    and yeah i'm banking on the kid developing into a monster given his tools...being they are so high end...
    He could be a monster some day. He's a little bit better against the run than commonly given credit for being, although I still wouldn't call him good there. He's got strong hands. You could see him playing SAM linebacker, I think.

    But at the same time, is his story so very different from Dontay Moch's? That's the chance I don't want to take at 12 overall.

    Lane Johnson could even end up the first tackle off the board. I fully believe that. He's always stood out to me on tape as the guy that Miami would prefer for their scheme (as would I) if they didn't get shot a Luke Joeckel. He went out and proved it at the Senior Bowl I think better than Eric Fisher did, though Fisher got all the press.

    Hoos: We already know that you think Mingo's ceiling is limitless, but what do you think his floor is? Can you, in any way, see Mingo potentially busting?

    Good points. I don't know if people realize that SF has three #1 picks on their offensive line. It's an important part of a team even if it's not exciting. That said, my pick right now would be Patterson at #12. I think we can get some offensive line help in R2.

    If we pass on Lane Johnson or Eric Fisher staring at us at 12 and jake kong just went bye bye, the world would think us so stupid.

    Patterson is not the most explosive guy, there is absolutely no proof that anyone can point to that seperates him from others in this draft. not buying the hype. this is starting to become like ted ginn again. stop it!

    agreed... If jake long walks, the pick at 12 will almost certainly be an OL... this is a byproduct the "group" so to speak that want long to walk have to realize. everybody has already touched on the skepticism regarding martin at LT, and the holes that are created etc etc...

    I also completely agree with the above poster who mentioned san fransisco and their OL investment with the first rounders... ask them how they feel about that... I will bet they are thrilled...

    people expecting a flashy pick at 12, should brace themselves... because a OL selection is obviously very much in the cards... personally, I'd prefer a flashier pick at 12, but I won't be calling for necks if the pick is a lane johnson... thats one helluva pick.

    I would be less likely to take an OL in this draft if it werent for two things.

    1. Deep WR draft
    2. Many picks unlike most years.
