Well I think we would have to have some information that any of those guys were on the Niners board. If not, the point is lost because the Niners may have pulled the trigger on the trade specificially because none of those guys impressed them.
No doubt! In fact, you can argue that none of those guys where on the Niners board as we desperately needed and OT and they decided to trade the pick. Last year everyone said it was a "weak draft". Remember how many times the Pats traded back?
Hindsight is 20/20, but having the 17th pick in a deep draft is money.
Exactly . . . and a single second round pick last year would not have put us over the top. Also if the conditions are right when we're on the clock the 17th pick could be used to move down for an extra 2nd rounder . . . like you said in a pretty deep draft.
