No it wouldn't!!
First of all, CB isn't even that great of a need: OT, OG, OLB, S are all greater needs. Would he start ahead of Clements? No. Would he start ahead of Spencer? No. We'd be spending a 1st round pick on a nickle back.
Secondly, he's not even that good.
I swear to God, if we spend our 1st pick on Haden, I'm going to punch an infant.
CB IS a need.
The Niners had one the weakest secondaries in the league last year. Clements is getting up there in age and Brown has shown that he still isn't that great. Spencer is do-able, but he isn't spectacular.
Haden was a shut down corner in one of the best divisions in college football and you say he isn't good. There are a ton of scouts that would disagree with your assessment.
CB is up there in draft value with OT's and Pass Rushers, because good ones are hard to find.
Too many people on this board get infatuated with "sexy" picks like Spiller, and want to ignore the important parts of a team.
