With the 49ers preparing for this upcoming NFL Draft, Culliver’s future with the team will greatly determine what the team does with their first-round pick as cornerback may now be the unanimous No. 1 need.
People tend to forget that in 2012, the 49ers added both WR Randy Moss and WR Mario Manningham via free-agency and then added another wide receiver in the draft with WR A.J. Jenkins. However, with Culliver coming off a torn ACL and recent off-the-field setbacks, I wouldn’t be surprised if they now go cornerback with their first-round pick as they clearly need to shore up that secondary with the loss of CB Tarell Brown and CB Carlos Rogers.
