For me, these positions have to be addressed: Edge, LT, CB, TE. In that order.   I'm going TE instead of WR, because I'm going to be hopeful that our young horses at WR will get better. Even

Sign either Allen Robinson, David Moore, or Kenny Golladay   Sign Romeo Okwara   Draft Samuel Cosmi at 21    Draft Greg Newsome II in the second round 

Not at all, I think it would be a big mistake.

Let me flip this on you. Could this team afford to rely on Odell Beckham, just from an injury/production standpoint?

Good point bc hes only played a full 16 twice in his career. I like him as a talent, not sure about him in the locker room. If we did anything would have to start out short term.

I think he's a bad fit in the locker room. Drama is just common to some people, and he seems to be that kind of person. I'm not calling him a bad person, or a bad teammate, and he's certainly not a bad player, but you can almost count on something Odell-centric happening on whatever team he plays for. 


Add to that his inconsistent availability, and the fact that he hasn't had really good production in four seasons, and I don't see a reason to consider giving up major assets and money to try to acquire him.

Why would Trent Williams sign here or anywhere for one year?


Most seem to think he’s going to a sign a deal for 4-years and a big payload!  

Good question, bare in mind we are playing in fantasy land here. Peace out :)

#1. OK first move I would do is trade back and acquire another 2nd, get our 3rd back  and maybe a 3rd day pick 

#2. sign Jonnu Smith

#3. sign Bud Dupree to a 2yr prove it deal

#4  trade for either LT Orlando Brown or The LT from San Francisco that played LT beside Nelson  at Notre Dame

I hope we retain several of our own free agents, but I trust in Ballard and his crew to do the right thing.

Just a few quiet moves that would enhance what we have and continuing to build through the Draft. It will be interesting to see how this all falls together

The 49er LT that I was referring to McGlinchey, would long term solution to LT

Improve the pass rush

Upgrade secondary play 

Solidify the Oline and improve depth 

Find a receiving TE that is a mismatch 

Upgrade receiving corps

Improve coaching 



Obviously, how they go about accomplishing these goals (with the exception of Improve coaching) could be a combination of draft, free agency, trade and/or signing their own.
 There really are a lot of things we aren’t privy to and some people forget they’ve got some pretty solid players they have to sign.
  The coaching staff has changed as well and that may hurt or help us, we’ll see.

  I feel confident Reich will look at his coaching mistakes and Ballard’s group will make some good decisions.

  Sorry for the long post. I know you were only looking for 4 specific moves but there’s a lot of things they have to consider that will determine what the best course of action is.

4 moves huh?


Trade Wentz to KC for Mahomes

Trade Campbell to AZ for Hopkins

Trade Banogu to PIT for TJ Watt

Trade Chesley to TB for Carlton Davis.

    • Good lord. I simply posted an article from rotoworld. If you don’t like it then let them know you disagree with the people who are usually correct with the info they receive. I wasn’t aware I would be told I was wrong for posting an article from a highly reputable site. You seriously need to relax. 
    • Eh maybe but I think it was more of let’s see how the draft shakes out and who is cut yet to make room to sign the rookies they picked. There’s still teams that have to cut some players just to get under the cap once the rookies sign. 
    • Dude I agree, but our base kinda concept is T2 with their personnel I think.  They play a variety of zones and trade off a lot.  They get lost in the secondary.  It’s actually complex as hell.   It’s possible Rock and Blackmon are gonna click as they learn the system, but it’s also possible IMO they continue to play replacement level foot ball.  Rock has issues but on many of his plays he gets NO help from the safeties. they want these guys to play downhill like T2, but they have to show they can cover first.  It might work and be exciting as hell.                       I am in lockstep with the Walker thing.  That’s why you never seem to know wth this team is trying to do well with SCHEME AND PERSONNEL.   sorry for yelling.  I don’t think our ideas about this team are really very different.     Franks a pretty good coach man.
    • Wentz wasn't my favourite option when we got him but watching some of his games from his rookie and 2nd year the guy has magic, can't wait.
