Why trade Crabtree for a late round pick? The 9ers have 13 picks next year already and he has not been a cancerous influence on the team. He may develop into a very good WR if there are other good WRs balancing out the attack and he and Smith work at gaining chemistry. Not sure what his trade value is but probably no higher than a fifth.
If all the new WRs work out and Crabtree shows well early in the year--that's the time to trade him if he doesn't fit into their plans...build up his value and try to get a third. Of course, if he is doing well and they are winning how likely that they trade him? Owusu and Jenkins may be excellent receivers so that would be one reason to trade him...if they demonstrated during camp that they will be starters soon. Read an article about Owusu having a knack for getting open at tough times and Jenkins has that reputation as well.
Crabtree, Manningham, Moss, Williams, Ginn---add Jenkins and Owusu and that does not seem realistic, too many WRs. Owusu knows the offense already so he may make himself indispensible. It would be fun to watch the WR TC drills with Owusu and Williams knowing them better than any of the others, except Crabtree (?). Can't see any of those guys except possibly Owusu on PS.
Aargh! The lull after the draft (and idle speculation) is painful.
