Lifelong Gamecock & 49er here, so clearly a dream day for me. Someone asked if Marcus would have been a 1st round pick absent the injuries. He would have, without a doubt, been a top 10 pick, even after the rehab on following the original injury. A world-class organization, (thanks for getting it started right Eddie D!) is getting a world-class young man. Unbelievable work ethic, maturity & leadership. Quite possibly the best person to ever set foot on the Univ of SC campus, & I have been going to games in Columbia, SC since 1975. A better fit with Gore as a mentor could not have been found. Kudos to Coach Harbaugh & the rest of the staff for playing this one right. Nobody will be sorry with this pick. Kind of like a fine wine; just needs to decant & breathe a little. Maybe he can even straighten out Cully a little bit
Now lets go get that Lombardi trophy & put it with the rest where it belongs!
