San Francisco 49ers Final Draft Report Card

Both DT Kentwan Balmer and guard Chilo Rachal, the clubs' first and second selections, are future stars, while DS Reggie Smith (not top speed) and WR Josh Morgan (big, fast, but unpolished) are future starters with good skill sets. Offensive center Cody Wallace is just a tough over achiever.

In Michael Crabtree, the 49ers drafted the top receiving prospect since Randy Moss with the 10th pick in the draft. Glen Coffee, Scott McKillop and Bear Pascoe were all sound selection and although I like Nate Davis' skill set, I'm concerned about his ability to process information quickly. Ricky Jean Francois, has played in literally a handful of games over the past two season's (academics / injury), but when he's on his game (last year's SEC & National championship), he is absolutely very special. He has the ability to literally take over a game and is without question, a seventh round steal.
