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.
Quarterback(3): Alex Smith, Colin Kaepernick, Josh Johnson
Half Back(5): Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, Brandon Jacobs, Rock Cartwright

Wide Receiver (6): Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham, A.J. Jenkins, Randy Moss, Kyle Williams, Ted Ginn Jr.
Tackles (2): Joe Staley, Anthony Davis
Guards (4): Mike Iupati, Alex Boone, Daniel Kilgore, Joe Looney
Centers (2): Jonathan Goodwin, Jason Slowey
Defensive Tackles (3): Isaac Sopoaga, Ricky Jean Francois, Ian Williams
Outside Linebackers (4): Ahmad Brooks, Aldon Smith, Parys Haralson, Cam Johnson
