San Francisco 49ers Training Camp: Week 1 Stock Report

Head coach Jim Harbaugh has already endured a slew of challanges in the 49ers' first week of training camp.

The first week of the San Francisco 49ers training camp is underway, and head coach Jim Harbaugh already has plenty of things to think about as the team shapes up for what promises to be a compelling 2014 NFL season.

In hindsight, perhaps six or seven months from now, we may look back at these infant storylines and say those proverbial lines like, "I told you so," or "you heard it here first."

Such is the nature of the 49ers and the NFL in general.

While training camp is merely a glimpse into what each team is gearing up for en route to the regular season, we can take away a number of significant factors and evidence that sheds light on what the team is shaping up to be and how those preparations are going.

San Francisco has already had plenty of storylines leading up to this point.

There have been holdouts, contract extensions, rookie development and off-the-field issues. 

It just wouldn't be an offseason without such news to grace our headlines, wouldn't it?

But now these stories come to a point—now we can begin to speculate how all of these, and more, factor into what will happen on the football field in the coming weeks.

For the 49ers, we need to look at a number of questions and see how each potential dilemma or issue is being evaluated and potentially solved.

With just under a week of training camp in the books, we use that as a backdrop. In this slideshow, let us take an in-depth perspective at six areas of concern and determine whether San Francisco's stock in these categories is rising or falling.

Like anything else in the NFL, there are ebbs and flows, risers and fallers. 

Let's see who fits into which category from the 49ers' vantage point.
