Alex Smith to KC Chiefs for 2014 2nd round draft pick.
David Akers - K
Garrett Celek - TE
Restructure/Extend - (Salary Cap Relief for 2013)
Jonathan Goodwin - C
Parys Haralson - DE/OLB
Justin Smith - DT/DE
Dashon Goldson - FS
Ricky Jean-Francois - NT/DE
Tarvares Gooden - ILB
Free Agency -
Dwayne Bowe - Chiefs - WR
*Yes, I know what you are all going to say. "We got Crabs and Mario...we don't need no stinkin Bowe" But Bowe embodies everything we are looking for in a WR - strong route runner, good hands, willing to help out in the run. Manningham is a great #3, and a good #2. But the reality is this: Mario has 1 year left, Crabs has 2 years, KW is injury prone, and AJ is unproven. Look at the Falcons or Giants...Bowe would be a great fit!
Desmond Bryant - DT/DE - Raiders
*I still think Bryant is a great fit for our team. Sound pass rusher, getting stronger as a run defender.
Matt Moore - QB - Dolphins
*Competes with Kaepernick for the starting gig.
NFL Draft -
Trade: 49ers 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (via Panthers) for Chargers 1st round pick
R1: Johnathan Hankins - NT/DE - Ohio State (via Chargers)
*Huge frame with potential to DOMINATE in the pros. Showed a lot of amazing skills this past season.
R3: Dustin Harris - CB/PR - Texas A&M
*Electrifying punt returner and emerging pass defender, Harris beefs up our potential in the secondary.
R3: Ryan Otten - TE - San Jose State (comp)
*With a strong senior bowl, you can bet Otten's value is going to jump. Otten has great size and speed at the TE position. Knows how to run routes effectively and get open on the field. Very high YPC average.
R4: D.J. Swearinger - FS - South Carolina
*49ers salivate over Swearinger's potential in the pros. Strong special teams player right off the bat.
R5: Dustin Hopkins - K - Florida (via Colts)
*The best kicker in the draft.
Trade: 5th and 6th round picks for 2014 4th round pick.
R6: John Wetzel - OT - Boston College (via Dolphins)
*Replaces Leonard Davis on the roster.
R7: Jordan Rodgers - QB - Vanderbilt(via Bengals)
*Competes with Tolzien for the #3 gig.
R7: Michael Mauti - LB - Penn State
*If healthy, Mauti would be a 2nd round pick. But with multiple ACL injuries, teams will not want to take an earlier pick on him. As a #4 ILB/ST player, the 49ers have little risk in this pick. And with strong conditioning, maybe Mauti can lower the chances of injuries.
R7: Kenbrell Thompkins - WR - Cincinnati(comp)
*Slot WR to add depth to Kyle Williams
R7: Montel Harris - RB - Temple(comp)
*Training camp fodder.
