I have decided that I will not even turn on the TV tomorrow. I will find out what happens when I get home tomorrow afternoon. If I watch I may get an ulcer.

You are correct! While all of the folks who didn't vote for Orakpo can still gripe, the many who voted for him should tone down their criticisms of the FO for now. The FO got them their boy.

I know his combine numbers don't wow you but he makes plays on the field where it counts. 3rd Orakpo he can rush the passer , may take him some time to learn how to drop back into coverage as a LB.
Wow Rey fell to the 2nd round to the Bengals. Well he can play with his former USC teammate Keith Rivers. I happy with Brian Orakpo the Beast.

Well it wasn't a smoke screen it was the Jets giving up much more than we were willing to part with. I guess the Jason Taylor 2nd rd pick may have saved us. VC said they tried to move up. We got saved by the Jets and also thank you AL Davis for your pick, which allowed the 49ers to pick a offensive player. This allowed Orakpo to fall to us.

The FO is on the record as saying that they inquired about moving up for Sanchez. Just about every other team did this as well as part of due diligence so it wasn't a big deal. The FO also said that they really had their hearts set on Orakpo all along.

So, yes, the Sanchez stuff was a smokescreen.

First, pulling off a smoke screen is a separate skill set than drafting good players, so your comment doesn't make a lot of sense logically.

Second, hard to say whether the 3rd round pick was dumb till preseason rolls around. Probably will compete with Tryon, and if he hits like the one video showed, might be awesome on the STs.
