Bad at Scouting/Evaluating WR's?

If AJ and Patton bust.....I think we could throw a red flag up

Yes. Then we find someone that can come in and help us better evaluate talent at that position

Anyone know how long Patton is supposed to be out? I think a broken finger usually takes about a month to six weeks to heal. When did he break it again?
Baalke took one WR in 2010 who everyone has believed is a great WR in Kyle Williams. And he isn't half bad, not experienced at returns, but a good 3rd or 4th WR on a team. Now he needs to step up more.

Also Gordon was supplemental draft pick, 2nd rd one by Cleveland. Reason they had no 2nd this past draft.

Lol no. But having a "Morgan" wouldn't be a bad thing right now.

Not to mention...the right QB can make even the most mediocre WRs look better than they really are. Whether that be extending plays, getting the ball DEEP down field, fitting throws into small windows or just the threat of being gashed by the read-option. It's possible that with Kap behind center, he can turn our WR trash (Boldin being the exception) into something useful.

Btw, the most interesting WR to me is Lockette. Teams are going to cover him 1-on-1, but with that size/speed, if he can begin making plays downfield, that opens up a whole new world for this offense. If teams choose to use single coverage on him and he makes plays, they're f**ked....if they choose to roll a safety his way, that opens up the middle for our TEs and they're f**ked.

He's the guy that could make the biggest difference, IMO.

I really wish Lockette would get it because we need him.

I think that would be a great and fair benchmark. If Jenkins busts, we can start monitoring on his next WR draft and if either Patton or a new WR draft pick busts, I think is enough to hoist the red flag.
Patton will put this thread to bed. He is gonna end up 3rd or 4th in catches, I'll put money on it. He will ball out
I actually think we will be just fine at WR. I think everyone of those guys is a serviceable number 2 receiver. It's just that someone has to eventually be given the job.

I've said this before but I think our TE's will be the real number two. I expect Boldin, Davis an McDonald to collectively receive 65-70% percent of CK's pass attempts. Gore and the other WR's will get the rest.

Even if this was the case I wouldnt be too worried. Jenkins should not suck since he is a first rounder, but how many first round receivers have busted? A lot. I dont think he should get flak for Patton or Johnson since they are second half of the draft picks. I dont know who gets credit for Williams since it was during a weird situation. Id give him another 1 or 2 round receiver before judging.

Well, the thing is 1 round can already be pretty costly. Do you mean 1 year or simply 1 more pick ? I think you need to perhaps look at what other better WR picks are being selected by other teams and once you contrast that to Baalke's picks you will feel the full force of the wrong pick. I will settle with 1 more draft year, 2 is just too much for me to handle.
you can look at every team...every year.... and see many better players selected after their pick.

Jerry Rice told them to take desean and we didnt. i know that was the old regime but we wouldnt be in this mess if we took him. maybe jerry can be a WR consultant. he offered to train AJ at the hill and AJ backed out and still hasnt gone after over a year.
