Will Greg Roman get poached from San Francisco?
Nose tackle/defensive tackle
The 49ers are in good shape on the defensive line. They drafted Tank Carradine in the 2013 NFL draft to eventually help replace 34-year-old Justin Smith. Once again, Ray McDonald is having a productive season.
But they could use a bit more depth on the interior of the defensive line.
The Glenn Dorsey nose tackle experiment worked well. He played in all 16 games and recorded 41 tackles and two sacks.
Dorsey is under contract for one more season. Now is the time to groom a replacement.
The 49ers might already have his successor under contract (Quinton Dial or Ian Williams could be that guy). They could draft another prospect in the middle rounds to add more competition to the position.
Colt McCoy is in a contract year. If the 49ers don't re-sign him, they could draft a quarterback in the mid-to-late rounds and/or sign another veteran.
Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has the Niners drafting Clemson's Tajh Boyd in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft.
Offensive coordinator? Defensive line coach?
ESPN.com's Bill Williamson reported that Greg Roman and Jim Tomsula are drawing interest for head coaching gigs.
Tomsula, who has never been an NFL coordinator, has been San Francisco's defensive line coach since 2007. In the last five seasons, the 49ers have ranked in the top six in rushing yards allowed per game in each season. It's no surprise he's a hot commodity.
Roman came from Stanford with Jim Harbaugh. The 41-year-old has been the offensive coordinator since 2011.
Often criticized for his play-calling by 49ers fans, Roman has directed a ball-control offense that has finished in the top eight in rushing yards in his three seasons.
If either bolts, your guess is as good as mine on the replacement.
