2016 NFL Draft: Good Picks vs. Bad Picks for the San Francisco 49ers
By Peter Panacy
Good Fit: Wide Receiver Josh Doctson, TCU
Instead of a player like Ole Miss’ Laquon Treadwell, the 49ers would have better value if they elected to go with TCU wideout Josh Doctson.
Doctson is projected as a late first- or early second-round pick, according to CBS Sports. And there is little doubt to him having some of the best hands in the draft.
The 6’2″, 202-pound prospect may be a little lanky. But he excelled in TCU’s spread offense, according to CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler, which helped him reach 1,326 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns en route to being named a 2015 Consensus All-American.
He’ll need some polishing, and mastering pro-style routes may have to come with time. But there is little to question about his sheer ability and potential.
Should Doctson slip into Round 2, the 49ers wouldn’t go wrong by drafting him.
