I completely agree, at the moment Blackmon looks at best another Crabtree or Dez Bryant, he isn't CJ or AJ Green(based solely on his rookie year).
I don't see any wr that I like (without doubts). I think the niners are going FA in the draft, then take one in the 2nd or third, then one in the seventh or free agency. Sometimes people are too stuck on the niners having to get the player in the first round or second and if they don't that the person they pick up can't contribute right away.
When we drafted Crabtree I had my doubts and still do. The reason is because he came from a system. OS has shown us Dez and now Blackmon. Not saying they can't be productive, but not worth a top ten.
Wouldn't be surprised if the niners draft Colby instead then go wr, followed by a pass rush linebacker as I suspect niners won't be resigning Brookes.
Harbaugh will have to trust Baalke (and don't trust our wr coaches endorsement). Critical is who we manage to resign and sign during FA as that will definately dictate our draft.
Best scenario drop back in the draft say the 3rd or 4th pick in the 2nd round and whatever is the equivalent. use the extra picks to either move up in the 2nd with our original 2nd rounder and or third.
