Team Needs:

Safety: With former starting safety Dashon Goldson now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 49ers will address the safety position early in the draft. Don’t be surprised if they move up in the first round to select the top safety available.

Defensive line: The defense showed last season that when Justin and Aldon Smith go down with injuries or are limited because of being hurt, the defense suffers big time. The D-line needs a lot of help.

Wide Receiver: Despite the addition of Anquan Boldin, and hopefully the emergence of A.J. Jenkins, the 49ers will need to address wide receiver with one of their early round picks. Don’t forget, both Kyle Williams and Mario Mannigham are coming off ACL injuries, so the Niners will need some insurance at receiver.

Cornerback: Sure, Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown are good players to start for the 49ers, but they could use some new talent as both CBs struggled late last season and the playoffs. The addition of Nnamdi Asomugha will help at cornerback, but like Rogers he is getting older, so the Niners need to find younger players to groom for the future.

Tight end: With Delaine Walker now with the Tennessee Titans, the Niners don’t have much depth at tight end after Vernon Davis. It would be wise for the Niners to get some depth at tight end in the draft that can contribute right away.
