Most media and followers of the San Francisco 49ers pay attention to the NFL draft now more than ever, because let’s face it: This is a team that has a very modest approach to free agency. The foundation of this team is already in place, and the philosophy of the new regime is to draft and extend.

The 49ers prefer homegrown talent—but it doesn’t mean they won’t find auxiliary players on the open market.

General manager Trent Baalke and coach Jim Harbaugh will need to maneuver carefully, as to not get caught up in enticing opportunities and overextend themselves. This offseason will be a formative one for the future of this team.

Here are the decisions that will be on San Francisco’s plate and how they should approach it.
