Gilyard VS Spiller VS Bryant

We clearly have need of a punt returner, a back up RB to Gore in the Spread, and a WR. Which of these three would be BPA for our needs in the draft? If we could drop back and get another pick and stillget Gilyard would it be a good pick for us?
I want CJ Spiller!
I'd be happy to land any of the three.
if you had to pick one the most obviously choice is Spiller...
How about trade back, get Graham and Gilyard and a 2nd draft pick?
rather get gilyard with a 2nd or 3rd R pick then a 1st with spiller
Bryant really shouldn't be in discussion to be a return man.

I'd be surprised if the Niners draft a WR in the first three rounds of this draft. Look for them to find a player like Spiller, or a CB with return ability, before a WR. A WR would simply not be on the field much if they keep the current 2 TE-2 WR base offense. With a player like Spiller, he would play a big chunk of the game, outside of returning kicks and punts.

One more note: The Niners really like adding WR's with size onto the roster. Gilyard is going to measure under 6' high, and around 185 pounds. Just not the type of receiver the team usually looks at.

I agee 100%. Taking a WR in the first couple of rounds would be stupid.

I just think they have Morgan set at WR for some time now, and want to see how Hill and Jones play out in 2010.

Seems like a strong possibility, yeah.

Early on, among DB's and RB's with return ability, there's some, but not a whole lot. People expecting USC's McKnight to come out, think again, he sounds like he's totally committed to returning. He said he doesn't feel ready. So right now, you've basically got:

Tier 1 (Rounds 1 - 3)

Spiller (Clemson)
Arenas (Alabama)
Thompson (Cal) - Some PR exp.
Cox (Oklahoma State)
Wilson (Boise St.)
McCourty (Rutgers)
Owusu-Ansah (Indiana PA)

Tier 2 (Rounds 4-5)
Ross (Arizona) - little bit of KR exp.
McMannis (Northwestern)

The only argument I can make to counter that statement is the real lack of playing time both Jones and Hill have gotten this year. Everybody knows Hill's "clocked" speed and his late season boom last year and Jones's reported great play in preseason but we have seen nothing...so far. I'm not sure if its a trust issue, personal agenda, or an unknown reason but something has to be up.

I wouldn't mind seeing a smaller "DeSean Jackson" type stretching the field a la Jacoby Ford. All of our WR's seem to fit the same mold so mismatches are hard to come by except for Davis.

Cox and McMannis are great targets.

Wouldn't mind Cox in the 3rd if we don't get Haden in the 1st.
