Be thankful we didn't draft Crabtree...

We all sighed with each passing day that Jeremy Maclin wasn't in camp.  But think of 49ers fans as it relates to Michael Crabtree.  The guy was likely the 2nd best overall talent available in the draft, but wasn't selected until 10th (which was an absolute steal).  Plus, Darrius Heyward-Bey (a far inferior talent) was selected three slots ahead of Crab and recently signed a contract that DRASTICALLY overpaid him.  And from what I'm reading, the idea that Crab wasn't selected until the tenth slot is of no consequence to either he or his agent.  Crabtree is looking for top three money, which can't possibly sit well with the 49ers or their hard nosed head coach.  And seriously, what bargaining chips do you have when you want top three money as the tenth overall pick?

Whats worse is that Crabtree has a lot of diva in him.  How well do you think it will sit with him that Heyward Bey is more than likely going to be getting a bigger paycheck than himself?  So as Eagles fans, be thankful our draft situation didn't come to anything like what the 49ers will deal with.
