team needs (according to walt football
Two Safeties: Dashon Goldson is a free agent, while Donte Whitner surrendered more touchdowns than any other safety in 2012. If the Super Bowl proved anything, it's that the 49ers have to upgrade their secondary.
Wide Receiver: Mario Manningham, coming off ACL and PCL tears, could be cut this offseason. Randy Moss, whose lethargy finally cost the 49ers in the Super Bowl, won't be back. San Francisco has to find a secondary wideout for Colin Kaepernick.
Cornerback: You have to wonder if the heavily penalized Chris Culliver will be back next year after insulting the San Francisco community in the week leading up to the Super Bowl. Joe Flacco mercilessly torched Culliver, who can be upgraded. Meanwhile, Carlos Rogers will be 32, so he won't be around much longer.
Rush Linebacker: Parys Haralson could be a cap casualty. The 49ers were already thin at rush linebacker, so they'll have to add depth behind Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks.
Nose Tackle: The 49ers proved last year that they don't really need a full-time nose tackle, but they could certainly use one to make their defense better.
Defensive End: San Francisco has to find a successor for Justin Smith, a 34-year-old entering his contract season.
Center: Jonathan Goodwin, who just turned 34, will be entering his contract year in 2013. He could be replaced this offseason.
Offensive Tackle: There isn't much depth behind Joe Staley and Anthony Davis.
Tight End: San Francisco will have to find a blocking tight end if Delanie Walker isn't retained.
Kicker: David Akers missed more field goals than any other kicker in the NFL this past season.
