Michael Crabtree and Randy Moss are the top-two receivers in the Niners' run-heavy offense. CSN Bay Area sees Manningham "rotating into games as one of the top two guys on occasion." There's just not enough targets and vertical plays available for Manningham. We're avoiding him on draft day.
As for Eli, let's do some player comparisons:
Player A: 76 Receptions, 1,192 Yards, 7 TD
Player B: 39 Teceptions, 523 Yards, 4 TD
Player A is Hakeem Nicks. Player B is Mario Manningham. Manningham and Ballard were equal as Eli's 3rd target. Both has about the same number of receptions, yards and TDs.
