Trent Baalke - 6 seasons with 49ers as personnel point-man, director of college scouting... Personally, I keep him on board as a personnel/scout type and hire an experienced GM. He isn't a free agency type guy to me.
Paraag Marathe - More of a contract negotiations guy, limited football personnel knowledge
Outside the Organization:
Some of these guys have GM jobs or have retired so they might not be an option but could possibly be persuaded to come here.
