How Top WRs in NFL Draft Would Fit in San Francisco 49ers Offense

Even after inking Anquan Boldin to a two-year extension, the San Francisco 49ers could use another wide receiver to add to their aerial arsenal.

With three picks in the first two rounds of the 2014 NFL draft, the Niners should land at least one of these wideouts.

Boldin and Michael Crabtree are both physical receivers who have no fear making catches in traffic. Neither has the ideal size of a dangerous red-zone option or the top-end speed of a legitimate deep threat. 

Of the following nine receivers, some would fill the speed void, while others would fill the size void. A few are more well-rounded like Boldin and Crabtree. 

The 49ers could go any which way. Above all—considering Crabtree is entering a contract year and Boldin is 33—they'll want a player who can contribute soon and be productive for years to come.  

The receivers are ranked in order of Bleacher Report draft expert Matt Miller's post-combine big board
