Look I know I have hindsight that they didn't. The draft was strong on OL and S. Typically where you are deep there are no runs. But there definitely was a run on OLs and not at safeties.
Actually it is rare for 3 in a rows. Didn't happend Dalton/Kap or this year OT' 1,2 ... then 4.

Right. I should believe you because you know what you're talking about, and I shouldn't believe our front office because they are just clueless and only have access to every other GM, to every whisper, to every scout, to one-on-one interviews, and are actually talking about players with other teams. Makes sense!
Harbaugh and Baalke? Yeah, they don't know what they're doing. You do though. Riiiiight.
Never said I knew more. AND I HAVE THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. And didn't imply, I would have done better, or even done anything different.
(ps I love guys who cheapshot and don't put their thoughts out there for review )
I'm not really faulting them. They obviously felt that getting Reid was key. And no they don't have a crystal ball, so your are right. Good move given the situation. I am just not happy with the result. I really can't buy he wouldn't have been there at 31. And they could not have known.
Suffice to say don't like the result, happy with their draft decision. Not the same thing.
If Reid isn't significantly better than the other available safeties.... I won't be the only one grumbling here.
