WR Austin Collie

The zone is just too optimistic on some guys that have physical talent but bounced around the league without ever turning their physical skills into consistent pass catching skills. Lockette, Moore, Osgood all have size and speed, but might not ever be anything but a 5th or 6th guy who makes it on ST play. On the other hand, one of the least gifted guys, Chad Hall, has been catching quite a few.

Given that Jenkins and Patton aren't going to be able to grow if they can't even get on the practice field, they pulled the trigger on trying a couple of guys that could be a third or fourth receiver that you wouldn't be afraid of the throwing the ball too.

Baalke must be in desperation mode because 4 weeks before the season starts we don't have anyone who can catch OR cover at CB. Plus our 'star' QB has been acting like a street thug. Our GM has been a joke (AJ Jenkins) the last 2 years. In my view if we don't make and win the SB this year, he should be fired.




What kind of analysis?

I can't tell if this is a real person. lol

3 years ago? He had a pretty good season in 2011 where he was completely healthy. Last year he blew out his knee, but this guy has been nothing but consistent as a player and he's still fairly young.

Agreed, IMO Lockette will spend another year on the practice squad if he is eligible. After spending so much time practicing with Kaep one would think their chemistry would be established to at least stand out a little during practices, just look at what Hall is doing... thats what I was hoping for from Lockette. But even Jenkins has more catches than Lockette in practice and he is the summer scapegoat of the zone.

The Collie and Hawkins signings make it real interesting at WR, it might also mean Manningham will be sitting out the first 6 weeks of the season.

Yeah, he's no longer eligible. This is his last shot with the 49ers.

Hmm, yes and no. On the surface, Anquan, Crab, Mario and Kyle might sound pretty decent. But, what about planning for injuries ? You would think after losing Mario and Kyle last year, may be they would make sure we have enough receivers ? And I don't mean just any receivers, good receivers. What if we lose Anquan as well ? We would definitely go down then. I am quite sure they will now really try to address the WR issue properly finally come next year's draft. Besides, drafting 2 WRs is no big deal really, other teams do it, for example look at how aggressive the Rams were in this year's draft by trading all the way up to the 8th pick to get Tavon Austin and still they drafted Stedman Bailey in the 3rd round.

Baalke and Harbaugh clearly lack your vision and insight.

Send Jed your resume.

Damn. Our WR corps is really disappointing. Kaep better be as good as advertised b/c we only got two players on our team who we can rely on to catch the ball. I usually don't call players busts, but Jenkins doesn't seem like he's ever gonna get it and all these guys with all these greast measurables still ain't doing s**t. If Boldin goes down our WR corps is almost 2006-2009 bad.

By hanging out with black people and wearing his hat backwards.
I knew Kaep was a thug when he met McKayla Maroney and made that face.
