I would trade almost all of our 2nd rounders since 2000 for Marshall or Mcnabb!

2 8 Chilo Rachal G 6-5 315 Southern California
2 1 David Baas C/G 6-4 319 Michigan
2 14 Justin Smiley G 6-3 301 Alabama
2 26 Shawntae Spencer CB 6-0 176 Pittsburgh
2 25 Anthony Adams DT 6-0 300 Penn State
2 16 Jamie Winborn LB 5-11 224 Vanderbilt
2 4 John Engelberger DE 6-4 260 Virginia Tech
2 17 Jason Webster CB 5-9 180 Texas A&M

We have got to start doing better in round 2 of the draft or we will be in deep doo doo!

Your thoughts?
Hindsight is just too easy!

Early third. I remember hearing a lot of good things about him coming out of college. Never amounted to much in the NFL though.
I was just thinking about this earlier today. I REALLY think having the 2nd day start with round 2 can only help the 9ers (and everyone else for that matter). Baalke will have plenty of time to reassess things.

I think that's been the problem; not being able to handle all the moves, picks, and pressure involved in making that selection. 2nd round is a big deal and the 9ers MUST make a quality pick here.

I still am holding out hope for Chilo though.

Engelberger was a solid player, Webster was an ok #2 or #3 CB and Smiley was a good OG. All those guys are better than Winborn.
no pro bowlers
that's a poor list the 3rd round list is even more shocking one you take out gore.
Great point...people tend to wildly over-value draft picks simply because of the "possibility" that they might turn into something. However, the vast majority of draft picks end up turning into squat, though. When you have a chance to get a proven player, you should not hesistate to move picks for that person.

Why don't people understand this point? I really don't get it. If you look at the draft history of this team...it is pathetic. One of the MAIN reasons we have been subpar for so long...


Forget the 2nd round...look at out 1st round stinkers

'95 - J.J. Stokes
'96 - No pick
'97 - Jim Druckenmiller
'98 - R.W. McQuarters
'99 - Reggie Mcgrew
'00 - Julian Peterson & Ahmed Plummer
'01 - Andre Carter
'02 - Mike Rumph
'03 - Kwame Harris
'04 - Rashuan Woods
'05 - Alex Smith
'06 - Vernon Davis
'07 - Patrick Willis & Joe Staley
'08 - Kentwan Balmer
'09 - Michael Crabtree

Wow, wholeheartedly agree.... was going to write the exact same thing.

The 49ers seem to adhere themselves to this advice all too often. I still can't believe this team wasn't willing to give up a 2nd rounder this yr and a 3rd or 4th next year for a QB who has been to five NFC Championship games.

Woe is a 49ers fan..

Manny Lawson was a first rounder in 06 w VD

He was also a 4-3 DE in college opposite Mario Williams, Tank Tyler on NC State's D-line. Why we thought we could make him in to a 3-4 OLB idk

Um, we have 3 current starters, 2 of which are guards in that last. It is nice we have an old QB, or a malcontent WR, but we would never be able to pass them the ball. Football is a TEAM sport. You need 22 starters (plus special teams) to win games, and can't just get rid of players so you have a couple of more elite.
