Why didn't you guys bring him in for a visit?
"Why would we want to advertise to the rest of the league that we have interest in a player?"
Baalke and Co. are smoke-screeners. They make you think one thing while they are planning something totally different. We're all salivating over Tank because the niners have showed interest in him and we're imaging the possibilities. That's what other teams are also doing and will be worried the 49ers will take him so they make moves out of fear, which plays right into Baalke's hand.
Want to know who they pick? Start looking at players they've shown little interest in.
Now you're just trying to outsmart yourself. Baalke's talking a bunch of nonsense. If anything, Reid was the most telegraphed draft pick they've made, regardless of their claims and not having brought him for a workout. It was no secret that they had major interest in Reid and this has been known for months, there's a lot of posters on here who had Reid as their pick in the 1st round.
If you look at the 49ers recent drafts, they actually did bring in or have private workouts with a lot of the guys they've drafted, players such as Aldon, James, Kaepernick, Jenkins...etc. I still think you'll see at least a couple more players that they've been in very close contact with, guys like Travis Kelce, Duke Williams,Josh Evans..etc
