It was a draft class built on logic and quality, addressing needs and adding players that can contribute quickly. Among the highlights are LSU free safety Eric Reid (who will replace Dashon Goldson), defensive end Tank Carradine (who is recovering from a torn ACL and will eventually step in for Justin Smith), South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore (who is healing from a gruesome injury) and tight end Vance McDonald (who could replace Delanie Walker). General manager Trent Baalke did a nice job overall.
