Exactly. 40 times are overrated or actually, I put more stock on 40 times with CBs, since they need the recovery speed if they get burned.

GIMME HILL!
We will need one once we cut Kyle Williams, duh.

I want Hill too but I think he will be gone before we pick

lol KW ain't going no where. If anything, he wont be returning kicks anymore. He's done nothing at WR to even consider moving down the depth chart, let alone, be cut.

He was the our 5th WR when the season started and only played because of injuries, dude is definitely gonna have to compete for his spot on the team next year

false. Lets put the draft aside for now and look at the current roster and imagine we resign the FA Wrs. Crab and Morgan are 1 & 2 and KW is def number 3. Does alot better then Ginn does cuz DBs have to respect the fact that kyle williams will catch the ballif left open, unlike Ginn. There was a game where KW had like 5 reeceptins on one drive. That doesnt happen if youre not getting open. He's got hands and speed. YES, he doesnt need to ever be trusted with returning the ball, But if we cut him, it will come back to haunt us.

Lol. The fact is there's no way he's #3 once you bring new talent in. As for last season, he played like a #5. Ginn definitely was more of a threat see the TD that got called back against the Ravens due to some lame chop block penalty. Kyle's best game was 66 yds against the s**t rams, he's not the threat you're making him out to be.
DBs respect him? Lmao...

When has Ginn done anything else spectacular at reciever other than that one play? Why do you think there's alot of people saying Ginn should be used primarily as a return specialist? The one thing everyone says about Ginn is that he cant catch. He drops the ball when we need a first down. Whats the point in being a fast reciever if youre gonna drop the ball? Ginn had the same stats Josh Morgan did buddy. Thats not what I call a productive reciever. Ginn was our #3, really number #2 reciever because edwards and morgan were both hurt and still didnt do much. KW produces way more with soo little PT. Ginn's had 6 recievering TDs in his 5yr career, one of those was in 2010. He had 0 this year. KW had 3 TDs this year with half the playing time. I like Ginn, but dont say he should be higher on the depth chart than Williams.

I'm not defending Ginn as much as bashing KW. "Ginn had the same stats as morgan did buddy", um and Kyle williams had similar yardage too. I don't think Kyle is what I would call a "productive receiver" either. I'm perfectly fine with keeping Kyle around for depth but don't try to convince me that he's better than a 4th or 5th guy down the depth chart once we get some new talent in here.

Call Ginn the #2 but by the time all of those injuries happened #2 and #3 were basically interchangeable as far as targets go, neither were key parts of the passing game. They both ended the year with around 20 receptions. Yes Kyle caught 3 touchdowns on a few short yardage plays in the redzone, but he's hardly what I would consider a big redzone difference maker.

Kyle does nothing spectacularly. Decent but not lightning speed, hands aren't as bad as ginns but aren't spectacular, height and jump ball ability nothing to write home about either. A good guy to have as depth but not someone I expect to take a key roster spot once we get a load of new WR talent.

Anyway, this thread is about Kendall Wright. I don't even remember how it turned into a Kyle Williams thread. Wrong KW. If people are comparing the two, there is no comparison to be made. I just think that if you bring in a guy like Kendall, and bring back morgan cheap, that's already our top 3 in crab-kendall-morgan. Some people want an FA like Meachem as well. If that happens, Morgan goes to #4 and Kyle is at #5. Add on that we're likely to draft a few late round WRs...and I can easily see Williams losing his spot all-together.
crabtree and morgan outside

wright in slot (can also play outside)

KW as backup #4 guy


not bad
It wasn't just his bad 40 times that has scouts/analysts doubtful of his draft ranking now...he didn't exactly light up the field with his routes or pass-catching, either. I believe that's one reason Harbaugh met w/RG III to get better insight into the kind receiver Wright really is.

neither did blackmon

its very rare to find a polished route runner in the draft but wright definitally ahs better hands than blackmon
he was one the the college football leaders in recieving yards most of them were deep routes he is definitally a deep threat and ya RG3 already said harbaugh met with him to talk about wright
March 21st could mean millions to him. He has three weeks to work on his stance.

I'd say Ginns the bigger home run threat, Williams the better all around receiver. Just looking at stats is REALLY misleading, man. Ginn had a ton of starts. Kyle saw the field much less often, and when he did he capitolized.

That NFC championship game will probably make niner fans forget this, though.

Scouts compare this guy to Steve Smith (Panthers). Just sayin'.
Football Speed Trumps Track Speed in my book.However measuring or comparing "football speed" is very subjective and hence, aways open to mucho interpretation.

I'm sure we would still sign/draft another redzone target who would be our #4

Crabtree prior to the draft...

Player Comparison: Larry Fitzgerald. You would think Fitz and Crabtree would be brothers based on their similar frames. Both receivers have a knack for getting the football at its apex on jump balls and making the circus catch.
