Round 6, #182, the San Francisco 49ers selects Ronald Johnson (WR) USC

just more competition for our current WR's. I like it. Kyle Williams, Zeigler, Morgan and Ginn will all need to step up their game.

yeah, the WR battle should be very interesting. I really want to see what Williams can do when healthy. I think Johnson is his biggest competition. I like Ginn as a returner but if he doesn't start doing something on offense, then IDK. We just drafted two guys with return experience...

And I think this summer is obviously do or die for Zeigler.

I'm tired of oft-injured speedy WR's

for sure. i'll give Williams a break though since its just one year. but a late round WR + injury + new coaching staff + similar player just drafted by said coaching staff + WR logjam = Williams has to step it up this offseason, whenever the team is allowed to do its thing.

Willaims wont be going anywhere, as of now

Crabs
Morgan
Ginn
Williams
Ziggy
Johnson

Ziggy could be t he odd man out

Hope so, don't know what people see in him

the guy has world class hands and could be the best route runner on our team, just is not very fast or quick and is very thinly built

perfect redzone target?

Crabtree, Morgan, Ginn, Johnson, Williams -- barring any injuries -- will be the 5 receivers we go with.

Im thinking Johnson will be looking at the #2 spot pretty soon with Williams in the slot. Ginn can drink water and return punts. Morgan.......?

morgans decent dude i think he had 600-700 yards last year that must be one of the best out of all the #2 WR in the nfl

considering Crabs wasn't doing a lot it wouldn't surprise me, I do know that competition at WR will be very good this year

Injuries usually come into play and reduce competition, but if none are significant I agree with you. Johnson could push Morgan and Crabtree. Maybe Crabtree would even practice during training camp!?

I never want to see Morgan short arm another long (TD) pass again.

The good thing is all the WR's will be working with a clean slate and will each have to impress the coaches. The best 3 should be on the field!!

Crabs and Morgan will be our starters. Crabs because he has the most talent and Morgan is built to be more of a WCO receiver than any other offense we've had. Unless another receiver steps up to lay the lumber in blocking like Morgan does, he ain't going anywhere. They will probably keep Ginn as the other outside option and then Williams and Johnson as our slot options. With 3 TE's, 2 being great receivers as well as Gore and Hunter possibly lining up as WR's too... Ziggy is going home now that his #1 fan is no longer coaching him.
How fast is he because from the highlights, he looks slow. He gets caught from behind after the catch, doesn't create much separation and couldn't turn the corner without getting caught.

Samething I noticed. So regardless of his .40 time he's just slow in pads. Good red zone target though.

Looks quicker than fast, which is perfect as long as he knows how to run his ass to the first down marker and get open.

He does look like an amazing route runner and quick in and out of breaks, rarely anyone around him when he catches the ball. Usually means he is getting out of his breaks before the CB's can react and get back into position.
lol

I dont know man, if you take blocking out of the equation, he may be better Morgan. The guy gets open and makes some nice catches.
