Lets Settle This: Who will be the #2 Receiver?

Lets Settle This: Who will be the #2 Receiver?

Kellen Moore.

Herman Moore.

Jay Moore
There are quite a few articles on Collie saying he's doing really well in practice. He's making himself be noticed by the coaches, he knows how to read coverages and find good spots. Hes a football player. I have no doubts that once he learns the playbook some more he will be getting first team snaps. He knows how to get open and catches anything thrown near him. Plus we all know that Kaep can throw the ball into tight windows.
I think Marlon Moore is better than the WZ thinks. Everything I've seen him do is impressive and he knows he's got the chance to step up and be the guy here in SF
Baalke needs to use some of our many draft picks and make a trade. This is a super bowl contender team you gotta go all out to win it while the window is still open.
As of today, IMO, if the team was playing the first game - it's Kyle.

Rams game in 2011, Bills and Bears game last year... flashes is the right word

I honestly do not know and here in why. The issue is that we don't use a #2 WR. Or even a #1 or #3. HaRoMan call "packages." So for instance (ala Randy Moss), with Lockette and Moore's speed, they may come in as the X and run a deep post route to open up the underneath stuff for Y & Z and the TE/RB's.

(PS: it's most likely to be Williams though)...meaning he may line up opposite Boldin the most to start.

Williams - see Collie (the most experienced in our offense by far)
Collie - very reliable vet but best suited for the Y (slot)
Jenkins - experienced at all 3 WR positions in our offense but can't seem to translate much on the field; seems to struggle with confidence/attitude
Lockette - prototypical size and speed but inexperienced in our offense
Moore - NFL experience but inexperienced in our offense
Patton - rookie with low expectations and may need a year to develop
Manningham - still probably needs a couple more months but a very polished route runner and very reliable
Hall - won't make the team
If Manningham is healthy, he is the best number two but he isn't. I'm a little surprised how everyone is anointing Collie. He had two good years (maybe one really solid one) in Indy. Manning makes a lot of guys look better than they are, so who knows how much of Collie's very short success is a product of a HOF QB making him look better than he is. Collie has good hands, but I'm not sure about his speed and athleticism. He had a good half quarter in a preseason game, mostly against guys who are going to be lucky to be on the PS, and everyone put him as the "best option for #2."

Kyle Williams is the better option, assuming he comes back at full strength. His hands are good, at least as good as Collie's, but he more explosive as an athlete. He was showing really good signs of becoming a quality slot guy before his injury.

There is a reason why Collie was around so late and cheap for the Niners. Teams didn't want him.

What the hell do you expect out of him in his rookie year?

Given that Harbaugh likes the WR's to learn all the WR positions, Jenkins got 3 passes thrown his way last year despite all the injuries, do YOU really think he's vying for the #2 right now, realistically? I'd say we have high hopes for him, realize he has a high ceiling but realistically, right now, the coaches will continue to set low and realistic expectations for him until he is full developed. Outside Williams, my two with the best chance to see the most snaps opposite Boldin are Lockette (Harbaugh/CK love him) and Moore (a Baalke find/pick). Collie has a chance to emerge as well IMHO but has a long ways to go b/c of the complexity of our offense and I doubt he is a solid run blocker.
Based on the catches Moore made its gonna be him!
