49ers complete excellent draft

They say it's like Christmas for all football fans, but it was the 49er faithful unwrapped the most presents on draft weekend this year, only adding to the anticipation of the team's run at the NFC West title.

Last blog went over the addition of tackle Anthony Davis from Rutgers and guard Mike Iupati of Idaho, and if those picks had fans thrilled, day two left them ecstatic. Adding to the physical theme of the 49ers draft, the team selected USC safety Taylor Mays in the second round and Penn State linebacker Navorro Bowman in the third.

Mays is a physical force that made receivers fear crossing patterns every saturday during his stint as a Trojan. The 6'3" 230 pound safety will add to a defense that already includes heavy hitters such as Patrick Willis, Dashon Goldson, and Takeo Spikes, just to name a few.

Bowman stands six feet tall and 242 pounds and according to was the highest graded player drafted in the entire third round. Adding another physical presence to the linebacker depth, as they did last year with 5th round pick Scott Mckillop, will only make the team better.

On day two, fans waited out the 4th and 5th round as the team did not have any picks, but once the team made their three selections in the sicth round, it was clear the team wasn't done with their theme.

With their first sixth round pick, the 49ers selected Mississippi State running back Anthony Dixon. At 6 feet tall and 233 pounds, Dixon will add a bruising back behind the soon-to-be dominant offensive line. With their second 6th round pick, it was a tight end from Pittsburgh by the name of Nate Byham, a second team All Big East selection who is considered an outstand run blocker.

The draft rounded out with another sixth round pick, wide receiver/kick returner Kyle Williams, and cornerback Phillip Adams. Williams was an outstanding threat to score every time he touched the ball at Arizona State University and Adams is considered to be at his best in press coverage.

With all the new talent on the team, it's clear head coach Mike Singletary is getting the ingredients he needs to cook up a championship. The team will be propelled on September 20th, 2010 as the fans will Rock the Stick as the 49ers look to defeat the World Champion New Orleans Saints.

Niners Beef Up the Line

What's a good way to get Candlestick Park hopping this season? How about Frank Gore dominating week after week? To assure that their stud running back does just that, the 49ers beefed up their offensive line Thursday night in the first round of the NFL draft.

The 'Niners started their night by trading from the 13th selection to the 11th to guarantee they get their guy is tackle Anthony Davis from Rutgers. At 6'6" 325 pounds, Davis will compliment starting left tackle Joe Staley.

"I wanted to go to the 49ers and I wanted to play for Coach Singletary," said Davis upon being selected, "I love the game and they'll see a guy who is ready to work and ready to learn."

With the 17th pick, the team further flexed their power offense philosophy by taking guard Mike Iupati from Idaho. The 6'5" 331 pound monster will provide stability along the offensive line for the next decade.

With Mike Singletary's style of football in full swing, things are clear that the 49ers are primed for a run at the division title, and more.

To help the team out, spread the word that on September 20th, 2010, it's time to Rock the Stick!
