in the 2014 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers select…….
I have absolutely no idea. History and those with the ability to voice an opinion claim the 49ers will trade up. Those same people recite wide receiver and cornerback as the areas of the highest probability of being General Manager, Trent Baalke’s, first pick. Myself, I don’t play that game.
Some accredit the following quote to Abraham Lincoln: “better to remain silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.” I’ll maintain the perception of a fool. Playing the mock draft game is a slippery slope that guys like Toddy McShay and Mel Kiper Jr. do for a proper living, and there’s no doubt they’re both fools.
What I do know is this. Unequivocally, this is the pinnacle of the NFL off season. With the NFL Draft, the 49ers are molding and tutoring their own guys. It’s a hit or miss process that tantalizes the minds of fans across all 32 fan bases. Like I’ve mentioned in the past, this is the one off season event that, more than likely, will help boost the 49ers into continued relevance for years to come. Perform well in the NFL Draft consistently, sustainability as a good, even great, organization is almost a certainty. It’s an event that can push the San Francisco back into the land of Lombardi.
So with the most intricate step in maintaining a storied franchise on the horizon, follow along with us over the next few days as the San Francisco 49ers attempt to connect on another successful NFL Draft.
