OL and WR solutions from my point of view :

- insert Alex Boone at RT... he won't disappoint
- draft an OT in the first 4 rounds for swing-duty
- focus Kilgore at C to push Goodwin
I really like this! Makes good use of the players the 9ers already have and doesn't rush anything (or screw up any continuity they have already built). Only question would be can Kilgore play center next year if Goodwin goes down? Keeping Snyder might be good insurance. He and Person would be backups at OT. Bye bye Rachal?
Meachem seems to be third receiver in NO? Are the two other guys that good? Or has he lost something?
Kilgore and Chase Beeler can get long looks to see where they are in their development. Either should be able to push for a real shot at C, if not 2012, then 2013. Just depend on what they have been showing... which we as fans, really haven't a clue.
I also like keeping Snyder as a versatile OL. I'd pay him roughly 2 mil per year to hang on to that quality depth. Rachal, I would kick in the arse on the way out the door... just terrible player and a waste.
The Saints spread the ball around so much, and people underestimate just how excellent Colston and Lance Moore are. Between those two and Graham / Sproles getting so many passes their way? Meachem is being horribly underutilized. He's the exact type of WR we need. Awesome character...talent to be a #1, but no so obvious that this #1 status would take away from Crabtree also being a #1. So we would in essence have two #1s yet neither being elite... yet.... if that makes sense.
