    Vikes got him. Obviously our crack staff thinks Tate is all we need.

    The Texans need another back in camp. But, I'd look for a Slaton type as insurance. There's not enough difference in what Tate and Blount bring, in terms of running style.

    Won't be surprised if they get a guy but Jeremiah Johnson should be healthy so we might be set.

    As of now we have Tate, Slaton, Foster, Moats, Johnson & Henry


    Do you think they bring in someone else?

    The 49ers ain`t messing around this year! They will be a real hard knocks football team...

    I think they, the Seahawks and maybe even the Raiders had the best draft.

    I had to do a double take when I saw the Raiders and good draft, but I have to agree. They definitely did a lot better than years past, and Bruce Campbell in the 4th was great value.

    Did the Raiders have a good draft, or was it just so shocking that crazy Al didn't completely blow it that it seems that way? :bguitar:

    I said it before day three, the 49 ers are building that team the right way. They are going to be a bad ass team real soon. I sure as hell hope we dont have to play them in the next few years. I am very envious of them.

    This guy is a peice of trash, and isn't worth the trouble he'll bring. No thanks.

    Would've been nice to have a back that can punch it in.

    Yep

    I'm interested in seeing what A. Smith can do behind the revamped OL.

    Gore should be a FF stud.

    Sad thing about this is we could of had Blount with a 7th rounder if the boise state inccident never happened this guy would of been a 1st rounder for sure.

    Nah, I think he was ranked as a mid-round player before going mental.

    And there were already red-flags about the guy because of issues he had with his coaches.
