Rather, I think Baalke was so right
about this pick... That pick demonstrated very impressive scouting...
The Colin Jones, Mike Person, and Daniel Kilgore picks were also panned by many and all are turning out to be solid, if not excellent picks.
The signings of Carlos Rogers, Dante Whitner, CJ Spillman, Larry Grant, Blake Costanzo, and Tavares Gooden also raised many eyebrows at the time....not so much now as all have made significant contributions.
Turns out that Baalke really does know how to put together a great NFL roster. He should really win Executive of the Year....and it shouldn't even be close.
The only mistake the Baalke / Harbaugh team made in the draft / FA period was not getting WR Doug Baldwin from Stanford, who is now thriving with Seattle. With so many good decisions made by this team, one has got to have more confidence that Kaep will indeed end up being a really good NFL QB.
