Rd 1. Allen Robinson, Penn St. -- all-around, size receiver. can physically handle the nfl. good route runner, allowing him to get some separation despite not having blinding speed. safe, steady pick; no glaring weaknesses, so productivity is very likely.
Rd 2. Brandin Cooks, Oregon St. -- difference maker, in that he can stretch the field instantly. a game-planning asset for the 49ers.
Rd 2. Martavis Bryant, Clemson -- randy moss-lite. big athletic upside with this guy; could become a go-to guy down the road.
Rd 3. Jared Abbrederis, Wisconsin -- very skilled. underrated athlete because he doesn't have a deep tan. the guy's the state record holder in the high hurdles--don't tell me he isn't quick and very well coordinated.
Rd 3. Bruce Ellington, South Carolina -- short, football-tough, and super athletic. needs work to become nfl savvy, but could develop into a guy who frustrates defenses.
Rd 3. Josh Huff, Oregon -- nfl playmaker-quality athleticism. if being a full-time nfl player allows him to iron out consistency issues, he can be special in some situations. would inject explosiveness into 49er wr play.
Rd 4. Robert Herron, Wyoming -- legit, high-level football athlete who will easily slide into nfl playmaking on a limited basis while he learns. short, and a couple years away from being a savvy, nfl route runner; he will be on the field a lot once he gets coached up.
Rd 5. Jeff Janis, Sag Valley -- skilled and competitive up to and after the catch. just might have enough to become a legit #2 someday. good size; good physicality.
Rd 6. Michael Companaro, Wake -- just enough athleticism to get on a nfl field, but more than enough savvy to be a contributor. he's a tough, dependable, detailed player who can be a quality backup, and could probably do some stuff on special teams.
Rd 7. Shaq Evans, UCLA -- mr all-around good player, but nothing special. kind of guy that may develop into a quality backup. if he becomes skilled at all the little things a nfl wr needs to know, he could be a backup on a roster for 10 years because he has no glaring physical weaknesses.
Rd. 7. Matt Hazel, Coastal Carolina -- how to describe this guy? he's like 70% aj jenkins and 30% cecil shorts. quick, smooth, shifty, fairly skilled guy who's not going to impress with his physicality, but can be a dependable backup if a couple injuries crop up. has always made plays. practice squad type for now.
Rd 7. Kain Colter, Northwestern -- more like a 4th round athlete. hasn't had many reps at WR, but has a lot of football talent that just needs developing. could surprise in a couple years as a part-time playmaker. reminds me of austin collie.
Rd. 7 George Atkinson, ND -- yeah, yeah, i know, he's a RB, but i move him to WR because his measureables say he can develop there. very good speed and body control, but has the stoutness of a WR not a nfl RB. my sleeper for developing into a starting nfl WR down the road.
