Gregg Rosenthal: Blaine Gabbert, Quinton Patton projected as 49ers starters

May 13, 2016 at 7:22 AM--


NFL.com's Around the NFL has produced a piece that projects the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams.

Who did Gregg Rosenthal project as the starters for the San Francisco 49ers? Find out below.

Offense
QB: Blaine Gabbert
RB: Carlos Hyde
WR1: Torrey Smith
WR2: Quinton Patton
WR3 DeAndre Smelter
TE: Vance McDonald
LT: Joe Staley
LG: Josh Garnett
C: Daniel Kilgore
RG: Zane Beadles
RT: Trent Brown

Defense
DL: Arik Armstead
DT: Ian Williams
DT: DeForest Buckner
LB: NaVorro Bowman
OLB: Aaron Lynch
OLB: Ahmad Brooks
CB1: Trumaine Brock
CB2: Dontae Johnson
CB3/S: Jimmie Ward
S: Antoine Bethea
S: Eric Reid

The following are some interesting notes and opinions from his projected camp battles.

Logic dictates that Kaepernick's talent will win out over Gabbert eventually, but at this stage it appears the organization prefers Gabbert to win this job.

The passing game has less talent than any group in the NFC, and its not close.

The front seven is dangerous after pairing college teammates Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner. The defensive line is deep enough to put Glenn Dorsey and promising youngster Quinton Dial on the bench.

Michael Wilhoite and Gerald Hodges will battle for an ILB role, but I didn't include either as a starter because the 49ers figure to be in nickel defense with five defensive backs most downs.

Mock drafts are a dime a dozen this time of year, and most of them wind up projecting something unexciting that has already been projected several times before.

Fowler put together a complete seven-round mock for the 49ers using The Draft Network's endlessly entertaining Mock Draft Machine and came up with an intriguing list of players that includes two of college football's biggest offensive stars over the past two seasons.

I didn't get all the teams, but I was told that the Denver Broncos, the San Francisco 49ers are two of them. "I also asked the source about the Jets and the Dolphins because they have the most draft capital this year and the next few years. I was told the Jets, 'Eh, probably not.' Maybe more so the Dolphins as far as viability." Watson has expressed frustration with the Texans organization and has requested a trade. The
