Woods. At least Balmer got on the field.
Scotty is killing me with this Balmer s**t. DeSean was there... twice.
were we the only team to pass on him? hindsights 20/20
No we weren't, but take this in consideration.
• DeSean's mentor? Jerry Rice.
• Where did DeSean play? Cal Berkley (kinda geographically convenient to scout often)
• The 49ers' needs that year? WR, RT, WEAK ILB, OLB for pass rush
So tell me, why did we draft Kentwan Balmer? To play nose? To shore up on the d-line? I know Balmer fell a good number of spots and we weren't expecting him to be there, but there was probably a good reason for that.
I wouldn't call Rice his mentor.
I believe Rice was trying to recruit him to DeBartolo's sporting agency.
Still, having Rice in your corner? Call the GOAT up and ask him about DeSean
