Given (1) and (2), don't you think your grades are too low? You're projecting your own draft crush (DeCastro) onto what you think the 49ers should have done, but the 49ers did exactly what they set out to do. It's not like they botched their plan. They just didn't want the guys that we wanted them to want...
As a retired English major, I must commend you on a nice turn of phrase.
It's all a matter of opinion though, so we'll see. If they really like him, it wouldn't shock me to see them let Goldson walk for big money in 2013.
But if he's anything like this (and to be honest, this was a game I didn't even catch, but was much like the others I watched of Robinson), he won't do much here.
I think the Niners will do everything humanly possible to sign Goldson to a multiyear contract, but not if it breaks the bank. I doubt they see Robinson as their future FS, but as a potentially valuable ST ace. Barring unforeseen circumstance, I think the positions they target early in next year's draft will be DL, TE, and S (unless there's a can't miss shutdown CB and they're willing to move Culliver to FS).

If you are going to give a guy s**t when he gets it wrong you can at least give him props when he gets it right. He was right on N. Davis, Rachal and Mays just for example.
I appreciate the time you put into this draft to share your thoughts and I realize that your opinions are just that opinions.
JJ Watt is a pretty great player. I don't think that's a very good example of getting it wrong. Sure, I think Aldon is better than JJ. But JJ is still a really good player and no one that liked him before the draft should feel ashamed of that.
