I think the areas they could use some depth are at guard/center, safety, and rb. Goldson is on a one year contract, I think and not sure who his back up is. So, I could see us taking a CB or safety, maybe with an eye toward flipping him into a safety. Rb wouldn't surprise me since there always seems value in the 2nd/3rd rounds. The heir apparent to Gore isn't set. A guard or center would surprise me a bit more...just cuz I'm not sure they know whats' going on with the line now that Snyders gone.

and my toes. Seriously though, after a goods night sleep and some time to look over my draft lists Jenkins make more sense. The only guys I thought we would take were Kendall Reyes or David Wilson. All the next 30+ I think were toss-ups. Basically all second round grades but with question marks. Good football players but completely up to how each individual team decides what they and only they are looking for. That's what makes this so much fun. We all think we have a good idea and may wind up being as right or wrong as the experts. There are generally only about 20 first round graded players every year so after 20 is when it's the best fun.
When you look at our starters and the guys behind them, I'm looking at someone that can be our center for the longterm, a safety behind Goldson, OLB, and another TE. However if the value is at another position, then by all means, we should go in that direction. I'd actually be surprised if they go with a guard with the 2nd. It's going to be an interesting two days and one that I think will leave the 49ers in the position of being the best talented team in the NFL based on pass production (2011 season) and on paper as well. By the end of the draft, we will have more talent than we've had since our last great run in the late 90s.
