While not a need per say, he will be an absolute stud #1 WR and with Allen, Crabtree, Jenkins, and Manningham we would instantly have one of, if not the best wr core in the NFL. I think that we are progressively making a push to open up the offense by going with Kaepernick (and adding James and Jenkins in the draft). This could provide an explosive offense going forward with an offseason to make that complete transformation.
I liked to see how he would do against speedy CB's. Allen's good but he doesnt seem to have good enough speed to be a star (1st round pick) in the NFL, imo. Not sure if it's due to terrible QB play and horrible coaching.
I might change my mind when we start to see him work out. Personally, I rather the team stock up on defense. We need at least one young defensive stud to groom behind Soap or Justin Smith. Soap might actually be gone next year, so would need a backup to Ricky Jean.
Also would love to get another CB stud to replace Carlos Rogers. We basically only have 1 young secondary stud in Culliver. Rogers, is old, Brown & Goldson, Whitner are already in their prime years now.
Allen is basically a taller Crabtree. I compare him more to Larry Fitzgerald.
What this team needs at WR is a long-term, productive, stud speed WR, and we need to find out if AJ Jenkins is that guy.
Regardless those are the type of WR's I think we should go after in the draft, not guys like Allen no matter how talented he is, when you plug him into this offense he doesn't necessarily add a different dimension to it
