The San Francisco 49ers will look to add pass rush talent this offseason , but the 2019 NFL Draft might end up offering the best chance at an impact player. We already know the 49ers were shot down in their bid for Khalil Mack, and things likely won’t get much easier when free agency arrives.Houston Texans OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney and Dallas Cowboys edge rusher DeMarcus Lawrence are two intriguing options, but it is possible neither hits free agency. Lawrence is playing on the franchise tag this season, and the team could elect to franchise him again in 2019. One report said he would not play under a second tag, so we’ll see what comes of that.Clowney is playing the 2018 season on the fifth year option of his rookie contract. The Texans are likely to tag him this offseason, which could set up a legal skirmish over his position status. Clowney plays a hybrid role that some list as a linebacker and others listed as a defensive end. The franchise tag tender for defensive ends is roughly $2 million higher than that of linebackers. Over the weekend Jimmie Ward Jersey , Jason La Canfora reported the Texans want to tag him as a linebacker, while Clowney wants the defensive end tag.Whatever the result of that, it seems likely that Clowney plays 2019 under the franchise tag if he does not agree to a long-term deal. The Texans could use the exclusive franchise tag, but if they don’t, would you give up two first round picks and a monster contract to land Clowney? He’s not Khalil Mack, but is he worth a pair of firsts? We’re past the midseason mark and still have some football left. It’s time to look at all the 49ers units and discuss what we like and don’t like out of them for 2018. Everyone knew when Jerick McKinnon tore his ACL that the 49ers’ running backs took a hit. McKinnon signed a nice deal in free agency and was looked at as the ‘the guy’ with Matt Breida coming in as a sidekick. What happened was Breida has become the guy and now a duo of McKinnon and Breida has fans drooling for 2019. The 49ers running backs—and running game by extension—are competing with the offensive line as most improved unit in 2018. The fact both are productive because of the other is not a coincidence.And Kyle Shanahan looks like he can do no wrong with running backs.McKinnon Dwight Clark Color Rush Jersey , Breida, down? Call in Raheem Mostert. Sure Joe Williams didn’t pan out, but remember, Shanahan has a UDFA in Breida gashing defenses. And let’s not forget Kyle Juszczyk, a player who has spelled the running backs now with the frequent injuries to Brieda and the season ending injury to Mostert. Beyond fullback, he’s also the emergency quarterback. So there’s that. Speaking of Mostert , he even was coming into his own until an unfortunate broken forearm. At first after his series of fumbles, many (including myself) were about to write him off as a scab running back. Instead, Mostert developed into a solid third running back, sometimes even outplaying the second running back, Alfred Morris. Breida currently sits with 642 yards of the teams 1,336 total yards rushing. As a whole the 49ers sit at third in total rushing yards and tenth in yards per carry. Once McKinnon gets back Kyle Juszczyk Jersey , the sky’s the limit and some difficult decisions will have to be made. This year, the backfield was a question mark with McKinnon’s injury and yet it is one of the stronger units on the squad. Just think of what they would be like full strength. What are your impressions of the running backs at midseason?
