I have heard many people argue that the 2012 draft class was poor for the Niners, I don't see it that way because the Niners balk at playing rookies when talent is sufficient. If Harbaugh and his staff stay true to form, they will insert the "redshirt freshmen" into the starting lineup. Since you guys are more passionate and knowledgeable about your team, who are the guys that are going to step up from that class and make a big splash this year??
I would be able to answer this question with more confidence after training camp is over but i'll take a stab at it.
There's still a lot of question marks surrounding AJ Jenkins but with Mario likely still rehabbing at the beginning of the season the opportunity is there for him to step up and make an impact.
Darius flemming was injured 10 minutes into TC so he is another big question mark.
Cam Johnson has an uphill battle to even make the roster with the addition of Lemonier this year and Parys being back healthy.
Trenton Robinson I don't see as much more than depth and ST's guy
If there is one guy who I think could surprise and really make a contribution it would be Joe Looney pushing Goodwin for the starting center Job.
