It's another reason why I'm really excited about McDonald. Everyone wanted Ertz.. including myself.. and everyone i'm sure was like "who's this guy?" "Rice?" but Balkee and Harbaugh liked this guy better and i'm excited to see him play
I didn't want Ertz, and I'm excited for McDonald. But Baalke and Harbaugh wanted Ertz more I believe. It's just that he wasn't on the board any longer
They passed on ertz... that tells you all they thought about him.
^^ I agree with this. Of all prospects, one could never say that Ertz was a guy who escaped their scrutiny. Same with Fleener the year before. I can understand the local boy fever that overcomes many on the 'zone, but sentimentality in the front office would be a real weakness if the Niners were to subcumb to it.
They didn't care for either player as a high pick, obviously.
