Upside Down Future

The 49ers have been gathering players from the top of the Draft for seven of the past eight years. Those plumb pickings will not be seen again for many, many years. I’d like to say they’ll never be seen again,

Split Decision

The 49ers have drafted in the top eleven for seven straight years, six of which they actually drafted there, or will, and one of which Bill Belichick drafted there while they took Kentwan Balmer down near the bottom of the

Seventh Round Knockout
