49ers traded a conditional 2015 4th-rd pick to Buffalo for WR Stevie Johnson.

This could be a HUGE steal for the 49ers as they now have one of the more impressive wide receiver corps flush with great hands. Johnson brings a fantastic possession-receiver element much in the way Anquan Boldin brought last season and now the team has a wide receiver corps flush with great hands. Adding Johnson to a mix with Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis is going to be a big factor for a team usually known for its run-first mentality and it's going to keep defenses from loading up in the middle and from limiting coverage to just one or two receivers. Now the question remains, can Colin Kaepernick get them the ball? He's going to have to improve his field of vision and learn how to spread it out more if this is going to be a truly elite offense. The potential is certainly there, but he needs to show signs of improvement. The only one who loses out on this deal is second-year receiver Quinton Patton who is now buried even further down the depth chart. ANALYST: Howard Bender
