With the 2013 NFL Combine fast approaching (February 23), the San Francisco 49ers are in complete prospect-breakdown mode.

Fresh off a Super Bowl defeat, both team officials and 49er fans want nothing more than a total immersion within a forward-looking mindset.

We’ll now highlight 10 such prospects that the 49ers—and you the fan—must closely watch at the NFL Combine.

 

Note: All 40 times are unofficial, and will serve as reference points before players run their official times this weekend.
