Poor GMs reach for needs. 49ers will draft BPA in 1st round. We reached to fill WR position couple years ago and it came back to bite us.
For now, we are STACKED at DE. I'd rather for a need-based BPA instead.
In general you don't know whether we reached for AJ. It comes down to the evaluation by Baalke. And like we know, the Rams would have picked him with their 2nd-rounder and it was a high one, iirc.
Jumping two picks to get a nice Safety is a good job though.
