Jonathan Joseph has emerged as an elite cornerback over the last few years. On a struggling Cincinnati team, it is being speculated that Joseph may not be re-signed.
If this is the case, the 49ers should make a strong effort to land the cornerback. In a first-round cornerback prospect-heavy draft, many draft experts have San Francisco looking at Nebraska's Prince Amukamara.
However, if the Niners can land Joseph on draft day, they can look to address another need in the first round, such as quarterback or a pass rusher.
Some will argue that the Niners will not look to give Joseph big money because they already have a huge contract to another corner, Nate Clement. However, if the 49ers can persuade Joseph to come to the Bay Area, they can not afford to not have him wear red and white next season.
