49ers free agency/NFL Draft Q&A

You’ve got questions, I’ve got answers. Probably. I’m new here, obviously. So I have yet to do a Q&A with you guys. Just to make this more regular, and to not always seem like I’m “talking at you”, we should do this more often. That way you can kind of get an idea of where my opinions come from. Drop your questions in the comments below and I’ll do my best to respond to them. I’ll be answering questions immediately for 45 minutes to an hour. There’s plenty of news to talk about regarding the San Francisco 49ers. Whether it’s the moves the team has made in free agency, or...

49ers get Nick Bosa + Ole Miss wide receiver in CBS Sports mock draft

49ers get Nick Bosa + Ole Miss wide receiver in CBS Sports mock draft

It’s just not the wide receiver from Ole Miss you’re thinking of. I think I said it last week that unless something drastic happens, we may want to start looking at the San Francisco 49ers’ second round pick of the 2019 NFL draft. Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa is all but a lock unless the Arizona Cardinals take him first or the 49ers decide to go elsewhere (both possible). Today’s mock draft from CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson follows that narrative. It’s what you expect to start: Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray goes first to the Cardinals, Nick Bosa second, but this mock...

Nick Bosa meeting with 49ers tonight

What do you think Bosa orders to eat? Ohio State’s pro day is today. Like at Alabama, the Buckeyes are full of prospects. Nick Bosa is the obvious fit at number two. But the team could be interested in one of their receivers later on in the draft, or a lesser known player. Somebody always seems to emerge from these big schools in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers contingent, including GM John Lynch and VP of player personnel Adam Peters, are at Ohio State’s pro day. They are planning to meet up with Nick Bosa for a late lunch. It doesn’t end there, though. According to Albert Breer of...

Mel Kiper moves his grade of the 49ers 2018 draft up a (very small) notch

Mel Kiper moves his grade of the 49ers 2018 draft up a (very small) notch

The 2018 draft was already decent, but he gave it a bit of a bump. We’re only one year removed from the 2018 NFL draft, and yet there’s so many positives found in that one year. The typical amount of time to judge if a draft was a success is in the ballpark of three-five years, but in one year the 49ers have had several starters emerge and play at a high level. ESPN’s Mel Kiper took a look at every NFL team’s draft from 2018 and re-graded them where appropriate. He gave the 49ers a B- in 2018 and bumped his grade up to a B. So...progress? Post-draft grade: B- GM John Lynch...

Who should the 49ers target in the second week of free agency?

Who should the 49ers target in the second week of free agency?

The bargain bin. Everyone’s favorite aisle. Taking a look at 2 players the team should sign and two players they should stay away from. I’ve seen some 49er fans that are upset with the haul that the team has gotten so far in free agency. If I told you before free agency started you would still have all your draft picks this year, and end up with a pass rusher coming off of a historical season in regards to getting after the quarterback. Add a speedy linebacker that creates chaos. Create competition at running back, wide receiver, and defensive back, all while having still having over...

One player on each side of the ball the 49ers should trade for

One player on each side of the ball the 49ers should trade for

The 49ers have cap space and capital. Should they be aggressive before the draft? We know that the San Francisco 49ers were interested in trading for Odell Beckham Jr. last week. We also heard rumors about the team dealing with the Philadelphia Eagles in a supposed trade. There’s smoke coming out of every window in the 49ers building. Knowing that the team is actively shopping, I was thinking who the two best case scenario trades on both sides of the ball that would impact the 49ers immediately and in the future. I’m not advocating for these deals to happen. It’s not a must. By no...

Golden Nuggets: 49ers attend Alabama’s pro day

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet NFL free agency’s 1st week was a whirlwind of moves for the 49ers. They were able to bring in help at some of their top needs with contracts that they can get out of quickly if the players do not work out. Dee Ford is an immediate impact player that they brought on to help in the pass rush, which was the biggest need. He had an outstanding season with the Chiefs last season and the 49ers will hope he continues that trend. LB Kwon Alexander and CB Jason Verrett are...

49ers address the punter position

Relax 49ers fans, they have found a punter 49ers fans can breathe a sigh of relief, they now have a punter on the roster. The 49ers have announced they have signed punter Justin Vogel to a one-year deal Tuesday afternoon. The 49ers had holes on their roster through free agency, but the one position they had nothing for was punter. Bradley Pinion signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shortly after free agency began and the 49ers needed to find a new leg to go into it.
