The good news is that the San Francisco 49ers are well on their way towards another window of contention. The unfortunate news is that what you’ve seen so far is only the beginning. Here’s a possibility of what left to come.
The franchise has seen many changes along the roster, but in a month from now, the depth chart could be even different for the upcoming season.
After placing capable veterans at their respected positions as a result of free agency, John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan more than aced the NFL Draft.
What this means is that the 49ers could be further along in the rebuild process than most people originally thought.

The draft didn’t just bring in valuable depth to the talent-hungry roster, it also brought in a total of five potential starters to a team that is filled with question marks.
Whether this years draft class is really that good, or last years team was really that bad, the roster of today is still miles ahead of where the team was sitting only one year ago.
This has given the 49ers something that they haven’t had in many years: options.
These options could maximize the final 53-man roster enough to send overpriced veterans out the front gate.
No matter what cuts are made, there is still plenty of work to be done.
Here’s a potential offseason list that could be implemented before Week 1 of the regular season.
