How would you rank the 49ers draft needs in 2016?

We're two weeks and three days away from the start of the 2016 NFL Draft. Free agency was rather quiet for the San Francisco 49ers, with Zane Beadles and Thad Lewis highlighting this year's new veterans. The team may or may not still be talking to the Denver Broncos about trading Colin Kaepernick. That's been about it thus far.

What we do know is that the team will be investing heavily in the 2016 NFL Draft. With that in mind, I figured it is time to see what people think about the 49ers draft needs later this month. I've put together a ranked-choice ballot, so you can vote on your top five needs. The options look a little weird, but that's just due to the format that has to be used. It should be fairly easy to figure out. Your No. 1 choice gets 5 points, No. 2 choice gets four points, No. 3 choice gets three points, and so on.

For this vote, let's look at things without actually considering the draft board. If you think a position is the biggest need but do not like this year's class for that position, please still rank it No. 1. The idea is to figure out the positions of need, and then go from there.

Head in and vote, and in a couple days I'll share the results, along with a look at the top candidates at each of those positions.
