wtf? no

wtf?yes

WHY, because its still too early......nevermind I explained it in my other post.

I guess you're right, just a matter of time before Looney and Cam Johnson become all pros. I apologize.

I know you were being sarcastic, but I would be surprised if Cam even made the team the way Lemon and Haralson have come on. In addition, Whilote and Moody look promising on the inside. Plus, doesn't Cam have sickle cell or something?

I voted D-
LMJ is the only quality player from the draft. Out of 7 picks, that is abysmal. Missing on the round 1 pick hurts the most.

Aj Jenkins- gons
Slowy-gone
Fleming- injured
Johnson- will be gone maybe on PS
Funny looking back on this thread so much love for pretty much guys that are NOT even on this team anymore, how things quickly change in a year span.Can go down as probably the WORST draft class in 49ers history

See ya Cam

LMJ and Looney

Safe to say this draft no higher than a D
I gave it a D
D+.

F would be a complete failure, D would be value for the player, and LMJ is a special talent that isn't like anyone we currently have, so D+.

I don't think we'll ever see Looney as a starter.
It's funny that this class had good votes in 2012. Now we can see it was almost worthless. How many players are still here? Two? Three?

Draft boondoggle to the maximum. They would have been better off trading picks from 2012 draft for future picks as no players are contributing.

Lets hope LMJ can make it as a pro.

Looney is still a ???

The first round pick still hurts the most. So many talented players that where passed up. Water under the bridge.
There's nothing left to grade
Pretty horrible. Although if we had hit on our AJ pick (which now will be judged by what Jon Baldwin does) it would have been an average draft. One must remember that we were not only picking at the end of each round, but we also had no 3rd round pick. LMJ sometimes looks electric, sometimes looks terrible. Looney is still an unknown since it was hard to evaluate him being around such terrible olinemen this preseason. Fleming tore his knee up twice, hard to blame the team for missing that one. Cam looked solid this preseason and netted us a future pick. So while it was terrible, it was really missing out on AJ that turned an average draft into a bad one. However, we added capital from that draft into 2013 which also should be noted and one reason why our 2013 draft looks to be a huge hit.
No wonder the 49ers let Tom Gamble leave. Yech!!!
I gave it a C just now.

Generous maybe, but if LMJ can approximate a Sproles, all is not lost on that draft.
All that is left is James and Looney. Then UDFA's Jerod-Eddie and Celek. Hampton and Thomas on the PS. Also, depends if you get technical or not but like I said I believe we used 6th from trading down in 2012 draft to get Moody this year. Also, traded Jenkins for Baldwin. And then whoever the 7th becomes for Johnson. So depends on if you are grading just rounds 1-7 or UDFA and trades. Until James, Looney, Jerod-Eddie, Celek, Hampton, Thomas, Baldwin, Moody and the 7th for Johnson are off the team the 2012 class in my opinion isn't done. Not to mention our 3rd in 2012 we traded down and used to move up this year for Eric Reid. Like I said if we don't have that we trade our 3rd we used for Lemonier to get Reid. So either no Reid or no Lemonier.
Awful. How can people claim Baalke is such a mastermind with a draft if he threw up a dud like this as recently as last year? (for the record, I think his 2013 draft was A+)
