Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke will have some extremely tough roster decisions.

The San Francisco 49ers have a stacked roster heading into their 2014 training camp. The competition for jobs will be intense, and general manager Trent Baalke and head coach Jim Harbaugh will have some extremely tough roster decisions.

With a 53-man roster, one key question will be how many players the 49ers keep at each position.

In addition, will special teams aces make the squad over other players who could provide more positional depth?  

The 49ers will carry three specialists, so the actual roster drops down to only 50 players. Phil Dawson, Andy Lee and long snapper Kevin McDermott are all in line to make the team.

Let's take a closer look at some dark-horse candidates who will be fighting for a spot on the team. We will also assess the relative chances for each player.
