I think the 49ers plan at RB is this:
Hunter-change of pace-future starter (to split carries with James)
James-home run threat, James is also a nice receiver
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.
Dixon is gone. Cartwright is a Special Teams guy, basically brought in to replace Costanzo.
Kyle Williams is gone. Ginn is a better and more experienced return guy than anyone we have.
I think we keep 6 backs, and all active on gamedays, Gore, Miller, James, Hunter, Jacobs and Cartwright.
