After all the midget WR trash talk, if zoners want a big WR who will go up and fight for the ball and bring it in the red zone... this is the guy. But instead people will focus on Hunter who would get manhandled by Seattles DBs. I wouldnt be dissapointed if we passed on him at 31 because of our safety needs, but if we pass on him at 34 while hes on the board... it would definitely be a wtf moment IMO.
Crabtree is gonna be a pain to deal with in negotiations, AB is here for one year, MM has 1 year left, AJ is unproven, and KW is a slot guy. In two years none of these guys except for AJ might be on the team. There is a need for WR depth for the future just as much as the D-line.
I think the trend of people bashing Allen and then backing Hunter is an absolute joke. To me, Hunter has bust written all over him. BRB, 6'4" receiver built like an NBA point guard, perfectly ripe for being manhandled and b***h-slapped around by Seattle's defensive backs, a guy who is an absolute body catcher who got away with it in college football but struggles to make catches away from his body and won't get away with it in the NFL. BRB, run-heavy team drafting a guy who can't and won't run block. If all you needed to succeed as a WR in the NFL was to be 6'4", Chaz Schilens would be an absolute stud of a receiver.
I'd imagine that Justin Hunter is quite a ways down the list of draftable wide receivers for the 49ers.
