49ers let Whitner go in the FA and must use a day 2 pick on a safety to fill out that position. Eric Reid was great last season and one of the things I love about him is - he can play either safety. 49ers look for another safety who can cover and can hit and are delighted to find this guy still available in mid-2nd round. They have a late 1st - early 2nd round grade on him and move up a few picks to make sure they land their guy.
