Count Donald Trump among the crowd curious about Tom Brady’s status.

Nelson became the salary-cap casualty over Cobb, because at age 32, Nelson has lost much of his speed, quickness and versatility. Cobb didn’t have a great 2017 season, either, but he’s five years younger and can rebound better in his comfortable slot receiving role.
There might be greater appeal, though, in Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds because of his versatility to potentially flank Foster against the run while also getting to the quarterback. Davenport has great upside as a sack artist, but Edmunds is a little more complete at another position of need. Georgia’s Roquan Smith is a similar playmaker firmly on the 49ers’ second-level radar for the first round.
