There's just no way 14 rookies are making the roster. I think it is inevitable that picks get grouped together to either move up in this year's draft or next year's.

I don't think Goodwin's been bad, and Kilgore has been considered a very strong apprentice, so I don't think C is as big a need at this juncture.

Smith and the 49er D wo/J. Smith. Need to finssomeone to follow J. Smith, no one will replace that guy.

(for example, trading a 3rd for someone's 2nd rounder next year.i'm thrilled to see how baalke's uses these picks. we have some definite needs to acquire depth along the DL, S, OL, and perhaps WR positions. not to mention that we have to continue to do really well in the draft in order to fill the gaps that will be left by any FAs who we lose in years to come.

Lacy, Gillislee, or Ball could fill that role. DL, that was evident by how much the defense regressed without J. Smith. S, I hope they resign Goldson, CB, Rogers is not getting any younger. Just some ideas.

Just some ideas.I don't know that they will spend another high draft pick on a RB. Jury's still out on how high Lacy will go. His early grades had him as a 3rd rounder, and he's not a Sr., so he won't get to build his stock at the Sr. Bowl. Last night was his last showcase before the combine. If he can last until the 3rd, then he could have a shot at being a 49er. Gillslee's not all that big (5'11, 200). Bigger than James and Hunter, but not appreciably so. If they want a bigger back, LeVeon Bell is about as big as they get (6'2, 242). His stock is somewhere in that 2nd-3rd round range, now, although it could climb. Stepfan Taylor has good bulk (5'11, 215), and is in that 2nd-3rd round area now (a lot will depend on his combine, as some feel he's too slow to pick higher than the 3rd). Christine Michael has good size, too, and he might slip simply because he got overshadowed at Texas A&M by both Manziell and the younger, shiftier Ben Malena. He's a guy to watch in the Senior exhibitions (he'll be in the East/West Shrine bowl).

Yeldon was getting a lot of carries, and they have a big RB coming in (Derrick Henry - 6'3, 245), who just set the HS career rushing record with 12,212 (including 4,261 yds rushing and 55 TD this season alone ). He scored over 150 TD and averaged nearly 9 yards a carry for his career. Henry was timed around 4.53 in the 40, which is just ridiculous for a guy his size. That kid looks like he might be starting right away. So.. yeah.. I see Lacy choosing to come out.I'm not saying Lacy is not a good back, but his stock was around a 3rd round grade before his recent string of big games. He chose a lot of good games to showcase himself for the NFL, though. My point was more that he won't have the Sr. Bowl or other exhibitions to continue to showcase himself. He'll have to focus on the Combine and workouts to really boost his stock. Of course, Richardson did the same thing a year ago, as have many underclassmen, so it's not at all unlikely that he can do that. I don't know if he'll be available in the 3rd any longer, and I don't know that the 49ers would target him with their 1st or 2nd round picks with their other pressing needs.As for Gillislee, I could be wrong. I was going by ESPN's draft tracker, which had him at 200. He doesn't look that big (bigger than LaMichael James, but not significantly so), so I didn't bother to cross check. I do see that other sites list him at 209 and 210. I don't think he runs like a big back, though, and he looks high cut (sort of DeMarco Murray like), which is why I wouldn't really consider him that 'different' a back than what they have. I do think he could be an every down back, but his resume is (despite playing four years) a little short. I've only seen maybe 2-3 games, and he didn't really stand out to me. He was good, but not "oh, who is that guy" good.
