2. Wide Receiver

Another area I would like to see an upgrade in is the wide receiver position. Outside of Deebo Samuel, Richie James, and Kendrick Bourne, every other current wide-out has a question mark next to their name.

Will Emmanuel Sanders return? Could Marquise Goodwin be possible trade bait? Trent Taylor and Jalen Hurd are recovering from surgeries — how impactful can they be? Dante Pettis — enough said.

So, going into the new season I’m sure upgrading the position has to be on their to-do list. Walking that fine line of making a big splash versus staying the course is such an underrated aspect of managing a professional football team.

The 49ers have been doing an awesome job of building a winning culture while adding complementary talent. So far the formula has been paying huge dividends, and their recent success can be attributed to the foundation that was put in place.
