Optimism...A concept that hasn't been in the Bay area for a while. It's the feeling that this could be the year the 49ers break through back into the stardom of the 80s and early 90s.
The reason why we have optimism is because we have a roster full of potential. In this coming year there will be many 49ers players to watch but I've managed to whittle it down to my own top five.
Included are the players, the reason to watch them, and what you can expect from them.
