If both RJF and Soap are gone in free agency, then I don't think the Niners will stand pat on the d line. They could sign guys like Sammie Hill, Desmond Bryant or Terence Knighton to low end deals prior to the draft. At that point, three picks would be plenty. Justin Smith has at least 1 good year left in him and the Niners don't have to restock the entire d line in one offseason.
I like the idea of getting Cribbs, too if the price isn't too steep.
I like Sammie Hill. He can start for most teams, even ours. But I doubt he'd be cheap. I think he's gonna want more than what we paid Ice Sop. At the right price he'd be perfect. I'm not all interested in Bryant. And I like Knighton even less
, as he struggles in run support, which was why he was benched in Jacksonville. In fact, I can't believe that you seriously posed him as a serious option. In any event, we can get a guy within the first 3 rounds of the draft that would be a better option than Hill, Bryant, and definitely Knighton.
