49ers’ 2016 draft fallout: Several prominent players are on notice

It was a great four-day run for the players who got drafted, but now there are several 49ers who should feel quite worried about their job security. The roster needs a good housecleaning, and many players who were on the 2015 team that went 5-11 will not be on the 53-man roster to start the 2016 season.

San Francisco 49ers: how to make sure they nail this draft

If you think Trent Baalke is looking to to implement a new game plan to rectify the implosion which shattered a team who two years ago had arguably the most athletic roster, you’re wrong.
