By the latter I assume they meant the Panthers? All the guys I like... Hopkins, Allen, Austin, Bailey and Patton. Like I said in another thread I kind of put the WRs out of mind because it doesn't seem like we would draft one in the 1st few rounds. I guess we could with Williams, Manningham and Boldin being FAs next year but not a whole lot of room on this year's roster with Crabtree, Boldin, Manningham, Williams, Jenkins, and Lockette/Moore. I could see the Lockette going back to the PS (don't think Moore is eligible) if we draft someone high. Williams or Manningham (if he can't get healthy) could get cut. If not that then the high pick rookie would probably have to be inactive since we would likely have 5 active wrs at most for games. Someone would have to be inactive. Could be Manningham until he is healthy, then maybe Williams or Jenkins or the rookie the rest of the year. Either way someone is going to have to sit out and all of the WRs are capable of playing. And all that would be with Lockette going to the PS which would mean we could lose him. Seems unlikely with the way Harbaugh has praised him but you never know with him. Good year to need a WR just not sure we do. Wish there were more pure FS's and 3-4 DE's in this class.
Edit: and don't get me wrong I have no problem if they take a WR early. I don't think we necessarily need one but I am find if they get one and just let the cards fall as they may. Let the guys battle it out... if it means a solid WR has to get cut or not be active than so be it. The last 2 years we realized our WR depth wasn't good enough and it hurt us in the most important games. Would possibly give us a chance to save money and upgrade from Williams or maybe even Manningham when they are FA's next year. On the other hand I have no problem if we use the picks on bigger needs. You can always draft a WR next year if we lose Manningham, Williams and/or Boldin.
