OK, I really don’t care who they pick. I’m really more interested in what they pick with their first pick of the 2010 NFL draft.
Will it be a quarterback? A wide receiver? A running back? That’s really what’s important.
Readers of this blog will know from prior posts where I stand. The San Francisco 49ers need a quarterback. They continue to sign and trade for receivers as if the team has a receivers problem. Arnaz Battle wasn’t the problem. And Ted Ginn Jr. is not the answer.
Neither is David Carr.
Every problem with the 49ers offense — and I mean every problem — falls at the feet of Alex Smith. He’s a former No. 1 pick that’s not a No. 1 quarterback. That’s plain and simple to me.
No offense to Smith, but 2010-11 cannot be his year for the sake of my sanity. This year, like last year (and the year before that), the 49ers need to go in a different direction.
So what will it be? Jimmy Clausen (above) looks kinda sexy at No. 13 … or No. 17.
