Tre's note: Since there has been some confusion (ahem, Smileyman, DrewK...) about the purpose of this post...Please create a starting lineup of ONLY PLAYERS DRAFTED BY THE 49ERS (or signed as Un Drafted Free Agents)
Mike Sando was kind enough to provide me with a list of current 49ers players who were drafted by the team. I thought it was interesting when I looked at the list, just how young and talented this group of guys was.
It's also interesting to remind ourselves when and where some of our current players were drafted, like Dashon Goldson in the 4th round of 2007, Eric Heitmann in the 7th round of 2002. These are key starters who are arguably going to get some pro-bowl consideration if all goes well in 2010.
Lastly, projecting my variation of the starting offense would have Eric Heitmann as the oldest player at 30, followed by Frank Gore at 26 (as of today). This is a heck of a core the 49ers have built.
After the jump I'll post the list of 49ers draftees still with the team. My idea is to create your own starting lineup using just the guys drafted by the 49ers (below). Since the 49ers aren't huge into free agency (a sign that they like their draft picks and do a pretty decent job of it, at least lately) this kinda gives us a view into the potential future of the team's makeup.
