The San Francisco 49ers have 13 selections in the draft, and it is likely that more than one of those picks will be wide receivers.
The reason? Mario Manningham, Anquan Boldin, and Kyle Williams are in the last year of their contracts, and could all bolt in free agency come 2014.
Thus, it becomes imperative that Trent Baalke and company find some young talent that they can groom to replace the departing veterans, should they leave.
Last year, the 49ers selected wide receiver A.J. Jenkins in the first round, but he was rather unproductive and did not get much playing time during the season.
