KR, PR, slot WR, gun back
And not taking anything away from Gore but I don't care how he feels about the 49ers drafting another RB, this is a big boy league, not a tea party. I want Spiller with the thought that it would actually extend Gores career, not push him out of the offense.
Plus Gore isn't getting any younger.
Gotta love how some of you guys are against drafting arguably the 2nd best WR prospect in this draft (one who can be used in the return game, could play in the slot if needed and would increase our team speed at WR which is needed) but you are all for Spiller ?
Do we need to spend a 1st round pick on a RB with Gore and Coffee already back there ? Nope.....do we truly know how good Coffee can be ? Nope...since the bye week he has barely touched the ball and it's hard to judge a back who has not been given the chance to run behind a solid OL (and with a playcaller who can actually calls plays and not be so predictable). Spiller would extend Gore's career ? Coffee could do the same possibly we just don't know yet, oops wait....I forgot that WZ'ers can tell if a player is a bust or not during or after 1 year as a pro.
The same argument people will use against Tate could be used against Spiller.
