I like it. Let's look at it in real formation-terms:
X (outside, left) = Moore, Baldwin (Williams)
Y (slot) = Williams, Patton, Collie
Z (outside, right) = Boldin, (Baldwin)
I'd be more inclined to swap out Hall for Collie as they are the same exact player but Hall has no injury history AND plays ST (returner as well). Collie will have to be light-years ahead of him as a WR to overtake him but rght now, Hall has been our pre season game MVP thus far. Also, Baldwin has no clue re: our playbook. Lockette is years ahead of him. Baldwin will be #7 while he learns the playbook as we need players who can step onto the field right now. Lockette is also a stellar gunner (over Baldwin).
So I'd be more inclined to this...for now:
X (outside, left) = Moore, Lockette
Y (slot) = Williams, Patton, Hall
Z (outside, right) = Boldin, Baldwin
Note, Williams can play all three WR positions and will take many at the X. Hall has also lined up at all three this pre season. Lockette and eventually Baldwin, can and will play both outside positions. Williams, Patton and Hall should tear it up in the slot. 4 of the 7 are also very good ST players (Moore, Lockette, Williams and Hall).
