Bold=proof that your knowledge of the 49ers is severely lacking my friend. We don't need a WR that can stretch the field, we need a playmaker that can run up field? What does that even mean? What we need here is a deep threat to say it with me....stretch the field and help open up things in the running game, the short to mid passing game etc. Why didn't we go after Heyward Bay, Jacoby Ford? WTF are you talking about man? We have shown interest in several FA WRs who fit the mold I'm describing. AJ Jenkins? We had him and he sucked remember?
Nobody is arguing with you that the secondary needs help (at least I'm not) we need another CB, maybe 2 but we're fine at safety (starters, depth wouldn't hurt). I guess the easiest way I can break it down for you is this, we have 2 immediate needs, CB and WR. We have 3 picks in the first 2 rounds, this draft is extremely deep overall, especially at WR and CB. Passing up on one of those 2 needs would be beyond stupid in the first 2 rounds (another inaccuracy in your reply to me, I never said we need to spend a 1st round pick on a WR, I addressed the issue of waiting until the 3rd round, try & pay better attention next time).
Have you even paid attention to what the 49ers have done this off season? They have looked hard at a bunch of CBs and WRs and have only signed one min salary CB, what does that tell you about where the minds of this FO is at heading into the draft?
I think whats going on here is I am not doing a great job at explaining my points, or you just aren't getting it.
Implying that we need somebody to stretch a field is saying we need a WR with speed. The reason i listed those other WR are because they were drafted in high rounds because of their ability to stretch a field (aka they were fast).
I used them because they all turned out to be busts, and didn't play well for the teams they were drafted onto.
When I say I want a player who can run up-field, I'm talking about somebody who is agile and fast. I don't want a player that we just send downfield, if he can't catch then its pointless to even put him on the field (hence the WRs i listed)
I want somebody like a Golden Tate, or even a Keenan Allen, somebody that can run routes well and when they get the ball, have that breakaway agility and speed that will demand attention from the opposing secondary.
I want to bring up Allen again because of what he has done for the Chargers. By no means is Allen a fast guy, in fact he failed to break 4.7 in his combine.
But look what he has done for the Chargers, he has that play-maker ability I want and can still threaten defenses by getting up-field after a catch.
I have paid attention to what we have done this offseason, probably alot more than you have.
If you want to respond to my post, please give me the same respect I am giving you. I would hate to make you look like an ignorant D-bag on here.
