Let’s keep things in the proper perspective: the San Francisco 49ers—and the NFC West in general for that matter— enjoyed the best draft overall as a division.

Yet, some did better than others, with San Francisco ultimately drafting in a superior fashion than its rival counterparts. St. Louis came in a very close second while Arizona and Seattle earned third and fourth, respectively.

Here’s why the Red and Gold received the highest marks.
