Yesterday, I debuted an exercise with the 49ers defense: an all-defense fantasy draft using only 49ers players currently on the roster.

With nearly 20 defensive linemen on the roster and several star players on the team, the 49ers continue to compile a strong defensive roster, matching their top-end talent with significant depth as they look to contend in 2022.

49ers RedZone co-host Rohan Chakravarthi teamed up with John Chapman of the 49ers Rush Podcast to draft the best defensive rosters possible in a snake draft, balancing out positional value based on the 49ers' strengths and weaknesses.

Here are the final rosters:

Defensive Line

Team Rohan: Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, Hassan Ridgeway, Kemoko Turay
Team John: Drake Jackson, Javon Kinlaw, Maurice Hurst, Charles Omenihu


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


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


Team Rohan: George Odum, Dontae Johnson
Team John: 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.

Who ended with the better roster?

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 27-7, earning their first victory of the 2022 campaign, but it came with bad news, as second-year quarterback Trey Lance is expected to miss the rest of the 2022 campaign with an ankle fracture. Here are the defensive grades for the 49ers in Week 2: Defensive Line: A Nick Bosa continued his dominance, recording two sacks in the 27-7 bout, while also having a team-high seven pressures on the day as the leader of the defensive line.

What Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett said about Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers' defense and run game

Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett jumped on a conference call with reporters, sharing his perspective on the upcoming Week 3 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Here are a few of the topics on which he touched. What do you see in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? "Having so much experience going against him, so much respect for him and his game," Hackett said. "He has an amazing release. He has the ability to get the ball out quick. He makes quick, fast decisions. I mean, he's a very good football player who's had a lot of success. I think I was at Jacksonville in 2017 when he [went to the 49ers], and he actually beat us toward the end of the season there. We were, I think, 10-and-4 or something like that, and he came out,

Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, 49ers defense shoulder blame in loss to Broncos

The Denver Broncos offense scored only nine points against the San Francisco 49ers defense on Sunday night. The Niners offense, Jimmy Garoppolo specifically, provided two of the home team's 11 total points after the quarterback stepped out of the back of the end zone for a safety. The 49ers offense couldn't get much going with Garoppolo at the helm. The quarterback finished the game 18-of-29 for 211 yards, a touchdown, an interception, and a passer rating of 81.3 in his first start of the season. Yet, the defense accepted the blame for San Francisco's record falling to 1-2 in a game in which they were favored. "We've got to play a full four-quarter game," linebacker Fred Warner said after the 11-10 loss in Denver. "It doesn't matter how dominant we are throughout

49ers mailbag: Is Shanahan on the hot seat? Did the coach not want to draft Trey Lance? How's the interior OL look? And other questions answered

The San Francisco 49ers won...and lost on Sunday. The win came by beating the Seattle Seahawks, something the 49ers have not done much of over the last 10 years. The loss came when Trey Lance broke his ankle. He's believed to be lost for the season. It's been a rough first two weeks for 49ers fans. First there was the frustrating loss in Chicago, and now the injury to Lance. And to make matters worse, running back Ty Davis-Price sustained a high-ankle sprain that could sideline him for a few weeks. As you well know, Elijah Mitchell will already miss about two months with an MCL sprain. Injuries are beginning to mount. But fortunately for you, I'm fully healthy and ready to share this week's 49ers mailbag with you. Let's get to it. How many QBs
