49ers select WR Dante "Do something...anything" Pettis in 2nd round

Hopefully he ends up playing closer to 200. Lots of Wr's come in overly slim to the combine to try to boost their skill measurables.
Good pick. Anyone that makes jake Browning look like a college qb has to be very good.

Looks like a pretty good player that can do it all. Will probably start next to Garcon.

Seriously doubt he starts ahead of Goodwin. I think he will see a lot of action as a 3rd WR and perhaps take Taylor's spot as the #1 slot receiver. He will make this unit much more explosive.

I didnt like trading up and giving up a 3rd to get him but I do think he will be a big contributor.
3 inches taller, identical weight, and almost identical draft position as Mark Duper, who had an excellent career starting with year 2. I'm seriously smelling Shula/Marino's offense warming up. All Shula's wideouts, and he used them all, were short, quick, breakaway guys.

Kyle just said Pettis beats press very well. I trust the internet scouting report more.

Sure I think shanny has the right to pick a draft crush. Probly will be a good player. But, we have lots of needs not being met. Seemingly higher than a plesant add to our wr corps.

Obviously they think they met more needs during free agency than most on this board
I was shocked by the pick a bit but when an offensive genius storms up the draft board to grab a guy like this it just has to get you pumped for what we might have here. You think Shanahan and Lynch didn't know where kuiper and Mayock had this guy. Shanahan is as good as anybody alive at evaluating wide receivers and he is straight up fist pumping while the selection is made. Do you really want us to find a guy that shanny wants this bad and just wait around and hope everybody else drafts wrs per kuipers board. This guys ball skills, polish, and brain paired up with shanahans schemes and jimmy g's arm. I am fracking chomping at the bit to see this guy on sundays.
Based on where we picked him, he was clearly given one of our 30 1st-round grades.
