With the combine, pro days and draft on the horizon, there was NFL talent to be seen today at Tropicana Field in St. Petersberg, Fla.

But what do the 49ers need?

After all San Francisco is in the NFC Championship Game for the third consecutive year under head coach Jim Harbaugh, but a team's window closes fast and injuries are part of life in the NFL meaning general manager Trent Baalke and the scouting department are endlessly looking at players.

The 49ers struck gold in the 2011 draft, blew it in 2012 and rebounded in 2013.

Fortunately, San Francisco seems destined to have 13 draft choices (including compensatory picks) for the second straight year.

Here are five players from the Shrine Game who could interest the 49ers come April.
