The issue with Jason Hill is that I have no confidence that he can stay healthy for a full season.

Jason Hill came on late last season too once he started getting more playing time. dont sleep on jason hill. he's gonna have a good year if he stays healthy
I think it was Maiocco who said that we should temper our expectations -- even Calvin Johnson, who is a beast by anyone's standards, needed a year to start to come on...
f**k no
If he doesn't start from day 1 and set rookie records in every category he will be a bust...


That is barely an exaggeration here on the zone,we have too many people here that think they know more than the experts.
I'm already prepared for people to be screaming bust after week two of the preseason...

Alex Smith is a bust!

Oh wait, has this thread not degraded there yet? Sorry, my bad... be back tomorrow.

So back on topic... Crabtree

I'm in no rush to see this guy be thrown into the lineup. We have enough talent on the team that we don't need to rush him.

I would like to see him get some playing time and get a feel for the NFL game. And I'd love to see him have Colston success. But I certainly wouldn't call him a bust if he doesn't.

I think if he had a year like Morgan did, that would be confirmation enough that he's going to be okay.

Even Jerry Rice wasn't that impressive as a rookie. I remember that guy dropping passes... and washing his hands (bonus points if you get this).

You're right. There were smatterings of boos during the 85 season. But, the team wasn't nearly as deep at receiver as this one is and I agree that they should go slow with Crabtree. Sticking him in for specific plays to start is the way to go.
We have a lot of talent at WR this season. I see us using Issac Bruce, Morgan, Hill, and Brandon Jones as the first line and then Crabtree will be worked in as rapidly as possible. That leavs Battle, Zeigler, and Spurlock fighting over the 6th spot. We know that this is the last year for Bruce so we will be stockpiling a bit.

I would see Crabtree in the 35-60 passes caught range. Obviously everything will depend upon what happens in TC. Everyone will get their shot at making the team. Crabtree clearly has a lot of talent. So I foresee Morgan, Hill, Crabtree as being our starting WRs for next year, or even at the end of this year. I would see Crabtree getting at least what Morgan go last year. If that happened, and we are winning games I will be happy.

Exactly.

I do predict that Crabtree most likely won't be starting on opening day. It will take him a while to get things going especially since he hasn't been catching or running routes.

35 catches/350 yards/3 TD's.

This. Rookie WRs struggle. Period.

fyi. morgan was drafted in the 6th round, not 5th.

and colston was taken in the 7th. draft position means nothing. talent is everywhere, its just a matter of finding it

You would think you would find it with the 10th pick in the draft. Rookie WRs are notoriously slow starters, but by mid-year I would expect Crabtree to be playing and having an impact.
i think everyone is underestimating crabtree...
we will see how he does coming off this injury that been holding him back
