How can you not? That type of character can go a long way. As we get closer to training camp, Greenlaw will have every opportunity to show his worth. Both of the 49ers starting linebackers are currently sidelined with an injury. Kwon Alexander will be out indefinitely after tearing his ACL back in October of 2018. Fred Warner had a clean-up procedure on his knee and will be out until training camp.Bleacher Report predicted every teams surprise rookie, and picked Greenlaw for the 49ers:Greenlaw has plenty of athleticism, something that was sorely lacking on the Niners defense a year ago. With the absence of Warner and Alexander , Greenlaw’s goal should be to show enough promise, so defensive coordinator Robert Saleh at the very least has the speedy rookie in a sub-package defense.The former safety has always shown well in space. If Greenlaw is comfortable in the 49ers defense in space and can wear a couple of different hats—think everywhere from in the box to even in the slot, his versatility could go a long way in him seeing more snaps than we all expected for Greenlaw as a rookie.It could be something as simple as effort, or something as important as being a sure-tackler. Greenlaw will have the type of exposure most fifth rounders dream of. Now it’s up to him to take full advantage of that. The NFL season is winding down which means some players have contracts ending. Some players will get franchised or extended but others will be hitting the open market. We’ll take a look at each position and see if any hopeful players would be a good fit for the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers didn’t need running backs, but they are going to be in need of some guards. Be it free agency or through the draft Arik Armstead Jersey , they are going to need some bodies. The team does have Laken Tomlinson on the left side, but that right guard spot has question marks. Joshua Garnett is still on the team, though for how long anyone can guess. Mike Person carved out a role for himself at right guard, but he’s scheduled to become a free agent. And if Person leaves, that’s a big gap to fill. And Tomlinson himself may not be safe either. Maybe the 49ers decide to get competition on both sides? Much like with fullbacks and running backs Frank Gore Color Rush Jersey , I’m looping both left and right guards in this list and we can sort things out in the comments. There’s a lot available. For one thing, if you think the 49ers should give Marcus Martin another shot, that could be arranged (no, he’s not coming back). Zane Beadles is also on the market if you are so inclined to try him again. But to get exactly what the 49ers need, right guard is the priority. They will need a good zone-blocking guard with some speed and agility to them , which narrows the playing field a bit. The 49ers could try getting a power blocker, but it might take more time to acclimate to Shanahan’s systemMany teams will run different run-blocking schemes through a single game, but the one guy who sticks out to me that knows the Shanahan scheme is Atlanta Falcons guard Andy Levitre. Yes, he’s a bit long in the tooth and yes, he’s a left guard Laken Tomlinson Jersey , but Levitre has experience in Shanahan’s offense. If the 49ers wanted to plug him in on a two-year deal for the right side (or move Tomlinson over) they could then draft a guard of the future and have them develop. Ramon Foster from the Pittsburgh Steelers is another name to keep an eye on. I don’t care about the offense over there, the Steelers run game has been dominant no matter who they put back there to carry the rock and Ben Roethlisberger has also had adequate time to throw the ball. Foster is worth a conversation even if the Steelers run a bit more of a power than zone run-blocking scheme. Finally, Tre Hopkins with the Cincinnati Bengals could be worth a look. He’s 27, plays right guard, and from what I could tell Terrell Owens Color Rush Jersey , the Bengals run the outside zone quite a bit. So maybe Hopkins could have a fit?Here’s your free agent guards per Over the Cap. Things could change with franchise tags and deals, but all of the below have contracts expiring.Would you be interested in any of these guards coming to Santa Clara?
