I was afraid the Niners wouldn't take him but it had nothing to do with McG.
It has happened to me before.
SEVERAL year ago, the Niners were in desperate need of a RB and there was a RB I REALLY liked out of Indiana. All of the scouts said there was NO WAY he could possibly make it out of the top 10.
The Niners had the 18th pick.
Well...that RB DID fall all the way to the Niners pick. I was doing backflips because I thougth the Niners would FINALLY get that RB....and they didn't freakin' take him. I was crushed.
I STILL haven't recovered. I NEVER think the Niners will take the guy I want...lol.
BTW, the guy the Niners DID take that year was S Dana Hall (TOTAL bust) and the RB I really wanted (Vaughn Dunbar - busted as well, but I still think he could have been decent as a Niner) went to the Saints at 21.
Also...the Niners took Ricky Watters the year before who promptly broke his foot, but became the starter over second round pick Amp Lee in the Preseason...and Ricky turned out OK. ;-)
