MT: 49ers Depth Chart Preview

Posted by Taylor Price on June 18, 2013 – 11:38 AM

The 49ers won’t reveal an official depth chart until preseason games begin in August, but Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee gave a preview of what San Francisco’s depth could look like when training camp begins.

Barrows placed fourth-year wideout Kyle Williams ahead of last year’s first-round pick A.J. Jenkins to start opposite of Anquan Boldin.

The wide receiver positions will certainly be evaluated closely all through camp. But for now, the speculation game will continue.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s Morning Tailgate.

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com reviewed last season’s NFC title game with Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com previewed the 49ers long snapper competition in camp.

NFL.com listed tight end Vance McDonald among the league’s rookie standouts this offseason.

ESPN the Magazine’s Fantasy Football issue featured Colin Kaepernick on the cover.

49ers.com went inside Levi’s® Stadium via the team’s Vine account.

    If Reid doesn’t develop we have a huge issue at safety. Even if he does, we have issues at CB, including getting T Brown into camp.
    Williams is comforting, Having Mario too, now I can sleep at night. McD and Vernon are going to fill most of Crabtree’s role. Nobody can fill all of it.
    My bet is LaMike has a breakout season. I’ll say it again. He’s not a 3rd string tailback he is a 1st string Xback.
    Kap moves from top 10 to top 5 QB by mid-season.

    “McD and Vernon are going to fill most of Crabtree’s role. Nobody can fill all of it.”

    The list of things Davis can do and Crabtree can’t do is a lot longer than the list of things Crabtree can do and Davis can’t.

    The stench that comes from a Fatal Error blog is much more pungent then the stench coming from a fresh pile of cow sh!t.

    “it will even out, as long as “the kaep” is navigating, he’ll spread out the wealth on all receivers…….”

    That’s funny: Are you basing this on precedent? (No.) Projection? (No.) Blind hope? (Yes.)

    Let’s see him “spread” the ball around. It would be good for the team. If he does it with any measure of competence, it won’t come with pick-sixes like the one Sam Shields nabbed in the 2012 Divisional Playoff. And if he doesn’t, he’d better learn to take better angles on the ball-carrying defenders.

    But to say that he is going to ‘spread the ball around’ based on what he has already done and not on what you hope he will do after a single off-season is just blind stupidity.

    And that smell? It’s the odor of certain users’ decomposing brains putrefying from disuse of their capacity for raw logic. There, I one-upped you, and it really wasn’t that hard.

    Four thumbs down, and not a single attempt to argue the point directly? Man, that truth must really hurt.

    For all those saying LaMichael and Gore will be a threat.. don’t forget there is also Hunter coming back. The RB position will be big, as long as Gore stays healthy.

    I too am worried about our DBs, they were toasted all post season. Everything I have read, CJ Spiller is the lead for Goldston replacement, not Reid.
    With AJ Jenkins sitting behind K Wiliams, looks like Baalke might have missed on the past two #1 picks. Still early.

    We need Manningham to come back 100% in Sept. It will be the offense that keeps us in games this year. Defense upfront will be great, back end, will be the achillles heal.

    CJ SpillMAN i mean. THe other plays for Buffalo…

    @ Phatalphantasy.

    With a full offseason and more tutoring from Harbaugh and company, Kaep has the tangibles to spread the ball around. Last year Crabtree had the bulk of the catches and looks, with him out this year, he is forced to find another “security blanket” . I do think kaep will be better at spreading the ball around, and from the sounds of the media reports so far this offseason he is. The interception you mentioned above, I believe was based on mere nervousness moreso than ability or competence. He had what 7 starts before that game?

    Time will tell if he is able to make all the reads, but if he does, 49ers will have one of the better offenses in their conference. If teams are able to limit him, it will be a long season

    I suppose if I get on here and say, “I am a great brain surgeon who has saved a lot of lives”, than that will make it true and I will sleep better at night convincing myself of this? “One-upped? Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

    We have depth charts for offense & defense but beyond the kicker, the punter’
    snapper and return specialists there is never one for the other 9 or 10 players
    at the various positions in formations that kick off,punt. field goal, and recieve.
    Special teams have factored in the last 2 post seasons for the 9ers and most
    agree they didn’t need that 102 yd. return for a TD. last February.
    Some players have been drafted or obtained specifically for their special team
    talent eg the missing Blake Costanzo and Colin Jones.
    How about a look at that?
