If anything Boldin will be a upgrade over moss. Also about the wr boldin and harvin, harvin wasn't healthy he never is. You can say he would have done this or that, but in fact he didn't and he couldn't and if he can't stay healthy he won't. Boldin stayed healthy and made it to the superbowl and played. I rather have a guy who plays 16 playoffs than a guy who gives you 12 games or less a season. The only reason we take a wr is because it's BPA, the only guy that could be that is Hunter, Size, Speed of a number 1 wr, he comes with concerns. But we have bigger issues because we don't have a backup tight end, we need a nose, we need a replacement for justin and depth along the dline. If we draft a wr he most likely will not get playing time, we run the pistol that's 2 wr's on the field for most plays. We need a back up tightend who can catch and block for that formation over a 5th wr.
I don't think anyone is saying Harvin is better than Boldin, in any case they are very different players, All I was saying we mustn't under-estimate our opponents.
My rationale in picking Hunter is same as yours, he is just too big a talent to pass on while I admit and agree the 9ers will probably pick Zach Ertz to fill that TE hole. D-line depth is less pressing as we do have Glenn Dorsey. If you are talking about an heir apparent to Justin Smith, we can even do that in the next draft if we want. But, going back to WR, just because we run less WRs with the Pistol, it doesn't mean we won't need more WRs cos we don't run the Pistol all the time. We can just as easily run 3 WR sets with Hunter as the x receiver going downfield to give us that deep threat dimension.
