Do the 49ers need to draft one of these top-10 RB prospects?

Ageless wonder or over the hill. A thin line exists between the two when it comes to running backs aged 30 and older. Which brings us to one Frank Gore. The 49ers’ all-time leading rusher turns 31 in May, and although he is coming off his seventh 1,000-yard season, the question of how much longer can he go as the team’s premiere back has to be posed.
