    NFL Total Access just announced that Alex Smith is being picked over Aaron Rodgers. All that remains to finalize it is the issue of money but aside from that they say the 49ers are set.

    I haven't been watching NFL Total Access tonight, but if this is true, as soon as they finalize the money we will be on the clock. We can start negotiating with players then.

    I don't think we can. The rule states unles you are picking #1 overall, you can't talk money with players.

    If we dont trade down then Edwards would have to be the pick at #2. I think that Saban feels that there are RB's that can be drafted in the 3rd that can start. A WR like Edwards could help out our passing game and make Feeley become a better QB.

    Really? I thought once the team in front of you picks, the next team can pick and then so on.

    if there are RB's worthy of a starting job, they'd be taken before RD. 3. Edwards may help feeley, but without a RB, we're one dimensional and defenses can pick us apart. i've got no major objections to Braylon, i just think Ronnie Brown is a better idea.

    I really don't want to see us draft Rodgers.

    But, technically they haven't picked. And I believe the rule states that ONLY the team with the #1 selection in the first round can talk contract with players.

    yea, i agree with nublar here, i remember weeks in advance when Houstan had their stuff figured out, a few days before the draft i remeber Carolina was finalizing things with Peppers.

    Correct.....only the #1 selection can negotiate w/prospective draftees regardless if they sign him or not.

    Is this confirmed with the Niners? Meaning....is this another speculative rumour? Just because it was heard on the NFL network it doesnt mean it's not a rumour. Now if they have a contract worked out...then its set.

    Don't you people read? The ORIGINAL POST said.......NFL TOTAL ACCESS! It's a TV SHOW! There won't be a link! :shakeno: :shakeno:

    There isn't a "link" to everything in life.

    It sounds like gamesmanship from the 49ers. They think they are missing out on the action the Dolphins are getting and are hoping the Vikes and Bucs start calling them for a deal, because now they are taking Smith instead of Miami and anyone interested in him now has to call them. They are fishing for a trade

    Also anyone think Saban overplayed his hand by talking up Alex Smith as a possiblity too soon. Should he have waited a little longer?

    MikeO what I said is all the online sites are dreaming of a story like this today and I would assume they would start posting it up. What I am asking is a link to complement the Total access story to validate the story. Yesterday on SportsCenter in Canada they announced that SF took Edwards this morning they had a retraction saying edwards had only visited the niners.... just trying to validate the stories.

    Nope not correct, They said on the radio today that in 1984, the first two picks were signed before draft day. Carl Banks went into the draft day being the actual first player unofficially selected that day.

    Maybe they changed the rule then? I thought they said on ESPN today that only the team with the first pick can negotiate and how it is a nice advantage to have.

    9'ers saw the attention we were getting. It's all good, we can now do the Braylon Edwards smokescreen.

    My understanding is that once a player is officially signed by the team with the #1 pick team #2 can begin negotiations.

    yes thats true

    it is true cause once a team negotiates and signs a player .. they have to draft him so then the next team if they want could start negotiations with whomever they choose...

    The second team can negotiate and sign a player before the draft...but only obviously after the 1st team....the top two teams are the only teams that have that right.

    I don't think we'd want to negotiate with anyone, if SF has decided on Smith. Keep everyone guessing who we'll pick so we can get different teams bidding for our pick. If there are no takers, we still pick who we have rated highest.

    Certainly not your Dudeness. I'm just wondering if the Alex Smith talk started too soon, which I think we can agree was done to throw mud in the water and generate some phone calls, giving the 49ers a chance to react.

    How many times have you heard " no quality at no.2 for RB" give the draft Brown talk a rest, he's not coming to miami. Check with me this time next week if you don't believe.
