Considering that MadDog had us winning the NFC West and going to the playoffs last season -- I consider his bad grades to be a Godsend.
Looks like Harbaugh and Baalke had a great draft after all.
You are right. I projected the Niners to go 9-7 and make the playoffs as the divisional winner.
As for the draft, I can be wrong, but historically, I have been pretty dead-on about the Niners draft classes in the past. As stated in this thread, the top two picks have a big upside, but my concern is that both are extremely risky, and this team needs stability and hitting on the draft as a bridge to the future. We have drafted an impact second or third rounder in years, and our first rounders, even at the high end, have been met with mixed results.
In other words, this team has taken too many risks before, and they rarely pan out.
