As if no other team would have problems if their #1WR goes down...What are you dreaming of??? Either we hire another expensive receiver or we draft one and HOPE that he will help us from day one.
This year we lost three of our receivers effectivelly. No draft in the world could have helped us out of this dilemma. And no other team would have managed this problem significantly better.
Now, our pass protection fails sometimes, Kap seems to be in the sophomore slump and LIKE EXPECTED the remaining WRs, besides Boldin (and Davis), play like s**t. Thanks to that, panic is spread around and now we have to draft at least one WR if not two.
I'm sick of overreactions.
Even if Boldin is in his twilight years, he is still experienced. That guy is a very good #3WR next year. I do even assume that we can extend MM and Boldin...Don't see any good arguments on their side. Boldin will be 34 next season, he hasnt got the bargaining power to demand much money. MM is coming from a huge injury, he was down for almost a year. IF he produces nice numbers, he could become expensive but that is a very big IF b/c he wasnt THAT significant in his career yet.
Just because some guys are tired of the injuries to our key receivers, it doesnt mean that we should make a run for a WR as long as we got more pressing needs.
Though, the draft will be loaded with a lot of talent at CB and SS class seems NOT to be top-heavy anyway. Given, that we will have two 2nd-round picks, a jump for a high-class WR in the first round would be ok.
