Early Projections for the San Francisco 49ers' Final 53-Man Roster
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

As the reigning NFC champions, it is not hard to imagine that the majority of the San Francisco 49ers roster is locked in.

In all three phases of the game, the Niners tout distinguished role players—many of which are top-five players at their respective positions. However, on a team like this, it is difficult to predict depth because jobs are constantly on the line.

Now, with the incoming and outgoing players, there is reason to anticipate another personnel changeover to some degree.

There are a lot of new names, as well as returning players, who have not had an opportunity to show what they can do at the next level. This should make for a highly competitive training camp in Santa Clara.

Heading into camp and OTAs, players are going to know that behind the entrenched starters, the competition is wide open in 2013. And if you can secure a slot on the team, therein lies potential for an increased role down the line.

With San Francisco’s updated roster, we project the 49ers’ final 53-man roster for the 2013-14 season.
