Phoenix, don't know if you saw my post in the other thread but I asked if you could scout our next reciever for 2014 class
For now I want Brandon Coleman or Jordan Matthews
It's honestly too early to tell, there's quite a few good prospects but its impossible to tell where some of these guys will fall. My current favorites are Jordan Matthews, Coby Hoffman and Donte Moncrief. If Matthews continues to play the way he did a few days ago, he'll likely move out of the 49ers range, he's very fundamentally sound, a great route runner, very balanced, there's questions about his overall speed, but I don't see that scaring teams off much due to his overall body of work. Moncrief has gotten it done against some of the top defenses in college football, he's got terrific size, very physical., and is a very slick route runner, especially for a guy his size with his frame. Going 6'2", 220, he has the size to handle press coverage and is a highly talented route runner that finds ways to generate separation. Hoffman is a personal favorite of mine, he's one of those guys who isn't the most athletic out there but he busts his ass, has tremendous work ethic. He lacks explosiveness off the line but is a true student of the game, has been improving every season, has pretty good size(6'3", 215), and terrific leaping ability and catching radius. He's prone to drops at times but overall I think he could be a pretty good NFL receiver.
There's a lot of others, we'll just have to see how this season unfolds and how these guys perform.
