we got some nice players via the draft, but man did we pick alot of crap I didnt bother listing. we had 50 draft picks from 05-10, and only 22 are still here. 08 and 09 were awful...
I give Nolan and Sing a little credit for pushing the D in the right direction all those years, but its not hard to see why weve been struggling for so long. 08 and 09 netted us almost nothing. we didnt even keep Grant, we lucked into getting him back off the scrap heap.
Then you look at Harbaugh's draft, and he picked Aldon Smith, Chris Culliver, Kendall Hunter, and Bruce Miller, who were all immediate contributors, plus Kaepernick. Im excited to see a real football mind draft for the next several years. Were going to start hitting on alot more of our picks from here on out.
