Here is the article from Normal, Illinois paper the Pantagraph. Nice article about Boomer, it was actually on the front page of the print edition.

The most notable quote, beside the 49ers almost taking him day one was this, "They told me they have a lot of ambitions for me to be a big contributor on special teams. They have ambitions of me being a special teams captain," Grigsby said.

Good read, which is rare from the Pantagraph.

Something doesn't jive here. If the 9ers were interested in him early in the 3rd, how come they didn't get him in the 4th or early 5th when he still was available? :shrug:

I wondered the same thing. Did the 49ers maybe take another LB instead of Boomer, making their need for him obsolete?

They didn't take any LBs in this draft. They took Frank Gore and OL Adam Snyder in the 3rd, and DT Ronnie Fields in the 5th.

If this kid ends up being something special, the swapping of fifth rounders with the Phins will make Peterson look like a genious.

Hmm. Well, who knows, then!

"genious" - you're not much of a team player are you.

Maybe Carl and crew have learned about draft value. Probably not. I'm sure next year they'll draft another Kawika Mitchell in the 2nd that should have waited until the 5th.
The Niners probably looked at Boomer and thought he was a very good player, but team needs overruled, as they often did in this draft.

I never claimed to be literate.

Sorry, we have no matches for genious.
Did you mean genius?

If it wasn't for the Roys I would've forgotten about him a long time ago.

I think Boomer is Kawika painted white. Like a reverse Soul Man. C. Thomas Howell rules.

Sheesh, what a memory on you.

I'm gonna have to abuse my mod powers and add myself to your ignore list. I don't want you dredging up my past to use against me.

I'd rather be drafted in the 5th round by the Chiefs than be the #1 pick by the 49ers.

I'm thinking after preseason game #1, maybe you guys will dump Maz and fall in love with this guy.

Can anyone find any good video of Boomer playing? I really don't care about combine crap.
