what makes you think that it's aligning to be a DL and CB draft? How about OLB or WR?
WR will be the focus of next years draft due to the loss of Boldin and potentially Crabs for 2014. This year we have our 2 aforementioned starters with 2 guys coming off injury and our to date disappointing 1st rounder form last year. At the least we get by and look to stronger talent next year.
Right now our need is DL to replace Sopoaga and RJF as well as to develop Justin Smith's eventual replacement and provide depth. CB was a GLARING weakness. Both Rodgers and Namdi get a chance to prove they should be on the roster post 2013 but if not a younger, faster and cheaper version will be added this year.
I agree with LieutKaffe we go DL/CB/S with first 3 picks, followed by best TE available and then look to BPA or positioning for 2014 draft. At MOST we keep 6 or 7 draftees this year so it's package to move up or trade future picks in higher rounds. If Baalke plays things right we should be able to draft to fill our holes then set ourselves up with 3 or 4 extra picks in higher rounds for next year and soften the blow of the FA needs in 2014.
