I know who i'd say was the worst draft pick ever. But not trying to hijack the thread plus the comments i'd receive wouldn't look at the whole picture so why bother.
I'd say this is a topic that's perfect for it.
Who do you think is the worst draft pick in the 49ers history?
Let's just say a guy who essentially cost us the #15 pick, the 37th pick and the 68th pick.
That's right one guy we drafted was basically a 1st, 2nd and 3rd round pick. But no one wants to see it like that!
Because i'm going to bed. I'll explain 1 more time and 1 time only. Denver wanted our #6 pick. They offered their #15 and #22 pick. We declined and countered with our #37 and #68 for the #22.
So instead of the #15, #22 (Manny Lawson), #37 and #68. We ended up with Vernon Davis and Manny Lawson.
Which means Davis essentially cost us the #15, #37 & #68. a 1st, 2nd and 3rd round pick. All for a TE.
I know I will hear this and that for saying this. But it's the truth. Assuming the rumors that Denver did offer this is true. Which we can't deny or confirm. But the rumors were there.
You can spin it all you want. But a TE is not worth a 1st, 2nd and 3rd round pick.
This VD talk is starting to look more and more like delusions.
As for Frank Gore, I was ecstatic that we drafted him...a 3rd round pick on a RB from the U is always great value. Moreover, many people had Frank as a potential 1st or 2nd rounder had he stayed in college for one more year. He was forced to leave for financial reasons.
