Coach Jim Harbaugh didn't express confidence in Quinton Patton as his No. 3 receiver Wednesday.
The 49ers' actions during free agency should be a wake-up call for Patton. Despite having Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, they've reportedly been after just about every wideout available including Hakeem Nicks, Julian Edelman and DeSean Jackson. According to Harbs, the Niners need "a third guy who can get open and make plays. ... A playmaker. That’s what we're looking for." Mar 26 - 10:58 AM

The 49ers' organization reportedly views 2013 fourth-round pick Quinton Patton as a future starter at wide receiver.

Patton is unlikely to get that opportunity in 2014, but it could certainly happen in a season or two. Patton finished his rookie year with just three catches for 34 yards in six appearances. He has forward-thinking WR5 value in Dynasty leagues.

Quinton Patton caught one pass for two yards in San Francisco's NFC Championship Game loss to the Seahawks.

Combining the regular and postseason, Patton finishes his rookie year with all of five catches on seven targets. A darling of the pre-draft process, Patton's season was derailed by a broken foot that cost him the better part of three months. Patton made noise in the preseason, catching six passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Capable of playing both the slot and perimeter, Patton is a hold in Dynasty leagues. He'll get every opportunity to prove himself for the receiver-needy 49ers in 2014.

49ers WR Quinton Patton is inactive for Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Patton wasn't on the Week 14 injury report, so he's a healthy scratch. Patton should see the field again before the 2013-14 season is through, but he's well off the re-draft radar.

Patton figures to be San Francisco's No. 4 receiver Sunday, behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, and situational deep threat Mario Manningham.

Beat writer Matt Barrows guesses it "might be one more week" before Patton plays in a game. He's recovering from a broken foot suffered all the way back in Week 4. Patton's impending return is a reminder that San Francisco's pass-catching corps is finally loading up. Michael Crabtree will debut on Sunday, and Mario Manningham just now getting his legs underneath him.

Quinton Patton (foot) practiced for the first time since Week 4 on Wednesday.

49ers rookie WR Quinton Patton (broken foot) is out of his walking boot.

Coach Jim Harbaugh said Patton will not go on injured reserve, though he seems to still be a couple weeks away. Patton broke his foot in Week 4.

Wed, Nov 6, 2013 03:18:00 PM

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh revealed Friday rookie WR Quinton Patton fractured his foot in Thursday night's Week 4 win over St. Louis.

Injured reserve is not being discussed yet, but is a definite possibility in time depending on his recovery. Patton, a fourth-round pick out of Louisiana Tech, had worked his way up the depth chart to the point the 49ers wanted him to be a starter opposite Anquan Boldin. Patton's injury could expedite Jon Baldwin's playing time, and perhaps get GM Trent Baalke on the phone with Browns GM Mike Lombardi regarding Josh Gordon's availability. The Niners have ten days between games. So they have an open time period to get aggressive.
