5 NFL Draft Prospects Who Will Fill the San Francisco 49ers' Biggest Needs
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports
49ers' GM Trent Baalke is already considering his 2014 draft options.

The 2013 regular season just ended with the San Francisco 49ers sporting a record of 12-4. They are the fifth seed in the upcoming playoffs and will travel to Green Bay to face the Packers in a first-round contest.

Even though there is still plenty of football left to be played as the 49ers focus on their ultimate goal of winning the sixth Super Bowl in franchise history, GM Trent Baalke and his scouts are already looking ahead to their options for the upcoming draft. 

Talent evaluation, the scouting combine, individual workouts and player interviews will be upon us soon enough. Let's take a sneak peek at the 49ers' most pressing needs and who might be available to fill those needs.
