Your Worst Niner Draft Pick Of All Time

Your Worst Niner Draft Pick Of All Time

Stokes.

He was a so-so player who played for a few years and didn't do too bad. He had the value of a mid range pick, say a 4th rounder.

But he cost us TWO first rounders, both, iirc, mid-to-high.

All the others only cost is one. And a late one in most cases.
Glenn coffee. Guy didn't even wanna play football that's a horrible draft pick from top to bottom.

Dexter Carter and J.J. Stokes don't belong on this list. They not only made the team, but they contributed for years.

Israel Ifeanyi and Reggie McGrew did nothing, and they were second and first round picks, respectively. They should make the list.

Oh ya, and you forgot Balmer.

Todd Shell for the five seconds he was healthy, was pretty good, but his body couldn't take all the roids.

I would go Druckenmiller first with Woods a close second.

The pick Cleveland received in order for the team to move up was none other than

That's what makes it so painful
Kentwan Balmer and it aint even close
Has to be taking Carmazzi over Brady
How is AJ leading this? Lol I think it shows the age of all the newer fans. IMO it's gotta be a guy who set the franchise back, not a luxury pick like AJ. Gave up allot for Stokes but it still didn't hurt the franchise so much. Balmer was a straight headcase he gets my vote.

It's between Woods, McGrew, and Jenkins. All were first round picks who washed out quickly with minimal contribution. Reggie McGrew was pretty disappointing, but at least he stuck around for three years and played in some games.

Woods and Jenkins are remarkably similar. Both were receivers picked at the bottom of the first round (Jenkins #30, Woods #31) who were too soft to play in the NFL. They both left the 49ers in a "swap of first round busts" trade.

But Jenkins' complete lack of production is historic. Also, I can't think of another player for whom the door of opportunity was so wide open (great team, great coaches, redshirted his first year, spends offseason being tutored by the starting QB, #1 WR gets hurt, coaches spoon feed him chances in practice and in preseason).

Granted, the front office is different now than in Woods' time and Donahue probably would've kept Jenkins around for three years rather than admit a mistake. Still, Jenkins has no excuses, no mitigating circumstances, and absolutely no stats. Number one all time bust.

You hit and you miss, but don't want consecutive drafts of misses because of the effect it will have on a franchise for years.

Kwame Harris??!!
