With Aldon Smith entering a full-time role, the 49ers need pass rushing depth to spell Smith and Brooks at DE and OLB. And Haralson is in the last year of his contract, Irvin would have secured the OLB position for the next 4 years, at least.
Plus, the 49ers would have been in a position to draft Randle or Hill at the end of the 2nd round instead.
WR: Moss, Crabtree, Manningham, Randle/Hill, Ginn
WR: Moss, Crabtree, Manningham, Jenkins, Ginn
I'd like the first option better.
lol we have Willis locked up, Bowman isnt going anywhere, we just paid up to keep Brooks, Aldon was a smashing success, brought back Grant, etc, etc, etc. Why would we then use our 1st pick of the draft on a high risk pass rusher projected to mid 2nd+?
Baalke put Jenkins' name in an envelope the night before. We werent taking Irvin...
