Imagine if the 49ers had taken AJ Green instead of CK.
I know that most people only watch the ball rather than the rest of the players. That is understandable. Watching the OL block or a receiver running around on the field without the ball is not exciting even though very informative. However, if anyone watched much of the Bengals this last season, they would have seen Green making some unbelievable plays despite being double teamed most of the time. Further, those double teams freed up other Bengal receivers to be easily available for Dalton.
Green made Dalton's job much easier. Want proof? Go look at Dalton's numbers in the couple of games where Green was out or slowed by an injury.
The competition I am most looking forward to next season is the one at WR. I fully expect the 49ers to sign a solid FA "possession" WR as well as draft AT LEAST two, including using the #1 pick, perhaps even packaging other picks to move up to draft one of the premier WRs coming out this year.
