Just had another thought. Austin and Patterson are really just too far out of reach. If the 9ers don't wish to draft a WR that high, one possible solution is to draft a TE in the 2nd which can also fill the void left by Delanie. On that front, I don't think you can go wrong with either Tyler Eifert or Zach Ertz. Both can take the top of DBs.
Two weeks to go and Tavon Austin is the talk of the town; might be a top ten pick; this makes me sad.
Patterson is falling and questions about his work effort are surfacing. I think he ends up with the Rams.
We do need an upgrade replacement for D. Walker. It might be hard to pass on Eifert or Ertz if they are on the board.
You are absolutely right, I am 99% sure the Rams will be picking a big time WR, be it Tavon Austin or Cordarrelle Patterson. There are now also news that Vikings might trade up for a receiver as well. But, back to NFC West, you have either an Austin or Patterson playing for the Rams, Percy Harvin for the Seahawks and a better Fitz with the Carson Palmer partnership, this really is no joke. We need to think hard about this, if we don't arm ourselves accordingly, I think it will be very hard for us to come out on top of the division again.
