49ers release first regular season depth chart of 2016

Sep 6, 2016 at 3:41 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers released their first depth chart of the 2016 regular season and immediately everyone started breaking it down.

There are some new numbers for 49ers newcomers. WR Rod Streater will wear No. 81 while DT Taylor Hart will wear No. 96. Quarterback Christian Ponder will change numbers from No. 5 to No. 15, mostly due to the fact that punter Bradley Pinion wears the old number.

Listed on the depth chart are three first-team wide receivers. They are Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton, and Jeremy Kerley. Kerley is also listed as a punt returner on special teams.

Arik Armstead, Mike Purcell, and Quinton Dial are listed with the first-team defensive line. Rookie DE DeForest Buckner is listed as a backup.

The first-team offensive line has the following from left to right: Joe Staley, Zane Beadles, Daniel Kilgore, Anthony Davis, and Trent Brown. Rookie OG Joshua Garnett is listed as a backup.

You can view the depth chart below.


Of course, it is important to not read too much into this depth chart. Playing time during Monday's home opener against the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium may look very different.

Steve Young: 'No question' that Zach Wilson is the 'first choice' of the 49ers

Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young brought up an interesting point during his Wednesday interview on KNBR. The San Francisco 49ers don't expect—or hope not—to be drafting as high as No. 12 in upcoming years. So, if they wanted one of the top quarterbacks, and with next year's crop of prospects not looking as attractive as this year's, moving up in this draft was probably a smart move. The 49ers would probably never find a way to get into the top three if they sit in the low 20s—or even better, at No. 32. At No. 12, however, they had a shot and pulled it off. They still had to give up a lot, though, to make a move. Now, the choices appear to be Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones. Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson look slated to go one and

NFL Media analysts Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah went through the exercise of predicting the first three picks for the San Francisco 49ers in this year's draft. The team currently owns one selection in each of the first three rounds — Nos. 3, 43, and 102 overall. The duo took turns during the Path to the Draft segment on NFL Network, with Brooks going first. Jeremiah recently had San Francisco selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones in his latest mock draft. Brooks has been critical of the idea that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch gave up so much draft capital to select



Breer: 49ers started looking into drafting a quarterback after the season ended

The San Francisco 49ers knew a change was needed immediately after the 2020 season ended. At one point, the team had Super Bowl aspirations. The team ended up finishing with just six wins. Much of that had to do with the unprecedented number of injuries the roster endured. Much of that had to do with the unavailability of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the decision to draft a rookie quarterback came soon after the season's conclusion. That's when coaches and front office personnel started doing extensive homework on the incoming rookie quarterbacks. "(Head coach Kyle) Shanahan, (GM John) Lynch, assistant GM Adam
