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.

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.

The team, after all, traded up to get him. And, it already has a veteran quarterback ahead of him, taking some of the

Siciliano asked Entz to break down what the Niners are getting from their young quarterback. "What they're getting is a competitor," Entz shared. "A very composed, intelligent, high-football-I.Q. player. He can make a lot of throws. He can make all the throws.
