  1. Mock Offseason 1.0

    I thought about this, but I rationalized it by creating this mock draft: 1. Cardinals: Nick Bosa 2. Giants (through Niners): Dwayne Haskins 3. Jets: Jonah Williams 4. Raiders: Quinnin Williams 5. Bucs: Greedy Williams 6. 49ers (through Giants): Josh Allen
  2. Mock Offseason 1.0

    This is my first shot at a mock offseason. This will most likely change quite a bit once the offseason rolls on. Also, I took a shot at contextualizing my contracts by providing details, don't get hung up on the numbers, I'm just taking my best guess to make this a little more detailed. Pick away! Resign Robbie Gould K - 2 years 6 million (3 mil AAV) Mike Person OG - 2 years 4 million (2 mil AAV) Mark Nzeocha OLB - 2 years 2 million (1 mil AAV) Raheem Mostert RB - 3 years 3 million (1 mil AAV) Bradley Pinion P - 3 years 3 million (1 mil AAV) Greg Mabin 1 year ERFA tender Elijah Lee ILB - 1 year ERFA tender Extensions Arik Armstead DE - 3 years 15 million (5 mil AAV) I'm sure this is a little unpopular, but he's a very valuable run-stopping DE. I don't think anyone is looking at Armstead as the former first-round pass rusher, he's now firmly a run stopping DE with a little pass rushing ability. He's due 9 million this year on his fifth year. By extending and giving him 5 million a year on average, we save at least 4 million in 2019. Release: 21.4 million in savings, including Armstead’s extension Pierre Garcon WR - 1 million in savings Garry Gilliam OT - 5 million in savings Malcolm Smith OLB - 1 million in savings Earl Mitchell DT - 3 million in savings Cassius Marsh DE - 4 million in savings Dekota Watson DE - 1.5 million in savings Erik Magnuson OG/C - 600k in savings Brock Coyle ILB - 1.4 million in savings Free Agent Signings Anthony Barr OLB - 4 years 32 million (8 million AAV) - I gave a sizable contract to Barr because of his versatility and ability to be a 3-down LB. I see Barr and Warner in coverage in both base and nickel with Barr having the ability to blitz when needed. Jason McCourty CB - 3 years 18 million (6 million AAV) - Despite his age (32), he's still one of the top cover corners available. We don't need to draft another corner, we need someone who is a reliable starting corner who can help lock down one side of the field. Earl Thomas FS - 4 years 40 million (10 million AAV) - Thomas fits a dire need of ours. the Niners' pass coverage, more specifically, the secondary was the absolute worst last season. I still like Colbert, but he's shown that he's not ready to be a full-time starter, Tartt can't stay healthy, and Harris is a late round draft pick coming off of a serious injury. A top-notch starting safety is sorely needed. Ray-Ray Armstrong OLB - 2 years 3 million (1.5 million AAV) - I'm bringing Ray-Ray back to serve as a back-up LB and special teams contributor. I like his coverage ability and with signing Barr, drafting a rookie to a contract as long as his just doesn't make sense. Sam Young OT - 2 years 3 million (1.5 AAV) - Young over Gilliam is not only an upgrade in performance but also costs less. He's unspectacular, but he serves as a back-up at both tackle positions. Draft *Traded #2 pick to Giants for 1st, 2nd, 5th, 2020 1st, and 2020 4th **Traded 2nd round pick to Browns for 2nd and 2020 2nd First Round, Pick 6: Josh Allen EDGE Kentucky* - Allen fills an obvious need. He's a dynamic pass rusher with multiple moves to get to the QB. Niners' pass defense was horrible and Allen will help give corners some help by reducing the QB's decision time in the pocket. Second Round, Pick 37: Kelvin Harmon WR N.C. State* - There are other, more dynamic and athletic WRs available, but Harmon is a very polished WR with excellent size (6'3 210) and great hands. He fits more of the possession WR role, but with Goodwin and Pettis stretching the field, the Niners need someone who can make tough catches and work the middle of the field. Second Round, Pick 49: Oshane Ximines EDGE Old Dominion** - While the Niners' pass rush improved modestly, it still needs speed rushers on the outside to clean up the interior penetration. With the depth of pass rushers in this draft and the huge need for talent, doubling up makes a lot of sense. Third Round, Pick 67: Michael Jordan OG/C Ohio State - I love Jordan's versatility and athletism. He's started at guard and center during his career and has the body type to play tackle (6'6 310). He's essentially Alex Boone but more athletic and not as strong. He has the skill set and body of work to take over a starting guard spot by his second year. Fourth Round, Pick 98: Josh Oliver TE San Jose State - This might seem like a stretch, but Oliver's pass-catching ability would pair nicely with Kittle for the next few years. Traditionally, the third TE on the roster is more of a blocking TE, but with Oliver's talent, it's too hard to pass up taking him while thinking back to the days of Vernon Davis and Delanie Walker making life hell for defenses. Fifth Round, Pick 132: Joe Giles-Harris ILB Duke* - Harris is a very accomplished and well-rounded LB. He comes in taking Coyle's role (for now), but will challenge Elijah Lee for playing time behind Warner. Harris is great at playing the run and can cover some, too. Sixth Round, Pick 163: Lukas Dennis FS Boston College - While Dennis is not the biggest guy in the world (5'11 195), he's a very skilled and accomplished safety. He was hurt most of 2018 and didn't impress after lighting up college football in 2017. We're buying low on a guy who could be a ball-hawking FS while sitting behind one of the best to play the game in Earl Thomas. Seventh Round, Pick 194: Zach Bailey OG/OT South Carolina - Bailey's versatility is very intriguing. He's not the most skilled blocker, but has been a starter for a few years in the SEC and held his own. He's the kind of late-round flyer to take based on his versatility to play multiple positions.

