Rating Scot McCloughan's drafts: 2008

New Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan was not a wizard with every draft, and his last two in particular were bad. Not one of the 2008 draft picks remain with San Francisco. This group combined for 45 starts, but 32 of those were by one player, and there have been none since 2012.

Here’s the group:

DL Kentwan Balmer, first round: The one-time 29th pick in the draft played two seasons with no starts and wound up being traded to Seattle. He eventually made his way to Washington only to walk off one day. He had issues. Zero starts for the 49ers. Balmer hasn't played since 2011 (three games with the Redskins).

Hit or miss: Miss. Badly.

OL Chilo Rachal, second round: Made 38 starts over four seasons, but only three in 2011 when San Francisco made its first run to the NFC title game. He was cut by Arizona in August of 2013 and hasn’t played since.

Hit or miss: Miss.

DB Reggie Smith, third round: He, too, is out of the NFL after four years with San Francisco. He made seven starts, all in 2010.

Hit or miss: Miss.

OL Cody Wallace, fourth round: He appeared in one game over two seasons with the 49ers. He was a backup in Pittsburgh this past season. Overall, he has appeared in 33 games with six starts. All of the starts and 24 of the games have occurred the past two seasons with the Steelers.

Hit or miss: Miss.

WR Josh Morgan, sixth round: He was developing nicely with San Francisco until an ankle injury ended his 2011 season. He signed as a free agent the following year with Washington. He caught 10 passes with Chicago this past season, and has 209 receptions in his career. Morgan made 32 starts in four years with San Francisco.

Hit or miss: Hit. Though he didn’t stay there, for a sixth-round choice he’s had some productive years.

LB Larry Grant, seventh round: He was cut his first summer with San Francisco, but played the next three seasons with St. Louis, appearing in 34 games with eight starts. He spent the next two seasons with San Francisco, appearing in every game and making three starts for an injured Patrick Willis late in the 2012 season. He did not play last season (he was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs).

Hit or miss: In between. He didn’t make much of an impact, but he’s a late-round pick who played parts of six seasons.
