The draft is done and gone. The 49ers ended up with 11 selections, more than many of us anticipated. Baalke worked hard to accumulate picks for the highly-regarded 2014 draft. There's really not much to complain about. All of our major needs were filled, some steals were stolen and both 2013 and the future look extremely bright. Here's a look at what people are saying about it on Twitter.
There's not much order to it. Overall comments on the class are at the top with tweets on the individual picks coming a bit farther down. If you want reaction to our first-round selection, Eric Reid, click here.
Oh 49ers you've done me proud - first drafting Marcus lattimore then signing Lawrence Okoye... Brilliant— Alex Coker (@Alex_Coker) April 28, 2013
I felt b4 the draft the #49ers were happy with the O for the most part, the D was gonna get a lot deeper! Kind of shocked no CB in mid Rds— isaac lunger (@isaacl6718) April 28, 2013
And the #49ers select Quinton Patton. San Francisco is getting away w murder people: Reid, Tank Carradine, Vance McDonald + Lemonier already— Joe Everett (@RookieDraft) April 27, 2013
Look at some of the draft grades for #49ers later picks. Lemonier and Patton are both steals, and at positions of need. Love it.— Aaron Malone (@GafflezMalone) April 28, 2013
Let me go back to football.. Btw Niners have to two steals in the draft out of the top 10: Tank Carradine and Marcus Lattimore— ✊AJ (@_NIUATOA) April 29, 2013
So we turned our backup QB into Tank Carradine and a 2014 3rd rounder.I wanted Ertz but I would never question you Trent #BaalkeWeTrust— Daryl Hanman (@darylhanman1) April 26, 2013
I'm happy the 49ers got Tank Carradine he was a 1st round talent before he got hurt— Jesse Soto (@OchoSoto) April 26, 2013
Vance McDonald has a ton of experience with the pistol and lining up in the backfield. Easy transition to the 49ers offense.— Oscar (@49WZ_Oscar) April 27, 2013
TE Vance McDonald said the 49ers came out of left field to take him. He just talked a couple of times to a scout during the draft process.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) April 27, 2013
God damn San Francisco. Really? Tank Carradine, Vance McDonald, Corey Lemonier and Quinton Patton? I'm buying a 9ers jersey.— Chris Kouffman (@ckparrot) April 27, 2013
The Super Bowl runner-up and most talented team in the league comes away w Eric Reid, Tank Carradine, Vance McDonald, Corey Lemonier #shiver— Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) April 27, 2013
Have you recovered from that Lattimore pick, 49ers fans? Spritz some water on your face because SF is close to picking in the fifth ...— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) April 27, 2013
49ers select Corey Lemonier, OLB Auburn. team really beefing up its pass rush.— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) April 27, 2013
#QuintonPatton was probably the most underrated WR in the draft to me that boy smashed so many CB in the Senior Bow!— Don E. Thomas II (@dtfor6) April 29, 2013
Marcus Lattimore was a steal for a 4th round pick for the 49ers guys a first rounder if he didnt have his knee messed up best rb In college— Mark O'Kelly-Lynch (@MarkOkellylynch) April 29, 2013
Adversity introduces a man to himself. Marcus Lattimore— Tim McConville (@TuckFim) April 29, 2013
It'll be difficult for any player taken in sixth and seventh rounds to make 49ers' roster, whether it's CB or any other position.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) April 27, 2013
Just ran into 49ers GM Trent Baalke and personnel man Joel Patten looking very relaxed. Were they busy the last few days or something?— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) April 29, 2013
