Breaking Down San Francisco 49ers' Biggest Offseason Needs

Trent Baalke has some tough decisions to make.

The San Francisco 49ers don't have many glaring needs, but they have several position groups that need to be upgraded or replenished with youth.

Among those position groups are wide receiver and cornerback.

What are the 49ers' other needs? Here are a few notes before we begin.

I'm expecting the 49ers to re-sign kicker Phil Dawson. 

I considered putting running back on this list because Marcus Lattimore, who is the future of the position, is a major injury risk. However, with Frank Gore still going strong and Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James behind him, I think the 49ers will stick with what they have and reevaluate the position after the 2014 season. 

Offensive line coach Tim Drevno will join the USC coaching staff after the 49ers' playoff run. Though filling that role is definitely a need, I don't think it is as important as the following ones.
