At the Movies with Trent Baalke

Trent Baalke, the 49ers' general manager, will hold his second annual "rookie review" today with reporters. During the session, Baalke will break down film of each of the 10 draft picks and explain why he liked each and how they fit on the roster. His first-round pick, Aldon Smith, has received some criticism from draft observers who question whether he is a true outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. It will be interesting to see how Baalke reponds to that assessment. Colin Kaepernick's development and Bruce Miller's transformation from defense to offense also are likely to be hot topics. What else are you wondering about the 10 draftees? Best/most popular question gets asked ...
