $1.15 million, a salary the 49ers negotiated down from $2.67 million in the offseason.
Conditional 7th and $1.15M? Where the hell was the Texans offer?

Default Re: The OLBs

I want to see Trevardo in a situation where everyone knows a pass is coming. I want to see if he can use that speed to get around blocks and pressure/get to the QB.

That's the ONLY hesitation I'd have with letting him go. That's the only chance he has at helping this team this year. Being a demon on pass rush downs.

Otherwise he's a complete waste of a roster spot that could go to someone that actually can play.

I've never see an NFL defensive player get rag dolled like Trevardo has. I mean, I've seen DB's stand up to olinemen better.

Default Re: The OLBs

It looks like our OLB's are: Reed, Mercilus, Braman, Montgomery & Jackson.

Can someone clarify, is it Reed on the strong side and Mercilus on the weak side? I'm assuming Jackson plays behind Mercilus. Is this correct? Which side does Montgomery play? Behind Reed? How about Braman? Which side is he projected to?

Mercilus is unproven and missed time in training camp and the preseason games. This side of the ball is a huge question mark.

Of this group of LB's, Braman has the most experience possibly for this second position. In the Dallas game he seemed to drop into coverage fairly well and on plays to the opposite side, took proper angles to help out down field if necessary. At the POA he made tackles but it seemed after giving up 3 or 4 yards.

Now that we know the players, how do you see this position settling out.

Outside linebackers are Brooks Reed, Whitney Mercilus, Brian Braman, Sam Montgomery, Willie Jefferson with Justin Tuggle kind of a "swing" ILB/OLB.
