49ers vs. Broncos: Bold Predictions for Key San Francisco Stars, Rookies

Sunday afternoon at 4 EST, the San Francisco 49ers will take the field at Mile High Stadium for a Week 3 preseason matchup against the Denver Broncos

The next day, Aug. 27, to be exact, Jim Harbaugh and his coaching staff will be forced to trim the roster from 90 players down to 75. 

With so many jobs on the line, the competition on the gridiron will be intense to say the least. Roster hopefuls will be flying around the field in an attempt to convince the decision makers to let them hang around. 

But in San Francisco, anyone donning the Red and Gold treats every rep on the gridiron as if it's their last—whether it be Patrick Willis or Eric Bakhtiari. 

That's just the Forty Niner Way.

So, needless to say, tuning into Sunday's matchup would be a pretty smart idea. You're likely to see 15 participants playing their final game as 49ers, but none of them will go out without a fight. 

For the sole purpose of spicing things up a bit, I'm going to toss out a few bold predictions for some key 49ers that you should monitor throughout the action. 

Well, it is preseason. I suppose we can't get too carried away. 

It'll be fun, though, so let's go!
