This group has TONS of talent and even more concerns. We know who the starters will be, but the order after that is debatable. I think this will be my favorite group to watch for camp battles.
Roster spots: 5-6
Locks: Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Mario Manningham (PUP)
Competition: Kyle Williams, A.J. Jenkins, Quinton Patton, Ricardo Lockette,
[/b]Long shots: Marlon Moore, Chad Hall, Joe Hastings, Chuck Jacobs
Outlook[b]: Many of you will argue that Kyle Williams or A.J. or Patton should be locks, but I can see situations where any one of them gets cut. Harbaugh has proven that he makes decisions in the best interest of the team so draft position, past achievements or perceived loyalty don't earn roster spots. That's great for the team and puts more pressure on these guys to perform. Crabs and Boldin will most likely start and Manningham looks to be headed to the PUP off the bat. That leaves 3-4 spots. Williams has the inside track because he has the most experience and he is also a punt returner. Jenkins, Patton, and Lockette all have tremendous potential and each has earned praise from Harbaugh. I have a feeling that the battle between these three will last through the preseason. Unless I am mistaken, the PUP is for the first six weeks of the season. The team will probably keep all six (Crabs, Boldin, Williams, Jenkins, Patton, and Lockette) until Manningham is healthy or until one of them falls far enough behind the others. The third group of guys would need a HUGE camp or a string of injuries to have a shot. Moore is probably the best of the bunch, but they seem to all have a common denominator. They have great work ethics, so the top guys will be pushed even harder.
