Do you think we need any Oline help? How about CBs and LBs?
CB is definitevily a need given that Wright, Cox and Brown will be FAs. Given that Cully could be back at the level of 2012, we need at least one CB to groom behind these two and throw him in as nickel CB. The 4th CB could come from FA. Furthermore, I would try to get Colvin in the 6th round and redshirt him.
Contrary to some other people on this board, I do not see any need at our LB-corps at all. For NOW, we got Brooks, Aldon, Skuta, Lemonier and perhaps Fleming at OLB. At ILB we have got Willis, Wilhoite, Moody and perhaps Bowman. The only reason I would see the Niners go after an ILB early is to get rid of one of our stellar ILBs in the near future.
I would not see the Front Office trying to get rid of one but to get one to be a backup, a quality backup, at a low price. They have an awful lot of money tied up in Willis and Bowman. If Bowman comes back healthy and at the same speed we are tight, if not then we need quality backup. So if they can get a draft pick to keep the quality high then we are covered and one of our other backups will be released. But whether they do it or not remains to be seen for they might think they already have enough backups already. I just believe that this will be one of the picks and I put one in the draft. Whether it is the right one remains to be seen. Thanks for the feedback.
