Morning Tailgate: Round 1 Recap

Posted by Taylor Price on April 26, 2013 – 11:07 AM

For a second consecutive year, Trent Baalke pegged a first-round draft pick at least 24 hours before the actual draft.

In 2012, it was A.J. Jenkins who was the preferred pick of the San Francisco 49ers general manager. In 2013, the honor went to LSU safety Eric Reid.

Baalke’s 24-hour preference of the SEC safety was shared by Jed York.

The 49ers CEO offered a glimpse into Baalke’s pre-draft mindset in a Thursday night conversation with Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports.

“We weren’t nervous,” York said of the 49ers draft room. “Trent made up his mind yesterday what he wanted to do and he went out and did it. And if it hadn’t worked out, we’d have still had some pretty good options.”

Perhaps the 49ers will have those other options in play for the No. 34 overall pick, a selection they acquired from a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The fast-paced first-round of the NFL Draft is recapped in today’s Morning Tailgate.

On to the links…

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle shared Baalke’s comments on “absolutely” having a target at pick No. 34.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News shared a running blog of the draft’s first round.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee wrote about the draft offering a glimpse of the 49ers personnel future.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com discussed Reid’s outlook of starting in 2013.

Jarrett Bell of USA Today covered Reid’s previous history with coach Jim Harbaugh.

    THE SAN FRANCISCO FORTY NINERS

    we r in a very good position on pick #34, theres still a lot of good quality players on board, its just hard to predict on whats in the mind of JH & baalke, but i’m sure they already have a game plan in place , i’ll just hope its gonna be a nose tackle or a defensive linemen next, one thing 4 sure is were not done yet.. BTW ..any thing new w/ the seahags, i have’nt heard from them, if there picking or not,i don’t give a rats @ss anyway….

    very nice move baalke is on the ball and have no doubts he will get a hard nosed DT and TE as well as corner prospect and 3/4 OLB yes smith is here but as we all saw without the other justin he does struggle not that he will not get better but if we can get a true olb then why not ….lots of late rounders became very good ballers so take the shots …..nice work on the move up …keep it going

    i’ll add my two cents worth: yes a “hardnosed DT”, that spells “nose tackle”, with speed and agility; i just know there must be one of them out there for us; and many good tight ends coming up, one will surely fall to us . . . if we are agressive at all, go get a DL that you favor and don’t let him slip ! Dion Jordan was my personal favorite and I think Miami got maybe the best player of the draft; don’t forget 11 yearsa, Aldon was injured during the last games and playoffs, and I look for more great things from him this year and Ahmad Brooks, two guys who can really come off the edge and learning to contain the mobile QB’s, especially in our division . . . pretty exciting draft, let’s go 49ers !!!

    OLB no we the best olb’s in football aldon isnt in olb, and nose tackle i kinda doubt but dl an end

  45. By ace on Apr 26, 2013 | Reply

    so im just gonna say
    “Once the 49ers were on the clock on Day 2, they elected to move back, trading the No. 34 overall selection to the Tennessee Titans for Nos. 40, 217 overall and a third-rounder in 2014.
    This was a superb move by Niners’ star executive, Trent Baalke, who added significant draft capital next year and only moved back six spots.”
    “And with the No. 40 overall pick in the 2013 draft, the San Francisco 49ers then selected Tank Carradine of Florida State”
    boss move there

  46. By JParker on Apr 26, 2013 | Reply

    Trading our 34th pick overall for the 40th overall and a 2014 3rd round pick was an excellent move, but I cannot agree with trading up to pick up Reid and sacrificing such a high 3rd round pick to do it, especially since we still need a NT, CB, WR, OG, and a C.

    as I have read most of the comments and watched the draft one thing is for sure the NFC West just got a lot meaner ,as we all know that’s what happens when you have good coaching and GM …..

  51. By dave g on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    I like the players we got and have not proble with us moving up for S Reid. When they saw Vaccaro come off they knew they may miss their top Safety so they moved up to make it happen. For the amount of spots they jumped up a 3rd round pick is actually a good move based on drapt pick value boards. It really is. Now the key is choosing the right guy which I think they did. My only head scratcher is I wish we would have done more of that with all the picks we have-kind of like teh Vikings did. Thats all I am saying.

  52. By dave g on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    And for those worried about WR’s. You heard it here: A.J. Jenkins is gonna break through and Ricardo Lockette is gonna surprise many. Who you say? You will not be asking that when we hold up the trophy next year!

  74. By phatalerror on Apr 28, 2013 | Reply

    I have nothing to say either way about the draft picks. The 49ers had only one position of need: Safety. They traded up to get the one player in the draft with the right mix of football smarts and upside that could most likely fill the void left by Dashon Goldson. Then they went after a couple defensive linemen and Delanie Walker’s replacement. After that, they took some high-upside fliers on injured players that could be awesome when healthy. The 49ers did as well as they could have been expected to, if not better.

    I don’t evaluate players in a vacuum, and pre-NFL might as well be a vacuum. When I said “on with the evaluations”, I was referring to Harbaugh’s staff.

    We’ll talk about the draft picks once we’re through cuts and down to the last 53.

  78. By JParker on Apr 29, 2013 | Reply

    This was a great draft. Unlike previous drafts, we have rookies that can be plugged in without our team missing a beat and actually being better, especially at rushing the quarterback. Apposing quarterbacks are going to have nightmares at the thought of playing us, especially after Tank is 100%.

  79. By JParker on Apr 29, 2013 | Reply

    You all need to take a look at one of our free agents, Lawrence Okoye DE. He has never played football, but is a 6’6″ 305 pound specimen that can run the 40 in 4.78.
    Give this guy a couple of years of some serious tutoring and football conditioning and we could end up with another steal and a nightmare for apposing offenses.
