WR (just because Morgan is out... need a better 3/4)
CB (need Brock to replace Brown... need Spencer back)....
FS/SS (just in coverage at times),
OL (doing much better, still giving up sacks though)
Really, there is no glaring weak spot like in years past. We need to get better in certain spots but no spot on this team that is bringing us down. Will be fun to upgrade this offseason and can't wait to see who we all re-sign but we are winning with who we have.
Agree with most of these but think we definately need upgrades (playmakers) at WR and DB. Edwards, Crabtree and Morgan would be OK next year but they could really use a super fast guy...they have size and pretty good hands already.
Would not be surprised if Harbaugh went after a TE. VD and Walker are very talented but neither one is without flaws, nor is either the sure handed outlet that a QB needs at that position in the WCO.
Love to see a shut down CB, my first choice next draft, to go with Rogers. Spencer and Culliver are good but Rogers is a FA next year and this team needs to start stocking talent. Surprised at how deep they seem to be but we've seen the impact of losing a WR and DB on depth...but still winning? How awesome is that?
Edit: The OLine is jelling and I really don't see a huge need here. With Chilo, Boone, and Kilgore on the bench this is a young, good group getting better!
*A go to guy like Steve Smith would be nice to find!
