Winners/Losers of San Francisco 49ers' Offseason so Far
Rookie running back Carlos Hyde will look to place his stamp on the 2014 49ers season.

There are always risers and fallers when it comes to any NFL offseason. The San Francisco 49ers are no exception to this statement.

San Francisco enjoys having one of the most stacked rosters in the league. The group of incumbent players, paired with an influx of draft picks and offseason acquisitions, creates the mandatory competition that successful teams need in order to develop a championship-caliber franchise.

The 49ers are well on their way to doing this.

In formulating the final 53-man roster, San Francisco's coaching staff will have to closely evaluate its plethora of players—90 to be exact—eventually whittling down the number after organized team activities (OTAs), mandatory minicamp and the NFL preseason have taken place. 

Some players shine while others disappoint. That's just the nature of the beast. 

So let's take a closer look at some of the biggest winners and losers of the 49ers' offseason thus far. Which players, given the opportunity, have seized it to the fullest? In contrast, which 49ers have suffered setbacks?

In this slideshow, we take a look at eight players—four winners and four losers—who have either stood out or are in danger of falling by the wayside.

Additionally, we shall offer a brief prediction as to what the future holds for each individual player entering Week 1 of the upcoming season.

There are a lot of factors that need to be considered. Depth is an obvious concern and injuries can play a significant role. Contractual issues can also work their way into the equation.

These aspects, and more, give us a good insight into exactly what San Francisco has on its plate as the coaching staff evaluates its roster heading towards the 2014 season.
