Patton will take Manningham's spot eventually and could probably start this year with Crabs and Boldin. Like others, you look at Patton and say, "average size, average speed...so what". But he'll be a solid player for us. We need need that burner though.
LOL......not really. I think Jenkins is going to be a big contributor this year. He wasn't really used last season, was caught ill-prepared, I expect him to get his s**t together and be the deep threat/burner that you are talking about. Whether or not Jenkins would step up was irrelevant, the 49ers needed another WR. Manningham is coming off a gruesome injury, Williams off a torn ACL, Moss is gone, Lockette is an unknown quantity, Boldin is on a one year deal, Crabtree could be the odd man out when it comes to re-signing people for 2015.
