Rookies and FAs You Root For

How can you not root for Lattimore? I think Tank is going to be special.
I do not understand the zone crush on M. Grey?
Of course, all of them.

I'd really like to see Ricardo become a star. I like guys who experienced adversity and never quit, keep fighting and succeed.

you root for all of them. you do not root for a player to fail because you did not like the pick or the signing. The fact of the matter is that they are on the team now, they have given you no reason to hate them in a niner uniform. what they did in college or with their previous nfl team is not valuable, no matter how much cherry picking you want to do with a few pics and video from you tube. you root for them as long as they are on the team, after they leave the team, you no longer care about them
I'm rooting for all of them. I guess that if I had to choose, I'd like to see Lockette tear it up because he seems to have a special bro relationship with Kaepernick. Plus, as mentioned above, he's gone through some adversity. And, on top of all that, it would be sweet if he turned into something good because the Seahawks quit on him.

Right. If a 6'3", 4.4 second 40 guy ended up being a good receiver, it would be an absolute bonanza for the Niners.
I like to have long shots that I root for. My newest since he joined the team is Okoye. If this kid can make it not only will it be a good story, but the Niners will have a beast playing on Sundays. I am rooting for him the most out of all the long shots.
BJ Daniels
Lawrence Okoye
BJ Daniels
Marcus Cooper
Nick Moody

I honestly think Okoye will make the 53. I get the feeling that JH & Co. really wants to develop this guy. I see Cooper making the 53, maybe even the 46. I'm really pulling for Moody to make this team. I like his SP abilities. The only other FA additions I'm excited about is Nnamdi and Osgood, maybe Skuta. To me, all others are really just camp fodder. I'd like to see us develop our own rookies and draftees. I'm also rooting for D. Fleming (who's been working out at ILB I hear) and Cam Johnson to make this team.

I support all of my 49ers

but this pre-season I will be rooting extra hard for my boy Marquies Gray to make the team .....I'm from Minnesota and I always support the gophers who went on to careers in the NFL

Gray is an unbelievable physical talent , if any team can tap all of his potential ...its our 49ers

Celek does have the edge being TE is his natural position ...but Gray has the potential to develop into a swiss army knife for our offense (TE, FB, H-back) ...Harbaugh will find some work for a 6 '4 and 250 pound player with amazing athletic ability......gotta love pre-season
Isn't it obvious? They see Gray as a possible Delanie Walker Rev. 2.
