In recent years, the San Francisco 49ers war room has featured a camera that provided an opportunity for fans to watch the reactions of the 49ers staff throughout the draft. Occasionally, that can provide a look at real reactions when a player comes off the 49ers board just before they were prepared to select them. This year, that will not be an issue:
RT @branteboy49 will 49ers have draft room camera this year? > Nope. No more visuals of reactions when players in front of them are chosen.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) April 24, 2013
In the past, the camera was available on 49ers.com, but that would appear to not be an option this year. I do not know if this means we will get any shots on NFL Network or ESPN, but there will not be the live feed. Both networks will have people on hand in Santa Clara, but I'm not sure beyond that.
I can't remember exactly when it was, but either last year or the year before featured Trent Baalke getting particularly angry about not getting a pick. I believe it was a mid-round pick. Does anybody remember when it was specifically?
