Substitute Gholston with Aldon Smith. Now imagine our defense.
Both were #6 picks. Obviously you have to give credit to the 49ers for taking the right player and give blame to the Jets for taking the wrong one. But, they were both roundly considered the appropriate pick in their respective slots. Its not like the 49ers did anything that any of us here couldn't have done. One panned out. One didn't.
Anyone know what Vernon Gholston is doing these days? Apart from him morning swim in his money bin.
