2011 NFL Draft Grades: Lots Of B's For San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers opted to pass on a quarterback in the first round selecting pass rusher Aldon Smith with the seventh overall pick. In the second round, though, they didn't hesitate and snagged QB Colin Kaepernick.

49ers fans seem generally OK with San Francisco's draft. Very few are saying it's a great class and very few are saying it's a terrible class. 

SB Nation's Niners Nation posted a poll asking their readers to grade the class. With well over 2,000 votes, just six percent of fans give the draft an A or an A-.  61 percent of the fans give this draft a B+, B or a B- so that's where the majority resides. Another 21 percent said it was a C+ or a C-.

Fans are usually overly dramatic on draft day. A decent player can be made out to seem like the best player in the draft and a questionable pick can mean a nightmare for your organization. It seems that the 49ers fans are right on noting that, while there's some potential here, there are also some question marks.

Check out Niners Nation for th full reaction to the 49ers draft. Lots of interesting opinions there.
