I'm curious to see OTC, MadDog, or any of the webzone's other draft gurus to look back and analyze some of the different draft picks (biggest reach, biggest steal, team with best overall draft, etc.) There weren't too many headscratchers that I recall, except for Lee Ziemba who didn't even declare for the draft.
Just doing a quick skim, I want to be fair and at least select a few of each. I was working off my own board, so it's a little harder for me to sit here and be objective, but I want to get as many people some credit here as I can.
A bit of this is post-All Star game hindsight, so keep that in mind as well.
RB Joe McKnight in the 2nd.
OT Ciron Black in the 2nd.
OG Thomas Austin in the 5th -- I'll put my pick here, as I definitely reached for Minny out of both need and scarcity.
OT Tony Washington in the 4th.
WR Jeremy Williams in the 5th round, WR Jacoby Ford in the 4th . (NinerJohn)
CB Devin McCourty in the middle of the 3rd round, TE Jimmy Graham in the 6th. (OTC)
CB Alterraun Verner in the 6th round, FS Robert Johnson in the 5th. (GoFD)
WR Carlton Mitchell in the 5th (solid)
WR D. Thomas in the 4th (Bay_Area)