  3. John232's way too early mock off-season

    Few things in our favor: He gets to join up with Sherman and Goodwin again He gets to give the Seahawks a huge middle finger twice a year for the next couple of years He gets to play the same position in the same defense that he helped make famous He has familiarity with Saleh We have the cap room to give him an attractive contract

    Interesting, so he's like the reverse of Anthony Barr. Barr: Good pass defender that can provide some pass rush Allen: Good pass rusher that can provide some pass defense I love the athleticism and versatility.
  5. Around the NFL II - Even NFLier

    True, his age is a factor in this despite his high-level of play. Anyone thinking Brown will command a 1, plus another high pick or two is not thinking logically. I would offer our 2 this year and 2020 5th for Brown.
  6. Around the NFL II - Even NFLier

    Does anyone think this trade is reminiscent of the T.O. to Baltimore trade that never was? The deal in place was T.O. to the Ravens for a 2nd round pick. I feel like there are some parallels here with Brown: WR at the top of his game, a manageable contract, and mutual interest in departure. Brown for a second and maybe a late-round pick might be enough.
  7. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I think this all hinges on combine interviews. I know if I was a GM that was interested in drafting him, I would be exclusively asking him about that and his commitment. On the flip side of that, if he has a smart agent, his agent would be telling him to put it out there as often and publically as possible that he is committed to football. Because like you said, if there is any hesitancy on his commitment, he instantly becomes a mid-to-late-round draft pick that might end up going back to baseball.
  8. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I can agree with the bolded. But, I also like being strategic about our FA's and not just throwing money at a big name in hopes that he will fit the system. The FO just needs to stop being so impulsive or desperate to get their guy.
  9. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Why? I feel like there are so many guys who were placed in a scheme that doesn't fit them and it severely hurt their career. I would much rather have people who fit the scheme so the offense or defense can work like a well-oiled machine.
  10. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I get that, but you also have to be smart when trading up that high. Haskins is a big risk when comparing him to recent high first round QB's, but if a team falls in love with him enough to trade up that high, then great. Personally, I just don't think it happens.

    I really like Barr for his versatility. I think he is the ideal SAM backer. He can blitz off the edge when needed, contain the run on the edge, and provide pass coverage as well. Warner, to me, feels like a WILL through and through.
  12. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    if I'm going to spend big on a LB in FA, I want him to be on the field for all three downs and not be a liability in coverage. I know Barr fits that description, but I don't know a ton about the other guys.
  13. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Good point on the UDFAs. Great teams are made up with niche, role-player type guys and a few stars at the top. At least, sustainable good teams are. Completely whiffing on Foster really hurts, but I'd say the past two drafts have been our best since 2011.
  14. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    If you had your choice between one of these FA LB's, who would you choose? K.J. Wright Denzel Perryman Jordan Hicks Anthony Barr C.J. Mosely Kwon Alexander My choice: Either K.J. Wright or Anthony Barr. I like that Wright knows the system and is a good, all-around LB. For Barr, I like that he has been pretty productive in pass coverage and he offers a little pass rushing ability as well.
  15. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    All kidding aside, the Niners have been pretty good at finding useful, or at least intriguing guys in the 6th and 7th rounds the last two years. 6th Round D.J. Jones Marcell Harris 7th Round Adrian Colbert Jullian Taylor Richie James I'd say Shanny and Lynch have been pretty good at identifying talent in the later rounds and coaching them up to stick on the 53.
