DeCastro and Zeitler were in range for a trade-up, and there were/are a lot of high-profile guards on the board. But remember, offensive guard is a position that can be plugged in. We picked up a guard last year in the fifth round with the thought that he'd be competing for a starting position one day. Still a lot of 2nd round guards that could be good, and still guys in five other rounds. I feel good about it.
As a wide receiver, he's not as highly touted as the other receivers, but the 49ers did their homework.. and they liked him enough to take him over the #1 tight end that Harbaugh personally coached, and a 6'4" speed demon of a wide receiver... as well as a bunch of very good offensive guards.
