Predicting the 49ers Starting Lineup After the 1st Wave of Free-Agent Signings

Since the clock struck zero and opened the floodgates to free agency, general manager Trent Baalke and the San Francisco 49ers have barely flinched. 

They crawled out of their cave to complete a couple of moves that already seemed to be in place but nothing earth-shattering. It was not too surprising either. They have their team. Most of the starters are locked in place, and this is a club that builds through the NFL draft. 

That being said, we have a good idea of what the 2014 roster will look like, all the way down to the first-stringers on the depth chart.

In this piece, we'll paint a picture of the 22 starters on offense and defense to offer up an idea of who will be taking the field in this new league year. We also don't need to talk about special teams, as most already understand how vital punter Andy Lee and placekicker Phil Dawson are (both are seasoned All-Pros in their own right).

Now, while we’re just listing presumed starters, there are second-stringers who expect to have significant roles, as many are being groomed for the future. They’ll be demarcated by a star next to their name. Each player will have a full analysis that details who he is, what he does and the role that he is expect to have.
