Matt Maiocco on the wide receiver situation

Matt Maiocco has been unable to post to his blog but was able to respond to a reader's question submitted as a comment on his last entry.

Reader: Do you think Jacobs being anointed the 3rd WR assures him a roster spot, and if so, does that mean Gilmore is the odd man out, assuming Lelie stays, of course.

If you look at NFL production (as well as the financial commitment the 49ers made to him), it appears pretty clear Lelie stays. Gilmore caught just eight passes last season while playing 55 percent of the snaps. Jacobs played 433 fewer plays from scrimmage and caught just four passes fewer. Plus, Jacobs has been the most impressive WR on the team during camp.

Count former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith among those who would question Mac Jones being the draft selection at No. 3 overall. It is important to note that Smith likes the Alabama quarterback and describes him as a "solid player," but is he a prospect worth trading future first-round picks and a third-rounder? Smith doesn't see it. "I promised to never be the former player that is a hater but I swear I have a hard time understanding the 49ers would trade all of that for Mac Jones," wrote Smith in a tweet. "I like Mac and I think he will be a solid player but as a prospect I don't see the value in 'mortgaging the future' for
