The wide receiver position was a big question mark this offseason, as Joshua Morgan departed for free agency, the legendary Brett Swain wasn't brought back, and Michael Crabtree still hadn't quite come into his own. Nobody can suggest that the 49ers didn't make a concentrated effort to improve the position, of course. They signed Mario Manningham and Randy Moss in free agency, and made A.J. Jenkins their first-round pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. That being said, the position turned out to be very poor last season. Their were significant injuries to both Manningham and Kyle Williams, the No. 3 wide receiver, and Jenkins rarely saw the field. When Chad Hall was introduced into the mix, we knew the 49ers were in trouble. We're going to run through each receiver and recap their season below. Then, we'll take a brief look forward to free agency and possibly the NFL Draft.
