2020 Team Needs/Top Targets: (Draft & Free Agency)
Team Needs: LEO (Speed), IOL (C & RG), XWR (Speed), RCB, FS, LT (Future), TE2, SWR, ST (Returner)
LEO - With Dee Ford only playing 232 snaps of the 1,000 (Fred Warner), this team badly needs another speed rusher. We have plenty of tweener W9 ends with potentially bringing Arik Armstead back, Damontre Moore and Ronald Blair. But 'speed' is the key, which means the ER will most likely being between 250-260 pounds.
IOL - Once again, Weston Richburg goes down with a major injury and this time, it might cost him some season. IOL pass protection remains a major issue with Laken Tomlinson, Weston Richburg out and an older Mike Person. Kyle seems to be taking notice after the Superbowl loss where once again, one dominant IDL in Chris Jones, wrecked our chance of a Superbowl win.
XWR - This is another deep draft. Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin fell flat on their faces but Kyle did hit a homerun on Deebo Samuel at the Z. Kendrick Bourne had a very solid year and ran most of his routes from the slot. Trent Taylor and Jalen Hurd are serious chronic injury concerns and neither should be counted on. Emmanuel Sanders showed instantly what a professional XWR could do in Kyle offense. But he's 32 and an UFA. This player also needs to have some electric top end speed to help open everything else underneath but also excellent route running ability and dynamic hands as he's going to be featured at the X.
RCB - Nobody tests Sherman because why should they when they can target Witherspoon? Emmanuel Moseley has the right mindset and had a very good year but does the team envision him as their future? And Sherman is certainly slowing down.
FS - Jimmie Ward made it through a full season (barely). And he had a very nice year but given the amount of C3 this defense still plays, it badly needs a play maker and unfortunately, Jimmie Ward doesn't have a play making bone in his body; and if so, it's probably broken.
LT - Kyle wants top end, first round draft picks at his two T spots and C. And for good reason. Are players like Justin Skule and Daniel Brunksill really seen as long-term replacements? If there's one thing we've learned about Kyle offensive system, is that it flies through OL. We used 7 of the 8 last year alone and this is a unit constantly getting dinged up which makes sense, given all that is placed at their feet.
TE2 - Imagine what Kyle could do for Jimmy with a TE2 like the Patriots had with Gronk/Hernandez. I believe Jalen Hurd was going to be our Hernandez but with a busted back and chronic injury concerns, ShanaLynch might need to go another direction.
SWR - Jimmy badly missed his security blanket SWR this year. Kittle is terrific but Jimmy also had a special connection with Trent Taylor. This was an underrated loss this year and it meant Jimmy had to rely on the intermediate passing game more than he'd like and coupled with the loss of a reliable pass catching RB in Jerick McKinnon, it only magnified the issue.

NFL Draft:
Team Needs: LEO (Speed), IOL (C & RG), XWR (Speed), RCB, FS, LT (Future), TE2, SWR/ST (Returner)
How a scout ranked the relative strength of each position group in the 2020 draft class: WR, OT, CB, DT, QB, RB, IOL, LB, ER, S, TE.

At #31 or with a trade-back (45+):

High Value = Top 2-5 player at that position because of where your pick is at and when that position group starts to run traditionally

---this section needs updating after 3 off seasons---

2016 Shanahan Draft Tendencies per The Athletic / WZ Member Synopsis:
Trend #1: He rarely drafts Offensive players in RD 1
- Over 10 seasons Shanny's teams have drafted 4 offensive players in the first round and only at 2 different positions (OT: Brown and Williams) and QB (RGIII and Manziel)
- We are set at both of those positions with the acquisition of RT Mike McGlinchey, Joe Staley and Jimmy Garoppolo
Trend #2: He NEVER drafted RB or TE before RD 3
- Only one offensive player ever picked in RD 2 (i.e. Dante Pettis)
- Joel Bitonio in 2014 (Browns) is the only time he's selected an O player in the 2nd round
- Generally finds his offensive talent later in the draft (i.e. George Kittle)
Trend #3: He does draft Offense in RD 3:
- Nine (9) offensive players taken in this round over the last ten (10) drafts
- Finds undervalued players here, it is his sweet spot (notable names: Slaton, Reed, West, Coleman, Hooper)
- Looks for players who are better on tape than their combine measurables
- Very good hit rate here
Tight Ends: The last three TEs drafted by Shanny (Reed, Hooper and Kittle) have all run 40's faster than 4.75 (combine average for TEs), he values athleticism (pSPARQ), route running and catching over pass blocking
Wide Receivers: Shanny has lacked recent success here as most of his best WRs were already drafted (Julio) or through FA (Garcon). Dante Pettis looks like he can be solid at least

