San Francisco 49ers: Alshon Jeffrey
You know, like when fans scream that the 49ers took A.J. Jenkins over Alshon Jeffery in the 2012 draft. How what about the flip side?
Think that one is working out for San Francisco?
The decision by both teams were on display again Sunday when Dalton played poorly in a home playoff loss to San Diego and when Kaepernick led the 49ers to a playoff win at Green Bay.
Thanks to Kenton Wong of ESPN Stats & Information, it is easy to tell that Sunday’s disparity continues a postseason trend for both young quarterbacks. Kaepernick clearly thrives in the postseason while Dalton has melted. Here is a chart Wong put together to show the playoff disparity of the two.
So, sometimes, it’s worth looking at the draft moves that panned out.
