He runs a 4.2 40 and actually mans up and catches the ball. I watched a lot of his career at Clemson and I think he could be a much better #2 for us then Ginn.

Marshall is the type of guy that makes rookie WRs acclimate a lot faster. Eddie Royal sure looked nice his first year.

He is projected to go in the 3rd round. I know a lot of people say "we got Marshall, let's forget about WR".

I think we need one more guy to really elevate this crew. Ginn should have blown up last year, and was basically sitting behind 3 #2 and #3 WRs the last few games.

An example of really good WR depth is the Colts. They lost Gonzalez, but had Garcon in the wings..I think Garcon is better then Gonzalez to be honest.

If we make a couple more trades to get picks, would you consider Ford in the 3rd, or do you have a sleeper in the later rounds..a Garcon, that you think is a better option?

If we're going to draft a guy cause he's fast we can wait until the 6th or 7th round. 5'9" WRs don't do much for me. Plus he's got great inline speed but his 4.44 20-yard shuttle and 7.00 3-cone drill tell me he doesn't maintain his speed in and out of his breaks. I'll pass.

Miami is going to target a WR/KR/PR guy somewhere in this draft. That could be Armanti Edwards, it could be Andre Roberts, it could be Antonio Brown, could be Jacoby Ford, could be Dexter McCluster, and there's another guy they like by the name of Tim Toone.

I agree with this. With all the 6th and 7th rounders we have, you have to think we'll go for a return specialist. Maybe even a Jacoby Ford or McCluster in rounds 2-4. Guys who can provide something to the offense as well, though not seeing McCluster as we don't have a 2nd as of right now. I'm thinking perhaps a Trindon Holliday or Brandon James in the 7th.

You need to watch this guy play and not sweat the combine so hard. He was an incredibly tough cover in a conference known for putting defenders in the NFL.

His height is a good point though. That being said, if we draft a WR I am sure it would be used as a rotating #2 with Hartline.

R&R unfortunately there is no way Ford falls to the 6th or 7th round. He is projected as a 3rd rounder. If he was in the 6th round it would be a no brainer.

I know that. I was referring to guys like Trindon Holliday and Brandon James.

Ok, well you need to communicate better because this is what you typed.

Brandon James is a killer late round pick.

look for Antonio Brown in the 5th(if and when we get one) or a 6th round...Miami worked him out,and liked him.He runs a low 4.4,and is good at returning punts,Has potential in the slot next to Bess,stretching the field,as he can really excell with Marshall dictating coverage.

I've seen him play I'm just not impressed. 4.2 speed and less than 14 yards per catch. He put up similar stats to Heyward-Bey who was completely overrated.

If he goes in the 3rd good luck to him. If he drops to the 6th or 7th then I say take a chance on him.

Heyward-Bey in the 1st round was one of the worst picks I have ever seen. It just didn't even make sense at all.

How about if Ford falls to round 4? I personally think he is a good value there.

Not really a fan of Ford. I'd consider him in the 4th, but I'd have to pass as we really need to get some defenders in this draft. There's some OLB's I like in that range, and some Safeties I really like in the 3rd. Not to mention Torrel Troup.

If I remeber correctly Korey Sheet already on the roster was a explosive KR returner for the 49ers last year. I was with you on the return duties and putting press on Cobbs but between Sheets and Tristian Davis we might have some answers there. I am betting on them doubling down on OLB, S probably NT thats 6 picks you know we will throw a pick at the OL which leaves you a pick or 2 for a fast TE maybe a CB etc.
