Chat Wrap: The future at running back

Here are some highlights from our San Francisco 49ers' chat, held Thursday:

Chris from Providence, RI: What do you think the 49ers brass will be looking for in this year’s draft out of the WR position? Speed or height?

Bill Williamson: Best guy. Period

Lucas from Sacramento, CA: Will we be seeing Quinton Patton again, he sure reminds me of Brandon Lloyd back in the day with great hands, speed, and allusiveness. Seems like an improvement to Manningham if you ask me!

BW: Unless another receiver gets hurt, I don't know if there's room for him on the 46-roster on game days.

Stan from Danville: Is Marcus Lattimore practicing? Is this Gore's last year as the starter?

BW: Lattimore practiced for three weeks. That window closed last week. He is shelved until next year. He is expected to play. Gore will likely be in mix with Lattimore next season.
