Forgive me for being upset that we drafted a guy who would have likely been there 15 picks later. Fleener, Hill & Randle were still on the board. I wouldn't be surprised to see teams trade up and take those guys early tomorrow.
All I know is we have a bunch of #2 WRs already. If we want a WR, why not trade up and get a #1? Sure Jenkins could be a star, but why not at least maximize draft position? Baalke's answer is a cop out.
"Likely" is the key. Honestly of the players you mentioned Randle was the only guy I wanted... but if Harbaugh and Baalke both have this guy high on their board (which apparently they do) then why take the risk? IF its your pick and the player you want is available and clearly above anyone else thats available its foolish to take the chance that he will "Likely" be there 15 picks later. Obviosly the think that he is better than Randle, Hill and Fleener... time will tell, but its hard to argue with their track record.
In the end who cares when he was taken? The bottom line is will he produce? You can be upset... but its pointless.
