CB - examples: Kirkpatrick, his size would be one hell of a bonus for us against bodies like Brandon Marshall or Sidney Rice
S - Goldson only resigned for 1 year and he does have a monster year he could leave, luckily for us their is some decent depth at safety in this draft pool with Mark Barron and Ray Ray Armstrong
WR - I think this is contract year for Morgan if not mistaken(Someone please correct me because I can't find his contract numbers anywhere), if edwards doesn't pan out or reneges on his word and bails after having a monster year we could end up being 2 WR's down.....
Alshon Jeffery, Jeff Fueller an Justin Blackmon are all big bodied guys even if Blackmon is a bit shorter he his just as physically imposing.
DE/DT - Justin Smith is getting old and even if Dobbs comes through as his heir apparent we will need to bulk up on talented big men to fully transition to a 4-3/3-4 hybrid.
Quinton Coples is billed as a 4-3 guy but he could end up being a great addition to a hybrid like fangios
DT Brandon Thompson or Marcus Fortson seem like good DT/NT fits
OLB - I like the Tavares Gooden signing(sounds like we'll be switching him to OLB) but should he get hurt again the 9ers will end that experiment quickly.
I couldn't be happier with an Ahmad Brooks / Aldon Smith combo but imagine if we had Courtney Upshaw opposite of Smith?? That would be the scariest OLB tandem in the NFC
QB - You better believe it if we can get Luck we'll take him. Besides that I've always said that we took a QB this year to give Harbaugh something to do and to appease the fans. I know Harbaugh spent the entire 4 month span between his hire and the draft watching game film on QBs but he will probably have a scout team devoted solely to QBs this year and if we get the perfect storm of bad qb play from alex and lack of development from Kaepernick and Tolzien it'll be a given that the 9ers take a QB at somepoint. I'm really intrigued at the idea of seeing Harbaugh getting another Josh Johnson sized QB in Darren Thomas or Robert Griffin and developing him. Realistically unless we can get Luck it'll be another developmental QB and we will either sign another veteran or let Tolzien run the show for a year if Alex bombs it this season.
