Crabs was 10th Overall.... I wouldn't say the 49ers suck at drafting WRs, I'd say they're not very good at utilizing whatever WRs they have.
Besides Boldin and Crabs, no WR that comes here has done much of anything. Crabtree was the first 1,000-yard receiver in over a decade.
If you think about it, the only WR that was expected to make an impact (due to draft position) has been AJ Jenkins. Other than him, the 49ers haven't taken a WR very high at all. K-Dubb was a 6th rounder, so was Ron Johnson and Josh Morgan. I don't even expect 6th rounders to make the 53-Man Roster let alone contribute.
So, the 49ers could go ahead and trade up to #1 and draft a 27 year old Jerry Rice, it won't matter if they won't utilize him properly. I'm hoping things change and Quinton Patton has a breakout season.
