The 49ers could go any number of ways in this April's draft. That's one of the benefits of winning four games in almost two seasons -- anybody you draft will most likely be an upgrade. Running back Kevan Barlow (he of the -6.3 DPAR), has let the organization know that he -- and not Reggie Bush -- is the future in San Francisco. The article notes that, "... the 49ers' stick-thin roster arguably is thickest at running back." And when you think about all the problems facing Mike Nolan, I don't think Barlow is anywhere near the top of the list.

Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
