Very nice value pick who has great coverage skills. I love this pick. With this I would say either LVE or Smiths time is coming to an end


Joe Thomas replacement/upgrade.

Glad they’re getting back on track after the puzzling Nahshon Wright pick in the 3rd.

This was a great pick, now we need a good offensive tackle or guard


We’re making a comeback. Great value in the 4th rd. Solid LB.


With a shady 3rd rd and another LB that makes me think there’s something looming bringing in Richard Sherman and not kj Wright.


With 2 LB prospects, i wonder if boys are preparing to move off J Smith ?

This pick is the best one of the draft!! I never minded us taking a LB, but I did not want us taking one in the 1st round!! Especially Micah Parsons… I would’ve taken my chances with Caleb Farley, or moved down a couple more spots and got Greg Newsome!! Caleb Farley is gonna be good, this back problem he had surgery on isn’t a recurring problem, the 2nd surgery was to fix something that he should’ve let them fix the first time, but he decided to see if it would go away on it’s own!! But it didn’t so he decided to have the surgery and fix it so he would be ready for the start of the season!! So he’s gonna be good to go!! But oh well, we can’t change the past!! Just gotta hope for the best!!

And TUTX88, I doubt they’re gonna move on from Jaylon Smith, if I had to guess I’d say they will be moving on from LVE!! He’s the one who’s injured all the time and misses all kinds of games!! And they still haven’t picked up his 5th year option either!! So I think he’s the one that’ll be moving on!!
