NFL Films producer Greg Cosell was a guest on CSN Bay Area reporter Matt Maiocco’s podcast and had a lot to interesting points about the current state of the 49ers. They discussed a broad range of topics, hitting on several things everyone is discussing. They talked about the draft, Colin Kaepernick returning to the team, quarterback prospects, and plenty more.
