Strange, but true. His longest return was for 74 yards. He had two with a total of minus 24 yards.

Yeah, if you draft him, you damn sure don't do it for his punt return skills.

No i realize that. Like i said this year is the first year he has done it. But i think he shows talent for the position, and looks more comfortable and sure handed than anyone we have. Like i said, that would be a work in progress.

I have no problem with the notion of drafting Cooks.

But, I think we would still need to draft a returner specialist.

I would not be opposed to drafting a return specialist either, but they would have to offer some upside in development in other areas. But Its much better to draft someone that is developed in another area, that has potential to develop as a return specialist IMO. We should have drafted Ace Sanders last season...

This. Landry might end up as a better pro receiver than Beckham, tremendous skills, especially adjusting to passes while in the air.

Just their understanding of route running. Its so advanced for a college kid. They're running routes pros run in their 2-3rd year. Honestly any WR coach that gets these guys will just have correct some bad habits and let them play. Beckham and Landry have pro OC and likely a pro QB so they're familiar with a pro style O. I think Beckham is a 2nd rounder and Landry a 3rd. They're not the biggest or fastest prospects so that will likely hurt them.

Beckham has played against the best corners and won. He plays with fire.. He has exceptional hands, great agility, and advanced route running ability. Basically everything AJ wasn't. Besides he played with a future pro QB in a pro OCs system so I would say he's about as close to pro ready as it gets. Ofcourse his size will be a knock but I think that's narrow minded and Im not buying it.

Make sense?

Seeing as how Cam Cameron was calling the offense at LSU and he derives a lot of his philosophy from Bo Schembechler, I'd say that Beckham would feel right as rain in the 49ers offense.
hey phoenix, what do you and the other expert think of kelvin benjamin? i am just a noob and have no clue, but saw him in a mock draft going to us in the second.

I've been very impressed with his improvement this year. Most draft sites have him listed as a 6th round pick but I think he's going to rise to the 2nd- 3rd round after the combine. You can't teach big and you can't teach fast.

Looks like he has legit 4.4 speed. A bit thinly built, so I do worry about him going over the middle, but considering today's NFL, that is becoming less of a problem.

Good call. Someone to watch in the middle rounds.
