The San Francisco 49ers know that their biggest target this offseason is probably a wide receiver. The receivers they have are probably inadequate to maintain a serious offense, and they'll definitely need someone else out there from the draft.
Matt Mayock has someone in mind.
Mayock said LSU WR Rueben Randle is a good fit for the 49ers but might be gone if, as expected, he runs an impressive 40 in Indy ...— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) February 15, 2012
Randle is ranked 4th among Mayock's receivers, and could be a value bet late in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Is he the typical fit for the Niners? Who knows, but he does fit the mold of a typical athletic receiver that can really provide another complimentary figure on the outside. It probably won't be the number one option the Niners covet, but Randle can be plenty useful for San Francisco.
