I'll cheer for him though.
The funny thing is, when you have a great GM and some of these late picks pans out, you end up with a really good team after a few years.
49ers got their starting Fullback by drafting a DE in the 7th round and converting him to FB. That kind of savvy by GMs really builds franchises.
You are dead right that the odds are slim, but great GMs tend to beat the odds.
