Boldins Career #s:

2003: 16 games 1377 yds 8 TDs
2004: 10 games 623 yds 1 TD
2005: 14 games 1402 yds 7 TDs
2006: 16 games 1203 yds 4 TDs
2007: 12 games 853 yds 9 TDs
2008: 12 games 1038 yds 11 TDs
2009: 15 games 1024 yds 4 TDs
2010: 16 games 837 yds 7 TDs
2011: 14 games 887 yds 3 TDs
2012: 15 games 921 yds 4 TDs

During his 3yr stint in BAL:

94% of games, 4.1 receptions / game, 58.8 yds/game, 0.3 TDs/game

If he continues that trend...

15 games, 882 yds, 5 TDs

So, he'd be about 250 yards and 4 TDs short or replacing Crabtree's production.
This thread is now more relevant than ever.
When Boldin had Kurt Warner throwing to him, he was consistently over 1000 yards even playing with Larry Fitzgerald. We'll just see what Kaepernick can do with him. In interviews, he seems pretty impressed with the way Kaepernick throws.

He also was mid 20s. I doubt he can match his production with Warner, but even if he can match his BAL #s, I think we can get more production from Davis and McDonald.

Still, we're going to need Jenkins, Patton, and/or Lockette to step up.
We need Davis to have the same magic with Kap as he had with Smith. We saw glimpses of it in the Atlanta game.

He had a great post-season in general:

Davis had 12 receptions, 254 yds and 1 TD in the playoffs... 4 rec/game 85 yds/game 0.3 TDs/game

If he could extrapolate that success for the full season...

64 rec 1360 yds 5 TDs -- doubtful he'd get those yards, but he could definitely get more TDs without Crabs.
So we will start the year with 5 and maybe have 6 when Manningham comes back...

Crabs needs to have a speedy recovery!!!!
Solution, move McDonald to the slot (a lot) and use Lockette/Jenkins on the outside. Then you have McDonald destroying teams on short and mid-range soft-zone routes with VD exploiting underneath and deep seam routes AND the secondary has to be careful on deep come-back and out-and-up routes along the sidelines. Or we can just run it more. LOL

I wouldn't expect that kind of production, but I do believe Vernon Davis is capable of being a 1,000 yard, 70 + catch TE. He just needs the opportunities.

This, I want to see Roman utilizing more schemes to get VD the ball, he's still an absolute beast and it amazed me how frequently they were content just to have him block and not utilize his outstanding athleticism and physicality to get open and make plays down the field.

More LMJ and Hunter in the passing game too I would imagine, I agree McDonald sees more action as an Hback/receiver now.

This too. Not sure why they didn't utilize LMJ more as a slot receiver, with his speed and quickness, he'd be a major pain in the ass for a defender to keep up with, with his ability to run with the ball in his hands, he'd be a nightmare out in the open field.

Lockette too??? damn . I heard about Hall , didn't read about Lockette burning him. Well I guess if Jenkins wants to impress, he knows who to line up against now. so the question is ... is Cully that bad or Lockette starting to emerge . Hope it s just a case of a veteran not giving 100 %, and the new guys really trying too hard to impress.

It's OTAs. I think PJ Fleck looked good too at this point in the season. Don't read too much into that.
