Good morning! We still have no resolution on the Stevie Johnson situation. That @Flight1300 Instagram account has actually replied to a couple people indicating that the two sides are attempting to work something out. We still don't know for certain what his status is with the team. If this is his Instagram account, he would seem to be negotiating a pay cut. If it is not his account, who knows what is up. For now, he remains a 49er until we hear otherwise. Ideally he can get something worked out, as he was incredibly efficient in his brief time in the lineup.
Down below, you'll see a link to Grant Cohn's mock draft. He has the San Francisco 49ers drafting LSU guard La'el Collins in the first round. I have seen that pick show up in other places. At this point, a guard or defensive line really would not shock me. On the offensive line, Mike Iupati could be departing in free agency, and Alex Boone only has one year left on his deal. On the defensive line, Justin Smith could retire, or could return for one more year. Either way, in both cases, the 49ers need to figure things out long term. If Brandon Thomas is not 100 percent right now, it would make some sense to bring in another guard, whether it be via the draft or free agency.
On to the links (all two of them)
