If that is the case and they take Wright and Fleener is still there in the second I hope they package some picks and move up and grab him too.

Only purpose of drafting Wright would be for slot purposes, and KR duties once Ginn's contract runs out (which we could easily address in the 3rd/4th round).

-If DeCastro, Hill, and Fleener were all off the board at this point I'd go BPA, and Wright is a 2nd rounder material in sheepskin clothing due to a WR-needy draft.

the difference is wright has eltie speed crabtree doesnt

its like saying greg jennings and steve smith are teh same as crabtree because theyre short

jennings and smith have speed jjust like wright

If we had any other QB I'd be so/so about this pick, but everybody knows Smith sucks at throwing the ball to guys under 6'3, we need a big motherf**ker that can naturally catch Smith's horribly overthrown balls vertically, down the sideline, and in the back of the endzone (like Vernon Davis has been able to do, due to his height). -Gotta help the QB succeed.

Also, the WR needs to be big enough to block (since we're a run-dominant team), pick just wouldn't make any sense; this would be a Scot McChoulan pick more than a Trent Baalke pick if it were to happen (which it won't).

he only has guys 6 3

we have never had anyone above 6 4 and his overthrows are overblown you are thinking of someone in the past

last year he was 48 % on deep throws that is average to good without a deep threat and all of those guys were short...

Highlights: Kendall Wright to 49ers; Fleener not taken in the first round.

Can someone tell me why Wright is a good prospect? 5'10" with bad timed speed...

if you are asking this then you haven't paid attention to college football and should skip the draft
If u watch the tape wright is a playmaker. Had a bad 40 at the combine, but he can't be touched with pads on. I would love to have him, at worst he is a good kr/pr guy who can play slot. would upgrade our WRs when the future of the position is uncertain.
Wright is a good looking player, but I don't think he's on Desean Jackson's level. We definitely need guys that have some wiggle to separate and Wright can do that.
Agree w/LV Willy...but I'll add that Harbaalke will trade up to get Fleener, if that's what it takes. Coach is still smarting because he didn't take Baldwin last year...and he ended up in Seattle. I have the feeling Baalke will end with 4-5 really good players...and use some of his picks to trade up to get them. The roster's already full...so getting top line talent will be more effective than drafting 7+ guys, some of whom would have very little chance of making the team. I'd love to come out of the draft w/Fleener, Doug Martin (or Turbin, if DM can't be reached), C/OG, WR, S.
The best thing that could happen to the 49ers' draft was Kendall Wright running a 4.61 40 at the combine, combined with Stephan Hill's 4.31 40. With Hill projected to be gone by our pick, Wright may fall to us at #30.

Hill will be a better vertical threat. But like all long striders, his speed builds as he gathers momentum down field.

In contrast, Wright is quick and fast, resulting in separation getting out of his breaks, In a "3 step drop" offense, Wright's ability to separate on short and intermediate routes will make him a favorite target for Alex Smith, who likes to throw to an open man. And Wright's route running is further along than Hill's, so Wright will have more of an impact as a rookie.

If you must have a tall, redzone threat, pick one of the big WRs in day three, or Ladarius Green TE in the third.
ZOMG FLEENER NOT TAKEN?!?!

So I take it Wright is gonna become the new Eric Berry/Prince Amukamara draft favorite for the zone this year? (The player everybody thinks will fall to us/guy we end up valuing more than our GM does.)
The Giants will draft Fleener if the niners don't. In fact NY might attempt to trade up in front of the niners to get him.

that might be fleener no one else sees fleener as 1st round talent

I like Kendall Wright but he's too small for my liking. I think we need a big physical WR who can get vertical.

Kendall Wright and DeSean Jackson are the same height and Wright is 15 lbs heavier.

Having said that, if Wright, Fleener and Reuben Randall were available at #30, I'd be happy with whoever Harbaugh and Baalke choose, as long as it's one of those three.
