Aside from No. 1 corner Rashard Robinson, the Niners have a number of different competitions and options to round out the depth chart.
Robinson is a clear-cut starter, and that’s just fine. But the remaining spots at this position were completely up for grabs, and it wasn’t as if San Francisco had legitimate starting material opposite the second-year pro.

Two weeks into training camp, we’re starting to get a clearer picture on how this roster turns out. A number of players have started to separate themselves from the competition.

- Zach Franklin*
- Prince Charles Iworah
- Dontae Johnson
- Keith Reaser
- Will Redmond
- Rashard Robinson
- K’Waun Williams
- Ahkello Witherspoon*
