The best position battle on the 49ers could be in the receiving corp. The 49ers bring back Torrey Smith as the only proven player. Jerome Simpson has produced in the past, but last year on the 49ers, he did not have much production. The other receiver that produced, Anquan Boldin, was not resigned and remains available in free agency.

The 2 players that have played, but have not consistently produced are Bruce Ellington and Quinton Patton. Chip Kelly needs playmakers on his team and these 2 receivers have good abilities. Perhaps Chip will be able to make use of their abilities.

DeAndre Smelter, who was drafted last offseason while dealing with an ACL injury, returns and is looking to make a name for himself. Chip Kelly's 1st signing as the head coach, Eric Rogers of the CFL, has size for the position and he produced when he was in the CFL. He could make a big impact for the offense.

Hopefully this group of receivers will be able to produce for Chip's offense. In a pass happy league, the receivers need to be able to make plays for the team to be successful.
