Why hiring Jets DC Jeff Ulbrich as the 49ers next DC makes sense

The San Francisco 49ers are set to announce their next defensive coordinator soon, according to a report from The Athletic’s Tim Kawakami, potentially erasing their biggest domino off the board heading into NFL Combine week.

Hear the 49ers might be closing in on a DC. Not sure when there'll be an announcement, but could be soon.
