Besides Randy Moss and Vernon Davis, the 49ers have a talented corps mostly made up of quick chain-movers. Going into 2012, the 49ers have Michael Crabtree, Kyle Williams and Ted Ginn Jr. returning—all of whom had their shining moments at times during the season.
In addition to that, San Francisco signed wide receiver Mario Manningham who brings a dynamism to the team. Crabtree provides pretty solid hands, and with the added talent to the roster, some more opportunities may open up for him.
Williams and Manningham bring straight quickness and explosiveness to the 49ers. The Kyle Williams of the 2011 regular season proved to be a great up and comer with starting ability someday, and that's the player we should remember. He's going to be eager to prove himself and rebound after his mistakes in the NFC Championship game.
Manningham has shown great hands at times and just a raw ability to manifest plays. Like Williams, he's quick but plays with a degree of toughness. Manningham is a great new addition, but all of these players should be able to contribute when asked to step up.
With Moss and Davis taking the top off the defense and pushing the defense back, the 49ers' other receivers will fill in the empty space underneath, leading to more touchdowns.
