I'd say, DE, Center and CB.

Maybe they can get some cap room and sign Corey Linsley or Joe Thuney.

An athletic edge, someone with outstanding explosiveness that can get after the more mobile passers that are out there.
Edge first round
Center second
CB third/fourth(I don't think we have 3rd rounder this year for Trent Williams, correct me if wrong).
QB fourth round/fifth
Guard fifth

This. I'm looking for a Dee Ford clone. Dee Ford brings a different element than Nick Bosa and the combination together along with what we had in AA and Buck was unbeatable. I don't expect a rookie/Kinlaw/AA/Bosa to match the 2019 line, but it can be damn close.

As for general 2021 needs, my top priorities are CB, DE, and OL. I am undecided on QB. TE is a possibility. I'd also like to bring in a receiver/speed guy that can return and push James and Pettis if he makes it to 2021.

Unusual amount of injuries, even compared to the norm, are derailing this season. We get those guys back and dump some dead weight and we will be rolling again.

QB / Edge
If we find a way to bring back both Verrett and Sherm let's go all in on Edge Rusher and make interceptions rain.
I'd be ok with Hyder on passing downs as long as Bosa is on the other side. At least as a short term solution. We need to go IOL then CB then BPA
BPA

You're correct. No 3rd.
I'm tired of neglecting the secondary because of players flashing. Definitely need a CB early cause spoon sucks, Sherm is aging, and Varrett has injury concerns. If Jimmy is the guy, definitely need to sure up the O-line early too. With all DLs on the roster, if we just need someone as a pass rusher, I'd rather grab that guy with the 4th.

Agreed. Edge, o-line, CB. Can never have enough pass rushers.
Need a real Edge opposite Bosa, and a Center to take control of the interior. You can get by at CB with E-Man and Verrett, maybe bring in a FA CB.

You never want to "get by" at CB, and certainly not with a walking injury waiting to happen and nothing behind him. I hope like heck Verrett can stay healthy because he is a hell of player, but we NEED more talent at the position.
BPA edge or corner or safety
The interesting thing is I like our corners, but I see major problems looming.

1. All are free agents.
2. Richard Sherman's age. While I don't doubt his ability to play at a top level, I am not expect top-5 corner play whenever he comes back. I'm not sold on which way to go with this one.
3. Jason Verrett's injury history. I just can't trust the guy. He's looked great, but I can't trust him/

If we could upgrade at safety, I'd be more comfortable just rolling with these guys and a rookie. They should've let Jimmie Ward walk. Now they need to let both Jimmie Ward and Tartt go.

With that said, with a relatively healthy team, I see us making another run in 2021, but we are going to need to have some immediate contributors in the draft.

Weston Richburg is gonna be back at some point, but he's another injury prone guy. Hoping we draft a center as well as a guard. I like Brunskill at tackle better and it favor him to be our swing tackle over any of the other tackles on the roster.

Of course we need edge help being down our top 3 guys, with one of those guys not likely to be here going forward (Dee Ford).
