5 Sleepers to Watch in San Francisco 49ers' Camp
Associated Press
Lawrence Okoye is a sleeper to watch during 49ers training camp.

Inevitably, every season a sleeper or two surprises us and makes the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster.

Among the surprises last year were long-snapper Kevin McDermott and special teams ace Raymond Ventrone.  

Going into this year's training camp (which starts for rookies on July 16), the 49ers have plenty of sleepers who could wreck the team's predicted depth chart.  

A sleeper for this article is defined as a player who is a long shot or on the roster bubble. I'm also looking for players who haven't had much on-field success. For example, Brandon Lloyd is on the roster bubble, but we all know he's capable of making plays on Sundays. Some of his teammates, mostly younger players, are relatively unknown and have a shot at shooting past veterans onto the roster during training camp. 

I considered these players, among others, as nearly roster locks (eliminating them from inclusion on this slideshow): Bruce Ellington, Chris Borland, Corey Lemonier and Joe Looney.
