Not a bad tweak. NT is arguably a bigger need than CB. This looks like a pretty strong class for CB in that round 2-3 area, though, and Nmamdi, Rogers, and Brown all could be moving on in the next 1-2 years. Or as the old adage goes, you can never have too many talented corners. That's why I have us targeting one early and think we'll go that route.
Barrows said Harbaugh was pretty up front telling him that they see Dorsey as the starting NT. When we first made the Dorsey signing, I personally just saw him as a low-cost, high-upside FA that could back up both the NT and DE positions. But I think signs are pointing more toward the 49ers using Dorsey there with Williams as the backup. We shall see. I could absolutely get excited with the prospect of Jesse Williams, Brandon Williams, or John Jenkins being selected at #61.
