I know we have not had too many good draft memories in the last 15 years or so, but I just thought we should reflect on some good memories over the years on draft day. In 2007, I was pumped to get Patrick Willis, I knew he would be a stud. I was happy to get Vernon Davis too in 2006. He is now living up to the hype
What are your favorite draft day memories?

for me has to be last yr with crabtree. soon as he got past up by al davis i started to get hyped and when jac and especially gb passed him up i was jumping up and down going nuts. when goodell read off we selected crabtree i was going almonds got a headache afterwards
I know it doesn't sound good now, but I remember being excited about drafting Alex Smith. At the time I was saying finally a QB for the future.
I was pumped about Patrick Willis and I remember sceaming "YES" when the Raiders passed on Crabs. I was listening on the radio when the Niners selected Crabtree. My wife knew the moment I got home that we got Crabtree.
Last year when we drafted Crabtree, I was on the porch watching the TV & as soon as Goodell read that card, I did a backflip off the porch into the yard & almost hurt myself. I was screaming so loud my 2 year old son thought I was really hurt so he started crying with me.
So many great Niner draft moments. I would guess it would be a toss up between:
Kentwan Balmer 2008
Alex Smith 2005
Rashaun Woods 2004
Kwame Harris 2003
Mike Rumph 2002
Gio Carmazzi 2000
Reggie McGrew 1999
RW McQuarters 1998
Jim Drukenmiller 1997
Israel Ifeanyi 1996
JJ Stokes 1995
Dana Hall 1992
Dexter Carter 1990
Keith Delong 1989
Daniel Stubbs 1988
Todd Shell 1984
Yes.. so many great Niner drat moments. OK.. so my final choice for the pick that still gets me SOOOO excited......... Jim I'm a Fricking Drunkenmiller
