Honestly I hope Crabtree leaves. I think Richard Sherman psyched him out with all the trash talk and "MEDICORE" talk.
Boldin is "the man" at WR on this team. Seahawk DB's mess with Crabtree, but know better than to mess with Anquan Boldin cause he'll -itch slap you.
I feel as though the 49ers can try and move up next year and get that big speed outside receiver. Only speedster's worthy of being drafted in the 1st were Sammy Watkins and Beckham and they went early.
I think next year's class may have some speedsters that the 49ers can pick up in the late first. Or they can go trade route- Josh Gordon?
We'll see what happens.
There was a HUGE amount of underclassmen in this years draft, especially with WR's. They also usually take time to develop. The chances of us getting a game ready WR to replace Boldin in the 2015 draft is unlikely. Very unlikely. We'll end up having to bring in a free agent and dole out the cash.
