And if i could choose a 4th : Anthony Davis
You're the only one who picked Aldon. My personal three are:
1. ALDON SMITH: You haven't seen anything yet. This kid is just going to explode on NFL lines this year. He's going to wreak havoc in the backfield like no player you've ever seen. After all the bad press he's endured this offseason, he's probably chomping at the bit to get back into camp and do the kind of damage we like.
2. KENDALL HUNTER: You won't see much of LaMichael James because Kendall will keep him on the bench with stellar play.
3. ALEX SMITH: Add some new weapons with some new confidence, and you've got an Alex you only dreamed of seeing.
I'll pass... it's really hard to tell and on this talented team there are about 20 different options. Crabtree, Boone, Alex Smith, T. Brown, Iupati, Anthony Davis, Aldon (as a complete 3 down player), Culliver, Perrish Cox/Brock, Hunter, James, Kyle Williams, RJF, Tukuafa etc, etc.
Anthony Davis - Was super young coming into the NFL, and will only get better at RT
Alex Boone - If he becomes the RG, as I think he will, I expect him to help big time on the OL
Michael Crabtree - I hope he breaks out finally, if he plays most of preseason, he should be on fire.
Bonus: Randy Moss - I feel Randy will come out and be a huge part of the offense, unlike Braylon, he won't drop easy passes.
3 on Defense are
Ray McDonald - I expect him to fully transition into a starter and a top 15 DE
Chris Culliver - Had a good rookie season, and will be a great 3rd CB behind 2 really good CBs in Rogers and Brown
Tarell Brown - Had a great season, sucked he got hurt on a freak play with Goldson, or else we may of been looking at the 6th Super Bowl, I cringe at seeing Brock in at CB. got burned by new teammate Mario Manningham.
Bonus: Donte Whitner - I see him becoming a smash mouth and hard hitting SS, and hoping he gets extended past 2013, played great in 2011.
I expect our rooks to get limited time, Jenkins won't suit up most of time, I think Williams will now make the team due to Jenkins struggles. James will see some, but may lose to Jacobs, others like Robinson and Looney will be either inactive or limited time.
