NFL Draft 2012: Jim Harbaugh, Trent Baalke Talk About Trenton Robinson, Jason Slowey, Cam Johnson

The San Francisco 49ers may have confused some observers with their game plan during the 2012 NFL Draft, but the front office apparently couldn't be happier at how things turned out.

Nate Stuhlbarg of CSN Bay Area reports that head coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke spoke with the media following the conclusion of the draft on Saturday to discuss their draft picks.

Harbaugh took some time to talk about Trenton Robinson, a safety from the Michigan St. Spartans whom the team feels has tremendous upside.

"Great skill, athleticism, ability to cover," Harbaugh said. He'll need get better in a few areas: "learn the angles, track the deep ball."

The coach and GM seem to have much the same about Jason Slowey, a center form the less-well-known Western Oregon.

"He's going to need a year," Harbaugh said. "A lot of room to grow. Lot of upside."

"Jason is a young man who has the traits we are looking for," Baalke said.

Finally, Baalke discussed Cam Johnson, a defensive end from the Virginia Cavaliers whose stock plummeted due in part to his having sickle-cell anemia. The diagnosis is not an issue for the Niners, however.

"We're comfortable with his status," Baalke said. "We don't feel it'll be an issue going forward."
