4.28: Chronicle Live -- David White
David White and Ray Ratto join Chronicle Live to discuss where the 49ers might go with their first round pick.
It read was back on chronicle live we bring in David White. They smiling at David like it was back on the chronicle live one last time we will explain coming up -- just a minute -- -- so. What do you think Trent bulky and Jim Harbaugh early -- -- heard Peter King talked earlier he thinks the niners are probably gonna go defense any chance they shock us and take blame gathered at number seven if he's there and quite possibly he will be there for the for them. Get a chance of playing campers there but like a mother think he would our ball. He doesn't need a quarterback in the first round he's if he's everything they say he isn't -- the quarterback developer that he's reputed to be. He can take Christian ponder in the second he can take any adult later I don't know if you -- book if I don't think anybody's wore number seven. In this quarterback class is going to be there if they're -- -- -- good reason for that Aaron Rodgers history aside. Now if Patrick Peterson is there the LSU corner there are some reports where there. Even in -- mock draft they trade can't let it back to Houston to get a later -- like number eleven of Peterson's there. Thought they just take this guy. The only jump all over that they're hoping they're hoping people want him Nugent in Blaine Hibbert because you feel like you have to go -- -- quarterback. Because that's gonna drop someone like Peterson down to them doesn't jump all that they're not good trade out of that. They need at quarterback Nate Clements is -- -- too expensive. The keeper around the need somebody get their pass defense is great is there one was left you alone there was you don't have to run against them as you can throw against them and they got to address that. I see him taking Peter. Did you ever what does that Jim Harbaugh think -- that Jake Locker you heard Peter King say that he's dropping. I have gotten the opinion from a few people that that he likes him a lot coaching against him in the pac ten conference -- at a very tour. Senior year this year that a lot of injuries if blockers hanging around there. In the second round maybe -- even late first round to the niners an eagle to to go the Jake Locker do you thing. While they moved back in the first but he's there at the second I think it would like Kimball of the Christian ponder and again with Harbaugh that's the problem I have right now. Over a little confused with Jim Harbaugh. He thinks he can he's on the record saying he thinks he can win without Smith that he -- out Smith is a good quarterback once he thinks that after seeing Al Smith on film. He's looking anybody in this draft class -- the quarterback you think. I can make him good I can develop this guy so yeah I could see them doing this would Jake Locker who he thinks he can news without Smith and nobody's been able to do that. Six years why does anybody think. It. Jim Harbaugh means what he says about Alex Smith he's saying everything about this because he's looking at a season if there is a season where Alex Smith as his quarterback. He can't say got to do anything to get rid of this guy. He's been blowing smoke on this guy. Since that day he got the job whatever he says about him has no validity at all if he really believe that we never hear anything about playing Gabbard or any other. Court is supposed to they'd offer on the table for one year there is really what Israel is that is that that I think it went well with John Harbaugh gets handled. All -- don't know I don't know that I don't think -- gonna consumed succeed anywhere I think he's got to get out of here because that he doesn't and he fails here. He'll always wish she'd tried somewhere else but until they got. An alternative Alex Smith they have to blow smoke they'd they have the greatness of David Kohler president maybe. They signed Alex Smith tomorrow before the draft David starts which leads me to the big that -- news around the NFL level sports world judge Susan Nelson has denied the NFL's request first days of the lockout. Has been lifted in -- your quote here guys. This before this ordered is not obligate the NFL to enter into contracts notice -- prescribe the -- not a -- -- conduct. Like any defended in any lawsuit. The NFL must make a decision about how to proceed. And accept the consequences. Their decision he collusion more anti trust ray. So I'm sure the NFL owners are on a conference call right now or they've already banned it. That they've got to make a call in the next 21 hours or so into the NFL address starts tomorrow at 5 o'clock our time. How day proceeds so how do day. Pros she and guess technically -- new league year that started -- and -- can sign free agency out for -- I don't think but would they opened up. To trade right now all -- and agreed to do it straight picks for picks tomorrow could date trade players now tomorrow. Truthfully I think they might say for public consumption that they can't. But I think he would tell the teams do nothing. Because I think they wanna hardball this until they go to the eighth Circuit Court and fight and if they can get this ruling overturned. That they're playing all in with this race here but then -- happy -- made it may not only did so I. So what they do they -- -- in here they just stop they don't I don't only like the rest of our contempt of court my gosh well I I wouldn't mind that. I'm I'm OK let's sum up or not it also nurses there -- strategy all along his BN. We're gonna get to the eighth circuit and that's where we win because those guys are pro business. If they'd back off of that now. Because they think that it Nelson's ruling that teeth then they may as well okay. I think they're strategies all in all. Therein for penny in for a pound at this point I mean how many court cases can you lose before he does give up but they don't they keep coming back one. That we can because it's almost it's arrogant to do gonna stick their ground on this no matter what always the bitter end. But you'll judge Nelson she waited out they don't have any wiggle room there's no way ambiguity here they. They have to open the -- year she said immediately. So there's gonna be consequences and they better be careful. Could you Eagles concert was gonna hit them before you get to you know June July would have so tomorrow we'll just be draft day. And you're not what is known that it won't know in the morning and I think he'll look to trade players like the players who are under contract. And I think it makes draft but I think the football people they want bed desk. -- last year there was more trades than ever because there was no salary cap and no. You know at -- escalators in contracts to be put -- put -- -- their later years so. They had that that's how the Raiders got Jason Campbell last year in the third day of the draft for that -- of the fourth round draft pick to get him at the draft is going to be rather. The block and -- yeah if you don't but so might they opened up the trade players over the next three days. What I'm saying is. Unless there's an ownership shift where you get enough owners who say you know what we're gonna have to play nice for awhile. Then that means that there's an internal problem between the 32 owners about how they wanna continue to proceed. As of right now they're trying to hardball this and go to the eighth circuit and go all or nothing. If that changes if they do -- tomorrow and they start the league here it means that the moderates. Now have a sway that they didn't have a week ago and that's where you'll start seeing the seismic shift in the negotiation. Somebody sent me aside what to do here married. Divine intervention. And -- may be getting it from from from mr. David -- -- -- your last appearance -- alive and you're going to be your final days as a sportswriter the San Francisco chronicle. Tell our audience what what your next -- of work is going to be on Sundays. I'm going to be a pastor at the airport until church of god in the Fresno area going back home yet figure out the math. -- they came here in 2006 at the chronicle. The Raiders in the 49ers for when he won 62 we -- that for a under my watch and when you don't what I've done enough to -- the bad news on Sunday the fact I have sarge tell some good news on Sundays for the good answer and I'm in an area when the Raiders are not blacked -- -- you can get to Tivo the games and watchable. Forty on 62 -- pretty brutal printed there's a missing game here. So over that only adds up to 83 I skipped the trip to Baltimore for my Brothers went so are all well having the Baltimore since. Our talent the likes an -- drove you to Paula and alike except that what a great noble calling my friend that is that is terrific we're gonna mission here but. You're you're welcome to come back on -- -- and how's your your money more out of that I could use the holy water a little bit about it but think -- -- may god have -- -- yourself with this guy different.
