Ron Johnson: good faith pick by Baalke after WR coach Morton vouched for him. Lost Doug Baldwin to Seattle cause of it
Everyone knew about it after the draft. Harbaugh said publicly that it was between him and baldwin and they still tried to sign baldwin as UDFA but he went to seattle instead.
They literally only picked Ron Jon because Morton coached him at USC and it was decision meant to show that Harbaugh/Baalke would listen/trust their assistants.
