and sign Otagwe in free agency. The only thing I didnt incorporate here is the backup RB everyone wants. Maybe Coffee will improve, or maybe we can get one in free agency
You are way off base about Atogwe. Here is a quote from Maiocco about his situation:
Rams FS O.J. Atogwe will reach unrestricted free agency on June 1 if the team does not sign him to a long-term deal, guarantee a 2010 contract of $7 million, or trade his rights.
The predicament has to do with Atogwe's right of first refusal tender. Currently a restricted free agent, Atogwe can be signed to an offer sheet until April 15. If he fails to draw an offer, Atogwe can force the Rams' hand on the $7 million guaranteed, knowing that the team will lose his rights by June.
After June 1st, Atogwe will be free to go anywhere without compensation to the Rams. All the Niners have to do is wait till then and then they can pick him up.
Like the overall mock with the exception of Rolle. If the Niner have Atogwe on their radar, then I would take the best available CB at the #4 spot.
