Doubtful, physical traits could move him up into round 1 even. In anycase, the 49ers likely will need someone that is ready to play, no more projects or guys red-shirting for a whole season.
I would not be shocked if we package some picks and move up somehow to get multiple picks in the top 50. Would be great to see us come out of that range with Patterson and a D lineman.
So far, just watching youtube clips, Patterson jumps out the most as the sort of large, fast, strong, dynamic WR I want.
Great to see this thread has taken off. Must mean I'm not the only one worried about, or at least thinking about, our WR situation.
I really wish we could have found a way to keep either Owusu or Palmer. We could sure use someone like that now. It seems like WR is a very tough position to scout. And every year the best rookie WRs seem to be equally mixed between high picks and low or undrafted guys. So for that reason, I'm hoping they keep enough rookies next year to give us more chances to find gold.
