9 NFL Draft Prospects Every San Francisco 49ers Fan Should Know About
Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports
Could Oregon State wideout Bradin Cooks find his way into a 49ers uniform in 2014?

Even though the San Francisco 49ers are more concerned with making a push in the 2014 NFL playoffs, their focus cannot be too far removed from the 2014 NFL draft.

Much like last year, the 49ers will enter the 2014 draft with a plethora of picks—13 to be precise, per Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.

That gives San Francisco and general manager Trent Baalke plenty of flexibility to make some moves in this upcoming draft.  Like last year, the 49ers do not have 13 holes to fill on the roster. 

They will have some pressing needs, however.

For starters, the 49ers may potentially be losing a number of key players to free agency this upcoming offseason.

Safety Donte Whitner, cornerback Tarell Brown and wide receiver Anquan Boldin highlight a cast of pending free agents in 2014.

While it is possible the 49ers look to bolster their current roster through free-agent acquisitions, re-signings and trades, the NFL draft may be the best means for San Francisco to find its future stars.

Let us take a look at nine collegiate prospects the 49ers may eye in this upcoming draft.

Every one of these prospects fits a specific need San Francisco will have this offseason and entering next year.  While some are bona fide stud prospects, others may be less noteworthy yet no less significant.
