Summary: Why Jevan Snead made the decision to go pro makes me dislike him as a prospect even more than I want to because it was such a questionable decision. He had a terrible season (54%, 20 TD, 20 INT) and there was no reason for him to go pro when he could have used another year to improve his passing skills and draft stock. Snead is a developmental project whom some team is likely to gamble on between Rounds 3 and 5.
Player Comparison: Kyle Boller. I think Snead, like Boller, is going to be a career backup. Boller has great physical tools, but poor mental ones as a passer.
No point in trading for Cousins, there's almost no chance he succeeds. 0 WRs and TEs to throw it to, so it would just be a waste of his prime years. If Shanahan reealllly wants him, wait until next year since he seems to have a rift with the Redskins. Besides, next year's quarterback class is much better if they fail to sign Cousins in FA.
I don't agree on a lot. They have so many cuts on the OL you didn't mention including Dunlap and Franklin which will save them 12+ million. Stuckey is not worth 3 million. They can make on very solid move or a couple with draft help to protect Phillip. Cruz could be an interesting pair with Allen if he can return to prior form though.
