Some great plays, thanks for the video. Liked the way he caught the ball in all different manners...over shoulder, high point, sliding, diving, etc. Also liked the way he adjusted to the ball and put himself between the ball and the defender. Lastly, loved the way he avoided hits but don't think he will get away with all the cutbacks in the NFL...too much speed and discipline on defense.
Agreed he's gonna have to learn the balance of to take what they give you and try a score every play.

I just dont think it makes sense to take another WR that is raw and unrefined in the first round after doing the same thing last year. Now, if he did fall to the 3rd (which he wont) I would go for him. Defense has to be the focus early on.
Can't use last year negative against the next. Think about no Williams, no Ginn, no Ham, possibly no Moss, we're not that deep. At least to start the year for Ham and Williams. Someone like Patterson could make this team electric in the pass game and return game. I see it as two for one. At the very least you traded Jenkins for Patterson this year for arguement sake Ginn isn't playing Sunday. He'd be on the sideline like Jenkins has been all year. Patterson wouldn't be sitting on the sidelines on an important 3rd down in the NFC championship game.
I'm not saying that I dont want a WR to be drafted. I would look at a WR in the 2nd or 3rd rd. Someone like Quinton Patton or Terrance Williams for example could be available in the 2nd when the Niners select. I just think it makes much more sense to draft someone like Datron Jones, Shariff Floyd, or Jesse Williams if they are there in the first.
