So the way I see it we were 1 fumble away from the SuperBowl. We have a fantastic defense, great special teams and outstanding coaching. But, that doesn't hide the fact that we were horrible on 3rd downs and redzone % all season long and this must be addressed. I cant see us being a player in free agency and our main goal should be to re-sign our own and build through the draft.

OG- Chilo Rachal
FS- Madieu Williams
(1) 30- Dwight Jones, WR- UNC 6'4, 225
Jones would battle with Morgan to start opposite Crabtree. This guy has #1 skills. Big, physical and catches everything in sight. He could be a steal at the end of round 1.
(2) 37 f/m Cleveland- Coby Fleener, TE- Stanford 6'6, 244
*Trade our 2nd (#63), 3rd (#93) and 6th (#188) and WR- Kyle Williams to Cleveland for #37
Trade value chart:
Total- 411 + Kyle Williams
For all the hype about Delanie Walker, he is not a dependable receiver. He never has been. He does some nice things as a HB type player but if we have a chance to move up and get an impact player who can play right away, we need to do it. Dwight Jones, Michael Crabtree and Josh Morgan on the outside. Vernon Davis and Coby Fleener up the middle. Gore and Hunter softening up the defense. Who do you cover? Harbaugh's system revolves around the TE's and we run a two TE set 3/4 of the time. A duo of Davis/Fleener could be deadly and very similar to what NE throws out with Gronk and Hernandez. We need to improve our red-zone efficiency and 3rd down % Adding Dwight Jones and Coby Fleener is just the remedy.
3- f/m Philly- Jarius Wright, WR- Arkansas 5-10. 180
Flat out burner. We are lacking speed from our receivers and Wright and his 4.33- 40 could open things up running down the field. He averaged 17.5 yards per catch during his college career. Ginn is a great returner and should be brought back but I never want to see him as our #2 or #3 WR again. We need to build up depth at our WR position so the likes of Brett Swain and Kyle Williams are not #2 and #3 WR's in the NFC Championship game ever again either.
Michael Crabtree- Jarius Wright
Josh Morgan- Ted Ginn
Dwight Jones- Thomas Mayo
4- Bobby Wagner, ILB- Utah State 6'1, 232
Tackling machine who could take over for Larry Grant as our primary backup.
5- Terrance Gannaway, RB- Baylor 6'0, 240
Takes over from Dixon as our 3rd/Short yardage RB. He is very similar to the Chargers Mike Tolbert.
7- Thomas Mayo, WR- Cal U (PA) 6'2, 200
I remember Baalke saying one of the best measuring tools when evaluating small school players is to see if they dominated the competition.
2009: 72 catches, 1,368 yards, 19.0 Avg, 11 TD's
2010: 74 catches, 1,315 yards, 17.8 Avg, 14 TD's
2011: 79 catches, 1,359 yards, 17.2 Avg, 16 TD's
I would say he dominated.
