The San Francisco 49ers have made several changes to their roster this offseason. GM Trent Baalke and head coach Jim Harbaugh have acquired a great deal of talent to upgrade the offense, while keeping the 49ers' staunch defense intact.
These changes, as well as performances during the spring workouts, have provided us with some definite winners and losers this offseason.
I have listed six winners and six losers, thus far, as the 49ers head towards training camp. The key thing to remember is that the status of any of these players could change depending on how well they perform this summer, injuries and a host of other factors.
A player classified as a winner has shown something in the spring that has elevated him in the eyes of the coaching staff. He also could be someone that has been helped by the offseason roster moves made by the 49ers.
A player classified as a loser is listed because his place on the roster, or his playing time, could be adversely affected by the 49ers' offseason moves. The other factor could be an injury, which will keep that player out for an extended period of time.
Let's take a closer look at the 12 players I have chosen to focus on.
