NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #10- San Francisco 49ers- WR Michael Crabtree

Mel Kiper says 49ers have several needs. Mike Singletary is a Defensive minded coach, I expect him not to pick offense here.

And I’m wrong!

ESPN writes- Despite leaving school after his redshirt sophomore year, Crabtree is an outstanding route-runner. He does an excellent job setting up his breaks and exploding out of his cuts. His ability to catch the ball in stride and determination as an open-field runner make him dangerous after the catch. Of course, it also helps that he can catch anything thrown in his area. A lot has been made about his lack of ideal timed speed, but we believe this is an overrated criticism. Although Crabtree isn’t a burner, he plays faster on film than he runs on the track.
