Yes, and I like this approach of having good solid players spreading the field. Along with the TEs and RBs the 9ers already have, this would be awesome. Morgan and Williams, along with Crabtree and Meachem, would be a very solid group. Wondered about Meachem because he was so good and not seeing many balls--glad to hear it is due to quality depth and not an injury. If he is a character guy as well then the 9ers wouldn't have to worry about meltdowns as in NYJ!
Yeah, Meachem has continued to impress me. Neither he nor Crabtree have the lofty status of overshadowing the other. Both are showing roughly the same talent level right now, yet Meachem offers more in size and speed, and would be better than anyone we could get in the draft.
When Meachem was a draft prospect, there was this great article about him. Talked about how he grew up on a farm... everything was, "yes, sir... no, sir"... All kinds of great quality instilled in him. We have cap room that will go quickly once we start turning to re-signing our own FAs... but the only play I am wanting us to make as far as outside targets... is this guy. Then, if for whatever reason we can not? Then, I'll look around some more.
