depending if franklin signs or not (lets say he does) i think we need another pass rusher if brooks doesnt work out we need a better OLB otherwise i think we need to replace ray mac as a 3-4 DE
the thing is, both matt's have speculated that the 49ers may not want to pay Clements what he will be due next year
If he becomes a shut-down type of corner this year, then he will want his pay. If things occur like last year, then we hold the bargaining chip and may want him to take a pay cut to stay on.
Still, I believe we will get a CB in the first two rounds.
I like Powe in the first and Brown in the second. Brown has the best speed it seems of the top CBs and he's going up against some big wigs, too, which may drop him a bit.
If not, Amukamara or Peterson in the first and Ellis, the Hampton Fatty, in the second.
It must be a CB/NT combo for the first two picks. I think our pass rushing LBs will do fine and the need won't be as great.
We shall see...
