Get rid of Alex Smith and have a nice day.
This would pretty ideal and relatively feasible.
Yeah throw our big money at Nnamdi. I'm sure he would highly consider the 49ers since he's already living in the Bay Area. We would not need to spend our first rounder on a CB.
Carson Palmer would be a good QB to have while we groom a rookie. He's got the experience, a decent supporting cast and most importantly a QB friendly coach. And it only helps that he wants out of Cinci. He is a huge upgrade over Alex Smith, then again anyone would be.
Von Miller would be the prototypical rush OLB that we've been lacking to put some real pressure on opposing QBs. He's got freakish athletic ability and pure speed coming around the edge. Instant starter.
Lastly we have Locker. Definitely a risk anytime you draft a QB in the first round. He has all the physical tools and intangibles. Sure he needs to work on his accuracy, but I'm sure Harbaugh would do wonders with him. Give him a year or two to learn the offense and he'll be good to go.
