    Mario Williams

    I was wondering why so many mock drafts (almost all) have the Niners taking Mario Williams, who is more of a pass rushing defensive end, when they run a 3-4 defense? :?:

    Because he is a BEAST, that's why. Athletic monster. Next Julius Peppers.

    I agree that he is a beast, but he doesn't fit a 3-4 scheme as a DE.

    Ya, he definitely doesn't fit in a 3-4. He's too tall and skinny. Although most mocks I've seen have him going either 5 to GB or 6 to OAK.

    Maybe they think he can play linebacker.

    Mistake. If you want a 3-4 linebacker out of NC State, pick Manny Lawson, the end on the other side. Mario is a great defensive end but I doubt he would be all that great at linebacker. Manny on the other hand would tear it up at LB in the 3-4 kind of like Terrell Suggs.

    I have him on my facebook, and I have been trying my best to get him to pull an Eli and drop to us. Imagine that defensive line.

    No way man, we have two first round picks invested in ends.
