I am sure most of you are aware there is a huge on-going heated debate about whether AJ Jenkins will be a bust and even cut. There has already been a poll done on how much more time we should give him to prove himself.
What I thought might be interesting to see is which WRs will make the 53-man roster. Assuming the 9ers are going to follow the same model as last year by keeping 6 WRs on the roster and assuming 3 of the spots have already been filled, namely Anquan, Kyle and Mario (being able to come back by the start of the season), which 3 WRs do you think 1) should and 2) will make the roster ? Initially, I was going to do a poll, but there are really just too many combinations. The list of the remaining receivers to pick from are as follows :
My pick are as follows :
Chad Hall (simply because he has experience plus Vernon's positive comments)
Quinton Patton is a rookie and we can still give him a little more time. I also like Chuck Jacobs, this guy seems to be an instinctual catcher, he could well be a dark horse. Kassim Osgood will probably just stick with the special teams on kick recovery.
My pick are as follows :
AJ Jenkins (simply because I feel is his 1st round pick draft status, Baalke and Harbaugh will give him his very last chance to prove himself before they give up on him as opposed to outright preseason performance)
Originally posted by cools:
Boldin will be the starting Z/flanker, and move into the slot in 3 reciever formations
Williams will win the job as the X/splitend (I expect Vern will get some time here also)
Jenkins will rotate in as first off the bench
Moore will be the #4, maybe even the #3, active on game days as a ST gunner
Lockette will make the 53, but could lose his spot when Manningham comes back
Patton makes the 53, but is basicly red shirted, In-active on game days unless someone gets dinged up
* Ive been on the Jenkins Jalopy since we drafted him, but may be jumping off soon
Actually, I have already factored in Mario. The locks will be Anquan, Mario and Kyle. I guess what you are saying is your picks for the remaining 3 spots are Jenkins, Moore and Lockette. I am basing it on a WR quota of 6 just like last year's model. But, if you think Patton will be red-shirted and inactive, we will exceed the 6 spots.
