Based on last yr, somebody already said it, we pass on Fleener and end up with somebody no one has heard of and he lights up the team. I don't think Aldon Smith was a lucky guess. They (B& H) knew.
Remember Parcells last year on an ESPN pre-draft show he gave you an entire spreadsheet of the average NFL player and their stats at each position, wingspan, height, weight, handsize etc. Baalke is supposedly a disciple of Parcells and we've heard McCloughan spout the same things from Ron Wolf (ie not drafting smaller WRs like Desean Jackson because the NFL is a big man's game.)
Aldon Smith strikes me as a unique talent with amazing wingspan, great height, ability to put on more weight. I think he looked more developmental to most last year and people were surprised how quickly he became a stud.
But if there is a random choice at 30, my best guess is it will be some player who is a bit of an outlier the measurables, someone who could be coached up and fit into the 49ers systems. I don't know who that is right now but I'm gonna go do some research.
