Trade Deadline & Free Agency & Draft


Hey Niners Nation,
Just like the rest of you, I have been wasting my hours arguing over an NFL daft that is a year away, scrounging for any new 49ers development, and hoping to forget our humiliating loss to the Falcons last week.  This bye week has been possibly the most boring week of my life.  When Americans are bored, what do we do? We blog!  So I'd like to embrace the American in me, and write my first FanPost about the options at the trade deadline and free agency for our San Francisco 49ers.

First, let's take a look at our needs. We need:
Starting Right Tackle
Franchise Quarterback
Stout Ted Linebacker (to Replace Takeo Spikes at end of season)
Ancoring Nose Tackle
Ball-Hawk Free Safety
Pass Rushing Defensive End
Gamechanging Kick Retuner
& Maybe even an upgrade at Cornerback

Now let's take a look at who is available on the trading block:
QB Brodie Croyle (KC)
LB Derrick Johnson (KC)
WR Dwayne Bowe (KC)
QB Brady Quinn (CLE)
WR Josh Cribbs (CLE)
DE Julius Peppers (CAR)
CB Nnamdi Asumogha (OAK)
RB Darren McFadden (OAK)
RB Steven Jackson (STL)
QB Josh Johnson (TB)
RB Lendale White (TEN)
DE Jevon Kearse (TEN)
If there is Anymore you know of, feel free to add on to the list.

I am very intrigued to see Nnamdi on the block.  I would give up our 1st and replace Bly with him, but other than that or the possibility of Cribbs, I would not make any deadline deals.

Now let's take a look at the 2010 Free Agent class:
QB Jason Campbell
QB Kyle Orton
QB Chad Pennington
RB Ronnie Bown
RB Lendale White
RB Jerrious Norwood
RB Peirre Thomas
RB Darren Sproles
RB Willie Parker
RB Cadillaac Williams
WR Vincent Jackson
WR Brandon Marshall (if he's not resigned)
WR Braylon Edwards
WR Steve Breaston
WR Kevin Walter
WR Miles Austin
WR Muhsin Muhammad
Jahri Evans
LT Marcus McNeil
LG&LT Daryn Colledge
LT Jaed Gaither
LT Chad Clifton
T Mike Gandy
DE Julius Peppers
DE Aaron Kampman
DELB Kyle Vanden Bosch
DE Elvis Dummervil
DE Derrick Burgess
DE Jevon Kearse
DE Leonard Little
DT Vince Wilfork
DT Richard Seymour
DT Casey Hampton
DT Ryan Pickett
LB Demarcus Ware
LB Shawne Merriman
LB Karlos Dansby
LB Kirk Morrison
LB Thomas Howard
LB Demecco Ryans
S OJ Atogwe
S Antoine Bethea
S Nick Collins
S Will Allen

Now we look at who will be leaving the team after this year:


Signed through 2009

G David Baas

CB Dre' Bly

WR Isaac Bruce

WR Arnaz Battle

LB Jeff Ulbrich

LB Ahmad Brooks

NT Aubrayo Franklin

S Mark Roman

T Barry Sims

DB Marcus Hudson

LB Marques Harris

Let Baas, Bly, Battle, Bruce, Roman, Sims, Hudson, and Harris walk!

Now that we know our options, lets take a look at our checklist of needs again:
Starting Right Tackle- Free agent Signing of McNeil or Clifton
Franchise Quarterback- Carolina's 1st Pick(Sam Bradford)
Stout Ted Linebacker (to Replace Takeo Spikes at end of season)- Sign Kirk Morrison
Anchoring Nose Tackle- 2nd Round Pick?
Ball-Hawk Free Safety- Sign OJ Atogwe(as said numerous times on NN, he is dating Singeltary's Daughter)
Pass Rushing Defensive End- Kampman could be nice FA pickup
Gamechanging Kick Returner- Josh Cribs for 3rd Rounder
& Maybe even an upgrade at Cornerback- Nnamdi Asumogha

What do you think of your new 49ers?  This is my first post.  Sorry if it is sloppy, suggestions are welcome.
