3. Klint Kubiak, Passing Game Specialist, San Francisco 49ers

One of the most sought-after offensive coordinator candidates of the offseason will undoubtedly be San Francisco 49ers passing game specialist Klint Kubiak. The son of Super Bowl champion head coach Gary Kubiak, Klint should be ready for another crack at being a coordinator. His lone year of coordinating came in 2021 with the Minnesota Vikings, but after spending some time with Kyle Shanahan this season, he's ready to bring a higher level of scheme wherever he goes.

Kubiak, Shanahan and the 49ers are home to the league's no. 2 overall passing attack and arguably the league MVP in Brock Purdy. By now, we all should know Purdy's story. He has gone from the last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to being one of the top, young quarterbacks in the league today. He leads the league in several passing categories and remains top-5 in all of the important ones.

The thing Shanahan's system is best at doing is scheming his best players open and putting them in position to make plays. If Kubiak is able to bring a similar system to Tennessee, I could see a guy like Tyjae Spears having a big season right away. Not only that, but maybe Kubiak is the one who helps Burks take a necessary step forward.
