Of course, and that's the kicker. At the same time, you've got some big-time prospects who could potentially be in the 2014 draft at receivers (Sammy Watkins - Clemson, Marquis Lee - USC, Jordan Matthews - Vandy, Austin Hill - Arizona, just to name a few). Who knows if we bring back Williams if he doesn't play well after that knee injury.
He's perfect for the 49ers too, he just tore his ACL.
To me, adding a WR this year made a lot of sense because its typically a position that takes time to develop, so if next year comes around and Boldin, Manningham and Williams are all gone, at leas they've got Patton with a year under his belt and Jenkins with two to add on to with draft picks.
