49ers cumulative 2023 offseason grade
Repeat after me: "Average isn't bad."
San Francisco gets a straight-up C-grade for its offseason efforts, losses and additions. In some regard, that's excellent. The departures from NFL free agency through the coaching staff could have been enough to severely weaken head coach Kyle Shanahan's team.
Even losing Jimmy Garoppolo, none of the 49ers' losses are dramatically bad, and some could make the argument the roster actually improved this offseason via the additions of Javon Hargrave and Isaiah Oliver.
Replacing DeMeco Ryans with Steve Wilks isn't quite a lateral move, but it's close. Wilks will be fine.
The only real questionable string of events the Niners had, of course, was the NFL Draft. And things probably would be glaringly different if someone other than Jake Moody had been the pick at No. 99 overall.
Still, San Francisco didn't have to draft too much for need and could reach a bit for luxury.
So, all said, it wasn't a bad offseason. It just wasn't a great one either. And, if you're feeling "ho-hum" about it, you're in the right alignment with our cumulative offseason grade.
