SPEED?! Are you kidding me?!
I just watched his highlights against Alabama and the first thing that jumped out to me is how slow this dude is. Great frame but it is a long, sloooowwwww-footed stride. That's the last thing the 49ers need. They already have their possession guys in Crabtree and Boldin. They need a speedster with good hands.
This is not the guy and, thankfully, I could never see the 49ers moving up to draft him. Either stand pat or move up for a burner. I'm never one to go with the Al Davis approach but in this case, they're not selling out for speed just for the sake of doing so; speed is the one thing this team needs. As close as the Niners can get to a guy like Victor Cruz (but with some added height/bulk if possible), the better. If they don't we'll see the same offense we saw last year.
I don't want Evans either and I sure hope they don't trade up to get him too. You never know what the 9ers or Baalke and Harbaugh is gonna do, they've been known to trade up for players us fans never want, Aldon Smith, AJ Jenkins (even they didn't trade up, us fans did not want him) and lastly Eric Reid. Even though I wanted Eric Reid, I can honestly say I was unhappy with the Aldon Smith and AJ Jenkins picks, I wanted Nick Farley, Robert Quinn or Blaine Gabbert at that time in 2011 and Coby Fleener or Stephen Hill over Jenkins in 2012. So come May 8th, be prepared to be disappointed in the 1st round when the 9ers pick, I fully expect them to move up in the draft and take someone I'd be disappointed with in Kelvin Benjamin, just my opinion though.
