The San Francisco 49ers have released their highest-paid wide receiver, Torrey Smith, according to Steve Smith, the former All-Pro wide receiver.

This is another good move by the 49ers’ new front office. Torrey Smith was a speed receiver who slowed down after the 49ers signed him to a $40-million contract in 2015. Funny how that often happens to receivers who get paid big bucks.
Smith’s release indicates the 49ers most likely will draft a wide receiver during the first-three rounds of the upcoming draft. Which receiver do you think the Niners will draft?
