No. 10: Wide Receiver
The wide receiver position heading into training camp was up for grabs for any player who decided to step up. The problem?
At first, it seemed as though the 49ers had decent depth at the position with key additions like Eric Rogers — a big, physical WR out of the CFL who seemed poised to flourish in a Chip Kelly offense.
Rookies Aaron Burbridge and Bryce Treggs showed flashes of playmaking ability.
Second year WR DeAndre Smelter was finally healthy and ready to contribute, and WR Bruce Ellington was poised for a breakout year.
Fast forward to Week 1 and you will see Rogers is out for the season with a torn ACL. Ellington is out for the season with a torn hamstring, and both Smelter and Treggs have been released.
This group has thinned out and, with the sloppy QB play, the passing game is going to be some tough sledding in 2016.
