Question: I am wondering about the receiver situation for us. I am glad we have Jackson, as I believe he is better than Lelie. My question is which two receivers will start? I like Battle, and want him to start as the No. 2 receiver. Do you think that there is any way Lelie will be the third receiver, with Jackson and Battle starting?

Answer: No, because Battle and Jackson play the same position. The 49ers want their "X" receiver, or split end, to be able to stretch the field. That should be Lelie's forte. If he loses the starting job to anyone, it would be to rookie Jason Hill, who is behind him on the depth chart.
