Does implementing the WCO require us to draft a big WR?

A new offensive system obviously requires some change. Does the WCO now require us to take a big bodied WR?

Does an AJ Green or Julio Jones become a bigger priority? Or can we deal with what we have?
Our receivers aren't small.

AJ Green would be a great pick for any team or any offense he'll be gone. But no...we don't need receiver early.

I wouldn't mind taking a look at Torrey Smith if we trade down in the 2nd.

WCO needs receivers who excel after the catch not excel at jump balls.
No. I'd expect us to look for guys similar to the Colts WRs. Garçon, White, Wayne and Collie all have good hands, can make the tough catches in traffic and they run smooth, precise routes. That'll be vital on the quicker, timed routes.

It should add some structure to Crab's game. I don't know how Morgan will fit in, but he doesn't seem ideal. Kyle Williams can be a great fit if his hands are as good as they're reported to be. Ginn is gone. He has some of the worst hands Ive ever seen.

Who was the large WR that we had in the 80s?

If you don't remember (or weren't born yet) we had Dwight Clark, Freddy Solomon and a few others that were probably just about 6-0'.

Then we moved on to Jerry Rice who I don't believe was anywhere approaching 6-5.

We did have tight ends. Russ Francis was probably the tallest.

We do have a TE who is 6-5 in Vernon Davis.

Oh, by the way I think I will leave this to Baalke and Harbraugh.

Do some people just put this out to increase their postings?

Dwight Clark was 6'4'' dude. Vern is only 6'3''.

If Aj Green is on the board you take him... But he won't be he's top 5!

Rice was nowhere near 6'5, he was only 6'. John Taylor was about the tallest of that era at 6'2". Later we had TO at 6'3" anf J.J. Stokes at 6'4".

Oh and Vernon Davis is also not 6'5". One of the few knocks on him coming out at the draft was he was a bit short for a TE, at only 6'3".

6'3 what a big knock for a guy who runs a 40 time faster then any cb, and is bigger then any safety or lb!
Need sharp route runners who can gain separation quickly, make the first tackler miss, and have consistent hands. The WCO was built for guys like Crabtree. If anything I think we need another elusive, moderate size, YAC WR more than a big WR.

Well that was an analysis fail. But I appreciate the effort.

And yes. My 1.2 posts per day over the past 5 years. Clearly a post whore.

Jerry was 6'2 but 1-2 inches isn't anything special. Crabtree is 6'1 and Morgan is 6'0. It's all about route running and RAC ability by the receivers and size really has nothing to do with that.

Hell Desean Jackson and Maclin in Philly make really good WCO receivers and they're both shorter than 6 feet i believe.
