This. I think as Patton gets healthier, he could make some huge strides and very well end up as the #2 guy. I had high hopes for Jenkins, not sure if that's in the cards though, if I had to break it down right now,this is how I would see it.
2-Collie(experienced, smart, savvy vet, hopefully he can stay healthy).
I also think you'll see VD line up at WR quite a bit to give defenses a completely different look. He's been lining up there regularly in the preseason so I think there will be more of that during the regular season. I could see a situation where you have Boldin and VD on the outsides, Collie in the slot and McDonald at TE.
