I think we'd have to move up quite a bit to get a real impact player at DLfor the future. However, I think the Niners have some long range problems at CB and OL (center/right guard) and the team could be a beneficiary of a huge run on DL in the first round.
I know it sounds silly with such a talented team, but we are going to need to reload at starting positions across the board over the next few years (DL, OL, CB, WR, S, RB) not to mention adding reserve/depth at RB, TE, ILB, and OLB.
Edited note: One very intriguing player not mentioned by me, that will probably be there late in the first round is Clemson jumbo-sized DE Malliciah Goodman. At a listed 6'4", 280 pounds, he has a long frame and long arms. I tend to be skeptical about players stacking on 15 pounds to shift positions, but this guy may be an exception. I like his upside a lot, either as a big 43 DE or as a quick, penetrating 34 DE. Really good bend, ability to drive through the point of impact, good short area quickness.
