We will, Feliciano

Or do you expect some pro bowl guard that will cost 15+ mil a year? If you so you better pray very hard that NFL forgets that they have something called a salary cap. FYI, we are sitting at around 1 mil in free cap space. Extending BA will free up some cap space, but we still have a roster to fill out. We don't have 53 returning players.

I don't expect it. I made that comment b/c guys are mentioning all these free agent guards that won't be cheap. And this regime won't spend money on a guard. They will draft a guy and bring back Feliciano on the cheap.

Overpaying for Gs is not a winning formula. Unless you have a top 3-5 NFL type of G, you can find/develop/scheme a good enough G for cheap. We made Tomlinson look good, Banks has been fine as well. Burford seems capable, just needs to finally to put it all together, he's not Kwame Harris out there...

Feliciano would be more than fine as well. 4-5 mil a year for him would make sense and he showed last year he's a good enough starter.

If there was a OL this FA to make a move for, it would be Tyron Smith (Cowboys expected to not resign him). That would be an impact OL worth the money. Hunt is a good G, but he's not worth that 12+ mil (at least) that he will command. Would love to see Tyron Smith / TW on this team for the next two years.

I'm personally happy with our safety situation, but would any of these guys make sense or be an upgrade?

I agree to a certain extent but we've been trying that formula for a few years. What happens? Every year the fans complain that the front office ignores the O line. I've always felt that too much attention is paid to the tackles and not enough to the interior line. I look at the line as a singular unit. Any weak link is an issue because defenses will exploit it.

Simmons of course would be an upgrade but would cost a lot. CGJ would be an upgrade but so much drama and would get knocked the f**k out on site. Jackson, Chinn and McKinney would be intriguing at the right price. But it's safety and their impact on games is minimal if they aren't named Kyle Hamilton.

There was an article in the Athletic today where the league had cleared significant amount of $$ in money to safeties. They just are not worth much in today's nfl for some reason. The $$ goes into the DEs first, Corners next. Maybe the lighter and faster LBs are reducing some of their need.

Just hypothesizing, but I think safeties are viewed as a lesser commodity because of how many defenses are now putting a lid on top of explosive passing attacks by keeping two safeties back. This discourages offenses from attacking deep often and opting for a more ball control passing game, which puts the LBs in focus, and safeties out of focus.
I don't totally buy this because many of the coverages nowadays have safeties picking up a WR in man coverage. Naturally, there's a pecking order as to which positions get the most money and which get the least, and it just so happens safeties have become a position where "solid" is good enough, and cap resources are better spent elsewhere, whether on offense or defense.

Blackmon would be a good fit and good value.

I like Xavier McKinney. But I think the 49ers just might roll with Brown and Hufanga as the starters.
