FA: Glenn Dorsey, Nmamdi Asomugha, Phil Dawson, Marlon Moore, Dan Skuta, Craig Dahl
Trade acquisitions: Boldin, McCoy
**Draft trade: 2(34) + 3(93) to Minnesota for 1(25) - Based on current projections, it's hard to see Datone Jones making it past the late 20s.
**Draft trade: 4(128) + 5(157) + 7(237) to Kansas City for 4(99) - Use a couple of our extra picks to get one last pick in the late-3rd (top of 4th) sweet spot.
1(25) - Datone Jones, DE - Tenacious pass-rusher to provide DL depth and gradually fill in for Justin Smith. Our DL needs another blue chipper.
1(31) - John Cyprien, S - Best player available and all-around S prospect, 2013 FS starter and eventual Whitner replacement/upgrade.
2(61) - DJ Hayden, CB - Fast cover corner to add to our stable of talent; question marks surrounding Rogers, Brown, Culliver.
3(74) - David Amerson, CB/FS - A hybrid ball-hawk who could play a single-high zone or drop in and press larger WRs. Groomed as FS.
4(99) - Travis Kelce, TE - We need a second TE and Kelce is a well-rounded prospect with upside that draws Gronk comparisons.
4(131) - Reid Fragel, OT - Former TE like Staley, fills big need as versatile backup OT.
6(173) - Tyrone Goard, WR - A WR with good size and speed who can provide depth and upside.
6(180) - Quanterus Smith, DE/OLB - A late-round natural pass rusher with injury concerns
7(246) - Steve Beauharnais, ILB - Looks like it's time to turn the page on Grant and Gooden and have Skuta and a rookie at backup ILB.
7(252) - Dustin Hopkins, K - Because Dawson is old. Could always wait a year, but it would be nice to have a young K waiting the wings.
