Chris Culliver? And of course there is Marcus Cooper which we drafted at the very end of the 7th round that's turned out to be a pretty solid player. And another 7th rounder, Phillip Adams has carved out a nice career so far. I don't really see any other examples of CBs we drafted during the Baalke regime that turned out to be busts.
As for WRs, we drafted AJ Jenkins in the 1st (late), Quenton Patton in the 4th Ronald Johnson and Kyle Williams both in the 6th round. Yeah AJ Jenkins was a bust, but Quenton Patton is still an unknown, and you can't seriously hold 6th round picks against Baalke, they're sixth round picks for a reason. The fact that they struck out on Jenkins doesn't in itself mean they suck at drafting WRs!
No, it DOES mean we are suck in drafting WRs actually !! There is no point living in denial, facts are facts. Stop this only late 1st round, 4th round, 6th round business. I am sick and tired of hearing such BS excuses. Don't tell me, one can only suck if they pick a bust in high 1st. It is what it is until the 9ers can prove otherwise. Oh and before Ronald Johnson it was the beloved Kyle Williams.
We do suck at drafting WR. They really should be better at it. I hate bringing up the 2012 draft class but I was hoping for Alshon Jeffrey at WR and was shocked as most of us were when I heard AJ JEnkins. WR has been a problem in our drafts.Since TO was drafted we drafted Ryan Thelwell, Tai Streets, Cedrick Wilson, Brandon Lloyd, Arnaz Battle, Rashaun Woods, Derrick Hamilton, Rasheed Marshall, Marcus Maxwell, Brandon Williams, Jason Hill, Josh Morgan, Michael Crabtree, Kyle Williams, Ronald Johnson, A.J. Jenkins and Quinton Patton. Ugh. Throwout Crabtree and Patton because Crabtree was a no brainer and we dont know what exactly we have in Patton and you see the problems there. Hey my services are offered to the team if they need help evaluating wr.lol. but seriously I think they really need to look at how they evaluate WR coming out of college.
