Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: In a draft that seemed to be short on elite talent, the 49ers might have grabbed one with the No. 10 overall pick. Crabtree is a tough, physical receiver who will win over Singletary with his willingness to mix it up as a blocker. Maybe this wasn't as much a great pick, as it was lucky that he fell in the 49ers' lap. A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 1/10 - Michael Crabtree, WR, 6-2, 215, Texas Tech...The 49ers were ecstatic that Crabtree was there when it was time to pick. He is coming off surgery for a stress fracture in his left foot. The club expects him to be 100 percent for the opening of training camp, and likely win the starting job at split end. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *Michael Crabtree News
12/17/13 - WR Michael Crabtree recorded his first touchdown reception of the season.
12/03/13 - WR Michael Crabtree tied his career-high with a 60-yard reception against St. Louis.
11/26/13 - WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles) is expected to play against the Rams after being officially activated Tuesday. He has not played this season.
11/24/13 - WR Michael Crabtree could be activated before Monday night's game to make his season debut against the Washington Redskins.
"I would look at that as a decision over the next 48 hours," coach Jim Harbaugh said Saturday.
The 49ers pulled back Crabtree's activity after his first week of practice, rather than risk a setback as he recovers from a torn Achilles. Once he practiced on Nov. 5, he started the clock on the 21-day window for the 49ers to activate him from the physically unable to perform list or shut him down for the season.
Crabtree needs to be activated by Tuesday, but the 49ers could just deactivate him on game days for a few weeks if necessary.
Crabtree, who led the 49ers in receiving last season, had surgery to repair the injury in May. He was injured during a spring practice.
11/21/13 - -- WR Michael Crabtree will likely be added to the team's 53-man roster on Tuesday, the day after the 49ers play at Washington. He did not practice Thursday, but was working out on a side field.
"We'll make that decision on what we see in practice," Harbaugh said.
