Barry Sims=Chad Clifton=Tony Pashos....most likely using us as leverage to resign with the 49ers......I reserve comment on Sims until we actually sign him.
Seems like the new regime has UFAs using us as leverage to renegotiate elsewhere so pardon me if I'm not excited about this until we see if he signs.
I think you guys are failing to realize that players drafted after Rd 2 are capable of starting too. I can easily see a situation where we draft tackles in Rds 1 or 2, and then again in 4 or 5....That 2nd lineman can easily compete for PT with Simms as a bridge....

True, but lets say we go QB in Rd 1 for arguments sake. Would you be totally upset with a draft like this in Rd2 1-4
Rd1- QB (Most likely Clausen if they go this route)
Rd2- Rodger Saffold
Rd4- Kyle Calloway
Your line gets younger immediately with the addition of Saffold and you have another young Tackle prospect in the pipline in Calloway who can step in if Sims slows down during the course of the season.
I had a debate about Veldheer this year with another poster. He commented on how the transition to the NFL is a bigger jump for guys that come from smaller programs in college. Since they play weaker competition they don't have to make adjustments and learn the way players do in the big conferences. Something to keep in mind if we draft a guy like Selvish Capers, a project that might learn somewhat quickly with the right coaching.

His visit is today!
Hope we can ink him. We need all the OL we can get.
I'd take Sims over Batiste any day.
Sims was supposed to visit today too, right? Lets hope we can sign him up quick....We need NFL caliber players at this point.
