No. 1: Offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn (Dolphins)

Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn still hasn't lived up to his first-round NFL Draft billing, and both injuries and underwhelming performances have bitten the 28 year old multiple times.

That said, San Francisco hasn't been afraid of taking on reclamation projects, and Wynn could easily make sense for an offensive line that needs plenty of reinforcement on its right side.

Wynn started seven games under head coach Mike McDaniel last season before a season-ending injury, so he's familiar with a 49ers-like offensive system. And Wynn also has the positional flexibility to move inside to guard, too, which is a position of need.

During that abbreviated Dolphins tenure, Wynn surrendered only four pressures and zero sacks, according to Pro Football Focus, meaning the 6-foot-2 and 310-pound frontside blocker can be perfectly adept at holding up in pass protection.

Considering that was a problem for incumbent right tackle Colton McKivitz last year, an upgrade to a player like Wynn might be in play.
