I think if we keep 5 WRs it should be
Crabtree, Boldin, Patton, Ellington & Osgood
and if we keep 6 WRs it should be
Crabtree, Boldin, Lloyd, Patton, Ellington & Osgood
Although I gather that Osgood is only a special teams player, I think his value is higher than a 4th or 5th WR at the moment, since we hardly play with 4 or 5 WRs on a play and he'll see the field more, thus being able to contribute more especially considering his skill set.
Furthermore, I believe that we should go with only four RBs, Gore, Hyde, Miller and Tukuafu and two QBs since there are no QBs to develop at the moment and we're already screwed as it is w/ the backup QB situation. That would allow us to keep six WRs.
I could be convinced of keeping Johnson over Lloyd. But based on what we've been hearing through camp, it seems like Lloyd has actually out-performed Johnson and thus deserves to be on the team over SJ. Sad, since it would have been nice to keep SJ.
Ellington clearly has shown his value, so should be kept. However, I'm not sure about Patton vs. Johnson. I'd lean towards Patton, since camp reports have shown him showing more energy and he has the higher up-side long term.
