I agree the 49ers need to draft at least 2 WRs in this draft but this draft is super deep with #2 type WRs. No need to grab one in the 1st round.
Grab DaRick Rogers in the 3rd and Chad Bumphis in the 6th or 7th round.
Plus one on Rodgers. Not familiar with Bumphis.
Definitely agree with you on Rogers in the 3rd. He's really good at beating CBs off the line of scrimmage and makes the tough catch in traffic pretty consistently. IMO, he could eventually be an Anquan Boldin-type of WR, just not quite as big and physical (same style and toughness though). Not overly concerned with the off-field stuff since there's enough vets on the roster to keep him on the straight and narrow path.
In addition to Rogers, I'll throw a wild-card name out there as a late-round pick/UDFA. Former Army QB Trent Steelman, who's converting to WR. Kid is tough as nails, can run with ball, has shown great hands in all-star games/practices and has pretty decent size for a slot guy (5'11", 208). IMO, he's got the talent to be the next Julian Edelman or possibly a Danny Amendola-type though only younger and not so injury-prone.
Steelman might even be able to do some option/wildcat stuff in this offense. Apparently, his Army service commitment can be deferred because he's pursuing a pro sports career, so he could be in camp this year.
