Which of the 49ers players should I buy?
I’m not going to go into depth with the depth chart for the 49er players this week, but let’s start with the big name guys.
I’m going to do it with a little more precision this time, as the 49ingers depth charts are usually pretty spotty at this point.
Let’s begin with a few players who could surprise people this year.
If you don’t know who they are, this is probably the most popular article on Bleacher Report.
That’s because it’s probably the first one that most people read.
The 49ers depth will likely be even more of a surprise this year, because the 49s roster is currently filled with the likes of Michael Crabtree, Michael Wilhoite, and Quinton Patton.
These three players are the best in the NFL in 2017.
Crabtree has the most sacks in the league, while Wilhoites and Patton are second and third in the team’s total sacks with 14 and 11 respectively.
Patton is the team leader in tackles for loss with 11.5, and the 49-man roster is loaded with speed.
Crab is probably going to be the only guy in the entire NFL that can slow down all those speed guys, but Wilhoitis speed and athleticism will be used to his advantage.
While Crabtree and Wilhoits speed will be a huge help for the team, it’ll be hard to stop the 49ies run defense.
This team will have to be careful not to let their speed get out of control, but it’s not like the 49 can’t stop running plays and they’ve already shown that they can in recent years.
With all that said, I’m looking for a team with a defense that is built around a dominant run defense that’s also a very good pass defense.
I like to see the 49’s defensive line have some depth.
They have three starters that are either 6’6 or taller, and three that are 6’3 or taller.
The three biggest pieces of that depth are the aforementioned Wilhois, Patton, and Kapernick.
Kapernick will probably be the first to say that this is a weak spot on the 49 roster, and while he may be right, it’s possible that the 49 are just giving him the benefit of the doubt.
The team needs to figure out how to get a tackle for a big play.
They need a strong pass rusher.
That’s why I think the 49 will probably need to be wary of the likes and threats of LeSean McCoy and Vernon Davis.
McCoy and Davis are both great pass rushers, and they’re going to need a lot of help.
Both McCoy and Ryan Kelly are very talented pass ruses, but they’re not going be the big-play threats that they once were.
If they’re really going to make plays this season, they’ll need to improve on their pass rush this year and develop their speed as well.
The 49ers secondary could also use help.
They’ll be without All-Pro free safety Eric Reid, and I think they’ll want to have some younger talent at cornerback to help the 49 with the transition.
The last spot on that list might be the most exciting.
The defense has some great talent at safety, and even if the 49 is a bit stingy at that position, they could have a lot more depth than they did last year.
I’ll be curious to see if they can bring in a couple of free agents this off-season.
There are a couple players who will be the biggest surprises in the 49 team’s defense this year that I want to talk about, but I’m pretty sure I’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
I know that you’re probably already planning on picking some of these players up, but if you’re on the fence, be sure to read this article.
In other news, I’d like to give a big shout out to my buddy Josh, who made a huge donation to the 49es Super Bowl winning season.
You guys are awesome, and he made the Super Bowl team so he can be a part of this year’s 49ers team.
Thanks for reading, and thanks to Josh for making my day.
