Hunter isn't going anywhere, Gore is the one who's days are numbered.

agree

Sadly that was my thinking. It might be Gore who might be on his way out.

I agree. This coming year might be Gore's last good year. Heck, last year might have been Gore's last good year. He's got only a little bit left in the tank.
Hunter + James = Screens Alll day baby!! aha

So are we going to carry four runningbacks this season?

Frank Gore, the Workhorse
Kendall Hunter, the Change-of-Pace
Anthony Dixon OR Brandon Jacobs, the Power
LaMichael James, the Homerun Threat

Can he return punts as well?

I see. We now have two off-tackle RB's with speed and home run threats BUT I thought Hunter would be the perfect Sproles-like player for us. Is he to take over Gore's spot in a year or two?

So fast. I love it. We've needed super speed on offense for years.
Hunter isn't going anyplace. Hunter isn't a change of pace fast bak like James is. In 2 years these two will be our guys and they will compliment one another very well like Carolinas system

I think you could be right. But replace two years with one year.
Love it, works for me.

And based on last years 61st pick, Jonas Mouton deal, James will sign a 4yr deal worth around $2.974M, with $874K in Signing Bonus, and a 1st year salary of $608K
Imagine if Kaep pans out. With James, Hunter, and Jenkins, our offense could be ridiculously explosive.

Screens! Speed!
I think the 49ers plan at RB is this:

Gore-starter/"work horse"
Hunter-change of pace-future starter (to split carries with James)
James-home run threat, James is also a nice receiver
Jacobs-power back

this spells doom to Dixon for sure and most likely Rock Cartwright.

I also think with the selection of Jenkins in round 1 and James in round 2. Ted Ginn Jr might be in trouble. Both Jenkins and James can return kicks and we now have 3 small WRs. Ginn may have 2 prove it at WR to make the roster, though I think he ultimately sticks.
