San Francisco 49ers 2014 Draft: A Scouting Guide for East-West Shrine Game

Though it’s January and the NFL league year isn’t quite up yet, the big question in the offseason for the San Francisco 49ers will be: How can this team get better?

Sure, every team says it, but when you’re nearly maxed out on talent and aren’t looking to change the scheme, the task becomes more rigorous.

Fortunately, general manager Trent Baalke, national scout Matt Malaspina and the scouting department have been hard at work all year.

One of their first live opportunities is the 89th annual East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida on Saturday, January 18. This will be the first of two all-star games as the draft process really begins to pick up steam. At this game, 114 NFL prospects will be on display, representing 85 different schools.

Last year, more than 90 of the game’s participants were drafted or signed as free agents to NFL teams. And at least 100 were in NFL training camps. All told, a good percentage of the competition in Saturday’s game will be relevant. And no doubt, the 49ers will have eyes in the building.

Considering San Francisco’s team needs and philosophical approach to the offseason, we’ve compiled a list of prospects who are set to compete at the Shrine Game. The following will entail a briefing of the players that Baalke and Malaspina may be spying on and how they might be a fit.
