    I remember wanting Carlos Hyde badly when it was clear we were going to take the 1st RB off the board. We got stankey. Carlos is leagues ahead of him, although has had some injury woes recently. But prior to that he was great.

    Yeah...I was really big on Jeremy Hill....Now, Jeremy has had some fumbleitus, but he is leagues above Sankey...as is Hyde....Granted, it wasn't the best RB class...but the Sankey pick is a head scratcher. He has been outright terrible.

    Never take a college RB who has 600 carries in 2 seasons... that's just dumb

    I don't see Hyde doing much in SF this year. Chips offense doesn't fit him.

    Maybe so...but at least he can contribute...Sankey can't even return kicks and was the #1 Rb taken in the draft....Dude isn't even start worthy....I am pretty sure most all of us would have been grateful for production out of Sankey like Hill or Hyde. Sankey straight sucks! No way around it.

    1998 - We took Dyson at #16 overall and Randy Moss went at #21. We were scared away by 'character' concerns.

    1988 - We took Lorenzo White at #22 overall over the Houston native Thurman Thomas who went at #40. We had injury concerns about Thomas.

    These 2 picks show just how significant one draft pick can be in shaping the destiny of a team. What is the lesson learned? Don't choose the safe pick. You have to be willing to take a risk to obtain greatness.
