Wide receiver and cornerback promise to be two areas of need for the 49ers during the offseason, and today's bowl games offer both, according to CBS Sports draft guru Rob Rang.
The first game, the Champs Sports Bowl (2:30 p.m., ESPN), pits Florida State against Notre Dame and features one of the top receivers, Notre Dame's Michael Floyd. Rang notes that the 49ers, who will be picking in the 20s or 30s this year, likely won't be in position to take Floyd in the first round. But he noted that the Falcons were in a similar spot last year and traded up to take Alabama's Julio Jones.
Floyd (95 catches, 1,106 yards, 8 TDs) will be going against legitimate competition in Florida State cornerbacks Greg Reid and Xavier Rhodes.
The other intriguing game is the Alamo Bowl (6 p.m., ESPN) between Baylor and Washington. That game will pit Baylor receiver Kendall Wright (101 catches, 1,572 yards, 13 TDs) against Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant, who is the younger brother of NFL cornerbacks Marcus Trufant and Isaiah Trufant.
