San Francisco 49ers receive highest draft grade in NFC West


Seven rounds and 256 players later, the 2014 NFL Draft is finally complete. As the dust settles, it’s time to assess how each team fared during the league’s annual selection meeting.

Some went all in, seemingly mortgaging their future for the player they wanted this year (see Buffalo). Others were able to wheel and deal their way to multiple high-profile picks (see St. Louis and Cleveland). While a few appeared as though they’d prefer to trade down rather than make any selections (see Seattle).

Which was the right approach? Time will tell. But, to see how things look just days removed from the end of the draft, and the grade for every NFC team, click here.

    49ers do the impossible, they make their roster even stronger & deeper. They still have not address their weakness. The coaching staff.
    With all these players on offense, why is the offense so bad in the red zone, scoring & passing offense. After three seasons with this coaching staff, the offense system needs a major overhaul. In 4 seasons its been about play safe & not score points.
    It is hard to see this season being any different.
    You will see a FB on the field, no spread the defense with a 3 wr. No way Crabtree or Boldin will come off the field. Looking at the snap counts of the last three seasons you will see Gore, Davis, Boldin & Crabtree. With the way Harbaugh loves FB, Miller will be on the field a big part of the time.
    Thus Johnson, Hyde, Lattimore, Ellington will join Hunter, James, Patton & MacDonald on the bench watching the game.

    Seattle plays with the love for each other like we used to. That’s impressive in this day and age. I’m afraid the only way to beat Seattle is if Seattle beats themselves. Their is a good possibility of that happening relatively speaking. (Right??)
