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.

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



Yates: Holding onto Jimmy Garoppolo this season makes sense for 49ers

No matter who the San Francisco 49ers select at No. 3 overall later this month, the speculation surrounding the future of Jimmy Garoppolo will heat up. Right now, the plan is to hold onto the veteran quarterback, allowing the rookie to sit and learn in his first year. Still, there will be those who believe the 49ers should trade Garoppolo and that his trade value will plummet as soon as his eventual replacement is drafted. Field Yates joined ESPN's Get Up! and explained why it might be in the Niners' best interest to hold onto Garoppolo for the upcoming season, which head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have stated as the plan. "We still plan on him leading us and getting as far as we can with him,"



Mock Draft Roundup: The Mac Jones-to-49ers Chatter is Deafening

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.



Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

By Griff Montana

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future. While the team has maintained a public stance of keeping current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this coming season, this trade signified its dissatisfaction with Garoppolo's services, as the 49ers are expected to select his successor with their third overall pick in the draft at the end of this month. Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,
