The San Francisco 49ers had a tremendous 2017 rookie class and found their franchise quarterback, but some positions still require some attention. Here we take a look at some positions of need , and some possible solutions for them.

If you’re like me, at least one time since playoffs began you watch Jimmy Garoppolo highlight videos on YouTube and thanking whichever force brought general manager John Lynch to the helm (ok maybe not).

Certainly the former hard-hitting safety and FOX analyst has the full confidence of the San Francisco 49ers fandom after an exceptional NFL Draft class and what could possibly be one of the all-time great trade heists if the early returns from Garoppolo are any indication.

Well now it’s time for round two. Lynch has shown he can draft and sign free agents well, and no doubt these positions will be a key focus for him and the invaluable Niners draft team.

I’ve ranked them from least to most important by personal opinion, but really all five positions should be invested in if possible.
