So now that the preseason is underway and we start to see who/what we have.... I thought I'd step back and look at those we may have lost. I'll simply refer to them from this point on as The Forgotten...
Members of The Forgotten:
DE Everette Brown - 1 GM, 1 Tkl, Sack
CB Sean Smith - 1 GM, 1 Tkl, Int
OLB Clint Sintim - 1 GM, 1.5 Tkl, Sack
OLB Connor Barwin - 1 GM, 1 Tkl, Sack, PD
Since there was such a huge split among 49ers fans about that trade, I think it will be interesting (hopefully not too controversial) to track the progress of these players throughout the season and see whether it was worth the risk to wait a year to get another prospect. Obviously we will erase the numbers once the season starts, but until then we will track The Forgotten....
(Please post if you feel someone has been left off this list, but this was the consensus "short list" that I remember from draft day)
