Free agency does not start until March 9th, but the 49ers have been active in recruiting players to Levi’s Stadium. They added DT Earl Mitchell and CB K’Waun Williams over the weekend and they offered one year deals to NT Mike Purcell and LB Carl Bradford on Monday. New general manager John Lynch has already spent more this offseason than Trent Baalke spent last season.

A few potential free agent targets have already been taken off the market. Cardinals Chandler Jones, Panthers Kawann Short, and Chargers Melvin Ingram were all franchised tagged. One player who will not be franchise tagged is WR Alshon Jeffrey. The 49ers have the cap space for him, but will they want to pay a player top WR money who has injury issues? Kyle Shanahan and Lynch need a #1 WR, but they could look in the draft to fill that need. The QB situation will need to be fixed to take advantage of any receiver they draft or sign.

The 49ers decision makers head to Indianapolis this week for the NFL combine. The 49ers roster is in need of talent in all positions and the 49ers will be looking for a player to use their #2 pick on this draft. The team needs a QB so they will look at the combine to find a one that could be worthy of a #2 pick because none of the QBs have separated himself according to most experts. The 49ers would also be willing to trade down in the draft if they can get more value.
