Media effect on the draft?

I've always wondered if the countless mock drafts, and the countless draft discussions really effect what the actual selections will be on draft day. If you were a GM, or a head coach, and you were bombarded with "should draft" and "need to draft" on all sides by the media which in some fans eyes, has a very big say, some might feel they have a better say in what a team needs. Would you side with the media as a head coach because after months of this talk, even you are swayed?

Or maybe you want to draft that player/position because the fans are behind it and your popularity is on the line as they might not be a player that produces right away?

I know there are going to be many discussions of Crabtree, and our later draft picks for a while to come, but I want to put at least some diversity on Niners Nation!

What is your say on this? Have you even ever thought about this?
