Disregarding our distant disappointments with Ohio St players, should we double down on drafting Ohio St guys in light of our more recent success?

Urban Meyer is putting out more NFL ready talent of late.

Who is worthy in the upcoming draft?

I think they should do whatever the hell Jeff Ireland wants to do, he has been money for us since his hiring.

Yes we do... No 5 for LSU, RB Derrius Guice. He only ran for 276 yards against Ole Miss last week.

Speaking of LSU players, isn’t Eric Reid a free agent next year? He’d be an excellent answer at SS.

I think we are solid at RB. Then again the better run game we have the better it is on Brees.
I think it's time to go QB in the first if there is someone there worth the pick. And no, not to replace Brees but to learn for a year before he takes over.

he is a FA and so far the switch from FS to SS with the 49era has gone so so but he is showing signs of improvement. well worth keeping an eye on.

Plenty of OSU talent to pick from

Two of probably the most hyped DE in the draft
Sam Hubbard DE Ohio State* 6042 265 4.76 #6 rJr
Tyquan Lewis, DE, Ohio State 6032 260 4.78 # 59 rSr

Others
Jerome Baker OLB/ILB Ohio State 6005 225 4.62 #17 Jr
Dante Booker OLB/ILB Ohio State 6021 233 4.62 #33 Sr
Billy Price C/OG Ohio State 6032 312 5.19 #54 rSr
Jalyn Holmes DE OSU Sr, 6045 265 4.76 #10 Sr
Marcus Baugh TE Ohio State 6041 250 4.84 #85 rSr
Jamarco Jones OT/OG Ohio State 6050 310 5.27 #74 Sr

Bold are the ones I am watching closely.

Reid is now playing inside 'backer for the Niners.

Eric Reidís move to linebacker is not approved by everyone

49ersí Eric Reid has new role in his return: inside linebacker
