An interesting argument emerged

Post by laiyongcai92 » Fri May 17, 2019 5:08 pm

during Wednesday’s PFT Live regarding Washington’s decision to claim linebacker Reuben Foster on waivers: Should the league have blocked the move?Chris Simms raised the possibility. While it has some appeal on the surface George Kittle Jersey White , the reality is that the league can’t tell a team to sign or not sign a player, unless and until that player is properly suspended under one of the various league policies that permit suspension. To simply swoop in and tell one or more teams not to acquire a player whose arrival would be unpopular would be a violation of the labor deal, and possibly collusion.The league had to be tempted to try. At a time when the “focus on football” message from new P.R. chief Jocelyn Moore has worked well, the NFL surely didn’t want the top story on many sports shows to arise from the decision to make a waivers claim for Foster, especially when much of the discussion consists of criticism of the move. The better focus would be on the high-powered offenses and high-stakes games looming this week.So maybe that’s ultimately why the league took the likely unprecedented step of keeping the identity of the team that claimed Foster on waivers a secret for roughly an hour on Tuesday afternoon. Maybe the league was trying to get Washington to reconsider its decision in ways far more subtle than issuing a mandate not to claim him.

We luckily have video of each draft thanks to YouTube poster and 49ers fan Marvin49. We’ll be looking at every year up to 2018. Today it’s 2016.With 11 picks on their hands and the disaster that was Jim Tomsula washed off, the 49ers had a chance at rebuilding. No longer in a “re-load” mode as Trent Baalke so elegantly put it a year prior, the 49ers needed to make some splashes and get back to having a competitive team. Spoiler: They didn’t. The first pick was predicted and also quite worked out quite well: DeForest Buckner out of Oregon. Buckner quickly made a name for himself in 2016 and was on an island in 2017. The only problem was Buckner was double and triple teamed due to being the only threat on the defensive line. Regardless, Buckner should be in line for a huge payday quite soon.The Buckner pick was too obvious and gift-wrapped to screw up, even for the 49ers front office. It’s after Buckner where Trent Baalke realized he was Trent Baalke.Going back into the first round with a trade, the 49ers took Joshua Garnett. a decent, but huge reach for a guard. The 49ers quickly became head-scratchers. Garnett remains with the team, but given the extensions to other guards and how the line solidified in 2018 without him Frank Gore Jersey , he may be on his way out.Things didn’t improve, pick three went to Will Redmond, a very good cornerback prospect except for an obvious problem: He had a knee injury, BUT Baalke said he would be ready by training camp. Redmond was placed on IR in early September that year.The latest member of the ACL All-Stars, Redmond was released a season later.The next pick was one of the most incriminating for the 49ers front office, cornerback Rashard Robinson. A decent prospect with just one problem: was kicked off the LSU Tigers for breaking and entering. Robinson had his shot as a starting cornerback the following year, but wound up getting traded to the New York Jets. The pick itself wouldn’t have been so frustrating if it wasn’t for the fact quarterback Dak Prescott was available for the taking and would go to the Dallas Cowboys two picks later. As time has gone on, Prescott hasn’t been the greatest either. The 49ers coaching staff liked Prescott, Trent Baalke didn’t seem to care.The rest? Defensive end Ronald Blair was a decent pick and has provided some solid depth. Blair could also take over starting for a game or two and hold the fort. Aaron Burbridge was released in 2018, ending his experiment. Quarterback Jeff Driskel was thought of as a nice prospect, but was waived and snapped up by the Cincinatti Bengals before he could hit the practice squad. Who was Driskel waived in favor of for the third-string quarterback? Christian Ponder. Buckner has been the only sure-starter the 49ers have uncovered so far in this league.
