Allen Robinson and Jordan Matthews to me are the most game-ready guys. Moncrief is also intriguing to me but his route-running was very limited at Ole Miss. If he puts it all together though, he's got Josh Gordon like size and ability.
I still don't get the obsession with height. If you're looking at a team like Seattle, their Achilles heel is speed and quickness. This is something a lot of people have attested to, that one of the key ways of beating that defense is to get a fast receiver in motion and beat them down field, when you do that, you either get someone completely wide open downfield or you pull their one deep safety away to expose the middle further.
The biggest matchup issue the 49ers are lacking on offense is speed, speed at RB and speed at WR. They need someone that Seattle and other teams will legitimately worry about beating them deep. Right now VD is the only guy on offense with any real speed.
