San Francisco 49ers Draft Preview; 2016 Schedule Released
With the NFL Draft set to begin on April 28th, let’s take a look at this year’s San Francisco 49ers Draft Preview and schedule.
San Francisco 49ers’ Draft Preview
Whether Colin Kaepernick graces the Niner’s roster come draft night or not, is really irrelevant in the big picture. At the #7 spot, new Head Coach Chip Kelly will make finding a QB to run his offense a priority.
After a failed attempt in Philadelphia, Kelly is looking to make a splash in the Bay Area. He needs a viable QB to do this and Kaepernicks’ failure to turn things around has left little doubt that the QB spot will be a primary focus for San Francisco.
Kelly will also look to seek out Wide Receivers to fit into his scheme as well as some assistance upfront to help facilitate the passing game. They have a lot of work to do and a new coach who likes to revamp teams to his needs.
Look for the 49ers to make some big changes come draft day in hopes of returning to the days of old.
