Ranking San Francisco 49ers' 10 Best Moves of 2014 Offseason
USA TODAY Sports

In the 2014 offseason, the San Francisco 49ers re-signed a 1,000-yard wide receiver, drafted a highly rated center prospect and traded for an offensive threat from the AFC East.

All three made the cut for San Francisco's 10 best offseason moves. And all three were ranked in the top five.

For drafted players, I exchanged skill level and financial ramifications for perceived value, because until rookies take a snap in the NFL, it's hard to judge their skill level, and their contracts are based on the rookie-wage scale. 

There are two offseason moves that don't fit the above criteria on this list. For those (and to break ties), I considered their potential impact in comparison to the other moves.
