Then you take into top prospects like him will train the 40 yd dash and improve the times. He could shock alot of people like Megatron did and run a 4.3. Its posssible with him huge with lots of muscle and there isnt a single prospect with his hands, jumps or body control. Plus his blocking only needs tweaking but he punishes people. Come draft season his name will be up there in the top 10 prospects. Definately a true real #1 WR for any team.
Look, man, I like Alshon a lot, but you're being delusional about his speed. Megatron could always fly at every point of his college career, and Alshon has never had top end speed. Alshon runs great routes, pushes off like TO in his prime, and has great body coordination/hands. He doesn't come close to having top end speed, though.
That said, I would love to see him on SF for his redzone action alone. Not sure if he'll ever be a dominant #1 in the NFL because of his lack of speed, but he would still be a great addition to the Niners given the fact that we already have some speedy slot guys and Vernon. If Alshon is there in the first when we pick, I'd give him some very serious consideration. His 40 time will probably dictate whether that happens or not.
