It isn't really BS, this organization as a whole has bad luck with WRs. Crabtree was a given that fell in our lap, besides Josh Morgan and Kyle Williams who have we drafted that is respectable or still in the league?
Jury will be out on Patton for a while but Josh Morgan is probably our best pick at WR in the last decade+
Crabtree was a top10 pick for a reason and clearly worth it, can't say we "targeted" him when the 2009 FO blatantly said he fell to us and that they "had to take him".
I agree. It's more about being able to develop
a player than it is being able to "draft" a player. Like you said, Crabtree fell the Niners at #10. Let's emphasize the fact that we're talking about a wide receiver that "fell" to #10. Crab was a rare talent that would've gone even higher had he not been injured.
Kyle Williams is a #3 WR at best, but more like a #4/PR-type-of-guy. That's nothing to write home about. Josh Morgan is decent, but he is not a starting-caliber receiver.
