It wasn’t finesse or savvy that won these matchups, but brute strength.

49ers have work cut out searching for a defensive end in draft

The San Francisco 49ers are going to have their work cut out for them on draft day for 3-4 defensive ends, after losing Ricky Jean-Francois to the Colts, and aging veterans in Justin Smith who turns 34 in September and Ray McDonald who turns 29 in September too.
