Knee-jerk Reaction: 49ers 1st Round Pick

Parick Willis: LB/Mississippi

Strengths: Steve Young says he's good. Mel Kiper says he has "good diagnostic ability." Um, what the fuck is that?

Weaknesses: Don't really know anything about him. Can't say I've watched many Ole' Miss games in the last year.

Projection: Starting ILB. Best ILB in the history of the game. Okay, maybe not. But the defense is starting to come together with two pro-bowl corners (Walt Harris and Nate Clements), two first-round linebackers (Manny Lawson and Willis) with tons of speed, and some depth on the defensive line. I like this pick. And I'm still laughing about Brady Quinn.

I'd be happy...solid lb's are a must.

I bet y'all take a WR soon.
