Breaking Down the San Francisco 49ers' Biggest Training Camp Projects

Colin Kaepernick will be expected to produce bigger numbers with an improved wide receiver corps.

As training camp approaches, the San Francisco 49ers prepare to get to work to once again make a run at the Super Bowl.

The 49ers have been very close to the title in the past three seasons, including a loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII two seasons ago. With salary-cap constraints and the advancing age of some of their core players, the time is now for this group.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff come into camp with a solid nucleus. There are realistically only two starting jobs open—at center and at one cornerback position. The nickel or slot corner spot, a key position on the defense, is also up for grabs.

In order for the 49ers to have success this year, they must stay healthy and get positive answers to several currently lingering questions. Many integral players must step up and either do more than they have in the past.

Training camp will be the first in-depth look at these players this season. Let's take a more detailed view of six of these key 49ers. These are the men who must improve and take on a more prominent role on the team.
