    I would really like Moore, even though it seems he kind of quit last year. In fact I think he was benched for lack of concentration/drops. But that might help to precipitate a trade if they view him as disgruntled. He has nothing to look forward to in Flynn/Wilson.

    "Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen confirmed in his post-game presser that WR Denarius Moore was benched in the Browns game for dropped balls: "Dropped a couple balls, and we got to make plays when you've got opportunities...It wasn't from a lack of effort, but we've got to make plays when we've got an opportunity."

    I think they really like Streater and Criner, so they may view him as expendable. Plus they should be getting Jacoby Ford back.

    I'm not at all. I'd be fine with them looking for one of their recent draftees to step up. Doss, Thompson, Streeter, Williams...

    Jacoby Jones was cut after the draft last year. I think it was the first week in May. There will be players like that cut this year as well.

    Is Boldin available?

    Clearly, that is why they drafted them.

    Can Doss actually perform in real games?
    Is Streeter anything more than a career project?
    Is Thompson an NFL caliber WR?
    WIlliams seems to me a career ST's guy as best.

    These guys haven't inspired much confidence so far. Granted, we have really small samples. Torrey didn't look so hot in the beginning either. I am content to see how things shake out in camp, but I am not opposed to bringing someone in via trade.

    He could be. The 49ers just had to restructure Patrick Willis to get enough space for their draft picks. They have a ton of receivers. There is no guarantee that Boldin will make their roster at that high cap number.

    Agreed...lets see what we have in training camp. If we feel that we need another WR, someone of value will shake free when teams need to cut down.

    I think we will see a lot of 2-headed monster running style with Rice and Pierce, especially if our D performs as good as they currently look on paper so far.

    And I also think Caldwell could utilize our TEs and FBs more, especially Dickson and Jusz in more creative ways than Cameron could have ever dreamed of.

    Whether I like it or not, I'm pretty sure our X and slot WRs are already among the 90-man.

    But I'm not so concerned about the depth chart as I am concerned about JJ12. I know he's a vet, but his mind is so far away from football right now...

    On top of that, last year, I think he felt he had something to prove. With a ring, an all-Pro selection, and one of the most memorable plays in NFL history in his lock box, is he going to work as hard this OS as he (apparently) did last OS? Where is his mind going to be? I might be overstating and overthinking things here, but I have more confidence that Doss, Streeter or Thompson will step up and make a strong challenge for the #3 than JJ12 being a reliable asset on offense.

    I feel somewhat similarly about Jacoby. Last year, he was mostly a 10-20 snaps per game player on offense, and I guess there's a feeling that he could build on that and be a bigger contributor this year. I doubt it. Let him stick as the situational #3/#4 who comes in to stretch the field opposite Torrey in certain packages. He'll probably never be as good in that role again as he was last year, frankly, and he certainly won't be the starting X receiver next year.

    So who will be? Not Doss--based on what we saw last year he is simply too soft to tolerate contact off the line and at the point of the catch. The Ravens seemed to know that and frequently threw him jump balls hoping he'd draw PIs. It didn't work. Aaron Mellette didn't show anything on the tape I saw to suggest he's any different.

    So you're left with Laquan, Reed, Thompson, and Streeter. For different reasons, I just don't see how any of those 4 are capable of handling starting WR duties. Forgive me, but out of every spot on the roster (even LT), I feel worst about the starting WR spot opposite Torrey.
