In a heavy bit of foreshadowing, ESPN's got a shot of Vernon Davis crying his eyes out before he was even selected. I guess he's about as happy of any of us would be if we had to play for the 49ers.

MDS, talk to use about Vernon.

6. San Francisco: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland

Matt Leinart, the quarterback the San Francisco 49ers likely would have taken last year had Leinart entered the draft, was still on the board for the 49ers this year. They must really, really hate the fact that they took Alex Smith right about now. Instead they took Davis, who bench pressed more than most linemen and ran faster than most receivers at the combine. He is such a great athlete that if he were a baseball player everyone would accuse him of using steroids.
