You may have been joking but with the depth on this team...this may be the only way. If we had drafted a certain TE from Stanford I believe he may have played some this year. But other than that it's really hard to think of a rookie who would be starting for this team. Another WR who was more NFL ready? Maybe but would they really have a shot at starting?
It is almost shocking that the 9ers have no serious injuries so far this year. By this time last year we were getting low on WRs. One way to be sure to have room for the rookies is to NOT sign FAs at the same position...which would be dumb. There is no rule that says rookies have to start.
Ideally you would draft only players at the position where you know you will have injuries the next year...
