    I think this is a foregone conclusion in Devon Still because San Fran doesn't need a DE.

    Devon Still, Vinny Curry or Andre Branch, have to address the DLine.

    I still don't think Devon Still is a 3-4 lineman.

    He makes plays in the backfield with his quickness. If he doesn't beat his guy off the snap, he doesn't end up doing much on the play.

    He's not tremendously effective against double teams. He ends up getting knocked on his ass WAY too much against the run. He doesn't play with a great deal of passion or consistent effort.

    In my view, Still is a 4-3 DT, not a 3-4 DE.

    Reyes brings far more schematic versatility, without giving up athleticism.

    Just my opinion.

    I like Reyes

    I think he's quicker and stronger and generally more athletic than still, and was injured less frequently in college. the only advantage still has is that he played in a bigger program

    We passed on Jared Odrick a couple of years ago and while he was out his first year with an Injury he is looking like a solid DE/DT for the Fins going forward.

    Still might not bw a sexy pick but he is BPA here as most sites have him ranked in the teens/early 20's on their BB's.

    I vote Devon Still reluctantly. I'm just nervous about guys from Penn State.

    I'll go post the selection in a few. Thanks for participating everyone. Make sure to vote on the two 2nd round selections as well in a few days from now.

    I'm with you, it sounds like Still should be the choice but i am leery of Penn State D-line men. If i didn't go with Still it would have been Vinny Curry.

    Lavonte David is a 5th-7th rounder.

    Recent PSU DLine have been doing quite well. Look at Jared Odrick last year. He didn't even start all of last year. This guy is going to be a beast.

    O RLY? Because he played 4-3 DT his entire college career.

    I vote Kendall Reyes. He gives us the scheme versatility that we need where as Devon Still is an upgrade over Myron Pryor, who gets pressure as a 4-3 3 tech DT but offers nothing in the 3-4.

    I vote for local dude Kendall Reyes. Even a 3-4 DL needs athletes; but as of this morning,
    Fenene is our best athlete on the DL. It's way past time for an infusion of young, talented,
    athletic blood here.
    I wouldn't be upset with Still at 31, though I see him more as a space-eater than as a play-maker.

    Errr. No he's not. He's a 2nd rounder, 3rd at worst. But I was joking because of the rhyming of Still and Hill. Surprised that wasn't more apparent.

    He has crappy size and even crappier speed for his size. The only way he goes in the 2nd round is if the Bears GM Phil Emery is drunk on draft day.
