That was an odd draft. The 49ers had the top pick and were choosing between the two top QBs on the board, Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers. Smith was ruined by a poor team with poor coaching and was injured a lot until Jim Harbaugh took over. Rodgers had a long wait to go when he went (Bills having traded their 1st round pick to get Losman the year before) and sat behind a HOFer for years until he played his way in and Favre out.
