All 49ers fans should have wanted us to pick up Owen Marecic, and he was basically the same kind of convert.
If you were around during draft time, many of us fans wanted the Niners to draft Marecic in the 4th round. He already played FB at Stanford, so he wasn't the same kind of convert that Miller was going to be. The Browns beat us to the punch on Marecic, but Miller looks like the better player on a better team.
