For the time being we're set at tight end so I'm taking that high pick and applying it elsewhere.
How are we set at TE? Delanie Walker is a free agent and there are no guarantees the Niners are going to resign him.
Harbaugh loves tight ends, there's no way we're "set" at that position especially with the success New England has been having with two great playmaking TEs. I do think WR is a bigger issue than tight end, but there's no reason we can't address both very early.
