Both Levin Black in “How to Upgrade the WR Position Without Antonio Brown” and Matt Maiocco in his “Mailbag” have come up with great ideas for possible free agents. I really like Levin Black’s idea of going after Tyrell Williams in free agency if he is available and I hope Matt Maiocco is right about how hiring defensive line coach Kris Kocurek might increase our chances of luring Ziggy Ansah. I would be very happy if those two were our only big free agent signings. They could both make a major impact on our team with a relatively modest hit to our salary cap.
I would also like to take the time to thank 49ersFanSince1950 for his “Projected 2019 Niners’ Final 53 Roster” article in the fan posts. It was a wonderfully well done article and I would highly recommend those that have not already read it to do so.
Even if you don’t completely agree with 49ersFanSince1950 on every little item, there is such a wealth of information to draw from. For instance, I don’t completely agree that we should sign two fairly high priced edges in free agency and then still use our #2 pick to select another edge. If we took two edges in free agency, I would ideally like to trade down with the Raiders (he also suggests trading down) for their #4 & #24 picks and select Devin White (sorry Greedy Williams fans). Even though we don’t completely agree, the names he came up with in free agency definitely gave me fruit for thought.
One last thought I want to throw out there for conversation. What does everyone think of Nasir Adderley out of Delaware? I have seen him projected anywhere from the middle of the second round to the end of the fifth so I am not sure where he would go in the draft. He is from a small school so who knows how he would work out but he seems like he could be a very good choice for our free safety of the future.
