Out of the WR's on the roster who aren't 89.

Recommended Posts

Who has the best Skill sets and Measurable to be a number 1 wr?

 

I pick Gettis.

 

Plain and simple

 

You can't teach 6'3 with 4'3 speed. He wasn't bad his rookie year. He doesn't have bad hands and he's still young.

 

 

Only Negatives is this knee injury he hasn't been able to come back from yet and this mystery reason why he isn't getting more opportunities.

 

 

Who do you think??

I'm not sure about #1... cuz I don't think he's had enough on field playing time to prove that.

 

BUT... I agree that that the "mystery" reason he's not getting reps is still mind boggle'n.

I hope there is a legit reason for it... and then I'll admit I was wrong that I thought he could contribute... if that's the case. But as of right now, I don't see what the issue is. 

 

I am not sure at the moment tho, per your question, who could be a #1 at this point. I think I'd have to see what happens with the WR's in games to decide that. (if any of them are that person)

It was hard for me as well but just answer who has the best chance at developing into one based on skillsets.

It would have to be Gettis, he has great speed and great size.

 

He actually outperformed LaFell during their rookie years.

 

I actually think that he is 100% but being that he hasn't played or even practiced much under Coach Rivera, he is going to look out of place and like a bottom tier wide out until he either gets it; or is cut.

 

The only other person you could really argue is Hixon and his only argument is that he has never been giving a real opportunity to prove himself as number one or two.

 

I'd like to give Lamont Bryant a nod, but I have only seen him briefly and that was at training camp,

 

Number One

Steve Smith

 

Tools/Measurments To Be A Number One

David Gettis

Domenik Hixon

Lamont Bryant

 

Good Depth

Teddy Ginn Jr: A good slot option/deep threat and a great specialist.

Brandon LaFell: An ideal number three wide receiver, but an average number two.

Kealoha Pilares: 6th string deep threat that can run smoke routes

Armanti: Possible number four wide out if he puts it all together.

Joe Adams: Like Teddy Ginn, possibly a good slot guy if he can focus and get it together.

I agree I just wish someone with insight can give us a clue why this isn't working right now.

Hopefully Gettis is given a proper chance, he was the only bright spot on that 2010 team.

 

How many guys, if any; can say that caught a touchdown pass from Brian St. Pierre...

First, I don't think there is a #1 on this team outside of Smitty.  But to answer your question I would say Ginn.

 

Gettis reminds me of Carter from a couple of years back but a little better.  All the speed in the world but cannot stay on the field.

 

I think Ginn has been under utilized in his career and seems to be showing he has the tools as well.

Carter had poor hands though, he could be wide open and flat out drop the pass.

 

Regarding Ginn, I've been told (countless times) that he plays scared once the pads are on, and tends to shy away from contact. So I will withhold my full judgement on him until training camp when Mike Mitchell is back there waiting to line him up and drop his ass.

You make valid points about Ginn being under utilized and Gettis injury problems. My only thing is Ginn hasn't been know for having good hands and his fear of contact.

 

I think a number 1 should be able to go over the middle with no problem and that's a ? mark for Ginn.

Forgot to mention...

 

Realistically, I don't see another number one on this roster.

 

I see a...

 

- A great number one (Smith)

- No number two (?)

- A great number three (LaFell)

- A great number four (Hixon)

- Possibility of two good slots (Ginn, Adams)

- Great depth (Edwards, Pilares, Gettis, Bryant)

You might be right.  What gets me is he had a good year a Miami before he signed with SF.  Then he goes to SF with a nobody at QB and disappears.

 

A. Smith's favorite target was his TE.

 

I think he has came here with a chip on his shoulder and is out to prove to god and everyone he can be a threat as a WR.   I know we signed him so he could have that opportunity.  KR/PR is IMO a backup plan just in case he didn't pan out as a WR.  He is currently our best KR/KR on the team.

Gettis is an enigma...he gave us a taste of how good he could be and then disappeared from our lives for a couple of years.Now he comes back but in some mysterious way cannot find his way back to getting playing time.
