Who leads our draft now that Scot Mc is gone?

Does Singletary now have ultimate power in decision-making in regards to personnel now that Scot is gone? Who the hell is going to draft for us? I dont want Sing leading the draft. He can barely coach both sides of the ball, and I dont think he has the intelligence to move up and down the board, targeting value with each pick. I see him more of a shopping list drafter, just waiting in line for his next selection. Scot Mc was great at moving up and downthe board, as well as focusing on our long-term goals. We can thank Scot Mc for the extra 1st round pick in this years draft.

Im not trying to be overly critical of Sing. Hes a motivator, inspirer, and unwavering leader that is highly respected. He is not ready for GM duties. My real concern is with Scot's replacement, coming in with just a few weeks until draft day. How can he understand our personnel? Will he steer the team in a radical new direction? Its just a lot of uncertainty, in what felt like a calm off-season for once.

If anybody could step in and be GM for the Niners it would be the braintrust here at the webzone. Yall know way more than you should, and are borderline obsessive about the Niners. And since you guys work so hard for free, I cant imagine what you guys could do with actual power in the organization.

Your last paragraph: OMG!! Reduce the dosage urgently
We have a board that will be followed, I'm sure there will still be war room disputes but I expect Sing to now have override authority when it comes to a pick. I'm actually a little curious to see what a Sing draft would look like. I think he may go outside of the usual norm and get guys that aren't always the prototypical size.

Seriously, 95% of the people here don't know s**t and base anything they might do off of Madden.

Agreed.

I don't know how to feel about this move. On one hand I hated the way McC overlooked smaller players because they didn't fit his SIZE mentality but the draft classes haven't been terrible with him leading the way and we did draft some excellent players like Gore and Willis.

Hopefully this will be for the best but honestly while I love him as a coach Singletary makes me really nervous with his draft evaluations. He seems like the type of guy to overdraft a guy just because he has great family values and would be a great teammate and overlook the guy who may not be as clean cut but is a much better talent.

I hope I'm wrong but the fact that Singletary didn't find Willis that impressive(if i recall correctly) his judgement may be spotty at best.
Tom Gamble director of pro personnel & Trent Baalke director of player personnel. Both are highly respected throughout the league & this ain't their first rodeo. Plus sing will get a huge say too.

And 95% of the people here would have selected Desean Jackson and Aaron Rodgers... two All-Pro caliber players... those two picks alone are about as good as everything Scott has brought in as a whole. I'm not saying people on here are knowledgable, but they know electric players when they see them. I don't know why people view todays GM's as some all-knowing entity. They only got to where they are through good-luck and family connections (some success and kiss a#%ing along the way).
I have a STRONG feeling that this draft is gonna be an EPIC fail.

YES!!!! GIVE THE GM JOB TO THE WEBZONE!!!!!! WOOHOO SUPER PARTY! Yeah!!!!!!!!
The biggest thing that freaks me out about Sing is the story about how he didn't want to draft Willis. I don't want to overreact to one example, but that would have been a big mistake to take Carriker over the Wall.

Hopefully he listens to the group and makes the right call.

Every coach and gm have made mistakes before.
