San Francisco 49ers Final Free-Agency Outlook and Predictions
Tony Avelar/Associated Press

The 2014 NFL free-agent period is imminent, which means it's time to forecast the situation for the San Francisco 49ers

As we've seen, this is a ballclub that's been further and further removed from free agency as it has added the final pieces in three drafts under coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke. Handpicking and developing its own young players, and for fairly cheap, has continued to be the ultimate team-building philosophy. 

But the 49ers have more holes to fill at key positions. Can they stay afloat with supplementing talent via free agency? 

They may dip into the open market to a degree. Low-cost veterans at need positions will have to be the one exception if the team is not re-signing its own. It is also important to assess what the 49ers need and what type of resources they'll have available to them. There can't be any impulse shopping.

This will look at their salary-cap space, current free agents, potential cut candidates, team needs and possible targets.
