Sep 6, 2016 at 3:58 PM--


Newcomers to the San Francisco 49ers' roster were assigned their official numbers for the upcoming season. WR Rod Streater, who was acquired via a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs on September 3, will wear No. 81. DT Taylor Hart, who was claimed by the 49ers on Monday, will wear No. 96.

Anquan Boldin wore No. 81 last season. He is now with the Detroit Lions. Corey Lemonier wore No. 96 last season. He was released on Saturday.

QB Christian Ponder will be changing his number from No. 5 to No. 15. No. 5 is currently worn by punter Bradley Pinion.

No. 15 was previously worn by WR DeAndre Smelter, who was waived with an injury settlement.


All of this was revealed when the 49ers released their first "unofficial" depth chart of the season.

The 49ers open the season on Monday, September 12 at 7:20 PM against the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium.

Deebo at RB? Jennings at FB? Why the position changes can even confuse 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel played 10 snaps in the backfield, rushing eight times for 79 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He wasn't the only receiver that lined up in the backfield. Jauan Jennings had one snap as a fullback. And let's not forget Trent Williams, who was an eligible receiver on one play. However, it's not like he lined up on the outside. And everyone knew Jimmy Garoppolo was likely going to look in the big offensive lineman's direction, leading to the defense being aggressive with him on coverage. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR on Wednesday afternoon and explained why playing some of his guys out of position, as



49ers DE Nick Bosa 'starting to get the hang' of how to get high sack numbers

By Kirk Larrabee

Nick Bosa notched his ninth and tenth sacks of the 2021 season on Sunday, and if what he said after the game is any indication, there could be a lot more to come. Bosa collected those two sacks in the 49ers' 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, which was the seventh game this season where he's had at least one sack. He's now one ahead of the nine sacks he notched as a rookie in 2019 and is three away from league leader Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Watching players like Garrett, and others, who rack up high amounts of sacks has helped teach Bosa how to get big numbers of his own. "I think I've definitely improved a lot. I think I'm starting to get the hang of just how to really get sacks, get numbers," Bosa said Sunday. "My rookie year,

49ers' Kyle Shanahan Had His Peter Pan Moment

By Brian Renick

One of my favorite movies as a child was the 1991 classic Hook, a Steven Spielberg-directed sequel to the Peter Pan story, starring Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan. The premise of the movie, for those that haven't seen it, follows an adult Peter Pan as he returns to Neverland to rescue his children from the still Pan-obsessed Captain James Hook. The Lost Boys, the group of perpetual children that Pan led while still in Neverland, do not recognize the now grown-up Peter Pan, nor does he remember his time there. Midway through the movie, after an epic, and colorful food fight, a Lost Boy named Pockets stands in front of a kneeling Peter Pan, playing with his face until he realizes, and exclaims, "oh, there you are
