During a radio interview with KNBR, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh praised veteran wide receiver Randy Moss’ speed and production on the field during their team practices.  He was also very encouraged by Moss’ intelligence.

“In the classroom, he sits in the front row, he soaks up the knowledge and also gives the feedback, too,” Harbaugh said. “He’s a coach. He’s like a coach. You know, like the way Alex Smith is now becoming. I mean Alex knows as much as anybody, as much as any of our offensive coaches do at this point. And Randy has picked it up so fast because he’s seen so much football.”

The 49ers could certainly use Moss to help coach up rookie A.J. Jenkins, as well as veterans Mario Manningham and Michael Crabtree who both have room for improvement in their game.

Moss could be big boost to Crabtree's career

Randy Moss drew a lot of attention in his debut with the 49ers last week, and Michael Crabtree certainly is one of the many observers who is watching the five-time All-Pro wide receiver closely.
