Do you believe the 49er will sign a true #1 WR AND a high draft pick as #2 WR?

Do you believe the 49er will sign a true #1 WR AND a high draft pick as #2 WR?

My guess all along has been that we bundle craps up with maybe a 2nd pick for a much higher pick in the draft. Another thot has been to package craps AND Kap for a run at the #2 or #3 pick in draft, Blackmon. I know there is a lot of sentiment for Kap, but i think Tolzien has #2 nailed down...tight. Hence, offer both for a blackmon.
What i don't see is getting a real bona fide #1 WR in FA and Baalke/Harbaugh keeping a #4 or #5 WR who is making #1 WR money. I guess they could offer craps less money for a #4 WR, but don't see that going over well. Also, drafting high will mean giving up something, and craps did have a run of circus catches at midseason before disappearing. Maybe he would be of interest along with another of our picks or as noted above bundled with Kap for a shot at Blackmon. I am curious how many think we keep craps and his #1 salary if we FA a #1 WR and move up for a high #2 WR pick.

crabtree is a slid #2 WR

we just need 1 #1 WR and our WR corps suddenly becomes good (assuming we resign morgan)
We're keeping crabs. WR will add 2 WRs fr either the draft, FA or both
My Prediction...

49ers will sign mid-level WR and draft another one in round 2 or 3. Crabtree ain't going anywhere.

+1. That's what Adam Schefter's saying and he's rarely wrong.
So for those of you who agree that we are going to sign a FA true #1 WR, plus draft a high #2 WR, you believe that baalke and harbaugh are going to pay craps as a #1 WR?
Do the math guys, that means we will be paying two guys to be #1 WR, and I don't think that going to happen. This is cap football, and paying two guys as #1 WR just doesn't happen. It only makes sense to me if they offer craps money he is worth, say a #2.5 or #3. That is the part that no one is addressing, and I have a hard time believing it.

English, I already knew the answer. I am just curious how we go about paying 2 guys #1WR money, esp when our current #1 is playing down to a #3. THAT was my real question...not if we were going to get a FA and a hi draft WR.

Dadiva, 9ers rule and marvin, we are in agreement that we get a FA #1WR and a hi draft pick #2 WR. If craps stays, you all really believe he is going to make #1WR money? THAT is the question. In this day of cap football, i just don't see Coach and Baalke keeping craps at a #1WR salary. Sure, if he wants to take less money, absolutely keep him. But keep him as an excellent #3 but at a #1 WR paygrade? Man, guys, i just don't see that. Everything these guys have done is by the book, if too expensive work on down the line. And keeping craps at #1money is way past the line that coach and GM have done to present. Therefore, i don;t see craps staying if offered #3 money, and i cannot even remotely believe that B& H are going to get stuck paying craps #1money while paying 2 new WRs #1 and #2 money. Do you?

This is not so much about who we are getting as it is about $$ ,and that was the question i tried to pose...altho i seemed to have stepped all over my genitalia getting to it.

he's not really making #1 WR money. That'd be like 10 or 11 mill/year. He's getting like 4 or 5. That's #2 money.

Crabtree is no worse than a 2 WR, He has improved his numbers every year he has been in the league, I dont get why people think we are in a rush to get rid of this guy.

Tell me about it. Funny how it goes unnoticed his numbers are improving every year.

Seriously. It's like, people don't think that we have enough WR threads going already.
We will sign a med level WR and draft another WR but not in the first round. I could see us signing someone like Manningham, Meacham or Chaz Shilans.
