No thanks, another slow footed, long strider. 49ers already have Baldwin. You can count me off both the Evans and Coleman bandwagons.
Evans reminds me a lot of Colston, a slowish, bigger possession receiver type. However if you're talking possession receivers, the 49ers have enough of those as it is. I'm hoping that they find someone explosive, who can get downfield in a hurry, someone that the opposing defense has to put a safety over the top to defend...just in case. Baltimore lit teams up in the playoffs because they had their possession receivers(Boldin and Pitta) and had deep threat guys who could stretch the field in Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.
49ers have the possession guys(Crabtree, Boldin, Manningham, Patton), they don't have any real deep downfield threats. That is what I think is the biggest need.
In terms of a great deep threat, I'd LOVE for the 49ers to acquire Sammy Watkins of Clemson who is a threat to take it to the house pretty much everytime he touches the ball, he has great speed and even better acceleration and gets downfield in a hurry but he's looking like an early-mid1st rounder right about now, wouldn't even be shocked to see him get picked before Lee does. He's been having a heck of a season and is a natural playmaker.
