The San Francisco 49ers ended their season at 10-7 after losing to the LA Rams in the NFC championship game. Our flaws were obvious throughout the season. We lost our #1 CB Jason Verrett in the second game of the season and K'Waun Williams was injured in many weeks. That forced the 49ers to sign CB Josh Norman who lead the league in FF, but it also forced them to start rookies like Ambry Thomas and practice squad players like Dontae Johnson. They were getting destroyed all year. Both getting jumped over and letting up big plays. The 49ers had solid Linebackers despite Dre Greenlaw being hurt week 1 and had an amazing D-Line.the offense was great with Deebo Samuel and Elijah Mitchell leading us to those 10 wins. Deebo should be a main target in FA and we should also go for Laken Tomlinson. Jason Verrett we should let walk.
Heading into the off-season the main concern needs to be CB. Many corners are going into FA that the 49ers could target such as Stephon Gilmore and Darius Williams. Our best fit is the best available. We will find this out in FA week one but i would love to get Darius Williams. Safety is also going to be important because our DBs are getting older. Any average safety would work. We can save our money on offense and just focus on re-signing.
I dont know much about college football but i do know we are trading Jimmy G. I think we can atleast get a 2-3 round pick for him. Building up around a 1st year starter like Lance is very important. In the second round (pick 61) The 49ers should select WR Cristian Watson. Trey Lance had problems with throwing the ball to hard to his targets, so bringing in a WR used to that could help and its a former teammate that can help Trey through his first season as a starter. For our next pick, wherever it will be, We should pick CB Derion Kendricks. Kendricks could fill that whole at CB for us. He is a lot like K'Waun Williams woth average coverage but great tackling. After the draft we must rely on the preseason to see if we drafted any gems with all of our other picks.
