49er Depth Chart Projections

Organized team activities have begun. This is the part of the season where 90 men fight for a spot on the 53 man roster. It is far to early to know who will make the cut across the board but most of the starting spots can be penciled in for certainty with the exception of WR which will feature multiple receivers learning the various X,Y, and Z positions. Here is my estimation on what the 49er depth chart will look like come week 1 of the regular season. Players in bold are new additions to the roster from last year.
