Vernon Davis To Play More WR For 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are a man down at wide receiver with the loss of Michael Crabtree to an Achilles tear.  The one thing that can definitely help them is having a player versatile enough to move all over the field.

49ers tight end Vernon Davis can be an All Pro at tight end, but he’s versatile and athletic enough to probably be a solid #2 wide receiver on most teams.

The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat is reporting that the 49ers are definitely interested in finding out how good Davis can be, and during the most recent minicamp, Davis got all of his reps at the wide receiver position.

Davis lined up a lot on the outside, with Anquan Boldin sliding to the slot.  It puts a corner, safety or both in a definite bind when trying to figure out who’s going to cover who.

Davis would provide the 49ers with the outside speed factor that is lacking at the wide receiver position on the team right now.

It would also allow Boldin to play to his strength.
