Grade the 49ers 2010 Draft [3 years later]

Davis - soon to be pro bowler
Iupati - All-Pro
Mays - Bust
Bowman - All-Pro
Dixon - Great ST and average RB
Byham - Did nothing
Williams - solid slot WR, good returner
Adams - ST player, still in league

To me, thats a pretty good draft. Yes, Mays was a 2nd round bust, but not all players are going to turn into HOF's. However we already have two all-pro's potentially 3. Thats a great draft. A+
Three pro bowlers in one draft is outstanding.

This article has our 2010 draft class rated #1.

If we had the best draft of the year, it seems reasonable to think our draft grade should be an A.
Thanks yet again Buck. Three pro-bowl caliber players, two solid role players and three guys still in the league with other teams is one heck of a draft. Then when you consider they had four picks in the top three rounds and no picks in rounds four and five...even more impressive. Blowing a second round pick is not unusual in the draft, so that should not be held against the team--and Mays is still in the NFL. From the article:

How did a 6'3 230 lb beast who runs a 4.4 bust? Smh shows you that meeasurables only matter if you have the stuff first, not the other way around.

Pete Carroll cost him major money by convincing him to come back to USC, guy would have been a top 5 pick had he come out a year earlier

If only...
With three starters who are considered to be in the upper echelon on their respected positions, and two solid contributors its a very good draft.
Pitty for the wasted Mays pick, but what do you want to do.
A because we got 3 Perennial Pro Bowlers in the first 4 picks
Excellent draft.

As far as picking a 2nd round bust - I agree he was but putting it into perspective look at al the 1st round busts every year.

How many 1st round busts were there in the 2010 draft - anyone know?
