I am certain that Hill would be no worse than #2 on the 49er. In terms of using two TE's, mismatches, playmaking ability, replacing Walker, etc., we don't need to use our 1st pick to achieve those goals. Even if JH ran two TE's almost exclusively (though I highly doubt we're going to use it more than 10 or 15% in 2012) we still don't need to burn our 1st rounder on to achieve that goal.There are guys we can get as late as the 4th round (Dwayne Allen, Orson Charles, Ladarius Green, Michael Egnew, all guys you can split out a get the same kind mis-match Fleener would presumably get) who can come in and do the same job Fleener would do for us. Personally, I think JH & Co. wants to open the offense up so I doubt we are going to use as much two TE sets as we did last season. But my point is that we don't need to draft Fleener in the 1st in order to achieve all the things that people here are saying why we need to draft Fleener.
Curious what makes you think that. In every system that Harbaugh has head coached, the TEs have been featured more than the WRs
