Alex Smith for Chiefs 3rd round pick and conditional 2014 draft pick
Free Agency - $6M in salaries
Sammie Lee Hill - NT/DE - Lions (4 year, $11M)
*6-4, 320 lb, Hill has a great year for the Lions off the bench. 17 QB hurries, 3 PDs and 15 tackles, Hill does a nice job with double teams and getting pressure on the QB.
Domenik Hixon - WR/PR - Giants (2 year, $3M)
*Stepped in nicely for the Giants when injuries occurred in their WR corps. Nice #3 veteran receiver with punt return experience. At 6-2, he's got good height as well.
Josh Johnson - QB - Browns (1 year, $650K)
*Competes with Tolzien for the backup gig.
Brandon Siler - ILB - Chiefs (3 year, $2.75M)
*Strong special teams player and experience at ILB in the 3-4 D. Replaces Larry Grant.
NFL Draft -
R1: Alex Okafor - DE/OLB - Texas
*We need a three-pronged approach for our OLB pass rush - due to fatigue and injuries. Ravens were successful when Suggs was injured with Courtney Upshaw.
R2: Logan Ryan - CB - Rutgers
*Very physical defensive back that will provide competition and improvement in the secondary.
R3: Travis Frederick - C/OG - Wisconsin (via Chiefs)
*With a high cap figure, Goodwin will most likely be cut. I'm not sold on Kilgore, and I don't think the 49ers are either. Frederick has ability to be a solid starting center in this league.
R3: D.J. Swearinger - S - South Carolina (via Panthers)
*Eventual replacement for Whitner, Swearinger is a solid tackler but has great cover ability.
R3: Devin Taylor - DE - South Carolina
*6-7 DE with the frame to eventually fill out as a 3-4 DE. He'll be a limited rotational player in his first year, but contribute on special teams.
*Trade 4th, 5th, and 6th round picks for Jets 4th round draft pick*
R4: Ace Sanders - WR/PR - South Carolina (via Jets)
*Speedy WR that adds an explosive element to our offense.
R4: Kwame Geathers - DT/NT - Georgia (comp)
*Developmental nose guard that adds a HUGE plugger in our defense.
R5: Michael Williams - TE - Alabama (via Colts)
*Nate Byham type pick here - strong blocker with capable hands. Possession TE.
*Trade 6th and 7th round picks for Saints 6th round pick
R6: Caleb Sturgis - K - Florida (via Saints)
*Replacement for David Akers.
R7: Latavius Murray - RB - UCF (via Bengals)
*Replaces Brandon Jacobs on the roster.
R7: Offensive Line (comp)
R7: Wide Receiver (comp)
