Analysis:

  • 30 new players for 2017, keeping 23 players from a 2016 2-14 team. (57% new players)
  • Of the offensive skill positions (QB, WR, RB, TE), 13 of the 15 players are new (87%)
  • Every single draft pick this year made the team with the exception of Joe Williams who was placed on IR. So, technically, he made the team
  • Niners got young with a good mixture of veteran leaders on both sides of the ball. This is absolutely a move in the right direction
  • Positions of weakness are LB, CB, FS and OG so look for ShanaLynch to replace some players in these positions with players cut by other teams. Would love to see them pick up T.J. Ward who was cut by the Broncos
