Was thinking the other day how over the last decade we have DRAFTED a goo player (or one with the potential to be a good player) in over half the rounds, but failed to have any success in other rounds. If I'm missing anyone for those rounds, please correct me.
1 -- Patrick Willis. The 3rd best 1st round pick this franchise has ever made.
2 -- Chilo Rachal. This is difficult because under the McCloughan regime we've only made two second round picks, but this one actually seems to have the potential to be very good.
3 -- Frank Gore.
4 -- this is the round we've had no success with
5 -- this is the other round we've had little success with. Hopefully McKillop changes this.
6 -- Josh Morgan. He's not a great player yet, of course. But he has shown enough to get excited about.
7 -- Eric Heitman. This is the only player on the list drafted outside of the McCloughan regime.
