49ers brass clearly stated they want to have multiple guys being able to return kicks/punts and I'm afraid this draft doesn't meet that criteria. Can't see them waiting until their 3rd rounder to get someone when this draft is clearly stacked in the first two rounds. Don't expect 49ers to even consider Sproles if this mock had an UFA attached to it...next mock please :)
You don't draft kick returners in first couple rounds, unless you have someone of Hester's capability and team has very few needs. We don't have the luxury to draft multiple guys who can return punts. I understand the coaching staff will want that, but they can't have everything they want. We need pass-rush, we need OL help, we need a safety.
With no salary cap, and most of the good players being restricted FAs, I doubt we will be active in FA .
Saying you want multiple guys who can return kicks/punts is pretty much the same thing as saying you want multiple guys who can pass rush.
There really is nothing to read into either statements, neither of them are news in the NFL.
