Every thread turns into a talk #$@$ about Alex session, which is beyond comprehension due to the horrible way he was mismanaged for so many years, only to reach fantastic success when he finally had a good supporting cast. Alex is a class act and fans like this don't deserve a player of his caliber. Never mind the fact that Rodgers went over 20 picks later right?
The fact is that the 2005 draft was terrible. The best player at the time was likely Braylon Edwards, and we know how that turned out. NO ONE thought AR was the #1 pick. Was Alex worthy of a #1? Of course not, but is he even in the discussion for "worst Niner pick ever"? Absolutely not. He redeemed himself in 2011 and 2012 and all those that continue to bag on him should be ashamed of themselves.
My choice for this is Jim Drukenmiller. He was obviously a terrible fit for the WCO and just not a legit NFL QB prospect. Our scouting department in the late 90's was AWFUL.
