Aaron Rogers- Chico

Tom Brady- San Mateo
Exactly, and you can't forget the kid who just broke all the 49ers defensive records, Marshawn Lynch. The bills were giving him away a few years ago.
Obviously not everyone will be a perfect fit but when you continually pass on talent in your backyard, only to get burned, you'd think something would change. I know DeSean has had his issues but would you rather have him right now or the two guys the 49ers took over him, Kentwan Balmer and Chilo Rachel?
