Resign: Kassim Osgood WR - Was a ST stud.

Trade: LaMichael James RB for conditional Draft Pick in 2015. If he does not want to be here, cut him loose.
(NO PREDICTED TRADES IN DRAFT)
1st) Allen Robinson WR Penn ST. - Even though in this scenario we did resign Boldin, drafting a stud WR will be important with Crabs big deal looming. Not to mention Boldin's age. Robinson is big, fast, long arms, catches the ball well. Can make something out of nothing after the catch. Runs good routes.
2nd) Deone Bucannon SS Wash St. - Big Safety that might take a year to fine tune his game. Is not as 'NFL Ready' as Reid was last year, in my personal opinion. He is rangy and has much better ball skills than Whitner.
2nd) Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska - Big physical CB who is rising up draft boards fast. Had a great senior bowl and could benefit from a year behind T-Brock, Cully and T. Brown.
3rd) Weston Richburg C Colorado St. - Might be wishful thinking, but I think that this is a possibility that he falls to us here. Will compete with Kilgore for playing time right away.
3rd) Dri Archer RB/RS Kent St. - I think after the combine Archer will find himself going in the 2nd to 3rd round. He is crazy fast and can fill the hole left by LMJ, and I think he is an upgrade over LMJ anyway. Could even develop to a slot WR. But in the mean time he will be a crazy good return man.
4th) David Fales QB San Jose St. - Could be a good back up QB and maybe develop into a possible trade bait down the road. Does not have the strongest arm or the best size. But has intangibles that make him a competitor.
5th) Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma - Torn ACL at the senior bowl. He can be a redshirt player for us this year. Could of been a 2nd to 3rd round pick before the injury.
6th) Colt Lyerla TE Oregon - Athletic freak who has off the field concerns. Has top TE potential. Could push the backup TE's we have now for receiving opportunities.
7th) Cody Hoffman WR BYU - Big receiver who was the leading WR in BYU history in all statistical categories. Would of been a 1st-2nd round pick last year if he would of entered the draft. Had a mediocre Sr campaign at best.
7th) Ben Gardner DE Stanford -Provides DL depth. Possible Practice sqd candidate.
7th) Nick Williams SS Georgia -Off the filed issues. Big Safety could develop with time.
