This is my attempt to respond to the feedback, I got.
Off Season moves
Re-Sign: Dashon Goldson, Ricky Jean-Francois, Delanie Walker, and Larry Grant
Lost Free Agents: Ted Ginn, Leonard Davis, Randy Moss, Brandon Jacobs and Isaac Sopoaga
Cuts: Parys Haralson (2.57 M), David Akers (3 M) Alex Smith—trade (6.5 M)
Trade #1: pre-draft day trade.
SF trades Alex Smith and our fourth round pick to the KC for their 2nd round pick--#34.
KC gets a quarterback and a much needed draft pick.
SF, in essence, exchanges a low fourth round pick for a high second round pick.
Trade our 5th and two 6ths (about 65.8 points) to Chicago for their 4th (about 66 points)
We regain a fourth round pick and end up with five picks in the first 100.
Sign Richard Seymour to a two year, team friendly contract with good incentives.
He provides immediate relief for Justin Smith and Ray McDonald and will be a leader in the locker room.
1st 31 SF Tavon Austin WR West Virginia 5-09 175
Austin is an explosive play maker capable of taking it the house at any time and from anywhere on the field.
He is quick, fast, elusive, and durable. He did not miss a game in his college career.
In 39 games, he had 993 rushing yards, 3,260 receiving yards, 431 punt return yards, and 1,981 kick off return yards.
edit: sorry, I had the numbers jumbled.
2nd 35 KC Brandon Williams DT Missouri Southern St 6-2 340
Williams is strong, relentless, hardworking and capable of collapsing the pocket, disrupting the passer, and getting sacks.
He was D2 defensive player of the ear in 2012.
He had 8.5 sacks, 16.5 tackles for a loss, and 68 tackles. He did well at the Senior Bowl.
2nd 61 SF *Justin Hunter WR Tennessee 6-4 200
Hunter has good size and decent speed, but most importantly he is a clutch receiver.
He led the FBS in "clutch reception percentage" in 2012. 76.7% of his 73 catches going for a first down or touchdown.
3rd 74 CAR Darius Slay CB Mississippi St 6-1 190
Slay, a solid corner with good size and good ball skills, had five picks and 6 passes defended last year.
3rd 93 SF Sylvester Williams DE North Carolina 6-3 312
Williams, a defensive tackle with first round skills drops into the third, because his motor runs on five cylinders. He was not in good shape when he arrived at the Senior Bowl. He is the perfect candidate to serve as an apprentice under Justin Smith and Richard Seymour. Last year, he had 6 sacks and 13.5 tackles for a loss.
4th ?? CHI David Bass OLB Missouri Western 6-3 262
The team desperately needs solid back-ups for Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks. Bass is one. In his four year college career, Bass had 39.5 sacks and 56 tackles for a loss.
5TH ?? IND Dustin Hopkins K Florida St 6-2 190
We need a replacement for Akers, and Hopkins is the best kicker in the draft.
7th ?? CIN Manase Foketi OT West Texas A&M 6-5 320
Foketi is a small school product with starter potential. We need a swing tackle.
7th ?? SF Armonty Bryant OLB East Central U 6-4 250
Bryant will be our second back-up at OLB. In three years, he had 26.5 sacks and 48.5 tackles for a loss.
He has had legal problems, but when I checked it out his felonious distribution charge, I discovered it was for selling $20 worth of pot.
His college coach supported him and welcomed him back to the team.
1. Jared Smith DT New Hampshire 6-3 302
2. Quanterus Smith OLB Western Kentucky 6-5 250
3. Sean Renfree QB Duke 6-4 225
Quanterus Smith is a starting quality player, but he blew out his knee at the end of the year. He will be the combine for interviews and the medical.
