49ers All-Defense Fantasy Draft

Jul 7, 2022 at 2:00 PM--

With the "dead" portion of the NFL offseason amongst us and the San Francisco 49ers defense seeming deeper than ever, it's the perfect time to do an interesting exercise with the 49ers defense: an all-defense fantasy draft using only 49ers players currently on the roster.

49ers RedZone co-host Rohan Chakravarthi teamed up with Suneil of So Real Sports Talk to draft the best defensive rosters possible in a snake draft, with tough decisions at almost every position, highlighting the idea that the 49ers will likely entertain training camp battles for roster spots.

Here are the final rosters:

Defensive Line

Team Rohan: Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, Javon Kinlaw, Kemoko Turay
Team Suneil: Samson Ebukam, Hassan Ridgeway, Jordan Willis, and Charles Omenihu


Team Rohan: Jeremiah Gemmel, Azeez Al-Shaair, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles
Team Suneil: Dre Greenlaw, Fred Warner, Oren Burks


Team Rohan: Charvarius Ward, Emmanuel Moseley, Samuel Womack
Team Suneil: Ambry Thomas, Jason Verrett, Darqueze Dennard


Team Rohan: George Odum, Dontae Johnson
Team Suneil: Talanoa Hufanga, Jimmie Ward

Despite using just one defensive roster, two entire feasible starting lineups were created, showcasing the depth on this 49ers roster, which will lead to several training camp battles all across the board, especially between some established veterans and potential-stricken inexperienced players.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains

Recap: 49ers ride defense to grind out 13-0 win over Saints

The 49ers may not have gotten the same type of performance from their offense that they saw in their 38-10 win over the Cardinals in Mexico City last Monday night, but their defense more than rose to the occasion on Sunday, pitching a 13-0 home shutout against the New Orleans Saints to send the team to their fourth consecutive win. The Saints had multiple

'Mission Accomplished': 49ers defense talks shutting down Saints, RB Alvin Kamara

The San Francisco 49ers defense came into Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints having shut out three consecutive teams in the third and fourth quarters of their last three wins. On Sunday they took it to another level, shutting out the Saints for all four quarters in a 13-0 win that gave the 49ers their fourth victory in a row. The performance came at the right time for the 49ers offense, which faced a tough task against a stout Saints defense and wasn't running on all cylinders the way they were in their previous win, a dominant 38-10 showing over the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico last Monday. But 13 points was more than enough on this day for the 49ers defense, who held the Saints to 260 yards of total offense and just 63 yards on the ground in front of a home crowd

49ers defense eager to face Dolphins, prove Chiefs game was a fluke

The Kansas City Chiefs offense currently ranks No. 1 in the NFL in total yards and points scored. The unit put up 42 points on the San Francisco 49ers defense when the two teams met at Levi's Stadium on October 23. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo gifted the Chiefs two more points on a safety for a total of 44. "In the Chiefs game, what we didn't do, we didn't get off the field on third down because we didn't make plays," defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said after Thursday's practice. "We busted coverages. We weren't where we were supposed to be. We didn't do our job, and when you don't do your job consistently, you'll get embarrassed, as we did in that Chiefs game. "And it's nothing that they did that surprised us. It's guys just being on it each and every
