San Francisco 49ers: 5 Players to Watch For in Training Camp
The excitement is building! We are only two and a half weeks away from the beginning of training camp! Our beloved San Francisco 49ers will be back on the field. We will witness a whole new coaching staff and different offensive and defensive schemes. Of the players, who should we be keeping an eye out for? Niner Noise takes a look at five players who will have something to prove once camp starts.
We at Niner Noise have recently covered the five best position battles to watch for and five boldest predictions for training camp. But which San Francisco 49ers individual players should we be keeping a close eye on?
We could go in any number of directions with this one. There are players coming back from injury, there are others who are changing positions, there are others who need to prove to the coaches they deserve a place on the roster and there are the rookies who haven’t seen a real NFL training camp yet.
Not just for the individual players, this camp is important for the whole team. After last season’s extremely disappointing and deflating 5-11 campaign, getting on the road early with some success would be nice.
We finally see the players in pads and see the real hitting start. We can finally see the offense and the defense take shape and start showing their knowledge of the game plan. It is critical the players know and can execute the game plan. For any hope to use it as an advantage on the field, it has to be executed.
Execution was a sore point last season. The players might as well have executed themselves by putting their heads under a guillotine. It was hard to watch at times. It wasn’t 49er football we have been accustomed to seeing.
So let’s take a look at five players who we should be following closely.
Human nature will appear in some cases because, well, we all have players that we find better and are at a different stage of their career than others.
Please feel free to compile your list before starting through our rundown of players to watch. Which players do you think will be on the list?
