So what. The niners had willis, why draft bowman? The niners had willis and bowman why pick up grant? Gore and hunter why james? Moss/crabs/manninham/ginn/Williams whydraft Jenkins? I can do this all day.
You draft the player you think will be the best with very few exceptions. They have an old center who will need to be replaced and got a few guys who can do that. If persons can play T well then he becomes the backup and boone becomes an emergency T. If person can't than boone is the backup and persons is the emergency. If harbaugh let's draft position affect a decision like this he is going it wrong.
Because TKO was old and we needed a replacement.
Grant was already on the roster, released, and brought back in a backup role.
Gore and Hunter-I do not know why James unless Dixon will be cut because he hasn't been great at running the ball....and Gore is almost done.
Why Jenkins...because Ginn, Williams, Moss, and Manningham are on short contracts or the last year of their contract. Even Crabs is getting close to contract time.
You draft players who can start or start soon, bringing in 4 OL (3 interior guys) in 2 years and having none of them lock down the RG spot is sad. If Boone was the answer we should've looked for OT's to take his spot in the transition....we didnt. We could've packaged the picks and gotten 1-2 players that were better in every category.
You cant keep throwing s**t at the wall and hope it sticks. Should we draft another 2 OL next year in hopes one of them step us and beats the other 5 we drafted?
