Just out of curiousity, did the 9ers contact first rd picks 5-15 before draft day to see if any of them were drafted by us that they would indeed sign? Remember the Texans and Mario Williams instead of Reggie Bush, because the Texans knew Bush would not sign. Did we do any pre draft contacting like that, or did we just trust everything to luck?
To not do the above is not neglicence, it is stupidity, and results in the 9ers having the only unsigned first rounder in the nfl. That is an award we do not wish to have. Is anyone in our front office---scot, jed---still alive and able to actually manage a team , or are they on auto pilot, hoping that things just work out?
umm.. i do believe the texans drafted williams because pass rushers with that size and speed are A LOT harder to come by than RBs.. and oh, by the way, look at bush's career. i guess they knew a little something extra. im just saying, i dont think they passed on bush because of money reasons.
