The NFL Draft is an exhilarating time for all fans. Without any true clairvoyance on how the picks that our favorite teams make will play out, we offer up our insights, excitement, disdain and worst of all, try to slap a grade on the entire process before the ink dries.
As far as Trent Baalke and the 49ers go, the results haven't been what he had hoped for in recent years.
The schism between Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers' front office combined with early player retirements have really cloaked the fact that the 49ers have been the worst team on getting return from draft weekend over the past five years.
No team has accumulated and made more picks than the 50 players the 49ers have selected, yet they rank 29th in return AV and dead last in return per pick (4.6). Nine of those 50 picks (18 percent) have yet to play a game in the NFL, the highest rate for any team over that span.
Baalke has loved to move around in the draft with little profit to date while foregoing players that have turned out to be NFL contributors.
Recent selections that have been picked with draft spots the 49ers have moved out of include T.Y. Hilton, Allen Robinson, Eddie Lacy, Travis Frederick, Theo Riddick and Charles Clay.
