Harbaugh/Baalke have decided to pick 2 WRs within rounds 1-3. One SPEED WR, & one SIZE WR. They are also willing to move up to get the men they want. And they have entrusted you to make the selections. Who are your picks? Please keep reasonable player draft value in mind
Mine for example:
1) 49ers trade their 1st and third for the 18th pick and select Marqise Lee USC (speed)
2) 49ers trade ther 2nd and 4th for the 49th pick and select Jaeland Strong Arizona St. (size)
How about TWO receivers with size AND speed, kinda like nuts AND bolts, or sweet AND sour?(I really don't care who they are just as long as they can CATCH the pill)
I'm changing my answer slightly, although I still would love Cooks/Matthews, a more unrealistic scenario would be Lee/Benjamin.
The more I think about it, the more I think Lee is being underrated. He was considered ELITE before this injury-riddled season. Wouldn't be surprised if he came in and had a Keenan Allen-type rookie year.
And I am very intrigued by Benjamin's ability to come down with contested throws in the endzone a la Alshon Jeffery. Hope he slips a bit after possibly running slow at the combine.
I am a fan of taking 2 WRs with the first 3 picks. Especially if they can't afford to re-sign Boldin.
