Joshua Morgan was lost for the year due to injury
The other wide receiver spot has been a revolving door due to a myriad of injuries.
Joshua Morgan began the season as the starter, but was lost to injury in the fifth game of the year. He had 15 catches for 220 yards, prior to going down.
My feeling is Morgan is best suited as a No. 3 receiver on a top offensive team. He has good size but has trouble getting open against tight man coverage.
Braylon Edwards never really found his game in San Francisco, as injuries hampered him and he was eventually released prior to the 49ers' last game of the year. The timing of Edwards' release had a lot to do with his attitude, which went downhill as his playing time diminished.
Edwards had 15 catches for 181 yards and no touchdowns. With injuries to Morgan, Ted Ginn Jr. and Williams, the only reason the 49ers would have released Edwards with one game remaining in the season is due to a very poor attitude.
Ginn made his biggest impact as a return man. As a receiver, he had 19 catches for 220 yards and no touchdowns.
Kyle Williams was starting to come on and make an impact, when he suffered a concussion in the second-to-last game of the year. Williams had 20 receptions for 241 yards and three touchdowns. He is extremely quick and is best utilized as a slot receiver or third-down receiver.
Williams has battled injuries throughout his career and it remains to be seen how much the 49ers can count on him in the future.
Brett Swain was a midseason pickup and he started the final game against the Rams. For the season, Swain has only two catches for 15 yards. I expect Williams and Ginn to return for the playoffs, so Swain probably will see minimal action, if any.
