No to Adams. If we can't get a starter-caliber WR than get a specialist, like a great slot guy. The Niners have about 50 WRs like Adams.
I like M. Bryant. I hope the Niners select him. He may end up being their first WR pick.
The thing is that the niners won't be drafting for next year. The reason i picked a receiver like Adams is because he's very similar to Crabtree. Has great hands, uses his body to get separation, gets a lot of yac. It's very very likely Crabtree leaves after 2014, and when that happens, what would you prefer be the backup plan? To have Adams, already having a year in the system, under Crabtree's tutelage, or to try in find a rookie in the draft that has neither?
Similar thing with Boldin. Boldin has 1 - 2 years max. A WR that brings similar things to the table is Jarvis Landry from LSU. You draft him now. Let him learn and then incorporate him into the offense when Boldin is no longer there. Rookie WR's dont get a lot of snaps in this offense anyway. Ask Jenkins and Patton. It's all about 2 - 3 years down the line with a roster like the one we have. I do like Bryant a lot though. And he does bring something new.
