San Francisco had the fewest pass attempts in the NFL this year, at 456, counting sacks. The league average this season was 607 attempts.

Matt Williamson's take: Tight ends/receivers - ESPN
"I'd almost rather see them move from No. 9 to No. 15 or No. 16 and take the best tight end on the board. It looks like there's three of them that are potential first-rounders this year: Eric Ebron (North Carolina), Jace Amaro (Texas Tech), and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Washington). I think a tight end would go a long way in that offense. I don't think [Scott Chandler] is impressive."
