NFL Draft 2012: 8 WRs the San Francisco 49ers Should Be Excited About

The San Francisco 49ers need to hunt for a No. 1 wide receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft. This became apparent after Alex Smith only completed one pass to a receiver (Michael Crabtree) in the NFC Championship game. 

With Crabtree, Vernon Davis and Kyle Williams as his top targets, Smith was able to have his most productive season since entering the league in 2005.

If the 49ers are able to re-sign Josh Morgan (San Francisco's leader in receptions before suffering a season ending injury Week 5), the offense will have adequate depth at the receiver position. 

Still, they are missing a true No. 1 target.

The 49ers should be excited for the NFL Draft. Each round presents the opportunity to find the player they have lacked since losing Terrell Owens: an intimidating wide receiver defenders hate playing against.

This slide show will highlight eight wide receivers who can take the 49ers' offense to the next level.
