Niners 2021 Draft Need

I don't believe in prioritizing both the secondary and the pass rush. Usually one goes in hand with the other. Our defensive line is alarmingly slow without Bosa... that scares me, especially in a division with quarterbacks like Wilson and Murray.

If we focus on pass rush, generally, your secondary will improve. Lowkey, if our guys stay healthy... and that's a big IF.. I like the depth we have at corner.

1. Quarterback
2. Pass rush specialist
3. Offensive line
4. Safety
5. Corner

I do think our corners can be improved, but I dont think they're as bad as they're made out to be.

OL-Looking pretty sad. Need help!
DL Pass Rush-We need to put pressure on QB for this defense to work.
Safety- This week shows the need and with Ward playing terrible we need an upgrade
CB- I just hope we stay healthy, but I think Sherman and Witherspoon are done.
LB-Greenlaw should start and find us another gem like we did with him.
QB-I think they address it through Free Agency/Trade to get our #2 QB that can possibly beat JG out. If not this moves to #1 for me.

I like our corners a lot too, but aren't all free agents? Also, the price tag Sherman and Verrett will carry . I doubt very much we can upgrade at QB. Unless we make a massive trade up, which we shouldn't do. I'd say we'd be better off trying to improve our pass protection. I love Bosa, but we need Dee Ford speed to deal with Murray (see the first Arizona game). Bosa/rookie edge rusher/Jordan Willis/Dee Ford (maybe)/Ronald Blair should be a sound enough pass rushing group.
In the secondary under contract are Ward, Moseley and Moore. I don't think they resign Witherspoon or Dontae Johnson. Tim Harris and Marcell Harris probably come back on one-year deals. KWilliams, Tartt. Sherman, Verrett - can you afford more than one of the four free agents? I think they will need to draft CB early for someone who can play sooner than later and maybe they resign both KWilliams and Tartt.

I agree with the argument that we need to look at QB early. Need an heir apparent and both backups are free agents.

Center is the other position that they need to nail down. If they get someone stronger in there I think the unit will be fine.

This is a one of the better years if you need a QB. We'll see about that later on this season.

But O-line should be number one priority for us.
If drafting today...

1 -DE or OLB Pass rusher
2- CB....shermans done
3- WR...Ayuk and samuel look good,,,,need 3rd receiver
4- OL....depth
5- DT.....depth

CB - one boundary and one slot
SS - may need a new SS after next offseason
OL - Interior offensive linemen that will allow Brunskill to move to his natural position of OT
DE/EDGE - need more speed opposite Bosa to replace Dee Ford
OLB - someone to replace Kwon who will be a cap casualty
WR - can never have too many WR's
QB - a more mobile QB who can also throw

I think that covers it.

Still believe in our quarterback, huh? [Or there won't be a great option where they'll be picking]
