RDC from Clovis: Hey Bill, the Niners are in contract talks with Brandon Lloyd. To me this seems like a whatever move, but is it more indication that the Niners will be looking to go CB first pick over WR?
Bill Williamson: It would be a make-good deal, which does not make him a sure thing to make the team. It would not change the draft approach at all.
Note: CSN Bay Area report Thursday that the 49ers are talking to Lloyd about a contract. The former 49er did not play in the NFL season.
Chris from Walnut Creek: Chris Cook's comments seem to indicate the Niners have a preference for tall, long-armed corners in the Seattle mold. Would this indicate that they are more interested in the Dennard/McGill/Jean-Bapsiste mold of corners than the Jason Verrett's?
BW: I can see both Verrett in first round and a McGill or Jean-Bapsiste in second round. Why not stack the position?
Tony from Richmond, Calif.: Is 2014 pretty much a wash for NaVorro Bowman? Meaning the linebacker won't return to his Pro Bowl until he's two years removed from his serious knee injury, if ever.
BW: Think of it like Crabtree last season. Coming back in second half of season, and being at his best for the playoff push.
Here are some highlights from our San Francisco 49ers' chat, which was held earlier Thursday:RDC from Clovis: Hey Bill, the Niners are in contract talks with Brandon Lloyd.