Pre/Post-June 1st Information:
Pre-June 1 Cut - Basically means the team takes on the remainder of any prorated money (signing bonus, option bonus, base salary), and is counted as dead money in 1 year. Player becomes a Free Agent right away; example being Richard Sherman last offseason.

Post-June 1 Cut - Basically means you spread the dead money over 2 seasons, so say the player has $6M in bonus prorations left, and has 3 years left, the dead money wouldn't be even, it would be $2M year 1, and $4M year 2, player also becomes a free agent right away.

Options - Like with Pierre Garcon, and Earl Mitchell have to be picked up or declined before the beginning of the new league year. If declined, it's treated as a Pre-June 1 cut for dead money, hence the $7.2M dead money for Garcon, the player becomes a free agent right away after the option is officially declined.

Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag - The team that uses this has the right of first refusal, and, if they choose not to match the offer sheet, they receive two first-round draft picks.

Post-June 1 Potential Cuts: --- Courtesy of AB81Rules
X

53 Man Roster Projection Rules: --- Courtesy of AB81Rules
--- Injured reserve players must first make the initial 53 to be placed on I.R. to be eligible to return after week 8
--- Only 2 players can be placed with the "designated to return" label per year
--- Players who never came off the PUP list through TC (W.Richburg, G.Celek) will not count against your 53
--- Vested veterans (S.Coleman, J.McKinnon, T.Taylor) must be cut at the 53, clear waivers, and then they can be resigned the next day

Practice Squad Eligibility Definition: --- Courtesy of AB81Rules
The standard eligibility for a player to be added to the practice squad is he is a free agent and has not accrued two years of NFL service. A player can only be on a practice squad for three seasons total in his career (six weeks on a practice squad in a season counts as a season for these purposes).

The league does allow for exceptions to the less than two-year rule, which was expanded with the 10-player rule. Teams may keep up to four players on their practice squad who have accrued two seasons of NFL experience, which allows a fringe player the chance to stay with the team, even if he already has been in the league, while also allowing the teams to keep more veteran players.

Accrued seasons are earned by being on the active (53-man) roster for a team for six games in a single regular season.

NFL Salary Cap Increase by Year:
2014: $133M

Practice Squad Clarity: --- Per AB
For 2020 you can have a 16 man practice squad, each week by Tuesday 4PM EST you have to designate 4 players as untouchable, when the next Monday comes they become free to sign elsewhere, then the next day you protect whoever 4 players you want too. As for the 2 each week being elevated to the main roster, they go back to the practice squad without going through waivers. For the initial wave of PS players, all players cut must go through waivers to get to the initial PS, except vested veterans like Dontae Johnson, if they choose to sign to the PS. Players with 2 or less accrued years get $142,400 for the season, players with 3 or more accrued years get $204K a year. Players with less than 4yrs accrued have to go through waivers when they get cut at the final cut down which is in 13 days I believe.

2 players elevated each week can't come up more than 2 times in 1 season. If they want them up for a 3rd time, they have to sign a regular contract with the team, like under the previous CBA, kinda sucks, means someone like Tavon likely wouldn't take a PS role.

Thanks for the time you put into this!

Top needs: IOL, Edge, S, WR (Speed over Size)
In my opinion the IOL needs to get upgraded, got absolutely destroyed in the SB. A quick Edge rusher to fill in for Ford cause he will be limited or hurt throughout the year. Safety because I feel Ward is gonna look to get paid and but we dont trust him to stay healthy enough on a longterm deal and we end up not giving him what he likes and give us a speedy Wr that can run more than 2 routes. I understand people are saying corner but its not one our biggest needs to use a top pick or high priced FA for.

GREAT work NC! Gonna take me some time to digest it all.

