We all have regrets in life and when we reflect on those regrets we often ask what were we thinking. For example, did I really date him/her or,did I just waste three hours of my life and watch Titanic for the third time? Regrets are also made by our favorite football teams on draft days. The San Francisco 49ers, who are often praised for the draft picks, have made a few mistakes. One of the biggest blunder was picking Jim Druckenmiller with their First Round pick in 1997. Druckenmiller is easily the worse pick in 49ers history and below are the reason why and also what players they missed out on that could have propelled their franchise to a few more championships.Jim Druckenmiller came into the draft with some hype backing him. First of all he was at Virginia Tech, where he played in a pro-style offense under the tutelage of Hall of Fame coach Frank Beamer. Also, Druckenmiller's completion percentage while in Blacksburg was well over 50%, so there was a lot to like about him. ...

The trade was delayed because Boldin was over in Senegal for a relief trip.
The 49ers made out like bandits to only have to give up a 6th round pick for Boldin....

Kicking was an issue for the San Francisco 49ers last season; surprising considering that they had one of the best in the game, David Akers, on the roster. Every player--kickers including--eventually have a fall from grace. Maybe last season was it for Akers.
Anyway...rather than go with an untested rookie or nobody the team ended up tabbing another older veteran to take over...
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is in high demand right now. And I’m not just talking about potential endorsement deals and club promoters. The ladies are interested in him too. And as usual, when a jocks star rises, the body count of the ladies does too. Take this story of an alleged hook up gone wrong. A young lady met Colin, I’m assuming via a social network. Per the...
The Anquan Boldin fallout continues to rain. When Boldin was traded from the Baltimore Ravens to the San Francisco 49ers, it was not a popular move in the locker room or in the fan base.

The 49ers on Tuesday welcomed wide receiver Marlon Moore to the family on a one-year contract. Try to contain your excitement.
Moore, 25, spent the last three seasons in Miami, where he played primarily in coverage units on special teams. The Niners are expected to use him in the same capacity, though the possibility is open that he could be seen returning kicks.
By trade, Moore...

After a nightmarish year of kicking with the now-departed David Akers, the 49ers have found their kicker.

Or so he says. The Niners haven’t confirmed the signing yet.
Dawson, unable to contain his excitement for going from a cellar dweller to a title contender, tweeted the news Tuesday afternoon. An exclamation point was used:
I am humbled...
