3. Kevin Zeitler-OG-Wisconsin
4. Antonio Allen-S-South Carolina
5. Jamell Fleming-CB-Oklahoma
6. Joe Adams-WR-Alabama
7. Philip Blake-C-Baylor
Obviously some of these guys are likely to rise. Usually the ones I see as my favorites at this time of year tend to skyrocket up a couple of rounds at least, so those Rounds 4-6 players might be 3-4th round guys in April, but right now, I like that as a list of potential new 49ers.
I would love that kid! He's a beast.
This is going to be a very interesting off season with all the FA on our team including Rogers and Edwards. Even with Rogers and Culliver, I think they need a better option than Brown. This draft doesn't seem to have a true 1st rd FS. I still think we need a true NT fatty for some depth, but RJF seems to be doing well as the back up. I love the fatty from Washington though and looks like he will be available in the mid to late twenties.
Right now, I am looking at FS, WR, NT, CB, OLB and C.
BPA now more than ever next year. We need another rook who can come in and be an upgrade to a position of need. There will be some interesting FAs so anything is possible.
I have to say that I am very surprised at how quickly Culliver is coming on. I don't think anyone saw this coming. He really looked good at times against Megatron, boy's got some huevos for sure. I like his attitude as well.
Championship teams are always adding playmakers on defense and quality along the OL. This is what we need to do to establish annual dominance. I think we did a good job of drafting development which will turn into good depth while our next set of developmental players come.
I fully expect Chilo to be gone. Person and Kilgore both looked even better than expected in this past pre-season, and they should be even better next year. They supposedly want Kilgore to be the C of the future. Person can play all positions on the line basically, but he was strong at both LT and RG.
Our OL depth next year could look something like:
OT: Staley, Davis, Boone, Person
OG: Iupati, Snyder, Kilgore (G/C), *Rookie*
C: Goodwin, Kilgore
This gives us 9 OL, which most teams carry, with of course Snyder, Kilgore, and Person being swing players.
