San Francisco 49ers: Defensive Scouting Guide for the 2013 East-West Shrine Game

Earlier Friday, we published a scouting guide for the San Francisco 49ers on eight intriguing offensive prospects in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game.

We highlighted two mid- to lower-round players at each skill position, including quarterback, running back, tight end and wide receiver.

Now it’s time to move to the defensive side of the ball.

Quick note to the incredulous masses: Yes, the Super Bowl-contending 49ers boast the league’s No. 3 total defense.  And yes, they have the majority of their starters locked into long-term contracts.

But scouting for future prospects is a never-ending, and fully necessary process. The East-West Shrine game, while lacking in big-name glamour, is an important part of identifying NFL contributors down the line.

Let’s begin with some NFL hopefuls operating in the trenches and transition through each level until highlighting safeties on the back end.

Note: The game is scheduled for Saturday, January 19 at 4 p.m. ET. Live action at Tropicana Field can be seen on NFL Network.
