Worried when the niners picked ?

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. ;-)

i remember that year....i really wanted niners to take touchdown tommy vardell from stanford, but i think the browns traded up to get him....tommy later came to sign with niners towards end of his career.....with vardell gone, i really wanted niners to take dale carter from tennessee...i always thought that carter, who was much faster and quicker than hall, would have stopped alvin harper in tha cowboys playoff game when he ran a slant for about 70 yards, past hall, as niners were getting momentum for great comeback

i also wanted niners to take brett farve many years ago, even though they had montana, young and bono, as i thought he would be a great qb after reading the draft mags (i remember he beat alabama his sr season)..instead they took fat ted washington...i also had same feeling i had for farve when niners took giovanni carmazzi, so one can never tell

Wow...ya, I remember Touchdown Tommy and Dale Carter.

I can't remember his name, but the Falcons took a RB over Dunbar that year too that I liked...and he never became anything either. He was a tall, lanky guy...kinda looked like Eric Dickerson when he ran....I wish I could remeber his name. I liked him as well and the papers predicted he would be the Niners pick.

was it tony smith

After the Raiders took DHB and Jacksonville passed on Crabs, were any of you worried the niners would not take Crabtree. I must admit I still thought McClueless was going to take Oher. Could you just imagine the backlash he would have received if we would have passed up Crabs for Oher.

are you still happy now?
its only a steal if you get him at #10 pay grade!

Low draft picks is killing this franchise. We would have won another super bowl if we just would have skipped all our 1st round picks

You sure must have done some serious digging for this old post. Yah Im still happy they drafted him, he was the best player available. Eventually he will sign and until he plays we can't judge the pick. He is not the first player to hold out and wont be the last.

I would make that trade off in a heart beat. I don't think you truly appreciate how bad the 1st picks have been.

I would trade down every single season and be an FA monster. I highly doubt we would have not won the division a couple of times this way.

All 1 playoff win per decade franchises share one thing in common. 1st round busts. The reason the 49ers are a NFL joke is because the few good picks could not make up for all the busts. It really does not get much simpler than that

There was no doubt in my mind that Crabtree would be the pick when it came around...
