Well, the 49ers did sign Desmond Bishop, he of a couple starts last year when the team got decimated by injuries. Lots of guys are coming by for visits, including WRs Hakeem Nicks, erstwhile NY Giant, and ex-Vike Greg Jennings. Funny thing is, Michael Crabtree appears to be the forgotten WR as he dangles in free agent silence while players latch on to new teams. He may be a man without a team come June.
My hope at this point is we get a TE or two to compete with Vance McDonald. He has been underwhelming to say the least. Then again, the TE position last year was a wash, as VD did little to nothing, and the rest did less than that.
A slew of linebackers, including Lance Briggs, Phillip Wheeler, and Erin Henderson also paid visits last week. I’d like to see us get more line depth on both sides. Looks like that will be the focus in the draft.
Granted we need bodies to get through camp, and gaining depth will definitely help come draft day, but there’s nothing too thrilling about this process at this point. 28 days til the draft, and 24 days til I’m a year older . . .
