Why I am Content With Our Receiving Corps

A seemingly lopsided majority of 49ers fans consider the wide receiver position to be one in desperate need of an overhaul. Many support either the acquisition of a wide receiver in the first round of the draft, a big time signing via free agency, or both. My personal belief is that the 49ers should by and large stand pat with a core group of Crabtree, Williams, and Morgan (who would have to be re-signed). I would support the drafting of a WR, but only in a later round, say the 3rd or after. I think this core group of receivers is sufficient and can be dangerous because in 2012 all three will be healthy, still young, and improving.

All three WR I just mentioned dealt with injury this season. I think many fans have a negative opinion of the receiving corps in part due to the fact that they were never healthy and hitting on all cylinders at the same time.

I won't argue the fact that they underperformed this season to an extent. However, I feel that many people perceive things as they are at the time, instead of considering what the future can bring. When I look ahead, I see three players with the high potential and ceiling to by dynamic playmakers. I see three players in their early to mid 20s that will be healthy for the 2012 season. Most importantly, all three have displayed progression on the field, and I strongly believe that this progression will continue into next season.

I am all for upgrading every position on the roster. I would support a front office decision to supplement the group currently in place. I simply disagree with the popular notion that the 49ers have a depleted WR corps that desperately needs an injection of talent.
