“I don’t think he would have fit in out in San Francisco, and he even said he didn’t like it out there,” .... So then why in the hell would we want to draft some guy who isn't going to be happy from day one?
Unless Bulaga provides an actual NAME on who told him he'd be selected, it's just BS, IMO. Singletary and/or Baalke have already stated they had three OL that would've been drafted: Williams, Davis and Iupati. Williams was selected early, so he was out. Then, when Davis dropped out of top 10, the Niners moved up to make sure he wasn't going anywhere else. Finally, Iupati fell right to them w/ no additional moves.
No where in any of that was Bulaga's name mentioned as one of their possible selections. So, I think he's making this story up...unless he goes on record and gives names.

Read the article that Barber links to.
Quote: “I don’t think he would have fit in out in San Francisco, and he even said he didn’t like it out there,” Brucker said. “And he didn’t like New York City. That’s why I think he went to school at Iowa. He’s just a middle-of-the-country type of kid.”
