News, notes and reader questions about the San Francisco 49ers

Is this the round for a receiver?

Dwayne Bowe is off the board. So is Robert Meachem, Dwayne Jarrett, Craig Davis and Sidney Rice. So, nervous 49ers fans are starting to ask, when is our team going to take a wide receiver?

Mike Nolan thinks it’s still going to happen. After picking Joe Staley in the first round, Nolan noted that this draft not only is deep in receivers, it has a lot of the big-bodied receivers the 49ers prefer.

"This is the year of the measurable wide receiver – height, weight, speed – the big guy," he said. "There are not a bunch of mighty mites out there. … There are several of those guys and we’ll see how it goes."

Some wideouts the team could still take in the third round include Jason Hill out of Washington State, Jacoby Jones of Lane College and Paul Williams of Fresno State.
