Draft mocks are such a waste before we find out if players re sign in FA
Dawson- if he does not re sign, one needs to draft a kicker
Goodwin- if he is gone, Center is a priority
Boldin- If he re signs to a 2 year deal then WR drops
Crabtree- if he signs for 5 years, then WR drops
Eric Wright/Parrish Cox- if they both sign as CB's, need for CB drops
RB- the team has Lattimore/Gore/Hunter/LMJ and you have them drafting a RB?? Jewel Hampton is still on PS
Dawson-Most kickers are taken late in the draft anyways, see no reason why he wouldn't be back though.
Even if Boldin re-signs, WR is still a priority, Boldin is 33, not 23, its not like he's a long term solution. Right now the 49ers wr's are Boldin, Crabtree and Patton, even if Boldin re-signs you need to add at least two WR's.
The Wright/Cox thing is pretty laughable, Cox was unemployed a few weeks ago. Wright has looked decent, but not a guy I'd feel comfortable counting on, they need to bring in someone to replace Brown who has played well for the most part, and develop them into a long term starter.
As far as the RB scenario, there's also room for a guy like Houston, Jewel Hampton hasn't proven much at all and Houston is a much more physical runner, bigger in build, similar to Dixon who will possibly be leaving in free agency. Even with the current RB's, it doesn't hurt to keep adding depth, look at what Seattle has been doing in regards to their RB situation.
Basically, no matter what happens, it clear that needs at CB and WR are there. Additional needs for OL depth, QB depth and more are also present.
