Having a veteran quarterback looking over his shoulder at a high-selection rookie passer is the recipe for a compelling NFL storyline. That will be one of the most talked-about storylines coming out of Santa Clara starting next week when the San Francisco 49ers report to training camp.

One of the losses was pass rusher Nick Bosa, who was coming off an NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. With the young defender in the lineup, the 49ers' defensive line proved problematic for opposing offenses.
