What talent have the 49ers really added in the past couple years?

I mentioned that last week. Where the Phuck was Harbaugh during that draft??? And even Doug Baldwin was in Harbaugh's LAP and they found a way to miss BOTH!!!!!?????? I do like Cully BUT Sherman has turned into the better Pro so far. Baldwin has produced as much as any 49er WR this post season wow an UNDRAFTED STREET FA???? Who is the Seachicken scouts??

Harbaugh wanted Baldwin, the 49ers however basically let John Morton pick his guy out of USC since he vouched for him.


Sherman was never going to end up with the 49ers, not with the reported issues between him and Harbaugh, I also doubt he'd be even close to the same player with the way the 49ers cornerback's play.

Chris Culliver picked by San Francisco 49ers in third round of 2011 draft

Richard Sherman drafted by Seattle Seahawks in fifth round of 2011 draft

You act like Harbaugh had no idea who Richard Sherman was... the problem is that Harbaugh knew him all too well. Who knows exactly what happened between them but it is pretty obvious they didn't have a great relationship and that type of thing causes locker room cancers.

Sherman also had a 4.54 at the combine... Culliver had a 4.40.

Lastly, don't be foolish. Sherman as a 49er would never be allowed to grab, hold, and pass interfere to make up for his lack of speed. We'd probably talk so much s**t about him because he couldn't cover anyone without the refs turning a blind eye to his "style"

Lattimore may turn out to be a good player, but I don't think he has a chance to be the top RB in the league. Lattimore is not as physical as AP.
Our biggest problem with developing young receivers is Kapernick. Kap doesn't look to get our young receivers the ball. Kapernick stares down and force the ball to certain receivers. With Harbaugh being a former QB I can't believe he put up with this from Kap.
This is the year in the draft that we'll all see how good this administration is. IMO the main nucleus of the team was build before Harbaugh and Co. came into the league. This draft we have to hit impact players big time in the first 3-4 rounds. If we don't we are going to be set back big time in the coming years. We need to get younger a bit and a lot faster.
Enough talent to win. But for some reason we just can't get over the hump.

Sure this is the biggest concern, no doubt, couldn't have anything to do with the offensive scheme..

It is tough to put up with a winning QB and fantastic locker room presence as a leader, tough as hell...

He puts up with it, because out of all the elite quarterbacks in the NFL, Kap is the only one who gives us a chance to beat Seattle.

It's clearly the scheme that's holding our WRs back. People have very selective memories. Even before Kap was QB, we hardly got our WRs involved. It was a constant complaint on this forum.

I honestly think the scheme does not see the value in ball distribution. They don't see the value in making the defense think everyone on the field is a potential threat. They simplify down to getting the ball to 2 or 3 guys the vast majority of the time. Of course you want to get your best players the ball, but not at the expense of becoming predictable and dull. That's what we do, unfortunately.

Come on man. Everybody likes the possibilities but stop being rediculous.....

It's a valid point. We could be the perennial bridesmaids. It's not so far fetched. If we can't play 4 quarters of consistent football, you can't say we're going to be favored in the playoffs.

Nobody is. AP is one of those once in a generation guys who is headed for first ballot HOF. They don't grow on trees. But that doesn't meen Lats can't be a top RB.

We kind of are the Eagles. You realize we went to 3 NFC Championship games already and came away with NOTHING. They went to 4 of them and came away with nothing. Like us they slid through to the Super Bowl once. And get nothing there either. We are the Eagles.
GTFO

So that's 19 players, that are either starters or major contributors / future contributors to our team, found in the last three years.

Harbaugh explained the facts of life that he would never make it as a diva WR. So he switched his position so now he is a diva DB.

Sherman seemed to never get over it. If he actually was smart he would realize that without JH, he would never have gotten into standford and never would have been a DB.
