Yeah there's also a ton of WR's that are picked in the middle-late rounds. Historically WR is the position most likely to bust and least likely to start during the rookie season. Any rookie WR the 49ers bring in will be used sparingly this year as he'll be behind Crabtree, Manningham and Moss....and then you also have Ginn and Kyle Williams on the roster and so realistically one WR to develop is all they need and that can be found in Rounds 2-4 easily with the depth of WR in this draft class.
Manningham is no more then a 2nd or 3rd option. Crabs is a 2nd at best. Moss is an enigma. Ginn is not a WR. Williams can jump off a bridge.
