Singletary did have something to do with the 2010 draft though. He was adamant the niners draft Taylor mays even though Baalke didnt want to.
building isn't just in the drafting of the team. he set the tone for the 49ers to be tough and smash mouth. Vernon Davis wouldn't be nearly as good as he is now without the lessens he learned from Singletary.
