With the 10th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft the San Francisco 49ers selected wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Crabtree was starting to get that “oh my god I’m dropping” look on his face, but it didn’t last long. Crabtree was the second WR selected in the draft, only behind Derius Heyward Bay to the Oakland Raiders.
The 49ers don’t have a great quarterback situation, but they are a team on the rise and despoerately needed a go to wide receiver. They haven’t had a player of Crabtree’s calibur since Terrell Owens.

The 2009 NFL Draft is just a day away. Michael Crabtree will soon become a member of a new team and a new league. It’s an exciting time for all Crabtree fans who have watching him excel at Texas Tech over the years. It will be a little sad when I have to update the theme of this website to a new team.
There’s no doubt in my mind Crabtree will land in the top 10 of the draft. He could go as high as No. 5 to Cleveland or as low as No. 10 to San Francisco. Neither of those teams have a wide receiver they can count own. Sure Cleveland has BRaylon Edwards, but they’ve been rumored to be shopping him… so I don’t think his future is with the Browns. Oakland and Jacksonville are also contendors for Michael Crabtree.
Where do you think he will go? I can’t wait for tomorrow!

Fianlly he’s getting healthy! Michael Crabtree, considered the top WR prospect in the upcoming NFL Draft, just had his cast removed the other day. Here’s a take from NFL.com
Texas Tech WR Michael Crabtree, who recently had foot surgery to repair a slight stress fracture on his left foot, had his cast removed Tuesday.
The cast was taken off by Dr. Carey in Dallas, nearly three weeks after Dr. Robert Anderson performed the surgery at the Carolina Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C. on March 4.
The operation was a success and the original report said Crabtree would be sidelined for 10 weeks. Crabtree will remain in a walking boot for another week and is expected to be back on his feet at that point.
One of the most productive wideouts in college football with the Red Raiders, Crabtree is expected by most observers to go in the top half of the draft.
His timetable for recovery should give him plenty of time to be ready for training camp in July.
Crabtree is now visiting 4 teams this week. I can’t confirm the teams just yet, but I believe three of them to be the San Francisco 49ers, the New York Giants and the Cleveland Browns.
