2014 Projected Cap: $127.5M
49ers Projected 2014 Cap Room: $11M
Roster Cuts: $6.5M in savings
- J. Baldwin, WR; C. Rogers, CB
Restructure via Extension: $10M in savings
- R. McDonald, DT/DE; V. Davis, TE; F. Gore, RB; P. Willis, ILB
Resigning: $10.5M in spending
- A. Boldin, WR; E. Wright, CB; P. Dawson, K; M. Wilhoite, ILB
Free Agency: $6M in spending
Corey Graham - CB - Ravens
*He's playing very good football right now with strong performances against the Jets, Steelers, and Vikings. He's a much cheaper option than Rogers and Brown, and would be the perfect #2/#3 flex.
Chad Henne - QB - Jaguars
*He's not a starting QB, but he's got enough talent to be a capable backup. Think Shaun Hill.
Remaining Cap Room: $11M (used for player extensions and rookie draft picks)
Trade: 49ers trade 1st, 2nd, and 2015 1st for Buffalo Bills's 1st round pick.
R1: Sammy Watkins - WR - Clemson (via trade)
*Vertical threat that instantly adds another dimension to our offense. Imagine Crabtree, Boldin, Watkins, and Davis on the field at the same time.
Trade: 49ers trade 2nd (via Chiefs) and 4th round picks for Titans's 2nd round pick. Titans move down a few slots to acquire another draft pick.
R2: Ahmad Dixon - S - Baylor (via trade)
*Emerging safety that's one of the best SS prospects in the draft. Day 1 starter.
R3: Tyler Larsen - C - Utah State (via Titans)
*Instantly competes for the starting center position vs. Kilgore. Skill set is a match for our scheme.
R3: Josh Mauro - DT/DE - Stanford
*Iron sharpens iron. Secures our depth at defensive line.
R3: Aaron Colvin - CB - Oklahoma (comp)
*A nice, strong, physical cornerback to add to the mix. Security blanket for Culliver.
R5: Allen Hurns - WR - Miami
*I had him in my previous mock. 6-2 and very athletic. Might not get much playing time in his first year, but he learns the ropes behind Crabs and Boldin.
R6: Spencer Long - OG - Nebraska
*Get better long, because you'll compete for a starting job for us in 2015.
R7: D.J. Coles - TE/WR - Virginia (Panthers)
*Not the fastest guy out there, but an upgrade to Celek.
R7: Connor Shaw - QB - South Carolina
*Scappy quarterback that minimizes his mistakes and extends plays. For a #3, that's all you ask for.
R7: Shamar Stephen - DT/DE - Connecticut (via Colts)
*Similar mold to Quinton Dial, Stephen will most likely be a PS player.
R7: Travis Carrie - CB/S - Ohio (via Saints)
*With the loss of Michael Thomas, Carrie steps in as a PS depth player.
