Grade the job 49ers' GM Trent Baalke has done so far

Grade the job 49ers' GM Trent Baalke has done so far

I would give him a B+ no matter how we finish. If i'm grading the whole collection of Balke Harbaugh and Jed that's a for sure A.

This year's draft class is looking very good, however last year was not so good. Anthony Davis and definitely Taylor May has not lived up to their draft status.

If I were to grade just this year, it would be A+.


I think Anthony Davis is getting better.
I think he's done pretty well. This years draft class seems like it has a lot of guys panning out. Even late round guys and undrafted guys.
Gotta give A-, not just the draft but off season FA pickup, last year we were working off Scotty not to hottys preliminary board.
B+

Anthony Davis is still young, and he got bullied by Singletary in drafting Taylor Mays.

Isn't this his first year as GM?

How can we blame him for things if he wasn't in charge? For all we know he was begging Singletary and McCloughan not to draft Mays.

Baalke was part of the 2010 draft

Agree. Great job so far

Could not have said it any better
Thru the first 6 games an A-. Harbaugh gets a solid A.
Lets be realistice, he has done a good minus job, which is a B-.

Drafting taylor mays in the second knocks you out of excellent range.

Signing so many players to one year contracts also can never put you in the excellent range. Now if Carlos Roger, Braylon Edwards where locked up for 2-3 years, then he would bump up to B+/A- range.

drafts and PS looking good so far.

Whats the point we all know what he will say...

Insert backhanded compliment then quickly turn to next offseasons free agents + one year contracts and talk about how that will be the measuring stick of his tenure... even though every off season has an avalanche of free agents (see: last offseason) and every team gave out an abnormally high amount of one year contracts due to the lockout, making the market once again flooded. Some teams will identify "their guy" and overpay, while others will once again let the market dictate value.

The best part is not overpaying last offseason allowed the niners to see who excels in the current systems and now the team can reward players like Rogers, and Goldson so far with big contracts because they proved their worth within the system. It also helps the franchises culture of rewarding their own players, rather than spending big money on big names in new schemes.
