Re-Grading the San Francisco 49ers' Past 5 Drafts

The 2014 NFL draft is fast approaching. Player analysis is wrapped up and boards are set, which makes this a perfect time for reflection. For the San Francisco 49ers, who have had an interesting history over the past half decade, it's good to see where they've hit and where they've missed.

For this piece, we'll backtrack five years, re-evaluating the picks and providing grades per class.

Grades will be impacted by value according to round—whether it's high or low—as well as position importance. Trade-ups, moving back or sitting tight and having someone fall into their lap will also play a factor. How they maneuver up and down and who they wind up with matters a great deal because that apparent movement is to be credited or not.

There will also be an element of randomness by the author here, as a few of the recent classes are yet to be seen in their entirety.
