“The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to bring in a new general manager to replace Kevin Colbert, who is stepping down after the 2022 NFL Draft. San Francisco 49ers director of player personnel Ran Carthon is among the candidates for the job, per Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.”
“Many of the decisions coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John Lynch and their staffs make this offseason will be geared toward helping Lance in 2022 when, presumably, he takes over as the long-term starter.
With that in mind, here’s a look at what the Niners must do to again be a Super Bowl contender.”
“Even with Sherman’s words, I still find it difficult to believe Gilmore will sign with the 49ers.”
“While teams like San Francisco wouldn’t net A-list talent if it plucked a USFL standout for the upcoming 2022 regular-season campaign, there are nevertheless some potential fits the 49ers may be interested in who found themselves recently drafted.”
“They may need to find a starting left guard depending on what happens with Laken Tomlinson in free agency, but they shouldn’t reach just for the sake of position. Hayes is a good player who started 24 consecutive games for Oklahoma at left guard. If he can slide in and start, great. If he’s just a reserve, that’s not so bad for a late third-round pick.”
