    Well Im not putting too much stock into the 3-4 talk. We're going to still run the 4-3, and on tape Aaron Donald stands out.

    I'm guessing that we will run a base 3-4 much like Horton has done most of his career.

    I see Hageman fitting the Calais Campbell role.

    So after watching Aaron Donald dominate the combine and then watching him on tape he is far better than Hageman and just showed he is a better athlete. I would be ok with either but given the option I'd take Donald right now. The only thing that scares me is Casey and Donald on the ends are both short. Maybe the height things is overrated but they won't do much in terms of batted balls like a JJ Watt would. Which is fine if they are constantly crashing the back field but long arms to disrupt passing lanes when they don't get that push is a nice bonus.

    Frank Gore tore both of his ACLs and went in the third. He turned out ok.

    At RB no less. Pretty impressive. You gotta think he's the exception not the rule though right?

    I know it could go both ways with the injury bug. I almost always pass on guys with multiple injuries.

    I don't know. Injuries are flukey. I mean, Easly tore his second ACL in practice turning to run after a play. **** happens.

    I had a friend in college tear his ACL and MCL untouched when tried to redirect while covering a kick off. Kid was a 24 ft long jumper before that injury, never the same after that. He can still dunk though.

    50% of the time were are going to use a 4 man front anyway so another great inside pass rusher would be worth consideration. He lifted like a 320 lb guy and runs like a 240 lb linebacker. No question he is worth a look.

    Hageman had a good but not great workout. Tuitt didn't run at all. Certainly now Donald has made himself equal to them but i still love that size in our defense. It is possible that Tuitt or Hagelman could fall to the 2nd rd if Donald and Jerrnigan come off first.
