Geek's Mock Plan V2.0
Alex Smith - QB
Josh Morgan - WR (1 year "prove it" deal since he's recovering from injury)
Ted Ginn Jr - WR/ST
Adam Snyder - OG
Carlos Rogers - CB
Dashon Goldson - FS (Franchise)
Ahmad Brooks - DE/OLB
Larry Grant - ILB (RFA Tender)
Release/Do Not Resign -
Shawntae Spencer - CB (CUT; 3M in savings)
Moran Norris - FB
Chilo Rachal - OG
Madeau Williams - S
Reggie Smith - S
Free Agency -
Brandon Carr - CB - Chiefs
*One big free agency splash for the 49ers is used to beef up the secondary, the weakest area of the D. The combination of Rogers, Carr, and Brown rounds out this unit. Culliver is shifted as the new Reggie Smith - Dime back and immediate backup to Dashon Goldson.
Jonathan Fanene - DT/DE - Bengals
*With McDonald's injury concerns and Smith's age, adding a vet backup to rotate is vital to protect the strength of this team's D. A great regular season, and a solid showing in the post season, he should be a reasonably priced addition to the team.
Roy Williams - WR - Bears
*A big bodied receiver to add size to our WR corps. With the changes in Chicago, he may not be resigned. He shouldn't command a large contract, so why not?
NFL Draft -
Trade: 49ers trade 1st and 3rd round picks for Bengals 1st round pick - Value is even. The Bengals have Oakland's 1st round pick, so trading back to acquire additional picks with their lower pick isn't far fetched. And the 49ers have used the Bengals as trading partners in previous transactions and drafts.
R1: Kendell Wright - WR - Baylor
*A beast at Baylor, Wright fills a big void in our offense of a dynamic and play making receiver to complement Crabtree's possession style skills.
R2: Ben Jones - OG/C - Georgia
*A very impressive interior lineman, Jones starts instantly at the RG position, and eventually transitions at center.
R4: Jamell Fleming - CB - Oklahoma
*A good mid-round prospect that is a physical corner and active in run support.
R5: Jacquies Smith - DE/LB - Missouri
*Another Smith to the 49ers...sounds fitting. Eventual replacement for Haralson.
R6: Greg Childs - WR - Arkansas
*Another big bodied receiver that provides added competition to the WR pool.
R7: Delano Howell - SS - Stanford
*Challenges Spillman and Jones for the backup SS positions and ST spots.
