The QB pick is definitely a luxury pick. Since Renfree was a Harbaugh recruit at one point, I thought it made sense. I agree that WR is an option or maybe another pass rusher at that point.
I think the injury history actually helps us when it comes to Lattimore. We can stash him on the PUP while he gets up to 100%, and we don't waste a roster spot on him, so we can still carry Gore, Hunter, LMJ, Dixon, and Hampton. If one of them gets injured, they go to IR, and Lattimore has a roster spot waiting for him. If no one gets injured, they sit him for the rest of the year, and he gets to play 2014 with over a full year of rehab and conditioning.
I think the same injury reasoning works for Q. Smith (plus we need a new Smith, as the Smith reserves have been reduced each year of the Harbaugh regime), but I don't see him going undrafted. I'd be surprised if he made it out of the 5th round.
