Do we draft Alshon Jeffery at #30?

Do you think Jeffery is going to get enough separation from NFL CB's? That's the biggest question about him and as Phoenix mentioned our biggest area of need from our WR's.

A guy that goes 4 or 5 games with less than 25 yards receiving per game.....sounds like a guy the 49ers already have on the roster, even worse.

Not saying he's going to be an all pro but everyone at South Carolina says he's one of the hardest workers on the team.
That says something about the rest of the team if I consider his fatness...

South Carolina finished #9 in the AP Poll so obviously they were doing something right...
I watch Alshon Jeffery and I see a guy who did well against a lot of short corners in college. When utilizing his size mismatch, he's open when he's covered, even when facing top competition, such as Janoris Jenkins and Alfonzo Dennard.

The problem is, he definitely lacks elite speed, and will be shut down against bigger NFL corners and even safeties if he can't get off the ball. He also is not refined as a route-runner, but that's what coaches are for.

Again though.. He was nearly unstoppable when the team utilized his size mismatch in games, but this works best in the spread system. Jeffery is most dangerous one on one with no safety help over top. Overall, I grade him as a high 2nd rounder and feel he is your typical boom or bust prospect. I don't think we can rule him out as a possibility to be selected, but I don't know if I'm a proponent of taking him in the first when I feel there are others with more upside that could be taken in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

We are looking for Big receivers. That is Numero Uno
You guys we do not need any small receivers whatsoever. We havee Crabs and Morgan thier both 6'1, not short but not a big body niether. Blackmon will be off the board, so will Floyd. So I say wait till the 2nd or third round and pick up one of these 4 recievers: Brian Quick, Dwight jones, Tommy Streeter or Jeff Fuller. If we can get our hands on any of these four guys they will be explosive and the missing piece to our burgioning Dynasty!

Maybe I just don't get, but I would say that we are looking for good receivers.

That would make quality, not size, numero uno.
