San Francisco 49ers Training Camp: 5 Early Storylines to Watch
USA TODAY Sports
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick prepares to lead a new-look offense in 2014.

The San Francisco 49ers will enter the complete phase of their 2014 training camp on Thursday, July 24.

Rookies have already reported—their attendance required on July 16.

Like every other team concluding their offseason, the 49ers have their own plethora of storylines that deserve attention. Almost all of these were conceived in the wake of what happened a season ago and how San Francisco's brass went about addressing such issues.

There are some clear examples on the surface. 

The 49ers offense, so reliant on the running game in recent years, may look to be more pass happy in 2014, following a number of additions at wide receiver.

We can speculate how San Francisco's new cast of rookies will impact the team this season, as well as projecting the influence of second-year players. 

There is the ongoing development of quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the wake of his lofty contract extension and, of course, there are questions about holdouts.

These storylines and more will be at the heart of the 49ers' approach to training camp. This is the point when pads are donned for the first time, contact is permissible and San Francisco looks to make the final adjustments before entering the preseason.

In this slideshow, we break down the top five storylines that mandate our attention in the coming days.

Let's take a look.
