Since everyone is talking about how our GM has to be a great talent evaluator, let's see what Ninersnation thinks of last year's draft picks. After a full season I thinbk some things can be said about the players we chose without being too speculative. So how would you evaluate his draft selections (assuming he was making the call and/or agreeing with the call). And how were the picks when compared with who else we could have chosen in a position of need at the same spot?
I'm thinking moving up for Anthony Davis was not a good call. I like him as a player, but we had a lot of good choices staying where we were, including Buluga and Pouncey.
How about passing on Colt McCoy in a later round?
We also picked up Blount as a free agent but ket him go when he wanted to sign elsewhere. What kind of decision was that? And who made it? If we thought he had talent, why let him go?
Or do you think our draft was great, and therefore Baalke's current evaluation of talent is a perfect fit for us?
Of course, this is assuming he made all the picks, or agreed with them.
What do you think overall about his skills as a talent evaluator?
