Ex-49ers GM Joe Staley was great but he

There's arguably nobody more in-tune with what the should expect as they transition from as the team's starting left tackle to newly acquired star than Scot McCloughan. He was San Francisco's vice president of player personnel when they moved up in a deal with the to select Staley in the first round of the 2007 draft. After his stint with the Niners, McCloughan eventually found his way to Eddie Jackson Jersey the where he saw firsthand as Washington's GM how dominant Williams can be protecting the blindside.After 13 seasons in the , Staley decided to retire this offseason and the 49ers were quick to find his succe s, dealing for Williams, who was seeking a trade out of D.C. for quite some time, at the 2020 draft. While Staley's Chicago Bears Golf Sporting Goods career po sibly may land him in Canton one day, McCloughan points out that the 49ers are seeing an upgrade at the position as they look towards the 2020 season and beyond."Joe Staley is a really good tackle don't get me wrong," McCloughan said, via . "But he ain't Trent Williams. He hasn't been Trent Williams. And won't be Trent Williams when Trent's career is over and you compare them." Williams, who was selected with the No. 4 overall pick by Chicago Bears Hats the Redskins at the 2010 , has been named to seven straight Pro Bowls over the course of his career and was second-team All-Pro in 2016. He'll enter the 2020 campaign at age 32, but by all accounts is still within his prime as a player, despite sitting out all of last season over disputes with Washington. Staley, meanwhile, was named to six Pro Bowls and was listed on the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 2010s."Staley fit that offense to a T," McCloughan said. "But they're different players. Robert Quinn Jersey Trent is so talented that he can play in any system. You want to play power football? He's going to play power football, and he's going to wear your a s down. You want to be play fine se football and dance out in space? He'll do that with you all day. That's why he's so unique. These guys they don't come around very often." Given Pat O'Donnell Jersey how great both players are, the 49ers -- and specifically quarterback -- should count themselves fortunate to experience such a seamle s transition of elite talent to a pivotal position within their offense.