I agree the needs per DJamhour's post, but I emphasise safety less. If we can find, either through FA or the draft, another Edge and a fast receiver we can use those later picks to bulk up the O line. And that would do me nicely.
Agreed! Great work buddy.
My pleasure guys. Information center for a lot of the questions we have annually...links. Happy to maintain.
Trade our 1st for a 2nd and 3rd....let ward walk. I dont trust he can be healthy for another full year. We can draft a FS and a CB. With the other picks we can look at debth at C/G on the OL. Let Pettis, Goodwin walk and re-sign Sanders. Re-structure Jimmy's contract so we 'might' be able to resign Arik. I am hoping for Hurd to be able to be healthy once again. IF SO, based on what we have seen, he along with Sanders and Deebo and Kittle can be dangerous. i would love to draft a WR, but we just dont have a lot of draft capitol this year.
The usual idea is the draft won't give you starters in their rookie year especially on a SB caliber roster.

Unless, they drafted a few guys like Greenlaw And at the skill position like Deebo.

Solid point, but I'm not so sure because IMHO we have dept issues and as last year taught us, today's drafted rookies are this current season's star player that saves our collective asses !
This is the year of the upgrades.

We need a better player than a sometimes healthy Richburg, Person and even Tomlinson. Same with Sanders. Maybe for an unhealthy Ford, Ward, Moseley, Taylor and Hurd.

We don't need depth or even challengers anymore. Depth already got us through this year. Now we need 3 or 4 certain upgrades at starter positions.

We need to sign a few of our own and improve the front line talent.

No one's getting near my Ford or Sanders. They're keepers. Upgrades? They were two of our elite players last year.

I agree. It's all gonna depend on the draft board. If the draft is as deep as I'm beginning to think... we can still trade down and upgrade at multiple positions.

I don't agree with one thing you said... Tomlinson had an amazing year IMO. I also think Brunskill could be a gem at guard if he puts on more weight.

I'm willing to let some other go to upgrade in other spots. For example, I'm only willing to part with Sanders IFF we upgrade IOL and find a good starting center. I'm ready to let Ward walk IFF we get someone durable and who can play decent at safety. I don't believe we have the draft capital or FA space to upgrade Ford, rather I'd like to see a restructure based on 2019 play and Kourcerk develops the pass-rush talent we have on bench to accompany Bosa. Clearly we need a back-up to DJ Jones - it certainly isn't Sheldon Day or Thomas. We can find a WR who's fast but may not have great measurables available late or in FA for cheap - and even as a decoy with enough time and protection Jimmy and the passing game becomes as considerable as the running game. The day we don't absolutely need PA for our passing game to work, we're unbelievably dangerous.

I'm starting to like the trade back solution myself. Bellicheat's been doing that for ages now.

Tomlinson ranks near the bottom of the league for pass protection. That's our biggest weakness by far but you can't upgrade everything so C and RG would most likely be the true targets.

I hear that. I really love what Sanders brought to the team. But I'm looking for the next Deebo at the XWR...guy who can grow into a legit star for the next 5 years.

Ford, he's a special talent. I don't know how you'd upgrade over him but you also, better not count on him either. Bring a one dimensional speed rusher for the W9 in and have Ford & Bosa help mold and develop him as much as possible. That's a win-win.

imo
Defensive needs:
1. CB - I think the next step for this defense is getting CBs that can man cover to add that element to the coverage. It takes an entire secondary to play man so let's start acquiring them.
2. Edge depth - If the team wants RBlair back (UFA) it should be easy. I doubt another team pays him anything substantial since he'll be rehabbing half of 2020. Need some young blood here to hopefully grow into the 3rd DE role.
3. Nose Tackle depth - SDay is a UFA but isn't really a run stopper. DJJones can't finish a season. Need a backup stout run defender if KStreet isn't that guy.

Offensive needs:
1. Speed at WR - have to get defenses to back up a bit from crowding the middle of the field
2. upgrade Right Guard - Person's pass blocking leaves a lot to be desired. If Brunskill is that guy, then go for OT depth.
3. OTackle depth - Skule is okay, but needs to get better. Some vet depth to push him will be good in case Skule takes awhile to develop.
