Poll results: Gilbert is the CB target
By Bill Williamson
In no surprise, fans want to see the San Francisco 49ers go big in their quest for a rookie cornerback.
In our poll this week, we asked readers which cornerback fans want to see the team take in the first round. As of 7:30 p.m. ET Wednesday, the winning vote is for the 49ers to trade up to take Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert. He received 31 percent of the vote. He is widely considered the best cornerback in the draft.
Given these choices, I’d take Verrett at No. 30 because of the value and his potential. But if a trade for Gilbert presents itself, I can see the 49ers, with plenty of trading pieces, making the move. Thanks to everyone who participated.
