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

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.

 

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.

If you are just talking measureables....it is easily Ginn. That is why he was a first round pick.

Gettis? The guy fighting for a roster spot and being outplayed be AE? for a guy who was driving the don't draft a wr bandwagon you have to come with a better solution than David fuging Gettis.

It is going to be interesting to see Ginn play with Cam because he really hasn't played with QB's that can get him the ball deep. IF he can just catch a few deep balls and help lift the top off the defense it'll make things a lot easier for Olsen/Lafell and our backs.

Gettis doesn't play. Plain and Simple. So many people here seem to forget just how clutch Lafell has been lately. He makes the big catch at the big moment and Cam seem to go to him in those situations. This may not meet the criteria for the question but I just don't get the lack of love/respect for the one WR outside of 89 that has given us at the very least, something.

I refer you to the 1st post.

 

 A Statement like "based on measurment and skillsets kinda explains my answer". Funny how other people didn't have a problem with the plot here.
