Oh man. PDTShareTweetShareShareRaheem Mostert can benefit from Mitch WishnowskySome people like the fact the San Francisco 49ers took a punter in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Some people hate the fact the 49ers took a punter. Regardless of opinion, the 49ers snagged a shiny new punter to replace Bradley Pinion. With that said, we’ll give another reason to have a bit less hesitance towards WishnowskiThe thing about Wishnowsky is consistency.Of his 59 punts in 2018, he forced 24 kicks inside the 20-yard line and 25 fair catches. Yes there’s three blocks in there, but he’s either getting it to the 20-yard line where someone can take down the returner or he’s putting enough hangtime on it so the returner has to flag a fair catch. Enter: Raheem Mostert. Mostert has been kept on the 49ers roster not for his running back skills (that did, however, come in handy for 2018) but for his usage as a special teams gunner. When Mostert went down with the broken forearm in 2018, his absence was felt by the very next game. When he can bullet down the field and take out the poor punt returner is where Mostert’s main skills lie. Ahem, allow me: Combine Wishnowsky’s tendency to pin teams past the 20 or at least have the hangtime to keep them from going anywhere, with a special teams gunner like Mostert who is going to blast anyone who thinks of trying to run with it, and the pass rushing skills of Nick Bosa and company, equals a potential recipe for turnovers. If Wishnowsky can get in position to keep opposing offenses at the 10-yard line Adrian Colbert Jersey , this could be something to watch. An NFL playbook gets limited beyond an offense’s own 10-yard line and if the defensive line can shake things up like we all hope it can, the 49ers can get some pretty nice opportunities. Or it could just not get any turnovers like in 2018...but let’s cross our fingers for this punter. The Atlanta Falcons made one of the first big moves of the offseason following Super Bowl 53 when they released cornerback Robert Alford. The Falcons made the move because Alford had his worst season as a pro, turned 30 this past season, and was going to have a cap hit of $9.1 million this season. The Falcons cleared $7.9 million with the release, so it was not a surprising move.Alford is officially free and clear to sign with anybody that is interested. Players on an expiring contract do not get to negotiate with new teams until March, but because he was released now, Alford can begin negotiating with all 32 teams.The San Francisco 49ers have some questions at cornerback, and as soon as Alford was released, people started asking if the team should look into him. He had a miserable 2018 season, with opposing quarterbacks connecting with receivers for 849 yards and a passer rating of 138.9. If you think he hit the post-30 wall, so be it. But if you think he can rebound, he’s on the radar.The question is how the 49ers should approach the continued building of their cornerback depth chart. You can never have enough cornerbacks in a growing passing league, so I fully expect the team to add at least one cornerback this offseason. Competition is critical, but how would you look to approach it between the draft and free agency?
