BTW it was the only "A" they gave out. (A few "A-" but no other "A"s)
Long time reader, but first post here!
It's really nice to see the contingent of 49ers fans slowing coming up and supporting our team. True, it was luck that Crabtree fell to us at 10th; but it was our lack of pick in the 2nd round which in my opinion, earned us such a high grade among other football fans across the country. Trading that 2nd round pick for a player we really didn't have a roster slot for, Everette Brown would have been nice; but I'm glad we decided on building Manny and Parys. Solid picks with McKillop, Coffee, and Davis definitely don't hurt us either.
I can't wait for the 2010 draft, as with two first round picks, we'll be in a prime position to get a few more blue-chip players in what is widely regarded as a much deeper draft.
Very nice job by the 49ers management; I know it's just a sportsnation grade, but it's nice to see regardless.
